Amazing! We used a groupon coupon and there were NO Restriction! If you want a great trendy gourmet meal for reasonable $$- this is the place! My husband and I had the pork chop with Brussels sprouts! Our guests had the shrimp and grits! Unbelievable! We also suggest the roasted beets appetizer! The "icing on the cake" was the key... More

Chef Dan Pettis is on top of his game! The menu is very modern, sleek and minimalist. Service is fast and servers are friendly. Food was prepared hot and on time and tasted fresh and wonderful. Great local wine selection with a local beer tap behind the restaurant. Highly recommend for date night, business meetings or brunch.

Whenever I visit my mother, I always take her to this restaurant in Niceville, Florida. I cannot remember the name of our server, however he was the young man who answered the phone when I called to make reservations. He let me know there were several large parties coming in for company holiday dinners and earlier was better. We got... More

OK - I get it. Some people likea quirky little dinner. . I don't want shoe string potatoes as a substitute for bread at a restaurant. This is the ONLY restaurant I have been in that you cannot get bread with dinner. That is crazy. We went with our friends on a Thursday evening. We went early but the place... More

So, we went there a few weeks ago after having some drinks at 3rd Planet Brewing. I will say that their complementary fries are incredible. It was downhill from there. My wife had the steak and I had the special, Jamaican fish. The steak was bad and for the fish...I've been to Jamaica many times and that dish had nothing... More

Honestly, my wife would have rated the meal higher - her food was actually pretty good. The Pork Milanese dinner was breaded and cooked well, and the salad was excellent. The only complaint was that the plate was too small, and the mashed potatoes had to rest on top of the pork. There was no way to add the salad... More

My wife and I stop in here at least once a month. Excellent, small family-owned place. Chef Dan is an Award Winning Chef, and is regularly rated Top Chef and Caterer in the area.
