Lunch visit

We stopped in while on vacation. The hotel was a block away, and went for a late lunch. The parking lot still was almost full, but we walked right in, and got a seat. It is an older building, but had all kinds of vintage pics of the area, to add to the atmosphere. I ordered a bowl of gumbo... read more

We are here our last night in town. We got there early because a storm ran us off the beach so I won't review the atmosphere. But the food was amazing! And our waitress was great. Husband had crab legs which were very fresh and sweet. Not spongy at all like some can be. I had steamed oysters which I... More

We went in during an off time (2:00) and had the restaurant to ourselves. The service was friendly and the food was delicious - fresh and hot! We were on the patio on the water. Even though it was a hot day there was a cool breeze. We will definitely be back.

Sit at the bar to get more than the 12 oysters. Make the effort to make friends with the bartender as we had 18 on our third dozen oysters and man they were GOOD!!!

This is a great place to get a grouper sandwich. My cousin, however, prefers their big hamburgers. Each year we like to come back to this restaurant because the food and service are good. The atmosphere is just a bit dark.

We tried several different seafood places while on vacation and we all agreed that High Tide had the best tasting seafood around. The service was great with no wait time. We had a party of 9 and was given a 20 minute wait time, but was seated immediately. Will eat there again next year for sure!

This is my favorite hometown restaurant. We eat here every summer on our trip home to see my mom. It has been around forever, and the food is outstanding every time.

This restaurant, located on Okaloosa Island at the foot of the bridge. It looks and feels like a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives showpiece. This is the place to go for raw oysters. They have been in business at the same location for over 40 years. They also serve excellent seafood. I really like their fried shrimp. Do not be put... More

High Tide always has the best Fried Shrimp on the Island. The Raw Oysters are always the freshest on the panhandle. You cannot go wrong with a visit to High Tide.
