This restaurant was recommended by so many people in Destin.They told us they had a buy one get one get one free menu. My husband and I went with another couple.We were seated as soon as we walked in, did not have a reservation, however this was Jan.at about 5pm.We had a table by the window where you can see the harbor.The food was wonderful . Three of us had the grouper and my husband had the red fish.I tasted the redfish and it was the best.I You could get the two for one meal from a selection of 5 or 6. The service was great, the waiter was knowledgeable and helpful. We would definitely go back there.

We've been to their happy hour 3 times and had a consistent experience. The 1/2 price drinks and appetizers are awesome, but the service is always RUDE. Last time we stood on the lobby for several mins, made eye contact multiple times with a guy working the bar, kept expecting him to tell us to have a seat or that someone would be right with us, he never did. I finally asked if it was open seating, he said yes. Gah couldn't he have told us that when he saw us?!?! The same lady has waited on us during all 3 visits. Despite being mature adults, my husband and his friend are doctors in the military, we feel like annoying teenagers to these people. We are always polite, but never get a warm feeling here. Oh well, we will continue to go, but only because the drinks and apps are 1/2 price and very good!

My boyfriend found this restaurant on Yelp, so we tried it. I order the chicken pasta dish which was not pushed by the waiter, but I LOVED IT!!!!!! He ordered a fish dish that the waiter strongly recommended, and indicated that they've been serving for 20 years. He thought it was fantastic and was pleased with his decision to have chosen that dish.

Great food, great service and the ambiance was magnificent!

Really enjoyed ourselves there... would love to go back!
