14 for dinner

The food is pretty good in this place, which is located adjacent to our condo. However, 13 and a high chair were all crammed into 2 small booths. It was not acceptable.

So glad we stopped and ate here!!! I had the fish tacos (Excellent) My hubby had the red beans and rice and said they were some of the best he has ever had. Our boys got the grilled maui maui and shrimp dinner and loved it and the other one said it was a great cheeseburger. WE will be back... More

Huge disappointment. Bland seafood and son had a burger that was bland. How do you mess up a burger? French fries were good.

The gumbo is the best we've ever had and only place that actually has any spice to it from anywhere we've tried in the area. The fried oysters and grouper are amazing. This is only place I've ate oysters that I've never got one with that nasty green goo inside. Therefore, it's the only place I eat them. Not sure... More

We have eaten here before on other trips to Destin. This time we stayed at a condo just down the street. We could walk there! Great oysters on the half shell. Best fried crab claws in Destin. They are large and fried just right. Fried Grouper was good too. We had a group of 5 so we all tried different... More

Not much different from any other seafood dive. The hushpuppies were good. Most everything is fried.

Coming back from deep sea fishing we were hungry, dehydrated and tired. All we wanted was to eat and go home. We ordered the shrimp po boy which was exactly right for my appetite and the burger. Juicy grilled burger cooked just right. We left there satisfied and happy.

Best place on scenic 98!! Best grilled Mahi Mahi. Best crispy french fries. Best key lime pie. Good fried grouper sandwich. Atmosphere needs a clean up. Friendly.
