Not only do you pay for way overpriced food, you pay for crappy service too. Have to pull the waitess a side to ask for refills because shes too busy talking to other employees about personal stuff. So we absolutely did not leave a good tip but we did tip. As we were leaving she walks out the door "sir... More

Kenny D's has the best Po boy in Destin, fully dressed with mayo, lettuce and tomato and a mound of crisp fried shrimp. The bread is crisp and warm. You won't be disappointed for sure. Kenny you do have the best Po boy around.

The red beans and rice were full of andouille sausage and authentic. I had the fried shrimp basket and the shrimp were freakin' awesome. I also had the the spicy mahi tenders. They were chunks of mahi mahi breaded and cooked like chicken tenders with a buffalo dipping sauce. Personally I would have liked them better if they had been... More

Found Kenny D's by accident, but it won't be one during our next vacation in Destin. My Blackened Grouper sandwich was fantastic! Just the right seasoning and flavor. And my wife thoroughly enjoyed the Peel & Eat Shrimp, as well as her cup of Gumbo. Not sure, but the chef may use a little BBQ sauce in his dark, mahogany... More

Their fish tacos are to die for. This is a very low key beach friendly spot. This is a little taste of New Orleans right across from the beach.

Just like the title says, nothing fancy. However, our food great! We ordered Oysters Rockefeller and Oysters Parmesan as well as 2 orders of Zydeco Shrimp. The oysters were delicious! I would definitely recommend them to anyone, even if you aren't a huge oyster lover. We started off with only 1 order of the Zydeco shrimp, but after we took... More

We did not have a great experience with this place, It took 10 minutes to get some water, another 10 minutes for the waiter to take our order and we waited another 20 minutes for our food which never arrived. We eventually walk out. I don't know how the food tastes, but the service was beyond terrible.
