We heard a lot about Helen Back from friends and people we met on vacation. Especially the pizza. We never got a chance to try the pizza but my wife's salad was awesome and my meatball sub was very good. The setting is a biker bar on the bay and everyone there was really friendly. Families are welcome but if... More

Prototypical southern vacation type bar. Really comes alive on weekends and game days. I wasn't on a boat, but looked like great boat access and nice big deck to enjoy ample selection of beer and pizza type food.

Has an extended stay in Destin area and this place was recommended. Visited twice in 14 days. First experience was much better as everything was accurate and served in a timely manner while enjoying the nice view of the bay. Next time, not so much. Family ordered food and requested that I pick it up. I went in and paid... More

My family got a to go order of pizza from this place. My brother placed the order and was laughing during the order due to how loud the place was on the other end of the phone. We were sure that the bar would mess this up due to my brother's lack of coherent English. The building is in a... More

Is bike night and two wheelers get free pizza. We rode our bikes and got that first. The pizza was too hot and runny. Doughy and undercooked. Maybe that was just the free pizza. We next had a chefs salad. This is awesome. We went all the way to the bottom. Always finding a nice morsel in every bite. Excellent.

We have ate here 3 times, twice we have had sandwiches and once pizza. Everything is good , the nachos are huge. The roast beef and cheese sandwich with cream cheese was suprisingly good and the pizza was ok. Great view if you go to the island location and I suggest to go early as late night tends to lend...

We had read about this eatery on the web and decided to try it. Great dive for beers with friends but food was not that wonderful,good but not wonderful. After hot day at beach OK for the brews but might choose other places to eat. Service was OK for a dive and outside is certainly the place to sit if... More

My fiance and I stopped in here out of the blue while vacationing in Ft. Walton. Good service is hard to find these days and we couldnt have asked for better, food and drinks were delicious as well. Ann Marie was our Bartender, she was awesome.
