The locals were already calling, posting, texting, and emailing the news long before People magazine reported that Katie Holmes had made South Walton her choice destination for Memorial Day weekend.

Holmes entered Restaurant Paradis a little after 9 p.m. Saturday night with a female companion, said owner Gayle Pair.

"She was wearing a maxi dress and had her hair up; very casual," said Pair. "I wasn't there, but my daughter, Ansley, was."

Holmes walked in with her female companion and said they would just like to go in to the bar and have a drink, and breezed on in, said Ansley.

The bar was quiet right then, and they chose to sit in the big chairs away from the bar, and ordered a nice bottle of rose, which the two of them shared.

"She was beautiful, tall, and slender — with a ballerina body," said Pair.

Just after 10 p.m., Pair said some rowdy guys came in and recognized her. At that point, she asked for her check.
