Overpriced and food quality is below poor. Service was terrible and the place did not smell good... Drinks were watery and beer not cold.

FINALLY!! This place has finally closed their doors. A restaurant that never made it to the 21st century. Decor has never been updated and the food is in the same condition.

This may have been good at one time but they closed for good reason. I have tried this place over a dozen times in 20 years and they are consistant. It has never been good.

Very sad to see that this 100 year old family restaurant closed. Heard a local rumor that part of the family may re-open later. Sure hope so

My husband and I ate here on a recent trip. Our waiter was amazing, very attentive. The place was not busy at all. Maybe two other tables besides ours. We each had steak and shrimp. The steak was average at best, I hardly ate any of mine. The shrimp was excellent and the salad dressing (homemade) was excellent as well.... More

The food is little, and expensive. We had 4 people, did not go out full after spending $110. I am from China, in our sea food restaurant, we have numerous kinds of fishes, clams, shrimps, crabs, and numerous ways to cook it. However, in this restaurant, I only found 4 or 5 types of fishes, disappointing me very much.

I've been coming to fort Walton for years now and have always passed this place up. Big mistake. If you want traditional seafood (which for some reason is getting harder and harder to find) come to Staffs. I got the fried seafood platter. It was outstanding with huge butterflied shrimp. The batter was perfect. They bring your sauces out in... More

It always amuses me when friends talk about long waits, slow service at the new, hip, or fancy area restaurants. There Staff's sets - in Fort Walton knocking out the same delicious food, decade after decade. When we go on our Destin vacation, we always head here for a great meal & good service. Homemade bleu cheese dressing....ahhhh, crab claws!!... More

We had mixed results for an evening meal here. My dining companion was extremely satisfied with his fish entree, but my scallop dish was under-cooked. I will try it again to see if the quality is more consistent. The decor is old seafood shack style,and could use a little updating.
