I read some good reviews on this place so we decided to give it a try. It's a bit off the beaten path, but has decent views. The hushpuppies that someone wraved about, tasted just like fried cornbread to me. The meals were ok, but we didn't walk away saying wow, let's go back. The menu warns about... read more

Food and service were outstanding. Four of us each ordered something different and everyone was very please with their meal. Highly recommended. Bit on the pricey side (we averaged about 40.00/person with no alcohol) but well worth it!

So many people went on and on about this old time favorite. We thought it stunk in there, the waitstaff was rude, and the food only average, the price way above average. Very disappointed.

The food and the atmosphere on the outside deck are well worth the visit. The inside of the restaurant has beautiful decor but the outside deck is my favorite! The food is excellent with a definite New Orleans flair. I have been to this restaurant several times and the food has been great each time. Definitely a must go in... More

The whole family ate during a week long stay and we all really enjoyed the food. Nice place and service although parking in the area is somewhat limited.

The sign says 30 years in business and the menu is just as old! The dishes are served with the same sides and taste like warmed up veggies. The seafood is very fresh and served very quickly. The house salad is the best in destin. Last 2 times there has been empty tables everywhere. I believe that is caused by... More

Stopped in for dinner on St Patty's Day. It was a bit windy and chilly tonight so we didn't sit on the deck. We had the Grouper Papillotte which came with a salad and hush puppies. Also a bottle of Chardonnay wine which paired well with the fish. It was all very delicious

We go here a few times each year we come down in the winter. They offer fine coces of Louisina style entrees, For two, including bottle Le of wine for 49$. This is during winter months to the end of February. The full price menu is reasonable and it's one of the better dining experiences in Destin.

I've been to many restaurants in Destin and all of them are excellent, but Louisiana Lagniappe is above and beyond excellent. This is now my favorite restaurant and will go here every chance I get. Instead of bringing out bread and butter they bring you a basket of fresh, steaming hot hush puppies. After talking to the locals they had... More

Being from Louisiana, but no longer living there, we are always on the lookout for good Louisiana food. Louisiana Lagniappe definitely fits the bill! Our group ordered steak, blackened scallops, and baked eggplant Parmesan. All were excellent! You can look out over the inlet/boat dock while you eat and, if you're lucky, you can see the dolphins playing. Very picturesque... More
