Good setting... good food.

The food was really good, a little bit and drive. Didn't really have anything for kids which considering we went on Mother's Day that was kind of the point. The location was a little cramped not as big as they needed to be, but it was still a nice little area. My favorite part was the great service.

This was the best steak I have ever had in my life. I wish I could eat this prime rib everyday! The waiter was wonderful and the night was just great. Thanks Pandora's!

We were told that this place was delicious by some regulars in the area so we were quite excited, however; as we walked into the establishment with a baby we were greeted with rolling eyes insead of smiles. 4 adults and 1 baby shouldnt be hard to accomidate. They started to sit us at one table when a waiter walked... More

After being seated the waiters assistant immediately came and filled our glasses with water. Waiter arrived and offered us drinks. When we advised no drinks, he said I'll give you a few minutes to look over the menu. He came back shortly and took our order. A warm loaf of bread was immediately served with butter. This was followed by... More

As I lived in the area, I have dined there frequently with family, friends and visitors. The atmosphere is a relaxed formal. The waiters are all men who are dressed in white shirt and ties with long black aprons ala Paris. The prime reason for my visits is the prime rib. It is done to your liking as are the... More

They know how to make a steak, and what goes well with a steak, including the best wines. Not a run-of-the-mill steak house, but someplace you go when you want your steak done right and are willing to pay for it.

Come across the Brooks Bridge from Ft Walton and open the window and you can smell the wood smoke from Pandora's. Wonderful steakhouse. Very likely the best NY Strip I've ever had, crusted with great oak smoked flavor. D. had the prime rib special, tender but with very little fat. Great Manhattan with rye. Excellent, professional service. Reasonable price for... More

I reserve this restaurant for the times I want to feel special, though you can make it a daily visit. The food is always superb and the service makes you feel special too.

We ate there as a group of 12 with reservation (albeit a last minute call) for a birthday party. We were seated at two booths and a table, so that hampered the party, but we did reserve late; it was a Wednesday off-season. Would recommend reservations. Waiter seemed confused at first but worked out OK. The special was prime rib.... More

Very good food. Nice restaraunt, antique design. Food was delicious. It was a little pricey. We went with a large group with kids. The restaraunt was very accomodating and placed us in a large party room. We were all able to sit at the same table- 14 plus people.
