We were wanting pizza and was pleased to find this place in Okaloosa Island, where our condo was located, so we did not have to get out into traffic for the night.

They don't deliver but were only minutes from our hotel so that was no big deal. We got a pepperoni and a pie with several toppings. They were very good. It's a good and economical way to feed the family for a night in the room.

If staying in Ft Walton, make Helen Back a destination! We were able to walk over from our condo, sit on the deck, enjoy drinks and awesome pizza by the bay, and visit with friendly locals. We went on a busy Saturday night (a PPV fight drew big crowds), but were able to find a table quickly, got drinks and... More

Friendly, with outdoor and indoor dining on the Intracoastal. Pizza, sandwiches, salads, full bar, pool tables, football, docks available for arrival by boat. A favorite of locals, they are big community supporters.

People love this place but it is just a sports bar. The pizza is average and I guess people simply love the atmosphere.

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!
