I went because of a family member told us about it. First the place is on the dirty side. Second, the service was one of the worst experiences ever. Lasty, the food was ok. There is so much better good in destin.

I had one of their signature dish's Gracie's Shrimp Creole and it was just okay to me. It might have been because I was hot and the kids were crazy from the car trip there. The shrimp were excellent though and everyone liked their food. The atmosphere is very kid friendly, the food isn't overly expensive, and the service was... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our condo and we thought we'd give it a try. Big mistake. I ordered the surf and surf with mahi-mahi fish and fried shrimp. It was bland and the hush puppies were hard and tasted like they had been sitting out all day. Then the manager came out and asked all the other... More

Our family of five ordered calamari and fried crab claws for appetizers. Among the adults, we shared the Double Shuck Oysters and the Captain's Feast, while my older son got the pasta with alfredo sauce and my younger one ordered from the kid's menu. We liked all the fried seafood, but most especially the oysters, clam strips and crab claws.... More

We ordered to go from here our first night in Destin. First- you couldn't get through over the phone to call in, second-the prices were different than those listed on the website, and third- we watched as a waiter grabbed a couple fries out of our to go box and chow down. He saw that we saw and came over... More

My husband and I are from Texas and eat cajun often with the number or NO residents in Texas post-Katrina. We were so pleasantly surprised by this place. It was delicious and spicy! Just the way we like it! The oysters with garlic parmesan were so delicious.... We also got the big fried seafood sampler to share. It was all... More

We were excited! It looked like a cool local eatery... Hmm? Everything has a dash or 10 of sugar?!!?! I was set for the seafood gumbo... Um, it had BEEF in it?!!? WHAT!! And... On a side note...
