I can't express my LOVE for this place. The beer selection is by far the best in Ft. Walton. The bartenders are knowledgably and so friendly! They also have a bunch of fun games, giant connect four, giant jenga, cornhole, foosball AND SkeeBall! I felt like a kid all over again. If you get hungry… they got it covered. You... More

Been going to the "Duck" for years but finally had to fire it as bar when the smoke just became too thick. Smoke eaters never worked and they did not keep the doors open. It's smoke free now and a pleasure again. Inside cornhole, Jenga, and big TVs in a very friendly atmosphere. Just beer and wine, but a great... More

I love coming in here and trying their broad beer selection! I also love that they have games for all of us "big" kids when we are there. Monster Jenga is my all time favorite!

Stopped in here on a recommendation from a different bartender. First thing you notice is how smokey and stinky it is. Gross. Second thing is their amazing tap list. Third thing is the ridiculous crowd that hangs there. So we each got one awesome beer, drank it and left. If it was either non smoking or the other patrons were... More

The one thing that really pis**s me off is bartender's with no personality or a chip on their shoulder. YOU WORK FOR TIPS, SMILE, BE NICE! The beer selection is very good. With many different drafts and bottle selection. LOTS of military guys, that think they are cool, BIG downfall.

Happened upon this place purely by accident when visiting the Emerald Coast. This bar was a fantastic place to hang out! We went with about 6 people. There was plenty of seating, the selection of beers were great, and the HUGE Jenga game was hilarious. The music selection wa awesome too (pretty sure it was a jukebox). I'd go back... More

The Salty Duck has, bar none, the best beer selection on the Emerald Coast. Don't go to the duck if you're looking for an every day domestic. This place has 39 hard-to-find, craft beers on tap that change weekly! The head bartender, Willey, is extremely knowledgeable and allowed me to sample many beers before buying to ensure I would enjoy... More
