Lovely restaurant overlooking the water. Plenty of outside seating. Menu good and varied. Wait staff very friendly and helpful. Food cooked well and very tasty. Well priced for the locations. Would certainly return and recommend.

Enjoyed an early dinner here before the crowds. Crab cake salad recommended by our waiter was excellent. My companion's flatbread was way too greasy - why do they call it flatbread when it is really pizza??? Atmosphere is great and most of the staff was...More

Had lunch here on a Saturday with family. The restaurant is right on Pensacola Bay adjacent to a marina. The water views are very pleasant. We sat inside as it was a bit warm that day, but there is an outdoor seating area too. The...More

We didn't, but I would be ready for a little wait. They have an open bar which allows you to get a drink and walk around the boat dock while you wait.
