Restaurant is on the water. We've tried a few times. Some food items are hits and some are misses - I guess depends on the cook. One can usually find a BOGO free offer in the local Sunday newspaper. Service is good and staff friendly.

Happy hour prices are great for this delicious food and drinks. You can also get 25 cent oysters during the Happy Hour. The bartenders make good drinks as well.

Lunch on the water- had the Shrimp and Grits which was delicious! Service was good and staff was pleasant. The water views were serene. Friend had the half pound burger which was also very good. Would definitely return.

Made reservations for a party of 13 outside. Sunday Brunch is magnificent especially since they had bottomless mimosas for $8.99. The only thing that turned me off was the guy on stage playing dark dismal classical music on Easter Sunday.

Of all the places we have eaten in Pensacola this one doesn't rank up at the top unfortunately. Don't get me wrong there was nothing wrong with the food or the service or the drinks it just didn't give me that wow that had come from most of the restaurants we've been to in the area. Usually I go on... More

We were satisfied, but the food is pretty typical for this area. Lots of fried seafood. Great outdoor seating overlooking the bay and good service.

The view, the location, and ambience can't be beat, and the food and prices are good enough. Avoid the seafood gumbo - worst ever.

One of our go-to restaurants before a Wahoos baseball game & sunny weather days! Outside seating is right on the Cove & weekend live music is often available. This is why we live here! My husband loves the turnip greens & always fresh fish selections! Perfect for families & popular for a lovely sunset evenings!

Nice place, clean and efficient. Food was good, service was excellent. Great views of the water and local area. Next door to the ballpark. A good place usually for a nice lunch or dinner.
