Always delicious

We went twice while we were in Destin. The food is fresh, including the hush puppies and key lime pie. One night we brought the red snapper the boys caught on their deep sea fishing trip and the cooked it for us. Reasonably priced, Rochelle was a attentive waitress.

Have been here several times through the years and was always happy until this trip. The seafood did not taste as fresh as the past. We went to the new one and maybe that was all that mattered as it was not as good as the other one in the harbor. I got scallops and they were just ok. The... More

We chose this place on a whim, and loved it so much we brought my mom and dad back two days later. Both times we were told there would be an hour wait, but it was less than 45 minutes. The shrimp are huge, soft shell crab sandwich is amazing, and so are the fried oysters. My dad doesn't like... More

The food and service were great. We were very satisfied with the grouper, shrimp, sesame tuna and crab legs. The Bloody Mary was delicious. We had reservations before 5p - when we left the place was jam-packed. Definitely will come back. Needs more toilets. Banisters and tables were a little sticky - but could be the humidity.

I expected a long wait. I ended up getting a good view, however I waited a long time to have royal reds and red snapper. I take my time ordering making sure that is what I wanted and then the waitress tells me after I ordered that they are all out of snapper and royal reds. I was very disappointed... More

We really enjoyed eating lunch there, the food was so fresh and yummy, and the atmosphere was relaxing and enjoyable. The Captains platter had great fried oysters, fried shrimp, and fried mahi-mahi. The wife and daughter shared the colossal fried shrimp, which filled them up nicely. Oh I can't forget to mention the fried crab claws, they were heavenly, and... More

We have tried to come here several times in the past, but the wait was too long. This year, we timed it right and it was well worth it! Best crab legs I have ever had! My picky eaters ate everything, and the wait staff was amazing! Get there before 5pm to avoid the long wait!
