This is one of our top 3 favorite places to eat in Destin...love sitting outside in the evening and admiring the view while dining. Never been disappointed with the food, either!

I had the Blackened Grouper Sandwich it was great. We sat on the Balcony overlooking the beach-the view was gorgeous. The price was very fair-the wait staff was great.

Reggae Rolls and gumbo are delicious. I have had several of the fish dinners as well and I have never been disappointed. If you see a tall older guy behind the bar you must order his drink. Only Big Ed can make the best Big Ed!

This was a perfect place for our family. They take call ahead seating, are right on the beach, and have great food and service.

Beautiful view in the daytime, and fun atmosphere at night. We loved the Banana daquiri and my husband enjoyed the seafood. (He got lobsters tail and a big plate of shrimp.) He said it was excellent.
