On the menu they advertised gluten free options. when they brought out her plate it was covered in gluten the first and second time. When asked to talk to the manager he explained he was in the restraunt business for over 20 years and never heard... More

Very casual atmosphere , family friendly, right on the water. Perhaps a bit over priced for the food and service can be slow, depends on which server you have. If you like a water view and are not in a hurry, give it a try.

Our large family (17 all together) walked the beach to get to this restaurant. The food was over priced for something not so special ($16 for popcorn shrimp!?) but our waiter made the experience great. He took care of our large group with ease and made sure we had everything we needed for our over priced seafood including extra hush... More

Service was extremely slow, food was just okay for the prices. On two entrees, we were missing trimmings and had to ask for something that should have been automatic. Server was no where to be found to get our trimmings, so we ate it without. By the time we were done, she showed up and wasn't apologetic. Won't be back

The food was great, and the location could not be beat. They had volleyball courts, and a playground on the beach also.

Had dinner with our 15 year old son. Food truly average. Went to the bar afterwards...son walked back...we were charged $12 for glass of glenlivet..that is ridiculous. We were the only ones in an ok bar, no view. Way overpriced.

Went to this restaurant for dinner while in FWB. Would describe as fun tourist type beach restaurant, don't expect gourmet meal, but food is good, with large portions. Thought prices were a little high, but we ordered some of the more expensive items on the menu. Had drink in bar and felt $12 for a scotch (glenlivet) was high.

We spent two afternoons here sitting at the bar on rainy days mainly because the bartenders were interactive, friendly and attentive. It didn't hurt that this place has the BEST calamari hands down. It is fried to perfection, not chewy like a lot of places. We prefer ours with Ranch and shrimp sauce rather than the marinara it comes with,... More

We came late afternoon. Asked for a gulf side view and it was great. The hot crab dip and pita chips were very tasty. My wife had the lunch crab cakes and enjoyed them. I had the crab feast and frankly maybe I should have had our server clarify where the blue crab came from...Maryland or Alaska. Bad assumption on... More

We visited one of our favorites here in Fort Walton Beach on February 15. We live just down the beach, so our usual routine is just to walk down the beach to the place. This time we brought a couple of relatives to join in the fun. Our waiter was genial and efficient, and the foot was hot and wonderful.... More
