Hole in the wall that was a nice surprise!

Graffiti fits the bill for "hole in the wall" but the food was exceptional!! The service on our visit left a lot to be desired, but our meals made up for the lack of service.

My family and I had such a great experience. The atmosphere was a little dark but a welcome change from being in the sun all day. The artwork is eclectic and fun and our server was informative and friendly. The food was fresh and beautifully presented. I had the mahi and my husband had a the cheese and tomato pizza.... More

Not good! Although we were really the only ones in there, the derive was crappy! I'd like to say that out of our party of 8, only 2 dinners were decent. Not worth the trip or tip!

This venue provides the best live music in Destin without a shadow of a doubt. Love the expansion! Graffiti's has the best Shrimp Alfredo I've had. Highly recommend this place!

We went here for Father's Day. We ordered the grouper. The grouper was disgusting. We informed the waiter who later told us that THE CHEF KNEW IT WAS BAD BUT SERVED IT ANYWAY. This shows that this place has NO RESPECT FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS. Even though the grouper was removed from our check, the dining occasion was RUINED. No attempt... More

Can I give a zero rating? We had been to Graffitis a couple of times over the last several years. It had been a place you could bring the kids for pizza. My wife and I decided to give it a try on Sunday evening for dinner. TERRIBLE. The place was almost empty, about 3 tables, yet the service was... More

We ate here after we were given a two hour estimated wait elsewhere. The host seemed new and a bit lost. Our waitress ended up seating us after about 10 or 15 minutes and went beyond her duty as a waitress. She was very friendly and nice. I can't recall her name but she was wonderful. The bread was AMAZING!... More

This is a great place. I read the "mediocre" reviews and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely friendly. We came for a few drinks, but ended up having dinner. Hubby and I both had the garlic olive oil red pepper pasta with chicken. It was spicy and delicious. I can only say good things about this place! Funky and... More

I have visited Graffiti on multiple occasions and always enjoyed it. I don't know what happened, but it took over 2 hours to have our meal in a basically empty restaurant. Our server was profusely apologetic, saying there was a staff shortage, but it seems more like no staff at all. There must have been only one person in the... More

Yes it was a bad night. We had a Chef out and was down to one Chef, plus we got in a table of 17 without reservations and it took longer than usual for service. I really apologize for this but when you come back you will see it was just a bad night. Everyone has one at one time... More
