Enjoyed the ambiance of the Haughty Heron very much last night. Great place to stop for an evening drink. Bartenders are exceptionally nice. We sat in in two wingbacked chairs and could carry on conversation without any problems. It also is a package store and has a nice selection of wine, beer and spirits.

My wife and I simply loved this place. The staff is exceptional, not only are they professional and friendly, but they are willing to walk the floor with you and make suggestions based on what you like. This made holiday gift giving for our wine enthusiast friends easy on us since we are not wine drinkers. The wine and spirits... More

I can't say enough positive stuff about this place. First, the bartenders are the absolute best. When the place is busy...and it gets really busy, they are incredibly efficient and super friendly. It's a local bar with local people and everyone in there acts like they know you. Super friendly people! The best thing is the live music. They always... More

My husband and I visited on our 1st night in Port St Joe and we're pleasantly surprised that they were open on Thanksgiving night. The bartender was very sweet and the musician Buddy Hamm was awesome! We very much enjoyed our time at the Haughty Heron and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good time in Port St...

Definitely MANY more locals than tourists and you know that for sure when the door opens and every head in the place looks your way! Good cold beer and a few interesting conversation or two....I guess this one is a must visit if you want true local color.

You can buy single drinks at bar and it also sells beer like a liquor store [normal prices]. Lucky enough to be there for 'blast on the bay' and listened to great music. Only thing that needs improvement is only 1 bathroom that created long lines.

This was on of the venues for the annual St. Joe "Blast on the Bay" country songwriters' festival and we made a great decision by picking to attend at the Haughty Heron. The music was presented outside and is something we wouldn't miss if we're ever in the area again, when it's held in October. While waiting for the show... More

We stopped by for drinks and to listen to the live band playing. The stage is set up outdoors with palm trees and other plants surrounding the area, and there was plenty of room to dance. Great fun and service!

Great way to spend the morning, listening to a young cover band (super cute), eatting a great breakfast and the best mimosa.
