“Do they actually make any food?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

We waited for an hour and a half and no food. Said they were busy. At that point all of the food was not even prepared yet and had to be cooked. How do you run a business that way? Our group also had a large reservation that was checked on the day before which they forgot about. Will never return.

Good food. Cold beer. And a interesting collection of humans being ... Great place to chill out and enjoy the night.

Great local joint with relly good pizza. the crust has a garlic butter on it that gives it some kick. the restaurant is mostly a bar atmosphere.

“Best Pizza & Military Supporter EVER!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Yes, this is the original "Flagship" Helen Back location and yes its a waterfront dive of a building, BUT, not only is this the BEST PIZZA EVER, the owner Chris is the Best MILITARY SUPPORTER EVER too! His staff is young and perky and always friendly! Families can sit out on the deck and the kids can feed the fish in the Sound while adults enjoy the view. Plenty of sports TV's inside, foosball and pool table, and a pretty good place to see a local band. Great mix of bikers, surfers, locals and military! Support Helen Back as they support our military and our local community! Many locations, one opening in Niceville too, but the MOTHERSHIP still has the best pizza!
