Always busy offering a diversified menu reasonably priced. Entertainment on Sunday on patio. Liquor store has good wine selection not overpriced. Only liquor store in Diamond Beach servicing DB and the Crest which has no liquor licenses.

The Crest Tavern is a regular stop on our vacation. Nice selection of beers, fresh crisp salads and awesome Chicken Pot Pie and Shrimp salad sandwiches.
