My brother, sister-in-law, and I ate dinner here during a visit to Crestview. Vicki, our waitress, recommended the smoked tuna dip to start, which was excellent. Gumbo, chowder, and catfish were all superb. If you’re In Crestview, definitely stop in!

We found the cafe to be clean and the food very good. They had 2 soups to chose from and a variety of sandwiches and fritatas.Will go back soon. They have different activities in the evenings, so I imagine a fun place.

This is a Mom and Pop place but they have the best donuts we have ever had! My favorite is the cheese danish and my husband loves the apple fritters. They have a drive through but buy going in you can see ALL the donuts and wide selections. They do sell out out fast so don't wait till 10am to go! We have gone in and eaten our donuts there. Gone in and selected our donuts as well as used the drive through. We have never had any problems with the staff and our service dog.

My wife and I enjoyed visiting The Wild Olive. The food is delicious and the owner family is so kindly. Everything is homemade. Don't forget to ask the Creme Brulee. Unforgettable experience!

When Chill first opened it was THE place to hang at night. High school kids, families, young couple, old folks and everybody in between flocked there. Since then it's a little ragged around the edges and for some reason, the selection has been substantially reduced with several of the dispensers no longer in use. But the yoghurt and sorbets are still superb and the selection of toppings is as varied as ever (love those gummi blue sharks!), and for us old farts, there's a senior discount, which makes this a good bargain. We love to take out of town guests there. The staff are always friendly and personable and eager to serve. The management just needs to patch the place up a bit.

Hub City Smokehouse and Grill

Reviewed By Deano65 - College Station, Texas

Visited Hub City based upon Tripadvisor rating and hotel front desk recommendation. Server Brianna could not have been nicer or more welcoming. Both the brisket and the ribs were very flavorful, and the sides were very good. Their selection of sauces were very tasty. Prices were very reasonable. The Hub is in downtown Crestview, 2 miles north of I-10, but easy to find and well worth the detour. So easy in fact we stopped again for lunch on our way back west. Same great food and service. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.

Pounders Hawaiian Grill

Reviewed By Donald T - Crestview, Florida

These guys started out as a food truck in Crestview, Florida. They serve a tasty teriyaki steak or chicken plate with Hawaiian sticky rice and another side. I think one of the owners is from Hawaii. They were so busy that they moved into a vacant space in the Winn Dixie shopping center and use their food truck for catering. Even with the extra space, there always seems to be a line waiting for food.

Whenever we stopped by to grab some food, there were always people waiting for their food. It was a very popular food truck long before I started getting food from it. I think this is the only store at this time.

I usually get the steak. It's delicious! I've had the chicken and it's really good also. The sticky rice is awesome. I've never had rice like it before, but it goes really well with the teriyaki flavor of the meat.

The price of the food is pretty good. You can feed three people for about $4.00 each plus the cost of whatever drink you want. I usually drink water and I bring it with me. It's hard to beat that, even with fast food.

If you find yourself passing through Crestview on your way to the beautiful beaches in Destin, Ft. Walton Beach, Okaloosa Island, or any of the others in the area, stop by and grab some great food from this local spot. You'll be happy you did.

Wayne's Catfish House

Reviewed By pamelagay2015 - Crestview, Florida

Came in after church and was promptly seated in a booth as we requested (I bring a cushion for the hard wooden benches). It became busy quickly on this Sunday lunch hour.

Our server was attentive and accurate although the kitchen messed up one order for fried catfish fillets. I had already chosen the salad bar in lieu of the two sides that came with my fish dinner. The cook gave me an extra fillet for the wait, which really wasn't a wait as I wanted to finish my salad first.

Our fried entrees of cod and cat fish fillets were crispy with no greasy residue. The hush puppies were crisp and tender. I'm not a fan of the tartar sauce there which tastes like a salad dressing such as Miracle Whip (vinegary tart & sweet) with some kind of pickle relish. It may have been dill, but the sweet from the dressing made it hard to tell is it were dill or sweet relish. Cocktail sauce is very much to our liking.

My spouse and I brought 1/2 of our cat fish home, but left the tartar sauce there...I make my own with grated onion, a squirt of lemon juice, a dash of paprika, a generous amount of dill weed and a good thick mayonnaise!

My table mates sides were good: fried okra and potatoes were crispy outside and tender inside. The greens were fairly good. Coffee was of a medium strength, sweet tea was the good ol' southern kind! Refills were plentiful.

Décor is typical of small diners with nautical themes. Acoustics allows for easy conversation. Open and airy. Booths allow some privacy.

Everything appeared clean including the restrooms.

Handicapped parking is not great, but the two spots are near the door. Getting to the curb cut down for a wheel chair or walker is awkward and requires walking around 1-2 vehicles to get to it.

Cracker Barrel

Half Restaurant. Half Store. All Country

Reviewed By DaBigG - Slidell, LA

Very good breakfast. Food was good and hot. Consistent with other Cracker Barrel fare. Only reason I did not give 5 stars is that we thought the server was day dreaming and forgot about us, no biggie. We still enjoyed our meal and would return.
