Amos Mosquito’s – Just by hearing the name, you’re probably wondering what in the world Amos Mosquito’s is. Well, on the Crystal Coast, it’s a pretty common name. Amos is a restaurant and bar that has served local, fresh, made from scratch American dishes with southern flair. Opened in spring of 2003, Amos Mosquito’s has always had a special touch that can’t be found at any other restaurant.
Sitting on the sound, you’ll find a dining area along with a bar stocked with great drinks. An impressive wine and beer list is accompanied with Sake, cocktails, and “bubbly”. For the menu, appetizers include calamari, baked oysters, fried pickles, crab cakes, steamed dumplings, and more. For entrees, you’ll find a filet, along with an amazing array of seafood dishes, all made in house with local ingredients. There’s also Amos’ famous meatloaf, burgers, and salads. For desserts, or as they call it the “sweet stuff”, there’s chocolate crème brulee, make-your-own s’mores, an ice cream sandwich made with two chocolate chip brownies, homemade pound cake, and key lime pie. They offer a dessert drink menu as well to pair with your treat.
Amos opens at 5pm and usually closes around 9, and most nights there is a line waiting at the door when they open. Thursday night at Amos is sushi and karaoke night. They offer take-out for nights you aren’t feeling like going out. Amos has an in-restaurant store that features t-shirts, hats, glasses, and accessories. They have been featured in countless magazines and news articles. But it’s no surprise that they are so popular, the food quality and customer service of owners and management keeps everyone coming back time after time. Owned by a local couple that everyone knows and loves, Amos has become a well-known spot for our community.
