We visit here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. Oysters, fried shrimp, gumbo and grouper are superb. Service is great. Only complaint is drinking out of plastic mugs.

Seafood gumbo was very good as was the triggerfish. Shrimp was very very good with light breading and they were quite large-more so than expected. Large portions. Only somewhat negative was the crab bites. Seemed to be a bit undercooked or doughy. Finally, our server Destiny, was the best-going above necessary with being attentive etc. You would be silly not... More

This place has been around a long time and we have never had a bad meal. The gumbo is always exceptional and we love the crab claws and all kinds of fish. It is convenient to where we normally stay and the service is always great. We will continue to eat there every time we visit the area.

It was the first time the four of us have gone to the High Tide Lounge. It was recommended to us by people we met while here in Ft. Walton Beach for a winter break. We decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, to the time we left, the service was... More

I'm a local and the High Tide has been here so long I don't remember when it started~!! It's just north of the east end of the Fort Walton Bridge and it looks like a fairly common "mom & pop" place but the food is very good. They've been in business for a very long time and know their locals.... More

Chelsea P. Is the one of the best servers this restaurant has ever had. I've eaten at several seafood establishments in the local area and nothing compares to the service she delivered today. My only hope is that the restaurant recognizes the valuable asset they have in her and that the restaurant continues to skills shine.
