Pleasant atmosphere great service

Arrived early evening was seated immediately. Noticed most others were having pizza though we chose one of the specials and another entre of the menu. Our food was well prepared though my only complaint was a little more water from the pasta than I would have liked.

This was recommended by a waitress at another restaurant. Don't go here. Already prepared, packaged food with little flavor. Very disappointed. Arrived before 6:00 pm (happy hour) and was not asked for another drink, when I asked was told happy hour already ended 10 minutes ago. How cheap! The manager or owner came to several tables, not ours, or I... More

This is a wonderful restaurant. They are known for their pizza, which we ordered in addition to a couple spinach salads. The pizza was good and the salads were also excellent. Ambiance is nice also, tables not crowded together and it is relatively quiet. Quality service also. Zero issues or complaints. Highly recommend.

I am a local and have actually only been here a couple of times mostly for lunch. I decided to write a review after I had their dinner. The place fills in with a chill young crowd and business older crowd...great vibes! The food was great, same with the service. It was a bit pricey. BUT most of all the... More

Ali's is always good. Predictably good. They have friendly and efficient wait staff and the food is very good. On top of that, the atmosphere is excellent. That's all I look for in a restaurant.

The food was fabulous. Opened my silver ware and there was hair in it. Servers had their hair down. I know it is health dept required to wear it up. Hate setting this in such a nice restaurant.

We went there yesterday with a group of 7 people and the food was just ok. I think there are many better restaurant options out there; no one really loved their meal. The chicken sandwich I had was really flavorless, I kept trying any sauce I could put on it to make it taste good. The only item we really... More

Add this restaurant to your "must visit" if you travel to Fort Walton Beach. The food is exceptional! If you like brick oven pizza this is the best in the area. Everything on the menu is fresh (salads are superb) and their homemade bread (served with garlic oil) is delicious. Great for a date night or for a family outing.... More
