We visited Monday Oct. 2nd. There was no wait, we sat outside. The view is beautiful. Our waitress, I can't remember her name was good.. We started with the Tuna Dip which tasted just like chicken salad with huge chunks of celery in it and the Calamari which was ok but the marinara wasn't very good. My husband seemed to be the only one who liked his meal. The Gumbo had NO flavor whatsoever. The ginger salad dressing tasted old. The Amberjack with rice and shrimp was just mediocre at best. The fish was dry. All in all I was very disappointed in our meals. We paid $150 for mediocre seafood. I work at a seafood restaurant in KY and to be honest ours is much better tasting and fresher than here. We have ours flown in 2-3 times per week. I will not recommend this place.

We happened to see this restaurant driving thru Pensacola on the way to Joe Patti's seafood store. We decided to stop this time for lunch while in the area and glad we did. The food was fresh and very well seasoned. The service was very good too and Tia took good care of us. The Calamari was great and the entrees were spot on too. The Collard greens were some of the best I've ever had. Definitely going to be on our list of places to dine around Pensacola. The view setting on the outside deck is fantastic looking out into the gulf.

Great evening table side overlooking the bay. Server was great and very responsive but the food disappointed. Very little healthy on the menu and the portions were huge and expensive. My husbands pie was tasteless and obviously from a mass producer.

Food average: could not find crab or shrimp in the dip . . .Service: wait staff needs training. Sitting on the porch under a light breeze was delightful. Better food other places.

Went there for lunch kind of late, about 3 pm. Sat outside with no one around. Listened to the music and the sounds of the water lapping on the shore. Boiled peel and eat shrimp (with hush-puppies) were good. Lobster and shrimp bisque was quite tasty. Amberjack and shrimp with rice entree was very good. AND "happy hour" $4 wine was very nice (from 3-6pm). I have no complaints. Good views, food, and service. I would definitely go back. Reasonable prices.
