“A satisfying evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

I am staying at the 4 points at Sheraton and decided to take a stroll (About a 10 minute walk) from the hotel. I first went to a Gelato itlian place where I grabbed a pizza and then went to a live music place called howl at the moon. Overall, I will say that the experience was satisfying. The demographic in this location obviously constituted white miiltary folks from a nearby cantonment in Fort Walton. People were in general pretty friendly.There is a place called as the crab trap and then another called the swamp which appeared to be a night club. Not too many choices for vegetarians or non night club frequenters like myself, but for those that are into sea food, might provide some pretty cool options.

Loved the food options that we could easily walk to on the beach from Waterscape. Very cute shops - perfect for beach gifts!

“A pretty good place to hang at the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

There are a few stores and restaurants. It is not a place to hang out for a long period of time unless you plan on spending some time on the very nice beach. I stretched to call it 'very good', but it is better than going to a beach that has nothing,

“Food and fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is such a wonderful place to take your family while you're on vacation. You can visit the beach and have a great time and then when you're hungry and ready to go you can visit one of the many restaurants that are located inside the boardwalk. They also have a bunch of shopping places to get souvenirs and such.
