Savor seafood at Scooter’s this summer
Summer is here and Scooter’s Fish House is serving some of the freshest seafood on the Emerald Coast.
“The shrimp and the fish are always fresh from the Gulf,” said Vernon Diedrich, one of the managing owners of Scooter’s.
Located on Highway 87 South in Navarre, Scooter’s is a must-try for tourists and locals alike.
Customers will find a wide range of tasty menu items, including fresh mullet, snapper, grouper, mahi and flounder.
Triggerfish, amberjack, tuna and smoked tuna dip are also popular menu items at Scooter’s. Colossal and popcorn shrimp are also on the menu. Try it with Scooters’ brand-new Bang Bang sauce.
Family-owned and operated, the business was started by Sam ‘Scooter’ Taylor, who opened the restaurant with his brother, Stewart, in June 2016. Scooter’s has continued to grow over the years and continues to serve the local community.
The two chalk boards located at the ordering window show the latest items on the menu, including the fish of the day.
Decorative picnic tables brighten the casual dining area and provide that right-at-home feeling. There is even seating on the back deck to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather while you eat your tasty meal.
Every customer will receive fast and friendly customer service from the moment they enter the restaurant until they leave.
“There’s nothing better than a happy customer,” Diedrich said.
Scooter’s Fish House is open Friday through Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. The restaurant is temporarily closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays due to staffing issues. Fill out an application online today at https://navarreseafood. com/job-opportunities- at-scooters/.
Their kid’s menu consists of options such as fried fish, fried shrimp or fried chicken. All kid’s meals come with a side of fries and a hush puppy.
There are plenty of delicious sides as well, including BBQ beans, fries and cheese grits. Wedge salad is also an option. Cucumber salad is back as a seasonal side on the menu.
Calamari is brought in from a shrimp boat and the mullet comes out of East Bay or the Sound, according to Taylor.
If you want dessert, Scooter’s has that, too. Key lime pie, made in-house, is a staple on the menu.
Scooters is starting a new cash incentive discount. If customers pay with cash, they pay their normal amount. If using a card, customers will pay a 4% surcharge. The restaurant also accepts all forms of payment including Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay and any mobile wallet or tap pay option.
Scooter’s tries to give back to the community as much as they can, helping raise money for local causes including schools, the chamber and the senior center.
