Atmosphere nothing like previous restaurant, cold, too big and not cozy. Fried oysters were overdone and grilled oysters too salty.

I wish I could review this restaurant, but after driving to Sandestin based on this address and going through two gates to get a visitor's pass, we found a vacant restaurant with "We have moved" hand scribbled signs in the windows.

Amazing atmosphere. Just like the one off Bourbon Street but in an upscale gated community. The chargrilled oysters we just as good as the ones in NOLA. Crazy good area for a beautiful safe atmosphere in a yacht club sitting with a New Orleans look....More

There is not a happy hour. But...benefit of early dining is less wait time. It is always crowded and usually wait time for a table. It is expensive but well worth it!
