I should start by saying that I own a restaurant in north Georgia. So, I pay attention to detail. These guys are awesome! They have their own system and they have it down to a science. I found this restaurant through trip advisor, they were the #1 in Ft. Walton Beach and they earned that. Our food came of fast and everything was perfect. The portions were fairly large and everything I had was great.

So what did we get. I had the sampler platter and a bowl of gumbo. Now I like to make my own Gumbo from scratch. It is a very long process and easy to ruin. Their Gumbo was delicious and had an outstanding flavor, I was totally impressed. Next, the seafood platter, fried shrimp, oysters and fish. The fried oysters were amazing, the fish was very fresh and the shrimp were a good size and very good as well. It came with hush puppies and two sides. I chose cheese grits, and their beans, both were very good.

Needless to say, I left very full and very happy. I talked with the staff and they were very friendly and attentive. This is a great restaurant. It might be smallish and even a little hole in the wall-ish. But that's where I most often find the best food. I loved it and I highly recommend it to you.

Do not expect 5 stars accommodations but the food is better than some fancier restaurants around town. Great place if you need fast food at a great price.

The shrimp were fantastic.
Barbecued shrimp and grits are very good but could use more food to fill you up
Scallops were good
We drove from Destin twice in our week long vacation that is worth it
although it is too expensive to fly to for just a meal from Greensboro NC
