We came here for brunch. This restaurant is beautiful. So the atmosphere is pretty great. I've been here for lunch and dinner. Both were good. Although, they took one of my favorites (bacon wrapped scallops) off the menu. The brunch was just okay and because it was just okay, it was also over priced. They need to find a way... More

The food in the Sunday Brunch varies in quality. Roast beef served lukewarm on a cold plate with chilled mushrooms is such an obvious mistake that I'm amazed the management allows it to happen. The sushi is dry and tasteless. The sashimi is great but served only in single portions at a time, so if you are not first in... More

The selection of food is good, and the interior of the restaurant is very nice. I especially enjoyed their Valentines' Day dinner in their big ballroom.

I had brunch here with a party of four. Food was delicious and we were not rushed at all. Sat on the back deck with a very pretty view of the bayou and enjoyed our visit. Would definitely go back!

We have had Sunday brunch here several times and love it each time. It takes us an hour to get here, but each time we always say it was worth the trip. When you compare the travel time, price and food quality, these people do it right. Everything was delicious and the service is so accommodating it is hard to... More

My wonderful husband and kids took my mother and I to Compass Rose for Mother's Day Brunch this year. My husband had to make reservations several weeks in advance because last year a week in advance they were book solid. We sat outside on the lovely deck with a slightly occluded view of the water. We were so glad we... More

The Compass Rose Restaurant in Valparaiso, Florida, which is between Eglin AFB and Niceville, has an "extension" called "Doc's Oyster Bar." We had dinner there in hope of some good oysters but we were disappointed. For one thing, they don't have any fried oysters - only raw or grilled on the half shell. The oysters were very small and the... More

Compass Rose has always been number one in atmosphere, food and drinks but now with the addition of a new menu and an oyster bar directly on the water you can't beat this duo!

Last night I had dinner at Compass Rose with fourteen girlfriends. We had a private room and our own waitress. The food was awesome and the service outstanding. When fourteen women are completely satisfied it is a very successful night. This is one of my favorite restaurants and I recommend it often to those looking for a great meal with... More

Tried the Sunday brunch last week after we heard great things. No parking. Nearly every item was out or was minimal. Our group ended up ordering eggs benedict off the menu because there was such little selection at the stations. Took 25 mins for ONE eggs benedict and the egg was completely cooked. I ended up with a fair quality... More
