We were looking for something quick and easy for dinner after being on the beach all afternoon. This place was a fun find. The pizza was average pizza, however the garlic knots were more than worth the trip! We would return, and get TWO orders of garlic knots!

We got the pizza and cheese bread. Both were delicious. The crust is homemade and is so light and tasty. Our toppings were fresh and well proportioned on the pie. I highly recommend this place. Be aware that the Destin location is closed (the website has not been updated). We dined at the one in FWB.

Ate here a couple times while in Fort Walton Beach, never disappointed. Go between 3 and 5 pm Monday through Thursday and the discount is tremendous, same quality and same amount of food. The place is clean, the servers are very professional and going early the prices are great. Four of us was in our group and ordered different items, everything was outstanding.

Look, I've worked as a server, and two of my three kids worked their way through college as servers. So I'm about as sympathetic to a waiter/waitress as anyone on the planet. But when i see a mandatory gratuity charge I expect it to be within reason. If I had sit-down service for a table of six, where the waiter/waitress took all our drink and food order, then brought the food and drinks to the table I could see how a 20% gratuity would be reasonable. The waiter at a buffet does less than half the work they would do at the same size table where customers are making individual drink and food orders, the orders have to be put into the kitchen, the server has to ensure the orders are correct, then deliver and serve those orders at the table...then return to make sure everything is okay...and more. A 20% gratuity at a buffet where servers do little more than take and deliver drink orders and bus used dishes from the table is freaking ridiculous.Thank you so much for your thoughtful review. We're very happy that you enjoyed the food and we will bring your point about the buffet gratuity to the management.

Magnolia Grill Fort Walton Beach

Reviewed By CondosOnTheBeach

We are owners in this area. We have tried multiple times over many years to come to this restaurant for a meal. We have been met with closing earlier than posted, need a reservation when not busy and just poor service. So last night we went back after more than a one year break. So sad and disappointed that they cannot seem to get it together. The wait staff is young and focused but there is only so much that they can do. I asked specicically for a fresh bottle of wine...came out old and oxidized. The wait staff immediately apologized. I feel that she has been there before. Our entrees were good, but not great. I am so sorry and disappointed for this restaurant as they have the opportunity to be great if they wish. Love the setting and the ambience, just really miss this mark for the food. I exoect that we will not be back and we will advise our renters as such.Thank You for dining with us. I’m glad our staff immediately apologized for your wine and while young, used her experience to take care of your needs. We are pleased to be a restaurant that still takes and honors reservations, and as such often appears empty while tables are awaiting those guests. Feel free to contact me personally if you would like. Tom

Ali's Bistro

Reviewed By Brands_03

Had dinner here, fairly early and with a reservation (1845). We were seated inside, nice and cool but pretty busy. We were quickly offered menus and we ordered wine then food. The wine arrived quickly but the food was painfully slow. A lobster ravioli and shrimp dish and seared salmon eventually arrived after an hour. The ravioli pasta was too thick and chewy although the filling was really tasty. My wife’s salmon was well cooked but needed more spinach and the bowl of spaghetti with a sauce dominated by a sharp caper taste was completely superfluous, but this is the US. So a nice evening spoilt by a long wait and mediocre food. And the wine was pretty expensive too.

Clemenza's at Uptown

Reviewed By Lilwhit83

This little place seemed popular with the locals but not so much the tourists since it’s off the main path. We loved it. Immediate seating. Very nice atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was excellent!!! Large portions. Best Italian food I’ve had in a very long time. No bread served sadly, and the appetizers were geared toward two people not large groups but the excellence of the rest of the food makes up for that in abundance.
