Oysters were great! This is more American than Japanese so sushi wasn't as authentic but still pretty good. Very convenient in the Harbor Village.

“A local's favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I have frequented this establishment since it opened and have loved it ever since. Knowing you are getting FRESH caught fish and not frozen off of a truck is a big plus. The best fish tacos in town are right here. Also, the shrimp and grits are amazing and come with fried green tomatoes (yum). The pan seared grouper and the pork chop are 2 other favorites from the menu. Make sure you give this place a try. Great food with an amazing view...who could ask for more?

“Excellent, Unique Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I are in the Fort Walton area for the summer so my family decided to visit us for the week. We tried several restaurants but by far our favorite was Jackacudas. The restaurant is located right on the bay so if you sit outside, you'll have a nice view of the water/harbor.
The place was extremely busy so service was a bit slow but the atmosphere is nice enough that we didn't mind.
What really impressed us was the unique food selections on the menu which used fresh ingredients. Our favorite appetizer was the pickled, deviled eggs with jalapeño and the crab bisque is fantastic.

“Good food ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Ate here for lunch and the food was very good. The grilled fish tacos were great and the waffles were excellent. Tried several different appetizers and they were good as well. This is a great local place with a nice atmosphere. My only complaint is that the service was slow.
