Our server was attentive to our every need. Food was hot and delicious. Drinks never ran out. Views of the ocean was great too!

Snowbirding for the first time to Florida's Panhandle virtually required us to find some reliably good seafood purveyors. We tried Crab Trap because of its ranking by Trip Advisor readers, but were more impressed by the wonderful view of the sunset out its southern windows...More

Tried this large, beach front eatery again hoping that it would be better the second time. Nope. Still average and still expensive. Service here is good. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Carmen was a great server. Quick, friendly and professional. Even noticed my haircut and mentioned how Rick's honors servicemen with a 10% discount. We will definitely return and get Carmen to serve us again. Refreshing to see people who enjoy their job and do it...More

We really enjoyed the food, view and service. Food was very good, enjoyed everything we ate. The restaurant is right on the beach so the view was amazing. Our server was Thomas and was simply amazing. All around great experience.

Same old fried beach food, just under another restaurant name served by unexperienced or over-worked servers.

Has a great view. Bar drinks were decent priced. Food was great but the cost is up there. Fun atmosphere for the kids outside

I had a seafood platter that made me wonder why people get excited about seafood. Lovely view but I doubt I'll go back. I'd much rather go to McGuire's Irish Pub in Destin.

This restaurant is closed at this location. They have lost their lease. I'm not sure if they are relocating somewhere else or if they are closed for good. The sign posted says that negotiations are ongoing with another restaurant. Stay tuned!

We did not loose our lease, we choose to close due to many reasons and it was not that we lost the lease, we choose to terminate it ourselves. Please know the facts before posting on a public site, thank you.

There's an awesome deck/board walk with great view of the beach and ocean. it's nice to sit there at night on the beach under the stars. The food was good too!

This location is under brand new owners with over 50 years of experience total! We have added new products and food to the menu, just to name a few, different pasta dishes, carrying fresh fish and seafood, and also introducing our family recipe for prime rib! We have a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico and we also have great drinks and food that is offered not only at the restaurant but at our pool and beach bar locations!!
