Great selection of local beer! Food was excellent tasting, maybe a bit overpriced. The staff was very friendly.

The food was great. I had the shrimp tacos and they were nicely done. The wife had the crab combo and she was content. The prices were ok. I recommend the place if you like crabs.

We arrived here by boat and docked right next to a pier leading to the restaurant. (It was off-season and quite easy and accessible.) We stayed with appetizers only on the big roomy deck, and the shrimp and oysters were just fine. There were some creative cocktails, but I went a bit further and substituted Bombay Sapphire for the vodka/cucumber concoction they were offering. (I never write about cocktails, but I’m not a vodka fan, and the gin they had came out of a gun, so voila.) It was fabulous. Don’t know what the concoction was, but it was very refreshing and flavorful on a sunny afternoon. This is a nice place four lunch for a pleasant afternoon.

We enjoyed a nice lunch on our last day in Ft. Walton Beach. We tried the crab claws for an appetizer ... they were good but the price was a little high for the portion size. For the main meal I had the pick 2 dinner with Red Fish and Soft Shell Crab. My wife had the lunch portion of fried shrimp. The food was cooked fresh and seasoned well. The server was timely with orders and refills. Overall a good meal with good portion sizes.
