As I was traveling from Sandestin to the airport in Panama City, I took a chance on eating at a new restaurant not previously on my list. It was my last opportunity to eat some seafood (namely a Poboy), before flying home that evening. Shades is a Bar & Grill type place or maybe more of a Sports Bar with... More

We usually eat here on Sunday after church at least once a month. Specials are always a good choice. A little noisy as it's a sports bar but depends on time of year.

So surprised by the quality and selection of food that we actually went back a second time. Service was great! Not your typical bar food menu either.

Great for carry out or dining in. TV, as it's a sports bar situation. If you wish for something easy and simple, it fills the "bill."

Great food and great service. My extended family was visiting Inlet Beach and we ate here on our first and last nights in town. Seating on the patio is a must and the beanbag games out there are great for keeping the kids occupied while waiting for food or for the adults to have a few drinks. Food was always... More

Pros -- convenient location, food selection and quality better than most sport arms, and.the staff was friendly and provided good service. Cons -- it's a sports bar -- noisy, loud. Grouper tacos were good. Avocado shrimp salad was ok. A little scrimpy on the avocado.
