Most of the restaurants on Okaloosa Island are typical casual fried seafood places. Pandora's is more upscale. Excellent steaks and seafood. The prime rib is fantastic as well as the service.

This is primarily a steak house. At least that is what we have when we go there. They have other menu items but why? It is consistently great. Great service, great steaks, beautiful interior, hot bread, reasonable prices. This is the kind of place you bring your business guests or family to for a special night out. You don't have... More

This steakhouse also offers great seafood entrees as well. Most recently we enjoyed a tender, flavorful filet mignon and succulent fried jumbo shrimp served with salad, baked potato and wonderful bread. Having... More

We're in town on vacation from Ohio. Wonderful surroundings. Even better food. Went with wife and 2 kids. Youngest enjoyed her kids meal. Wife had great grilled grouper. Son had pork chops that were maybe the best I've ever tried. I had turbo fish topped with spicy shrimp. All were seasoned perfectly. Also, the crab asparagus soup is in my... More

Arrived for first visit during "evening dinner special ". None of the "special priced dinners" included seafood. My brother in law had the pork chop which was "very good ". Everyone else ordered from the dinner menu. Our entrees included fried shrimp, lobster tail and prime rib. The lobster was not very flavorful. My daughter's prime rib was tender but... More

Four golf buddies went there for dinner last night. I've eaten there about 20 years ago and it was good then. It's even better now. From the appetizers, salad, Steaks to the dessert (pecan pie w/ice cream drizzled with Carmel bourbon sauce). Had the Delmonico steak -- Great. The lump crabmeat with asparagus soup had lots of crabmeat. Service could... More

We had the petit filet mignon and it was the best steak I have had in a long time. We liked this place so much we went back the next night and got the teriyaki chicken. It was great too! Highly recommend. Great décor.

This restaurant was a real pleasant surprise as it was our first visit and we had never heard any reviews. The decor is lovely and lots of private booths to have private dinners. The Prime Rib is out for this world, juicy, tender and large portions. The food is made to order and the meat is cooked over a wood... More
