First time was better, will not be back for a third time

First time here was absolutely amazing! Took the scenic route to work on pensacola beach blue angel weekend with my boyfriend and came across this little place. Walked in and fell in love! From the decor on the walls to the outstanding view, the potato salad was amazing along with our main entrées... read more

I drive by this place every day, and it smelled so good we decided we would stop in as it was relatively new. Unfortunately, the service was subpar, and the bbq was so dry! On top of that, the meal looked completely different than in the picture and was a smaller portion than expected. We ordered chips and salsa, and... More

I have to say, it took them time to get it all right, but it is now consistently good here so I wanted to add a review. The food and service has drastically improved and they have added a bar and oyster bar to the fabulous deck that overlooks the sound. It's the only restaurant in Navarre that is in... More

We loved this place. The fries were to die for. The BBQ was excellent. It has a nice view of the bay. We went there twice, once for the BBQ and the second time we had the lunch special.

Was hungry for wings and didn't want the fast food version... Called in an order for 4 lbs got half teriyaki and half hot wings. Drove over the bridge and picked them up in 10min. The wings were smoked and sauced perfectly. Meat came right off the bone and was excellent. Don't waste your time with Pizza Hut or dominoes.... More

Our family of 7, including 3 children, blindly chose East River Smokehouse for dinner tonight and we were ecstatic with the choice. All staff members were extremely friendly and welcoming. Our waitress, Nicole, was the best! The food is delicious and the portions are enormous. Each adult has enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

We stopped here on our way from Mobile to Destin. My husband & kids loved the pork balls appetizer. Barbecue was great. Wished there were more choices in BBQ sauces. I didn't care for the house sauce & would have liked something a little sweeter & less tomato-tasting. Same with the baked beans. We sat outside & it was a... More
