Great Grouper Sandwich

We visit Kenny D's every time we are in Destin. I always have the blackened grouper sandwich and it's very good. The red beans and rice are very good too. The prices are reasonable.

We had the fried mushrooms for an appetizer. They were bland and tasteless. For our entrée we both had the fried grouper basket. The fish tasted frozen, the batter had no spice at all. We won't be back. Disappointing because the place we stay is super close to Kenny D's.

Of course, this was just a walk across the parking lot from where we were staying. :) Super atmosphere and food. Great service.

We got in late afternoon and wanted a quick bite before hitting the beach. My wife had the blackened chicken and I had the blackened Mahi Mahi. Both were excellent. The fried cheese and Cajun popcorn shrimp we took home as a snack were awesome. The Cajun seasoning in his buffalo sauce was AMAZING!!!!!

We rented some bikes and rode up and down Scenic hwy. Got hungry and stopped in. Had a cold pitcher of bear and burgers. They were very good. Loved that were home made and thick. Kinda messy but delicious. Would go back to try other items on menu.

The casual atmosphere was nice and the service was prompt and friendly. We visited Kenny D's more than once this visit due to the Oysters Rockefeller. Walking distance from the condo was a plus++ as well.

Waitress suggested we get the basket because you get a lot and my husband and I wanted to share I bet there was 40 claws at only $17.99 with... More

We ate lunch at Kenny D's today. We arrived in Destin before our room was ready and stumbled across Kenny D's by accident. Man are we glad we did! The service was great and the food was even better! Our server, Jen, was GREAT! She had a great personality and was really helpful. I had the Grouper and my wife... More
