A Fun Place at the Beach!

Whenever we're in the Destin area, we try to work in a visit to Kenny D's. It's a fun, retro, beach diner--very casual atmosphere with consistently good food. The fried grouper sandwich is one of the best we've ever had. Our server was very friendly and made sure we were happy with our... read more

Found this place by pure accident. Cold beer, great food and felt like a local in minutes! Jenny is AMAZING! Not to mention our new best friend! She is down to earth and loves what she does, taking pride in herself and Kenny and his family. I feel like I know Mrs. Gracie (chef) even though we have not actually... More

We had a group of ten and stopped in to have a beer while we waited for our beach house to be ready. Our server was Jenny and she provided great service. Food was awesome and we needed up staying for two hours. We hung out on the deck and drank plenty of beer. We will be back!

Kenny D's was recommended by a friend so we made a late evening visit to check it out. Service was friendly but seating was slow. Gumbo was too thick and had a flavor resembling chili. I had the shrimp special (fried, grilled and boiled). All delicious. I would come back again.

We were staying in the timeshare next door and just got in late and was hungry. The staff recommended Kennys so we went over. From the outside there is writting all over everything. it looked like a graffiti artist had hit the place over night. We went inside. The interior was ok, the staff was friendly and helpful. we ordered... More

We were two groups wanting to set together. Each group had a coupon & they wouldn't honor both even though they were seperate bills. Chicken fingers were good as was the hush puppies.

First, let me say that my comments are based on a single visit and only one dish. My wife and I had read a couple of reviews that were very positive about the gumbo here and being "gumbo connoisseurs" we tracked the restaurant down and and ordered two bowls. The roux was very thick but almost like pasta sauce and... More
