This is a wonderfully beachy, casual and friendly place! The delicious Mahi mahi was just icing on the proverbial cake!! Our attentive and friendly waitress, Tina, was quick to meet our needs AND make perfect suggestions for a delicious meal. Dine outside if possible. They were able to accommodate my gluten free needs perfectly.

The food is always fantastic. Stacie did a wonderful job waiting on us. The Mahi is the best, and the burgers are the best on the beach

Pensacola definitely has some of the best seafood. So much food we could not eat it all. Service was friendly. Not a long wait. Food was outstanding. Ready to go back.

The scallops were very good, but the rice side was cool upon arrival at the table. They were out of the slaw but did substitute a house salad at no additional cost. The service was very attentive and tried to make everything right. The hush puppies were okay, but not as good as the Shrimp Basket's.

We came in to town close to the end of the night no one else in the place. Staff was super amazing, our waitress Sapphira was very accommodating, they were out of one of the specials but offered and amazing crab butter to put on the steak. The steaks the best I've ever had, cooked to perfect temp and juicy.... More

I ate here while on vacation and enjoyed the blackened fish. Tina was very prompt in greeting us, patient while we made our decision, and attentive during the meal. Sitting outside was nice. A good experience all around.
