Helen Back for good pizza! It is definitely a sports bar atmosphere with inside and outside dining on the water. They have pizza, sandwiches, salads, and nachos, which were all good. There are TVs mounted everywhere for whatever sports you want to view.

My husband and I came here and had dinner and drinks one evening. Decided to come back the next day and bring the kids. Loved the atmosphere, patio, food, music, feeding the fish...etc. Can't wait to go back one day!

Went and got pizza, mozzarella sticks and salad to go. Was really yummy pizza and salad. Mozzarella sticks had to be reheated as they got cold on the way back, but they were good too! Loved the dipping marinara sauce. Ranch dressing was good! People were nice.I would definately go there again.

Terrible wait staff = you wait forever. Food is fair and the location on the water is great. They need to hire more waitresses and they'd be fine. Drinks are reasonably priced.

Took our 10yo and another couple with their two kids for dinner. The inside is definitely more a bar atmosphere. The outside deck and patio area is more family friendly. We heard others rave about the pizza. It was decent, but definitely not anything I'd brag about. The full order of nachos was incredible. Very pricey, though. Appetizers, two 9"... More

This cafe/bar has a very laid back atmosphere with great seating right on the sound where boats are docked. We ate the most delicious pizza and the bartender made the best drinks. We stayed longer than expected just because we enjoyed hanging out here. The staff made our time here enjoyable as they were very personable and friendly. I will... More

If you are in Fort Walton and you like pizza you have to try this place! The deck out on the bay was great in April.
