The food was very good. I highly recommend sitting at one of the outside tables. We had a nice sea breeze and the ambiance of the ocean enhanced the setting for the meal. Service was very good, Jimmy was our waiter. We will return on our next visit.

First night in Fort Walton Beach and this was our first dining experience as well. OK is the best I can muster for this dining experience. My wife and I were expecting to have our first Seafood dinner to be great. Not, just so so. Gulf coast, the beach, the waves, were great, the food, again, OK.

The food, service, and atmosphere was very good. I would recommend the crab legs or shrimp and grits. I would have no problem trying anything on the menu.

My family and I visited Black Pearl and were pleasantly surprised not only with the quality of the meal, but also the exceptional service. Our server, I think his name is Shanti, was such a pleasant man. He was attentive, polite, and very friendly. I had the catch of the day, which was red snapper, along with scallops and shrimp...

Fresh seafood that is to die for. Tropical drinks hit the spot. Our waiter was attentive and recommended delicious entrees. Will return next time we are in Destin/Ft Walton.

The atmosphere of this beach front restaurant is great! Right on the beach with a great view of volleyball. Food is delicious! I loved the Watermelon Margarita. Travis took excellent care of us keeping our water glasses always full! I definitely recommend!

Family dinner was tarnished because of bad food. Very nice location on the beach but the food just didn't come up to par. Upstairs at The Crab Trap was different. Great food.. WE enjoyed eating at the Crab Trap..
