We enjoyed the view and breakfast thoroughly, good experience. Probably the best value of any place we ate brekafast, nothing fancy just good food. We had eggs, sausage and pancakes- all hot and prepared as we asked. Waitress was in training but did a good job. Only a few tables eating outside, pretty slow morning. View was exceptional, nice breeze... More

Harbor Docks has a great location and lots of potential but they do not live up to potential at all. Service was poor and the food when it finally came out was sub-par. I wanted to go to a place where the locals go, and I really don't know why there were recommended. My family and I arrive around 6pm,... More

We got a tip to dine here from a couple of locals, and we had a great experience. Very good food, good service, and enjoyable ambience. Prices were reasonable for quality of what was served. This is a "real" seafood restaurant, which is somewhat of a departure from the usual touristic fare in the area (Bubba Gump, Fudpucker's, etc).

Just got back into town from San Diego and have hit HD right away for lunch every day since. Had the fresh chargrilled fish sandwich's along with the jasmine rice and field peas. Small salad and ice tea. And boy howdy, it was just as fresh and good as it was back in 1979 when I and my 5 bro's... More

FIRST OF ALL, as a born and raised destin girl, this USED TO BE the best restaurant in town. As you can see with other local reviewers, the past decade has sent this place DOWN HILL. As another reviewer put it "stick a fork in it", bc this **** is DONE. I went here on my 21 birthday and it... More

We had a great time at this place. My swordfish was caught early in the morning on the same day we ate. Their cornbread muffins and the cucumber salad are some of the best things on the menu. Overall I would recommend this place to friends looking for a non commercialized place to have a meal.

This long standing restaurant in the middle of Destin overlooking the harbor is a landmark of sorts to many folks who grew up in this area. It is totally non-pretentious and concentrates totally on serving the freshest seafood ever served daily. Fishermen and women, tourists and locals, often take their catch there to be served to them on the same... More

For years (18) I have defended Harbor Docks...see my previous reviews..and while lunch is still a really good deal with the daily specials...the sushi menu has dwindled and dwindled over the past two years and tonight they did not have six ingredients on their published web menu and could no longer make my favorite rolls. I ended up with Japanese... More
