This restaurant reminded me of a local place back home. Very good but I expected more from a coastal seafood restaurant. Locally owned, service was good, and the décor was what one might expect from this area. The food was very good. The staff was friendly too. Yes, I would go back. I did think the price of the dinners... More

I'm not a huge fan of seafood however I tried some of my family's dishes and everything tasted excellent. I liked the old-time feel of the place and the service was very good. We ate there twice while on vacation and both times the whole family was pleased.

This is a local type place, very friendly staff, laid-back atmosphere and looks as if it has been in business for many years. We liked the look of it immediately and were not disappointed. I had grilled shrimp, side salad, baked potato, hushpuppies. Husband had fried oysters, slaw, baked potato, hushpuppies. We both enjoyed our meal. Will certainly go again.

We really enjoyed their Gumbo - spicy and good! We all had sandwiches - 2 fried grouper, 1 grilled Mahi Mahi and 1 fried soft shell crab. They were all fantastic! Will eat here again!

This probably ranks in the top 3 worst dining experiences in my life.. Having said that we ended up here on recommendation from an employee at the hotel we stayed at. It was stated to be a local favorite and not touristy.. Not touristy for a reason. We walked in, it smelled like a home from the 1950's.. Looking over... More

Very over priced. Best thing was the gumbo my 10 year old ordered. She thought it was so good, she wanted a refill. I ordered the special-red snapper. Fish was over cooked. Hubby had grilled shrimp. 1/2 dozen on a kabob. For $22. Not worth it. The kids had fried popcorn shrimp. It was WAY better than my grilled red... More

I visit FWB about every six months. I always stop in at High Tide at least once per trip. Last night I started with a dozen raw from Apalachacola (be sure to always ask for oysters from Apalachacola). The raw bar prepared them well - they came easily off the shell and they were ice cold. The waitress was attentive... More

We very much enjoyed going to happy hour every afternoon that we stayed. The drinks were great and the bartenders were very personal.
