The food, people and service is outstanding. This will be a must stop place whenever in town. The fried shrimp was what I tried. Only negative aspect is it's not on the water but this was a known fact when looking it up. Best seafood I. The area

We visited on a Tuesday evening and it was packed. But we only had to wait about 15 minutes for food. The food was great. It was fresh and cooked perfectly. The prices were very reasonable, way cheaper than some of the other ocean front restaurants.

First time to visit. The grilled shrimp was amazing! Loved the okra, baked beans and the hush puppies too! I highly recommend this place!

I read a lot of reviews about the food being fantastic. It certainly isn't bad but it was just average. The young ladies taking orders were very friendly and were very patient and knowledgable about the fish. I think everyone in front of me, and including me, had questions for them. I had the fried snapper, cucumber salad and fries.... More

Absolutely favorite place to get seafood in Fort Walton. They have a drive thru which is great for people who live in the area and want to take it back home.

We wanted to try a new place and this was not far off and got really good reviews. The food is really good and the fish is very fresh. Everyone enjoyed it. My wife really likes good gumbo and she said this was some of the best she has had. The only downside is that the place is very small... More

Great casual place offering a variety of fried and grilled seafood options. Order inside at the window (also has a drive thru) and dine in the small shanty at large picnic tables. Prices were not expensive and reasonable for the portions. The grilled Mahi tacos were amazing as well as the seasoned fries. Fried snapper was really tasty. Service was... More
