This restaurant has it all! Great food, atmosphere, and views that just can be replicated or shown even in pictures. You just have to be here to experience it at sunset. Don't miss out!

Let me start by saying the food is actually good IF you can ever get to sit down and someone ever manages to come over to take your order. We've eaten there once and tried to dine there a second time. Sadly the service is still so pathetic we will now never try again. First time we literally sat at... More

Lots of various crab legs, oysters, mussels, clams, 2 lobsters & a mountain of shrimp are included steamed perfectly. More than enough for 2... More

When we make our annual visit to Destin, we always go to Poppy's Crazy Lobster for their famous "Steamed Seafood Bucket." One order of "Bucket" is enough for two adults. We live in northeast corner of Texas and fresh seafood is non existent, we always try to consume as much fresh seafood as we can during one week stay in... More

Chris (our server) tried to make the best of a bad situation. The restaurant was understaffed today (OCT 13th, 2013) and what was advised to be a wait time of 30 minutes for a table took 1 hour. One unlucky individual in our party ordered the BBQ shrimp and for 21 USD got 7 shrimp in a strange souce. Don't... More

We enjoyed an awesome dinner at Poppy's outside on the second floor balcony overlooking the bay. Our server, Garrett, was extremely knowledgeable of the offerings and provided outstanding service. This was a first time visit for the wives on this trip after hearing about the place from our golf-playing husbands. Truly a great evening and we will return.
