We live in Texas stay on Okaloosa Island FWB in September. This is one of our Favorite places well worth a 25 minute drive for the great food and location on the Bayou.

Both had fresh Mahi, I had a giant seafood platter, wife coconut chicken. Second time tonight with sister, friend Sue and my wife. Enjoyed the Hush Puppies w Strawberry butter.

Ordered a bowl of Seafood gumbo and what a major disappointment. For $5.99 I received a small bowl that had about a quarter inch of what I guess was gumbo but did not have the consistency of any I have ever had, plus it was...covered in a huge mound of yellow rice. Who uses yellow rice in gumbo anyway? My wife ordered a fish sandwich that consisted of a piece of fish cooked so long it was like rubber. Not very Happy with the food but the service was good. Won't be returning for a whileMore

We were out for a drive and came upon this restaurant just outside of Niceville. We had the seafood platter and the coconut shrimp salad. The food waa delicious, served at the right temperature and the service was excellent! The salad is served with a...lovely homemade citrus dressing. My husband loved the fried fish on his seafood platter.More

Was here several months ago and the salmon was like shoe leather but my wife really enjoyed the shrimp skewer. Thought we'd give them another try. Little things first. Hostess asked how everything tasted I mentioned the water was terrible. The response "I know, it's...Valparaiso water and I won't drink it" No separate fork for the salad, no teaspoon for the hot tea and the tea is served in a soup cup On the more serious side, the shrimp on the shrimp skewer was like rubber. The shrimp pasta dish I had was okay but couldn't compare with the pasta dish they discontinued a couple of years ago. This pasta special was in my mind anything but special. On the plus side the service was good, the salad was good as were the hush puppies and we always enjoy the atmosphere.More

Good seafood. I had the broiled platter. It was good with one exception. The steamed veggies were old, over cooked and served cold! After I ordered the waitress brought hope of a unique dining experience...hot hushpuppies with Strawberry butter as a side. A very Unique...and tasty combo. The meal disappointed however. The prices are good and the food was okay. Check it out and try something other than the broiled platter. I'll be back.More

They do take reservations. I would make them just in case, as I did when we went, but then ended up not needing them anyway.
