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.

There were 9 of us in our group. We all ordered a frozen drink. It took at least 30 minutes for all of us to get our drinks. They were coming out 1 drink at a time.

Very good service with cheaper drink prices than the local area. Pizza was tasty with good live music on some evenings.
