Toast of the Coast: A Food and Beverage Social Series

Toast of the Coast: A Food and Beverage Social Series


Join us for our 8th Annual Toast of the Coast events at The Fish House! The theme for this year’s events focuses on Southern Traditions. Each event in the series will feature a hands-on demonstration from a pro or local with all of the cool stories to share, with fantastic food and beverage pairings. In addition, each event will include a special takeaway to help you re-create the event at home! As we will be continuing to observe health guidelines, social distancing and limited seating, reservations are required. Each event will begin promptly at 5:30 p.m. To reserve your seat, please contact Taylor Dawson —, 850-287-0200.


The series is as follows:



Thursday, September 17: Low Country Boil

A low country boil is the southeastern coast’s equivalent to a New England clambake. Take the fresh shellfish catch of the day, dump it in a giant pot with some vegetables and sausage, and you are halfway to a giant feast for you and your friends. Join us out on The Deck and learn the basics in this class; how to set the table, boil the feast and eat these crustaceans. The boil will feature shrimp, blue crab. In addition, we have four beers featured form Oyster City Brewing Company. Participants will take home their own boil spice mix to get them started on their first event at home. Event cost is $45 per person (plus tax and gratuity).



October 29: Whiskey and War Stories

Join us for a night of whiskey and war stories; a four course whiskey and food event. The men of ODA 595 have been making their own Whiskey for several years now under the brand Horse Soldiers Bourbon Whiskey. We are fortunate to have Capt. Summers, the founder of the brand who now resides in Navarre, as our speaker for the event. He will be on hand to share whiskey and war stories for the evening. The brand is steeped in the rich history of the special forces. Their bottles having been cast in steel from the Ground Zero wreckage and their logo is the statue placed at Ground Zero commemorating the “America’s Response” to the attacks of 9/11. Their team has been involved in every major conflict since the Vietnam War. Their next mission is to serve Horse Soldier bourbon, their legacy in a bottle. Event cost is $65 per person (plus tax and gratuity).




Thursday, November 12: High on the Hog: A Whole Beast Feast

Back by popular demand, Fish House Sous Chef Chad Gorey will be presenting a Whole Beast Feast — the whole hog — discussing the slow-roast cooking process including a discussion of the cuts of the pig, how to best prepare each, how to dress the beast for a full roast along with the step-by-step instructions for how to roast — including information for your own roaster. Once the beast is complete, it will be offered up family style and served with a selection of Southern sides. We will be pairing the roast with a selection of Woodford Reserve drinks. Participants will take a bottle of Chef Chad’s homemade BBQ sauce made special for the occasion. Event cost is $45 per person (plus tax and gratuity).
