Very Pleasant Setting

Very Good food but rather pricey. Two had highballs the other two just water; four main courses and two deserts. $260 with tip.

Consistently good food. Always friendly service. The cocktails are pretty awesome too. Be sure to splurge on dessert.

Freshly baked bread was yummy, pina colada delicious, hubby had New York Strip special, I had grilled shrimp salad. The shrimp tasted so fresh and were seasoned and cooked perfectly. The blue cheese in the salad tasted very fresh and strong. They also brought an amuse bouche of roasted chickpeas which were also delicious. Try to save room for desert... More

We ate there three time during our week in Sandestin. The staff was great as was the food. We will always come back here.

Staff was extremely friendly. Manager was attentive. And the chef (although we didn't meet him) knows exactly what he is doing down to the smallest garnish. Best meal in a while.

Good food and excellent service. You can go to any of their restaurants and you know what to expect. Great bar and usually outside seating is available.

Great food, great service, great outdoor dining and great location. This ranks as one of our best dining experiences ever. It started with conversation as we were seated. From there, our waitress explained in detail the items we were interested in. She recommended their signature sandwich (Cuban) and my wife ordered crab cakes. The food came and we could not... More

I didn't have very high expectations based on the reviews. I thought it was just another expensive fancy restaurant with mediocre food. Not only was the place well decorated with a home like feel, the food was awesome. I consider myself somewhat of a food snob. I typically won't write a review on a restaurant with terrible food or really... More

Had a wonderful visit. It was spring break weekend. We loved there was a shuttle that took us from the Hilton over to the restaurant. Service was wonderful. Guy was so nice and had great suggestions. Food was awesome. Looking forward to going back in the near future!
