One of my favorite places to eat when visiting Gulf Breeze on vacation. I've never had a meal I didn't enjoy 100%! We had a terrific server today named, Wayne. I encourage you to ask for him. He is so pleasant and personable. Enjoy!

Meeting friends for happy hour is always a great time (It's the company). The views for sunset are unbelievable, the menu "sounds amazing " the dishes (in this case flat bread pizzas) are just ok, a bit underwhelming. Our friends got the meat & cheese...More

Make sure you make reservations on the weekend. We walked in and were immediately seated on a busy Saturday night. The calamari with 3 sauces is simply a great app. Everyone enjoyed it. The entrees were not huge, but were prepared well. The crab cakes...More

Absolutely one of the best restaurants in Pensacola. TRUE Baltimore crab cakes - the BEST in Pensacola! The Mahi Reuben sandwich is delicious (but would be better with grouper!) Add to that the view of beautiful boats and an awesome wine list and it rates...More
