We had lunch here while on vacation in Fort Walton Beach. Nice rustic setting and a beautiful view of the water from inside or outside. Good fast, friendly service.
Three words--smoked tuna dip. YUM. I've been hearing about this from my friend for years and it lived up to the hype. Not fishy and the smoke flavor is not too strong, it's just creamy and delicious. We had seafood salads which were very, very tasty and came with warm, fresh rolls. The shrimp and crab was perfectly cooked, fresh and sweet, and the salads had a lot of fresh veggies. Delicious dressing. If it's too breezy or hot to sit outside, an inside table by the window still has the view and fresh air.
It is a bit touristy I guess, but it's in a tourist area after all. I thought the service and the quality of the food were above average and the view is gorgeous.
