BR has the best wings in Ft Walton Beach. They serve jumbo wings that are always delicious. I am typically a tradional-ist when it comes to my wings and I have only had the medium and hot buffalo sauce. Try the blue cheese dressing and you wont be disappointed. I don't know if they make their own, but I have... More

Stooped in on a Saturday night, place was packed but the 3 of us were seated immediately. Service was prompt, drinks were delivered quickly and our order was taken. Both orders arrived as requested, 10 Mild, 15 Medium, all x-tra crispy and a large side of curly fries. Wings were excellent, high-quality and large, without lots of veins you sometimes... More

The blue cheese and hot wings are fabulous! We always order ours well done and wet with a half basket of fries. This way they come out crunchy and soaking wet in their delicious hot sauce.

I have traveled all over the country, and these are easily the best wings I have ever had! They are meaty and flavorable and always cooked just right. The flavor choices are all top notch, plus the curly fries are outstanding. The celery sticks are thick and not the flimsy stringy sticks you get in many restaurants. Plus the bleu... More

Great atmosphere. No one with me got wings but we all were satisfied with our options of shrimp and the chicken parrot. Staff was very friendly. Will have to visit again and try the wings.

We have been coming to Buffalo's Reef whenever we are in the area since my daughter lived in Navarre 7 years ago. We are family vacationing in Fort Walton so we had to make a stop at our favorite wing place! These are chicken wings done right! I wish there was a Buffalo's Reef in the STL area! The wings...
