There’s a lot to love about the friendly community of Seaside, which is home to some of the Emerald Coast’s most underrated parks and beaches. If, as you’re exploring this charming neighborhood, you find yourself in need of a quick bite, you can make a pit stop at Pickle’s Burger and Shake. This open-air eatery has a casual feel in perfect keeping with laid-back beach days.

There’s no secret as to the type of cuisine Pickle’s Burger and Shake offers. The establishment’s menu may be straightforward, but it covers a wider variety of items than its name implies. Burgers, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches are standard fare at lunch. If you’re an early riser, however, you’re welcome to stop in for an omelet.

While the selection here appeals to visitors of all ages, those with smaller appetites may want to order off the children’s menu, which includes such essentials as grilled cheese sandwiches, hamburgers, and hot dogs. 

Despite the kid-friendly vibes, Pickle’s Burger and Shake is also an ideal location for adults who want to let loose. The drink menu includes a variety of tasty cocktails, but no visit is complete without a pickle shot.

If you prefer a more relaxing experience, you’re welcome to kick back with a bottle of beer. Non-alcoholic options include spring water, sweet tea, and Coke with real cane sugar.

If you’re in a rush, you’ll be disappointed to discover longer wait times than the restaurant’s casual appearance implies. The wait can feel especially long on a hot day when you could realistically spend over twenty minutes in line as the sun beats down. Additional waiting is to be expected after you place your order. If you’re not in a hurry, however, the convenient location may make you more willing to put up with the possibility of a wait.
