Description: Inspired southern style. Simple yummy food from local ingredients. We invite you to relax and enjoy friends and family in our backyard with a view. We have the best 'backyard' on the beach with two white sand beaches, covered and grassy dining areas, lots for the kids to do, and a stylish cocktail bar. It's without a doubt the best place on the island to watch a sunset.

We were visiting Pensacola and thus was our first time to this restaurant and we loved the views and atmosphere. We had about an hour wait, but we enjoyed some of their yard games and sat around the bonfire. My kids loved it and it kept them entertained. Food and service was great! The one thing we didn’t understand was that we had such a long wait, but there appeared to be a lot of empty tables. Maybe not enough waitstaff? All in all, highly recommend!

Checked in at 5pm and told 20 min wait. Wait turned out to be 53 minutes! But during that wait time I was able to observe the waitstaff operation. The team seemed overwhelmed and operated independently from each other, no one pulling together to ensure their guests had an enjoyable experience. Most tables seemed to have to wait over 20 minutes for their food to arrive once seated at the tables. Waitstaff was going from table to table to apologize for the delay in service. Plenty of open tables...just not enough waitstaff or kitchen staff available to meet the demand.

Had a great lunch here today with my dog Bella. The patio is very nice with a beautiful view. The food and drinks were excellent and very reasonably priced. Megan even made sure Bella had her own dish of water.

Being a local, RFBF was one of our favorites and always a recommendation to our visitors. However, there seems to have been a change in the menu. Gone are items like the Burger topped with Shrimp, the Quesadilla's....a much smaller menu than before. Not thrilled with the changes as our fav's have been removed. The upgrades to the outside area are OUTSTANDING, the ambiance is EXCELLENT and our service has always been TOP NOTCH...BUT -- the changes in the menu will likely diminish our recommendations in the future.

We were told it would be over an hour wait so we went to the bar and found a couple of tables and ate there. Service was absolutely horrible but the food and drinks were really good. I had their award winning crab cakes which lived up to their hype. My husband had the fried shrimp and he said it was the best he had ever had.
