one of the places hotel staff & cab driver suggested i try... the server was amazing, the fresh grated horse radish was something I'd never tried on my oysters... such a convert... would totally have eaten there again if I'd stayed longer

Best oysters around and best shucker. Been at it for 20 years and quite the pro! Must "go to " for oysters and a large variety of fresh seafood!

A recent lunch with relatives from out of town was a disaster: over an hour to get our food, though the place was not at all full; and poor quality and preparation when it arrived. Too bad if this is the new norm as High Tide has been a reliable place for decades. We're told the place has changed hands... More

When you see a lot of locals eating here you know you have chosen a good restaurant. The five of us were seated within 5 minutes of arrival on a busy Friday evening and a server was prompt to our table for orders. The dinner meals were sized appropriately for the value (price) and the quality excellent. We had previously... More

This restaurant has been in Fort Walton for years. It does not look like much on the outside but inside the food, service, and atmosphere are excellent. It is a local restaurant with wonderful gulf coast seafood. Oysters on the half shell, shrimp, fish sandwiches and gumbo. Also, has hamburgers and chicken sandwiches for land lovers. A must stop if... More

This place is just ok. It was $100 after tip for 2 adults and a teenager. I recommend the Old Bay Steamer instead. Avoid the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp. It was so greasy. My husband had the raw oysters and said they were good.

Visiting FWB for the first time. Asked the front desk for a local recommendation. This was right around the corner, tucked in beside a gas station, nearly under the bridge. Nothing spectacular to look at but the lot was full! Always a good sign. Top notch oysters, delicious grilled shrimp, and the gumbo was the best that I've had. Very... More

We had avoided this place for years because of its outward appearance. We missed out! The inside is clean, spacious and nice. The seafood is delicious and meals are plentiful. A little pricey.. But good food and good service come with a price. One of our favorite places to go!

This is really a great place. The prices, quantity and quality are all very good here. Sat at the oyster bar on Saturday night, they shuck more oysters than the Old Union Oyster House in Boston. We also went to the Original Crab Shack, which is rated higher than this place but to my appraisal there, only the cole slaw... More

Still the best place anywhere for oysters on the half shell. Quality, quantity and value. Can't be beat. They always serve them chilled and they taste like they just came out of the water. Been all over the world never found them better.
