Ok, we admit it, we may be a little spoiled when it comes to seafood! Living on the water right next to the luckiest fishing village in the nation ensures that the seafood we devour every day is fresh, sweet, and delicious! It’s so good that we have learned to never order anything from the sea during our infrequent visits to the desert—especially after tasting the wonders that arise from the kitchens of The Lobster Tail right here on Okaloosa Island! Juicy and fresh, the meals served here bear no resemblance to the disappointing tails you may have tried away from the coast!
