The food was excellent! The service great! I had shrimp and my son had the chicken breast! I also had the key lime pie for dessert! The total bill was 29 dollars and some change! Great place to eat!

I've seen the light and it is at the Lighthouse Restaurant in Destin, Florida. It is one of the few places in Destin where you can get an excellent meal and not pay a fortune. No, the view is not the greatest, it's in a shopping center, but the food is excellent and the prices are nearly unbeatable. I had... More

What an enjoyable evening! We were there for wacky wine Wednesday and got wine for $2.99 a glass. That's a sweet deal! Plus, our waitress, Sam, was terrific and so much fun! The cheese grits were great and the grilled amberjack was really good, except a little too salty for me. The homemade bread came to our table warm and... More

We loved the old Lighthouse, going at least 2 times a week when we visit Destin. The food was great but they really need to get some help in decoration and layout. The old place felt like you were eating in a great place, with character all around. PLEASE address this. Real plants, not set in plastic black buckets, drapes... More

Been there at the "old" place and their "new" place many times. Always good food, good service, and will always go back! Last time there took a party of eight and EVERYONE was exceptionally happy with EVERYTHING! Love it.

My daughter (Margaret) and I ALWAYS eat every night we are in Destin at The Lighthouse. My daughter ALWAYS get the 2 lobster tails. Ms. Mary and her husband (the cook) are great people who get to know and genuinely care for their customers. It's a must stop when you are in the Destin area!

Last year we visited the Lighthouse and loved it. When we returned to Destin this year, the Light house had changed locations. Not only has the location changed but so has the quality of the food. The atmosphere was barn like, with no atmosphere. The food was average at best. Service was good but it was obvious the waitress was... More

This was our first time at the restaurant and we were well pleased. We both had different seafood meals and they were excellent. They had a good selection on their menu. Our service was excellent. The prices were very reasonable. Will be going back when we are in town.

First time visit in their new location. Now located near Old Time Pottery in a small strip mall. Prices are reasonable and our waitress was very nice. They have nightly specials plus a variety of meat and seafood entrees. We ordered the broiled shrimp and scallops and they were very good. Nice experience that was not too expensive.
