This is the beginning of my Happy Hour Blog with some really Grayt People. We call them Grayt because well, first of all, they are and secondly they own in the Preserve at Grayton Beach a lovely community along the 30a corridor between Grayton and Blue Mt. Beach, FL.
Week one we went to Cuvee 30a. This was a great happy hour with Chef Tim Creehan’s inspired Escargot for an appetizer or the flat bread pizzas that are simply lovely and light. Kyle was our server and he was excellent with splitting up bills with a large crowd and gave us top notch service too. Their House wine were only $5 per glass and it was a Kendall Jackson Camelot Cabernet. Very good. Others had the pork belly over mashed potatoes and they were excellent as well. The thin cake was to die for as Chuck stated. My spouse and I got out of there for $89 and had a great time with friends.

Week Two we decided to go to Shades at the Loop. It was dark inside and they sat us near the arcade. We did not have any children with us. The music was loud and not desirable. Their house wine was $5 a glass. They were out of the Tuna Poke as an appetizer which is what I wanted. We ordered the garlic Parmesan tator tots as an appetizer and if you order them ask for more Parmesan as it had very little and also ask that they double fry them. My spouse and I shared a turkey burger which is always very good there. It comes with fries but we got cole slaw on the side. Others had the nachos which were good, but the salsa was not good. The tuna dip was good, but a small portion. The hummus was good. Our waitress was Jessica and she was getting ready for her shift to end. She told the table how drunk she was the night before and was looking forward to going home. It was unprofessional. The replacement Tabby was better. Be careful because your gratuity is included with the bill with larger parties. We got out of there for $67. I give it three and one half stars. ***~ You can find out more about this location at http://shades30a.com/
