My new wife and I came here for lunch during the week. It was clean, had tasty food, price points for everyone, and a great view. I'd definitely come back.

We ate dinner here on a Tuesday night, and the entire experience was perfect. Our server, Sean, was so helpful and recommended several entrees for us to try. We wanted the onion string appetizer, and he recommended that we get the side order portion since we only had two people in our party. He was correct - the side order... More

This restaurant is all about the LOCATION - on the beautiful Quietwater beach in scenic Pensacola, this is a modern restaurant with tremendous views. A few observations: I thought the service was not commensurate with expectations - wait staff need better training, as this would improve the customer experience (and probably increase bar sales) The patio can be EXTREMELY windy,...

Thank you Robert for joining us for dinner! I'm glad that you enjoyed our beautiful building, we are sorry that you joined us on a windy day unfortunately we don't have much control over the weather, we do have flaps on our deck that we drop down when the weather is less than to be desired. We do hope that... More

The menu on tripadvisor was old. The prices have gone up considerably. And although the food we got was good, the service was very poor. Our server didn't offer daily specials. We had to ask. First he told us there were none. Then I asked about the fish. He didn't know the prices. Never got back to us with the... More

We wasted an entire evening here. The wait was an hour but since we have been to Pensacola several times and hadn't ever eaten dinner here we decided it was worth it. We were seated right next to the kitchen, which is probably the worst table to be at. It was noisy and hot. Our waiter came to our table... More

This restaurant is equally recommended and loathed. We went based on the positives...what a mistake. First, our waitress seemed to get lost most of the evening. Drinks never came unless we reminded her. Refills...we had to ask. They were out of six items we ordered from the menu (it had been a busy weekend). Onion ring appetizer...greasy. House salad...good. Salmon...good.... More

We went at lunch on a Saturday. Not busy and no problem getting a table. We sat outside overlooking the bay, inside was decorated nice but a little chilly since we were still wet from being on the beach. Our server Jordan was very nice, helpful, and prompt. They have a good selection on the menu, plus a lot that... More
