We were a party of 5 with a reservation at 7:30pm New Years Eve. First our server was great. No problems there at all. He was very busy. We all decided to order off the special New Years Eve menu. 3 of us got the Filet Mignon. I ordered it medium but it came out almost rare. The other two... More

This is one quaint little restaurant tucked away under the Ft. Walton Bridge and the intercostal water way. The old house converted to a restaurant has outdoor seating, romantic seating, a nice bar and even a private area for parties. We had a group of 6 with reservations and the table was ready for us when we arrived. Our service... More

The waiter brings some bread and oil appetizer when we first arrived. We explain to the waiter that I am highly allergic to soy. So since soybean oil had been used he takes mixture away and comes back after washing his hands. I was very impressed thinking that he understood a food allergy problem. But find out later he didn't... More

We are so sorry to hear about the misunderstanding with the soy! We do try hard to accommodate allergies but in this case we obviously didn't do well at all. Thank you for your kind rating in spite of the problem and hopefully we will see you both again. More

First visit since the remodel/new owners. Couldn't be more pleased. The food was superb, the service was excellent (Lindsey was a fabulous server!), the drinks fit the bill, and the entertainment was fantastic. All in all one of the best nights out I've had in a very, very long time. The menu was packed with dishes I wanted to try,... More
