ABOUT US

With Nearly two decades of restaurant management and menu development experience, Bryce Jarvis knows what a customer expects from a resort restaurant. “I’m passionate about providing a great experience for our customer, and the Sunset Bay Café gives me the opportunity to share what I love best about food and Destin, Sandestin, The Beaches of South Walton, and the Emerald Coast with both visitors and locals alike.”

The Sunset Bay Café space has been a number of different restaurants over the years, but Bryce, and his co-owner Gary Jarvis, feel the location needs a locals touch to really  make the most out of the views and the ingredients available to the kitchen. As captain of The Backdown 2, Captain Jarvis lends an expert’s eye to local and sustainable seafood and fresh ingredients. “Our menu really focuses on the best ingredients available every season, “ he says. In addition to classic breakfast favorites like pancakes and waffles, diners will be able to taste some really innovative twists on classics, like Roast Beef Benedict and a fish of the day.

Located near the Linkside Conference Center, the restaurant overlooks Choctawhatchee Bay and offers a full bar, outside dining options, a Tiki bar, and “grab and go” options, perfect for the golf course, the pool, or the beach. Holy Cakes, an award winning bakery owned by Bryce’s wife Miranda, provides an assortment of muffins and cupcakes daily, and social orders by request.

The Sunset Bay Café celebrates the spirit of “Old Florida” while encouraging innovative cooking emphasizing fresh, local ingredients.
