Surf & Surf was great!

Since we were staying within walking distance, we decided to call and order to go and pick it up. Kenny D's had it waiting for me when I walked it and was very friendly. The fish and shrimp were delightful and I'm sure we'll be back.

Have been passing this establishment for years and often wanted to check it out. Finally went in just to check the menu and look the place over. Ended up ordering the "Captain's Feast" from the House Specialties. It consisted of a cup-a-gumbo followed by a large platter of shrimp, oysters, white fish, hush-puppies and fries. It was a large meal... More

Our annual trips to Destin always start out with a trip to Kenny D's. Kids are given menus to color on while waiting for the food, but the adults end up writing on the walls which are not covered with names and dates of the customers. Fast service and good food is always the big reason for this to be... More

Kenny D's offers a great menu with the Cajun influence. The portion sizes are fantastic. Try the fried dill pickles with a pitcher of beer at Happy Hour. My wife enjoyed the special Seafood dish of the house...prepared Cajun style...spicy and good. I enjoyed the Blacken Chicken over rice and served with mash potatoes and green beans...it is enough for... More

I love Cajun cooking, but my wife doesn't like spicy! This is the perfect place. You can get plenty of entrées that are not spicy at all.....like grilled or fried Mahi Mahi. The Gumbo is the best in the area! There are plenty of high end places making Gumbo around, but this little place (not quite a whole in the... More

First we went to Kenny's to watch an NFL game. The bar was closed as it was winter season and they close a little earlier but we knocked on the door and Cole let us in. We had some great shrimp and beer while watching the second half of a game. Based on Cole's recommendations, we came back the next... More

A favorite stop when we are in Destin. Great atmosphere, fantastic cajun food, reasonably priced. The kids love the crayon on the walls and always go back to check their mark.

Kenny D's is extremely casual, dining outdoors under the palm trees and hear the surf of the gulf. Day or night great seafood and Po Boys New Orleans Style. Nothing fancy picnic tables under the stars good food and drink.

Stopped after a day on the golf course. Just what was on order. Had the burger and my wife had the chicken sandwich. Was large and good. The beer was on happy hour so a little cheaper. Service was good. The prices were not bad for here. Would go again probably worth a try.Great location neat place.
