Surf and Turf was delicious!

We enjoyed a very large steak that was really tasty, grilled shrimp, garlic mashed potatoes, and green beans. Everything was delicious. Service was very good.

Arrived in Destin on Friday night. Selected this restaurant because it was next to our accommodations. Outstanding oysters on the half shell and chowder. It's Sunday and we are back for oyster po-boy and grilled Mahi - Mahi with creole sauce. Outstanding. And cold beer.

Hole in the wall that you have to look for to find, but well worth it. Beach atmosphere, with good service and great food. love the Fish Tacos and Grouper Sandwich. Staff acts like they really appreciate you being there.

We've been twice. First for beers and appetizers. Service was very good. Beers were great and we really liked the crab claws. Plenty and crispy. We thought that the hush puppies were over-done, though. Another time we ordered cheese burgers to-go. They were large and hand-formed, but they were really wet and really salty. Service was, again, very friendly and... More

Kenny D's might not look like a place you'd be likely to try on your own, but try it! It's very quirky and covered with graffiti! It's clean, friendly, and the fifties music was great. But the reason to come is the food! Everything I've tried has been really good! If you like Cajun food, I think you'll be glad... More

I would recommend this place to anyone passing through Destin. A local mentioned it to us and, after passing through for gumbo and seafood, it has become a new favorite of ours. Our server, Scott, was phenomenal and the food was relatively cheap for the area. Go there and you'll know what I mean. 5/5

Stopped in to have a few oysters on the halfshell and a beer. Never before have i been served oysters on the halfshell this small. Never. Average size was about the size of a quarter. Asked the young man serving, who by the way had zero personality, about the size. He replied it was the time of the year. Humbug.... More
