Food was pretty good. The margarita was not the best. My granddaughter loved her corndog. It was within walking distance to our condo which was the main reason we tried it. And my husband love gumbo.

Hit town looking for a quick bite. I know better than to pick this place, but close to where we are staying. It didn't disappoint me. Same slow service and same average food. Must say the spinach dip was o.k. We had 2 appetizer's (waiting on the kids to hit town) and one was the spinach dip with chips (not... More

Decided to visit here on a Sunday afternoon, the place had only a handful of other diners, but the gentleman that showed us to our table acted like we were a bother. The appetizer we ordered as good but sadly could not make up for the lack of atmosphere and quality of service, maybe it was the young man and... More

With a little bit of reconstruction of the side bar, a little cleaning up, and some updating, this place could be awesome. The side bar could carry them. Food is already good. People were coming in to watch the games but nothing was keeping them here..all of these things would buy their liquor license..and then they would be turning people... More

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
