    Grayton Seafood Co. OPENS Wednesday, Nov. 18... serving lunch and dinner Wed thru Sun...

    Grayton Seafood Co. has been working for months on preparation of opening day in their new restaurant at Uptown Grayton in Grayton Beach. Owner Kenny Griner is no stranger to successful restaurants. He opened Chet's Seafood in Pace, Florida 25 years ago and has been serving fresh, local seafood ever since with a very loyal following. Kenny has roots in Grayton Beach and has been scouting the area for the "just right" restaurant space for several years. He found that perfect place in Uptown Grayton, signed a lease and began remodeling.

    "I want it to have the vibe that it has been around forever. Our logo even says "Since 1890", which is actually when Grayton Beach was founded, but it's fun to play on that. Our motto is Grayt Food and Tall Tales," says Kenny.

    Grayton Seafood Co. will serve only Gulf shrimp and locally sourced seafood. It will always be local and fresh. Kenny insists, "You support your local fisherman and economy by buying local seafood." Kenny also says, "If you never run out of seafood, you don't have fresh seafood." Grayton Seafood Co. recognizes that procuring local seafood every day of the year is dependent on variables such as seasonality, weather and fishing restrictions and that means their selections will always be changing.

    Grayton Seafood Co. will open Wednesday, November 18 at 11:00am. For the winter, hours will be Wednesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m, and will go to full time hours for the 2016 season. Follow Grayton Seafood Co. at Facebook.com/graytonseafoodco and on Instagram at @GraytonSeafoodCo for updates.

    Grayton Seafood Co. is enjoying a very warm welcome from Grayton Beach locals and people from all over SoWal. We enjoyed our lunch last week and looking forward to checking out the more extensive dinner menu. The fresh fried mullet was such a treat - very hard to find around here. The cole slaw may be my new favorite. Meeting owner Kenny was a pleasure as he seems to fit right in at Uptown Grayton, serving up some good stuff with his daughter and other friends on staff. Kenny is thrilled to be in Grayton Beach - a long time dream come true.

    I believe this local seafood spot has filled a niche in Grayton Beach and will be well supported by SoWal locals and the visitors will follow. Last week's lunch was nearly a full house. The atmosphere is perfectly Old Grayton. We'll be back!

    For now the hours are Wed-Sun, lunch and dinner, with a special Sunday brunch menu.

    Frozen french fries? And the ultra-suck "crispy" variety to boot. Pass. Will not patronize.

    Not a fan of the fries, and admitted this to the owner... but get the onion rings! I hear they are delicious. Not to mention grits made with the real deal. Baked potato for me at dinner anyway.
