Local Father and Son Bring Coastal Cuisine to The Village of Baytowne Wharf
Bryce Jarvis and Captain Gary Jarvis, the proud owners of Sunset Bay Cafe, located in Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, announced their newest venture: Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House. Located in the space formerly occupied by Acme Oyster House, Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House promises fresh seafood in a family-friendly environment.
With Chef Jay Ammons and Sous Chef Daniel Peters at the helm, the family owned and operated restaurant will offer an innovative lunch and dinner menu utilizing the finest in locally sourced ingredients including fresh produce and sustainable seafood, delivered daily from the docks in Destin, Florida.
Born and bred in the heart of Destin, father-son duo, Gary and Bryce Jarvis, are no strangers to the seafood industry. With over 40 years of fishing in their family, both Gary and Bryce have a plethora of knowledge on all things fish. Now, with nearly two decades of restaurant management and menu development experience, the Jarvis’s are laying out their love of seafood on the table.
Opening in March 2018, Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House celebrates the spirit of “Old Florida” while encouraging innovative cooking, emphasizing fresh, local ingredients. As captain of The Backdown 2, Captain Gary Jarvis lends an expert’s eye to local seafood and fresh ingredients.
“Our menu really focuses on the best ingredients available every season,” says Captain Jarvis. “We are incredibly passionate about sustainable, quality seafood. Fresh caught wild fish is the core of our business model and we aim to provide customers with the real deal.”
The Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster Huse space has previously been a focal point in the Village of Baytowne Wharf, but Bryce and Gary feel the location needed a local’s touch to really make the most out of the family-friendly environment and the ingredients available to the kitchen.
“Slick Lips will not only be a place where customers know they are guaranteed high quality seafood, but also some of the best customer service in town,” says Bryce Jarvis.
In addition to the classic southern seafood dishes and an assortment of oysters, Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House will also offer a wide array of dishes for land-lovers such as the “Slick Burger” or the “Smoked Cheddar Bacon Bombs.” From finely cut steaks to fresh seafood platters, there’s something for everyone on the Slick Lips’ menu.
Located in the heart of The Village of Baytowne Wharf, the restaurant overlooks the bustling village and offers a full bar, oyster bar, and private group dining options. Slick Lips Seafood & Oyster House will be open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
