“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

We visited staff's for the first time while on vacation. It was a great experience. The food was the best we had all week long. Service was good and we were all very full by the time we left.

“Classic FL Supper Club”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

...is how I would sum it up. We visit Ft Walton yearly and enjoy this restaurant at least once a year on our trip. a nice break from the boardwalk and destin tourist traps. Homemade salad dressing amd tartar sauce served in mason jars...and homemade honey wheat bread. Serving portions are perfect - you won't feel grossly full but satisfied.

“Always A Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

We always visit this favorite anytime we're in FWB. We went last night & it was so delicious! We had fried crab claws as an appetizer, Fried oyster po'boy as our entrée and my son had a hotdog. The food came out fast and was delicious as always.

“Do not waste your time or money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

Terrible service. Only had two servers for the entire place. Small portions for the price. From forever to get our food for six. Bill was almost $200 hit me for 18 % tip. Will never be back.

“Been around forever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

We discovered Staff's over 30 years ago. Little has changed since then. I like the look inside. It is homey.
We usually spend a week at the beach in Destin, and eat at Staff's either one or two nights. It is our favorite place to eat in the area. Just a good seafood place which is what we go to the beach for.
Try the seafood platter for 2. It is enough food for four people. It last us 2 days.

We only eat seafood there so I cannot comment about the steaks.
