The food was good, just not the best in Fort Walton. However the prices are manageable. Wait staff was decent

Don't let the size of the place fool you because the food was great. The place reminded me of a barbecue shack but with seafood. The people were friendly and our food was served very fast. I highly recommend.

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
