Our Family has been in Fort Walton Beach for well over 100 years.  Our Family proudly continues to serve our community today.  We have literally THOUSANDS of documents and artifacts recognized by the US Government and the State of Florida as true and authentic.

We are dedicated to providing you and your family with the best tasting, freshest seafood and authentic cuisine on the Gulf Coast.  Our history is strong and we are proud. 

The Staff family settled in Fort Walton Beach (or Camp Walton as it was known back then) as the proud proprietors of the "Gulf View Hotel" which is still standing behind Staff's Restaurant. The Gulfview Hotel Historic District (also known simply as the Gulfview Hotel) is a U.S. historic district (designated as such on October 22, 1992)
