Good!

We were in need of some beef after days of eating seafood. This place does a good prime rib. Staff is very professional and attentive - and personable. The interior décor is quintessential vintage New York Steakhouse: red leather banquette booths and dark hardwood paneling throughout. We'd go... read more

I had the crab stuffed shrimp. The stuffing was very dry and the shrimp lacked a bit of flavor. For the price of dinner I did expect better quality of food. The salad was nothing special, it was fresh but again nothing special.

Atmosphere, service and food to die for. The food and service is one of the best in the area. A little pricey but as they say, " you get what you pay for", This is true here for sure.

We have spent the last three winters in Destin and have dined at many restaurants. We asked a friend for recommendations as to where to go for the best steak. We went to Pandoras last night and we will certainly go there again. The restaurant has great parking. The receptionist was warm, cheerful and friendly. We did not have a... More

We arrived at 7:00pm on a Friday night with no wait. Upon entering, you will see the characteristic wooden interior of cove-like booths and tables in the middle. James, our server, was wonderful, witty, and very attentive considering we had a toddler with us. The steaks were HUGE. If you are even questioning the price, the size of the steak... More

Nestled in a cul-de-sac not far from the Miracle Strip Parkway--the main road along the Gulf Coast--is a wonderful restaurant with the ambiance and excellent level of service one would find in a small dining room of a five star hotel. The food is magnificent! The restaurant has a full menu, with appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, and desserts--plus a well-stocked... More

The wait staff is professional and friendly. The food is delicious and the selection of wine very good. Our evening started out in the bar with lovely cocktails and a good live band. Overall, as always, a great evening.

Both the food and service were just ok, we went twice once with teenage kids once without. Neither hostess was very friendly - the first seemed to busy with other things to care- but at least she spoke to us, the second took our menus and set them on a table then walked away. Neither server was very engaging. While... More

Went to Pandora's tonight for the Prime Rib Special, as I have been for 25+ years. They outdid themselves this time. The prime rib was huge, cooked to perfection ("Pittsburgh" style), and literally fork tender. Add French Onion Soup, a nice green salad, baked potato, bread and two "Arnold Palmer's", all of which were very good, and the bill came... More

This is a great steakhouse--dark wood paneling, outstanding waiters, and the prime rib is done to perfection. The Sunday & Wednesday special is the best value on the island!
