Found this the first night we arrived and so happy to find a nice view for dinner. Had to wait a long time for service.. Pizza and nachos were average. Mixed crowd of drunk bikers and biker want to be's to a few families. Would not go back but cute name!

Although the restaurant provides beautiful views of the bay, our service was not good to say the least. We sat for 15 minutes before our drink orders were taken and waited over 1 hour for our meal which never came. Our waitress never came back for refills or to update us on our food. Unfortunately, with kids accompanying us, we... More

Our party arrived and no one greeted or seated us. No one cleared or cleaned our table for 20 minutes. No one took our order for 30 minutes. After an hour of waiting for our pizza, our waiter told us it would be a while as the kitchen was so backed up. Finally, two hours after arriving, we received an... More

We pulled up to this "biker pizza bar" on the night the US fell to Belgium in the World Cup. Half the place emptied at the end of the game. Our server was pretty decent. It was about five in the afternoon, and the outside was blazing hot. They have a few fans scattered around, but that wasn't enough. The... More

This is the absolute best place for pizza in Fort Walton Beach. The crust is even flavorful. The Italian sausage is great, as well as other ingredients. It is a bar, but they have great service and many people come for a meal.

I walked from our condo to get pizza and was kinda glad I didn't bring lil ones. I think I was there on biker night, lol. The counter guy messed up my order which caused extra wait time (but with music so loud, I could see how they couldn't communicate in pizza making area). That said, pizzas were awesome. Well... More

This place was very good with an atmosphere, good drinks and beach food. If live band was too loud there was a great patio. Visited it twice during our stay

If you are hungry and it is late this place will do. They have beer and an outdoor patio. Pretty loud inside and smoking on patio can be a bit much.
