“Great meal!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My wife and I along with two other couples enjoyed the sunset cruise and the meal onboard the Solaris. I opted for the sauteed shrimp with grits and vegetables which was very good. My wife and three others had the beef tenderloin and they each raved over it! The remaining member of our group had the Mahi-mahi which he said was good, but he wished he had gone with the tenderloin instead. Service was good and the boat ride was very smooth and enjoyable as it is in Choctawhatchee Bay. There was good listening music performed by a kind of karaoke singer. There is not a real dance floor so don't plan on much dancing. Leave your condo or hotel in plenty of time to park and walk the dock to the boat, and also to enjoy the area of Baytowne Wharf.

“Dining on the Bay, who knew it was that beautiful”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

After living in the area for most of our lives, and always dining on the Gulf, we decided to do something a little different...and boy were we glad we did. The Solaris has to be the BEST restaurant ON the bay, with some of the most breathtaking views in the area. The menu is has something for everyone, and with my love for steak and my wife's love for seafood we couldn't be happier. The service could be compared to a 5 star restaurant and the staff anticipates your every need. The entertainment was great, I'm not a dancer, but couldn't help myself as everyone else was already up and groovin! All in all, we will be coming back for sure.

“Solaris was an exceptional venue for a relaxing cruise”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

Had a great slow cruise along the Destin waterway with good food, great drinks and service. Staff was very accommodating even took me on a tour so not only do they have the different decks in and out but a beautiful stateroom that a bride could use as a wedding dressing room. They even do special parties and celebrations.Great venue- thank you!

“Best way to experience the Bay - great food, fun & service!”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

In the past year, I've had the opportunity to enjoy the Solaris on at least four occasions. The venue speaks for itself, offering the best views and most amazing sunsets to be had. The food is consistently delicious…I especially love the Grilled Fish of the Day and the Gulf Shrimp Sautee and the entertainment is equally great. I would recommend the Solaris for a fun evening out, special events and private parties. The staff is more than accommodating and the value can’t be beat.
