Great drinks and food

Ate there 3 times in 4 days. It was always a good experience. Food is fresh and the grouper was excellant. Service level was high. Very attentive wait staff. All orders were correct and served piping hot. The entertainer was really good with a large variety of music in the afternoons. The outside... read more

Nice fireworks display. Nice view. Clean restrooms. Live music...That's the problem. Those are the only positives. It took us an hour and a half to get our food. It was bland and cold. Oh, one more positive...the mashed potatoes were excellent. The waitress was super and actually told us that she had to fry some food to help out the... More

We did not eat here. We went for drinks and the dueling pianos. It was fun. They had a singer guitar player perform before the pianos started and he was entertaining. The piano music and singing was good. It isn't as high energy as a Howl at the moon but it was a fun way to spend the evening. No... More

We only visited for drinks and to listen to music. Loved the dueling pianos and the fun atmosphere. It is loud, but that is what we expected and how it should be in the evenings. Drinks were good, service was good.

We only had drinks so I can't review their food. We enjoyed the dueling pianos. At first just one person was playing, but still great. Then later in the evening two players were the entertainment. A far walk from the parking lot to the business because it is at the wharf.

Went 4th of July before the fireworks. Was crowded as to be expected, however service was good as well as the food and drinks. No dueling pianos that night, however the entertainment was ok but very loud. No talking to anyone in our party while there. Would go back another night and give it another try

We called ahead of time and they told us the a/c was broken but they were still open. They had fans which made it bearable. The food was good but it seemed that our waitress was distracted by some guy at the bar. If you're in Destin, need to stop at Baytowne in Sandestin.

we have been twice already on this trip. We enjoy the dueling pianos and the delicious frozen drinks at the end of a hot day on the beach. Servers are very friendly. Fireworks right outside on Tue. And TH nights. Didn't eat anything, so can't help you there.

We came for the atmosphere not the food. Nobody left hungry but it was a bit pricy for what you got. It got so busy it was hard to keep your glass full. All in all it was a good time because of the entertainment.
