We stopped in here on recommendations from friends, and were very disappointed. The place looks like it has been there forever, and over the years just another room or deck added on to wherever. The food looked bad, so we just ahda can of beer and walked around for 30 minutes and that was it. There are several mini-venues for... More

We loved our late evening we spent here! At first it can be overwhelming...lots of people, lots of rooms and multiple options to choose from.. We settled into a room full of patrons listening to live music and waited a few minutes for someone to move on, when they did we jumped on to their table and we settled in... More

Called in on our way back from Pensacola and was not disappointed. Not sure if this was a bar with a church or a church with a bar but it works. I was having a beer while listening to The Old Rugged Cross being sung,it was a bit surreal,but totally enjoyable. It's right on the beach and has enough bars... More

Always two bands... several bars, on the beach where you can walk down. Not a huge menu but the food was good. Drink prices average to high.... friendly people, all walks of life. Spent the day and then came back that weekend night. Grabbed a taxi and a hotel, lot's of fun.

This is an entirely original place. It sits right on the border between Florida and Alabama (hence the name). It is a hotch potch of bars, eating areas, music, dancing and just good fun. Even an old wrinkly like me could enjoy it. The food was OK - nothing special but very reasonable. Drinks were also reasonably priced. The night... More

We like to go here and get a drink or two and listen to some music when we are in town. It just has a vibe all of it's own as a little dive bar directly on the beach with some Southern flare. I personally have not eaten the food here (although I've heard it's good).

After seeing Flora-Bama on Food Network, we made a specific detour while on vacation, just to try the oysters. We arrived @ about 7:00 on Tuesday, Oct 14th, and after paying $2.00 admission fee pp, we were told they were SOLD OUT of Nachos AND Oysters. Had this been in the summer, I could see it, but in this case,... More

A true icon of this area beach bar, restaurant with a special 'charm of it's own'. Kenny Chesney picked this spot this year as his only concert of the year if that tells you anything. Families should go early before the party gets cranking!

If you are wanting to party this is the place! Girls take an extra bra so you can leave it there. The ambiance is nothing but party!

What a great place. Went twice over a 9 day period, music was great each time. Can't say how many venues were there but amazingly couldn't hear one from the other, loved the main stage and the bands we saw there. Staff was fine, got to give them credit. If you are in the area, you need to go, if... More
