FOOW is the acronym for and new iteration of the restaurant formerly known as Fish Out of Water.
NOW OPEN, FOOW remains committed to offering the same high-quality service and cuisine it is known for, now in a more approachable coastal setting.
As one of the 30A area’s only large family-style restaurants and bars overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, FOOW embodies the spirit of the WaterColor community: coastal, fun, and unpretentious, with impeccable service and cuisine. A destination for eating well in lively and approachable surroundings, FOOW is “WaterColor casual” at its finest!
The menu, drinks, and interior design, coupled with a streamlined open-air kitchen, create a lively and engaging ambience- perfect for a midday break with family, a fun evening with friends or a romantic date night.
FOOW features live music seasonally; and the expanded FOOWbar offers an inspired beverage program featuring some of the world’s best tequilas, rums, and more! For large groups for special celebrations, the FOOWroom is a private getaway from the crowds, surrounded by an impressive wine cellar.
Executive Sous Chef Preetam Pardeshi oversees all culinary programming for the restaurant, creating locally-sourced Southern cuisine with global touches influenced by his own southwest Indian heritage, beloved family recipes, and world-class hospitality experience. The FOOW menu comes courtesy of Chef de Cuisine Christopher Mayhue, who brings his own Southern heritage, world travels, and exceptional culinary experience.
FOOW also has a retail store, FOOWshoppe, offering FOOW spices and sauces, as well as adults and kids apparel complete with light-hearted, fun phrases.
