from the french onion soup to the blackened grouper sandwich on a croissant......from the wine list to the filet.....from the umbrella covered patio right on the water to the smoked salmon salad.....YOU cannot go wrong! This is where the locals go and you should too!

Okay, so the owner is actually Belgian, but the food is wonderful and the view of the water is enticing. It was chilly on the day we dined there, so we sat inside and enjoyed the waterscape from afar. I'm sure the outside deck is a favorite with most diners. The highlight of the meal was the crab croissant, stuffed to the brim with the most amazing crab salad. Now if only they will work on the creme brulée, we'll be in five-star territory.

The very best in the South East! We come every year (and some of us come twice a year). We are a group of friends who love great cuisine and beautiful atmosphere with good service! AND - This place has it all! If you are in Fort Walton, or even close to Fort Walton - you must experience this restaurant! Great people, great food, and Worth every penny you spend!

This is a favorite for us. The dishes are different from other restaurants in the area. I lone the chicken piccata, my husband always gets seafood specials. It is hard to find this restaurant, but worth the effort. The location can't be beat on a pretty day.

The food is excellent (the best liver and onions you'll ever eat!) as is the service. And you can't beat that beautiful view of the Santa Rosa Sound.
