Chef Chris Mack’s passion for food stems back from his youth on the Outer Banks of North Carolina where he began working in the restaurant industry at an early age. He attained his degree from Baltimore International Culinary College and went on to travel throughout Mexico and the Caribbean where he was able to pursue his love of surfing while cultivating his signature coastal comfort cuisine.
After living in Southern California for 10 years, Chef Chris moved to the Emerald Coast in 2003 and worked with top chefs in the area. He became the Executive Chef of Pandora’s of Grayton Beach in 2005 and served at the helm until they closed in October 2016. Since then he aspires to create unique, flavorful dishes only using fresh and local ingredients.
Chef Chris and his wife, Whitney, just welcomed a baby boy, Malone, in November 2017.
