We have heard from friends who have a condo in Destin that we couldn't go wrong by trying this restaurant. We had 5:15 reservations at a nearby restaurant but were early (4:30-4:45) so we decided to drive by and look at Louisiana Lagniappe. We weren't beyond canceling reservations and eating there if we decided to do so. The "guard" refused... More

I wasn't expecting a lot given that this restaurant is buried in a not terribly luxurious resort. But the restaurant was more upscale than I expected. Food was good. The restaurant was a little noisy (lots of people waiting for tables, lots of kids.) I ate at the bar. The 2 bartenders were slammed, but trying to do the best... More

We showed up on a whim, Friday night about 7pm and we're seated immediately on the patio overlooking a harbor at sunset. Hushpuppies were brought out before our waitress even shown up! We ordered the special (grouper specially prepared), blackened redfish, soft shell crab and oysters lagniappe. Each dish was prepared exquisitely and left us completely satisfied. Service was phenomenal... More

If three green discs is "average," but four green discs is "very good," I'd have to go with 3 1/4 discs as "above average," but I'd have to stop short of "very good." Overall, the food was well prepared, and the service was just right (thank you Sheri!). But the dishes lacked finesse, the wine list is benign, and, sadly,... More

Louisiana Lagniappe was the perfect spot for a Friday night date with my husband. We got there before 7pm and were seated on the patio with no wait, but the restaurant did become very packed shortly after. This is the first place in Florida we have been where people dressed up. We both got mixed drinks and they were the... More

Wow!!! First of all the service is excellent! There are 2 servers per table, one of which makes sure drinks are always full. Second, that was one of the best meals I have had in a long time!! Everyone at our table could not stop talking about how delicious everything was! We will absolutely be visiting again on our next... More

Our party of six adults enjoyed our first visit to Louisiana Lagniappe very much! The seafood was very fresh and cooked perfectly ! The bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp were amazing! Huge portions even big eaters cannot finish! We will be back!
