Restaurant group’s newest concept slated for early fall
Sept. 11, 2023
Special to 30A Food & Wine
SANTA ROSA BEACH – Hartley Restaurant Group, known for bringing diverse flavors to the 30A area, is thrilled to introduce its latest venture, Village Market at Watersound Town Center, nicknamed “Watersound Village Market.” Owned by local entrepreneurs, George and Ann Hartley, this fresh dining establishment is set to open its doors in late September to early October.
George and Ann have been serving the 30A community for over 25 years, and now they’re bringing all your favorite dishes to one spot with Watersound Village Market, the sister restaurant to Seagrove Village Market Café and Surfing Deer.
“Our colorful travels and life experiences have inspired us to curate a menu that pays homage to all of your favorite dishes. At Watersound Village Market, you’ll find your favorites from our entire collection of restaurants. Every dish is meticulously crafted, reflecting our profound love for great food,” said the Hartleys.
On the menu, diners can expect such signature dishes such as the San Miguel Bowl, created from the Hartley’s travels to Mexico; Hot Tangy Fish on Asian Slaw, a dish inspired by Ann’s travels to spa weekends with her girlfriends in Texas; and the Fried Shrimp Po Boy, a sandwich so fresh and good, it’s why The Hartleys bought the Seagrove Village Market. Similar to Seagrove Village Market Cafe, the menu will offer deep-fried love, in addition to other famous dishes compiled from several of the family’s past concepts.
The Watersound Village Market is located at 86 N. Watersound Pkwy, at Watersound Town Center on Highway 98. The expansive 5,800-square-foot, standalone building will feature 268 seats, including a beautiful wrap-around porch, and an outdoor patio area. The restaurant will be open six days a week, offering both lunch and dinner options, as well as a robust wine menu and full bar. In addition to the full-service restaurant experience, there will also be a dedicated section offering convenient grab-and-go items, to include ready-made dips and soups, and family-style take-and-bake dinners to be cooked at home.
The grand opening festivities and dates will be announced soon, promising a celebration of their customers’ favorite recipes and 30A spirit.
