The food was very good. The Boil was outstanding and the salmon was very good. The bolognise was also good. The fried green tomatoes are a must try! The only thing keeping it from being excellent was that it took a very long time to get the food.

Funky atmosphere. Enjoyed looking at the artwork. Unique dishes, a bit pricey, but worth it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We can't wait to visit again next time we are in town.

Good food and service for our large family group and little ones. Kids menu is limited but worked. Was unaware and not advised that kids eat free from kids menu before 7...we were charged for all their meals, so maybe good to ask. Adults shared calamari and fried green tomatoes as starters, which were delicious. Agree with prior poster on... More

The place is very eclectic with blues paintings everywhere. Funky is a good word for the place. The food and service were excellent I had the fish tacos and my partner had the grouper both were very good. The calamari was the best we had in Destin and New Orleans earlier in the trip. Our server was very attentive. Children... More

Rarely have I been so let down by tripadvisor but this meal was one of those times. With ratings so high, my expectations were equally high. The decor inside is really neat despite the odd exterior (think strip mall). Lots of cool paintings. We got the most introverted waitress in the history of waitresses to eat with in laws who... More

This is not a fancy place, come as you are. We ate here last year and it was good. This year it was great. WOW. Fried green tomatoes, crab cakes with cheese grits and mushroom risotto. Lobster ravioli, and awesome pizza. Creme brûlée was terrific. Priced right. This is a hidden treasure in Destin. You won't be disappointed.

I have not had a complete meal at Graffiti but plan to in the near future. However, my husband and I stopped in for a drink and something light. We went with the fried green tomatoes and ceaser salad. The food was great! The absolute best fried green tomatoes I have ever had. Plenty enough to share as an appetizer... More

The only reason this place gets 5 stars is because there isn't 6 stars. Found Graffiti's at the last minute at 9:30 on a Tuesday night. The best complete meal we have had by far at the beach. As other reviews have posted, the fried green tomato dish is yo die for. The best fried green tomatoes I've ever had.... More

Food was delicious, service started off great....but took forever to get food. Kids meals came out early. Salads came out 15-20 min after kids meals. Entrees came out 15-20 min after salads. They were not busy enough to justify the service. We will not be back.

Firstly, thanks to our server Jacob. He was attentive and professional. The menu is diverse with all our selections executed well. Prices are fair and the music is a fun accompaniment. The restaurant was recommended to us by one of the street vendors - 'it is the best in Sandestin'.
