Food was great and service, better. My venison was overcooked, the waitress and chef apologized and quickly made it right. Stuff happens, I get it but it is how you respond that makes the difference. These guys were on it. The dinner service was slow given the few tables of seated guests but otherwise a wonderful experience. See you next... More

This was our 3rd time visiting this restaurant, all times special occasions, this time my husbands birthday. It was over Memorial Day so I blame that for the very poor service, food quality and overall experience. Past visits have been great, so very saddened and disappointed. Our appetizer set under a heat lamp (shrimp) which we had in the past... More

Best food we had during our vacation by far. Service was stellar and the setting was very romantic. We ate dinner after sunset, but I can imagine that the view at that time is pretty amazing.

If you are looking for the perfect place for an engagement, anniversary, birthday celebration, or just a romantic dinner on the beach, look no further than the Henderson Park Inn "Toes in the Sand" package!! The package includes a wine and fruit tray upon arrival, happy hour with delicious cocktails and wine, and a romantic candle lit dinner on the... More

The last night of our four-night stay in the Destin area, and my husband and I agree that this may be one of our best dinners - ever. Our waiter was Jim. Lively with a sense of humor, but not overbearing. We each ordered a glass of wine and the salad caprese. Before that arrived, Jim served us a generous... More

My wife surprised me with dinner on the beach. The set-up was great, the atmosphere was romantic, the beach was awesome and my wife is terrific! From the shock of seeing a table on the beach set-up for us to the sunset on the beach I'm speechless. Our waiter, Dustin, took care of every request we needed. He knew the... More
