While vacations with another couple we ate at Lighthouse. As a foursome, we each had a different entree, ranging from seafood to steak. All were delighted with their meal. The server was very focused on our needs without the hovering feel you get in some places. Sam, our server was very outgoing and fun to interact with. Pleasant time had... More

We never miss a stop to this old Destin favorite restaurant when we are in town. Since our last visit they moved up the street a bit. It was a little hard to find due to wrong directions that search engines listed – but we found it. It is a little smaller in size but they have a great outdoor... More

We eat early and it was not crowded nor was it noisey with plently of room between tabvles. The menu had a great variety.... More

We were so pleased with the food and service when we visited a year ago we went back in August of 2014. We had a variety of entrees and everything was prepared well. The Talipia was not very good but the catfish, Shrimp, and cod was excellent. Service was outstanding! Will return again when visiting the area. Prices are reasonable.... More

We always make at least one if not 2 trips to The Lighthouse Restaurant when visiting Destin. Food is always consistently good and service is great. We started with the crab claws, which were awesome. Then everyone ordered something different. There was salmon with lemon dill sauce, scallops, shrimp and grits, tilapia with crab dressing and grilled salmon. As a... More

Our food and service was both outstanding. The prices are very reasonable and the food was served exactly to my liking.....fresh and hot! Our group ordered a wide variety from tuna to burgers and everyone was satisfied. Our server was very polite and our glasses were always full. We will definitely be back soon!

We live locally and always enjoyed going to the old Lighthouse. the new restaurant lacks character and feels more like a open beer hall that is brightly lit and lacks the cozy, upscale feeling of the old place. The food is still excellent, especially the tuna steak, and offers good value but the atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired... More
