Best crab claws in the entire area

I think in general the food at High Tide is decent, though I don't like oysters so I can't comment on those, which they are well known for. I'm a fan of crab claws and I spend a lot of time in the Ft Walton area, so I like to try them out everywhere I got that hast them. I... read more

Staff was helpful and very very kind. We really valued the great atmosphere and being with locals that was the main aim of our trip. Dinners come with coleslaw, hushpuppies and choice of fries, rice, steamed vegetables or baked potato. Plates, as you can see in the pictures, are huge. We loved the fried cheesecake.

Family locals and builders in the area. This was always a good place to go....once upon a time. Now, nothing but a stinky crabshack atmosphere, extremely high prices, food not good. If you're looking to spend lots of money for a nice night out, don't bother. We were well overcharged for what we consumed. This restraunt has turned into nothing... More

This place is amazing. We have been here multiple times. The seafood is wonderful and the crab claws are the best around. Steamed crab was great and service was spot on.

The food was not good, and the service was even worse. Our waitress ignored us throughout dinner...empty drink glasses most of the time. She did refill them toward the end. She kept walking by very quickly, but never stopping to ask if we needed anything. "Yall doing ok?" and kept right on going, having to see that we needed refills.... More

Went there as advised by the Hampton Inn. Worst meal in years over priced on plastic plates. I ordered scallops they had no taste and were dry. I did not order from the bar.

For the price of their food,they should use plates,not plastic. I ordered scallops. Had to send them back. No taste. Ordered grilled shrimp...better but not the best. Served baked potato with packs of sour cream...really! Waitress said scallops were sweet and a big seller,but when I sent them back,she said ...we get the complaint that they have no taste.The catch... More

Been eating at High Tide on all of our trips to Fort Walton, every time has been a knock out of the park, this time they dropped the ball. To be fair I've had more good experiences here than I've had poor. The waitress was extremely sweet and did alright keeping the glasses full but the service just seemed to... More

Fun coastal interior. The menu was varied and the food and service was good. The food was not really outstanding but I would eat there again. The service was friendly and cordial.
