The restaurant location was nice, we sat outside and enjoyed the view of the sound. Our waitress was sweet and very helpful. However - the food was a major disappointment. For the price, it was over rated. The appetizer we ordered had to be sent back twice because it was still frozen on the inside and the BBQ sandwiches were... More

We are locals and have been wanting to try this restaurant. It started out romising (the place is very cute) but the waitress did not know what a "Landshark beer" was and they sell the product. It was right on the menu. Then she didn't know what Pino Grigio was, which is also on the menu. Upon drink arrival I... More

17 for a tough chewy steak, brisket tasted more like chopped roast not a hint of smoke flavor and the dirty rice was white rice with no flavor. Did I mention tuck?

This was our first visit & even though we live here, I'll be in no hurry to return. The BBQ pork was good, but no choice of sauce. Sides were skimpy & bland. Had Mac & cheese, dirty rice & onion rings, which are a $1.50 upgrade over fries. Mac & cheese had no flavor as did dirty rice which... More

We have visited this restaurant several times over the past few years when visiting Navarre Beach, FL. This year we visited and although the experience wasn't terrible, I would say the restaurant is on the decline from previous years. For starters, we were seated right next to the hostess stand. Took 15 minutes and I had to ask the hostess... More

The deck is great. Loved that part most of all. The beer was good and cold. We ordered smoked wings and they were good. Also had crab cakes which we enjoyed. What a great atmosphere especially if you have children. We were seated immediately and our server did a great job. It was a very pleasant experience and we will... More

I'm not much on Bar B Q but the family is and they love this place. I had the pulled pork sandwich and I have to say it was really good. The atmosphere is what makes this place worth while for me. You can sit outside on a very large deck over the water. There was a band playing when... More

We were greeted at the door and seated immediately. Our drink order was taken within a minute of being seated. Server was professional, and friendly :-) She set up Tic Tac Toe board for our daughters made from utensils and sugar packets! The kids loved it and thought it was really cool. The food came out quickly, and was well... More
