A fried oyster is a fried oyster is a fried oyster. They were good, but not great, just a typical fried oyster. Serving was a little small too. Collard greens could have been more smokey. Burger was very good and big too. Fries were the usual too. Order at the counter and they bring your food to you. Soft drinks, tea, etc. are self serve. Overall just a usual restaurant, not bad but nothing special.

The Sugar Shak

Reviewed By cbwilkjr - Johns Creek, Georgia, USA

I left this dessert experience extremely frustrated. Short of serving very good Edy's ice cream, their prices are a joke. To start, they sell cute little souvenir t-shirts, but you need to spend $30-40 for a short sleeve version. Seriously? A small milkshake that is maybe a 10-12 ounce cup cost nearly $6. And it goes on and on. There is tons of candy options in addition to the ice cream. Also, if you don't spend $10, you must pay in cash. For the prices they are charging, I think they can suck up a few cents of profit to take a small charge. I had $5 in cash, so I had to purchase a $2 bottle of water to make the $10 minimum, which really irritated me. To me, this is a greedy establishment taking advantage of a generally affluent vacation visitor base, and it is really offensive. I respect others desire to enjoy their offerings, but I will spend my hard earned money in a dessert establishment trying to make a reasonable profit.

Restaurant Paradis

Reviewed By Wit2415 - Destin, Florida

Food is fabulous, yes a little pricier but well worth it. We had the bay scallops, foie gras, my husband had the steak everything was fabulous.

Atmosphere was a little different since the patio seating is actually on the front sidewalk of the shops, not as romantic as we had hoped but we made it work.

Service was excellent.

Crabby Steve's

Reviewed By RCF2915 - Atlanta, Georgia

This one of the few ocean front bars/restaurants in this area. It is only accessible via the beach for those who do not rent/own in the High Pointe development in Seacrest. It was next door to our beach community and very convenient.
Yes, there is an owner named Steve who comes by to check on the service and help bus the tables. They are all outdoors and have a great view of the gulf. They have a full bar, reasonably priced. The service was prompt and friendly. We at lunch there one day and had happy hour drinks and appetizers the next. All of the food was solid -- no complaints. They even have a kids menu.
The one thing you should know is that the High Pointe resort guests have to pass thru Crabby Steves to get to the beach so get used to seeing paddle boards, etc passing thru.

Caliza is an interesting place. During the day it is the community hangout with swimming pools, bathing houses, and lots of deck chairs/tents. It's a community gem. But at night it becomes Caliza the fine dining restaurant. It's a beautiful place, with completely outdoor dining. Unfortunately, the night our group dined it was a bit chilly, and even though portable heaters were provided, they didn't really keep us warm enough. Aside from the surrounding beauty, the food was just so-so. My wahoo was not fresh and was overcooked, and the rice was crunchy. However, my husband's duck entree was delicious and he said the best he's ever had. The baby gem salad was very nice with fresh citrus, and the She-crab soup was also very good. All in all we had a lovely dining experience, but the food was hit or miss.
