Situated on the bay in Sandestin, the location is perfect, and it is especially convenient and located within Sandestin, but away from the noise of Baytowne Village.

Highly recommended are the grouper sandwich and the shrimp quesadillas, which were very flavorful.

The waitstaff that is in desperate need of training, especially in manners, is the only aspect preventing a five star rating.

Don't forget to visit the birds, MaryAnne and Skipper.

Great break from heat. Levric is an awesome bartender and the atmosphere is casual. Kids welcome too. There is even a Parrot for the kids to watch.

Atmosphere great--it's a marina after all. Food was ok. Fried platter was good but salad was below average. Service very slow and the place was not busy. We went on first day of marlin tournament so thought they would have had more staff to accommodate that.
