Dining - Image Credit:

Goatfeathers is an excellent restaurant and seafood market located in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. You’ll find it right on 30A since 1988. Owners Eleanor and Pat Miller were inspired to name their restaurant Goatfeathers after a trip to Austria 20 years ago.

A quaint restaurant they visited there had walls covered in famous quotes from around the world and a quote about “Goatfeathers” from the 1900’s American satire author Ellis Parker Butler really caught their eye. The quote that represents this restaurant is “Goatfeathers are the distractions, sidelines and deflections that take a man’s attentions from this own business and keep him from getting ahead.” Here is a look at what you can enjoy at Goatfeathers in Florida.
