Way back when , a summer kitchen was an outbuilding where all the cooking was done in an effort to keep the heat out of the main house. It seemed appropriate to name this restaurant at the beach, the Summer Kitchen and to invite the owners, visitors and workers at Rosemary Beach and the surrounding communities in for a bite – and keep the heat out of your kitchen!
Established in 1999, the Summer Kitchen was the first restaurant and commercial business in Rosemary Beach. Our humble beginnings took place in the little red shack – just a walk up window serving the initial few people working, living and building at Rosemary Beach.
As has been the case for over eleven years now neighbors meet neighbors as they walk in the door, sometimes on purpose and sometimes by chance. There is a sense of comfort and community reminiscent of neighborhoods long since gone – but being revived in traditional neighborhood developments like Rosemary Beach.
