30 or 40 years ago almost all the chafes and restaurants from Pensacola thru Panama City looked like this place. Tiki style reigned supreme! The place IS a little grungy and dining here is not really all that romantic. But there are other places for that now. It does cater to the younger crowd, by that I mean, people that still like to dance and drink. The steaks are not prime and the local seafood is good. Honestly, I would never order scallops in a place like this...unless they assured me they were bay scallops, which is local. They don't mind if your kids are bad and noisy and really, isn't that nice?

This place is a little schizo ... Serving two masters- those looking for good food and those wanting to party. So... just go with it! best to get there for a late dinner, then hang around for live music!

This place was ok. Food was good but for the price I could gone to a fine dinning place. Presentation was sloppy, to much dressing on salad, salad was missing an item, filet was under cooked (recooked not to the requested temp of medium). Again just ok

The restaurant is known by the locals as the place for great steaks and chops. As you park in the parking lot, you know that this is not your usual eatery. The outside bar is lighted with mullti colored lights set among the live oaks and lanai, and sets the tone for a warm cordial evening. The band is good for listening or dancing, the drinks are generous. As you enter the restaurant the vaulted beams and the tastefuly furnished common rooms are relaxing. The wait staff is well trained and very helpful for the first time guest. I recommend the Steaks, as this is what Pandoras is known for. Just tell them how you want it cooked and relax, knowing that it will be perfect. The baked potato is just as popular and delicious. This restaurant started on Okaloosa Island and is still serving great food, located just off Hwy 98 at the bridge. It gives new meaning to "eat, drink, and be merry".

This is a restaurant and bar located on the corner of 30-A in Grayton Beach Fl. Always packed on the weekends. I've eaten here many times and always had a great meal and very good service. This time it was just cocktails and dancing to a great band! You gotta cut loose when in Grayton Beach FL.
