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

Eat here whenever we're in Destin. Staff is always good food always good. I miss the ambiance get the other restaurant had but they had no choice they were forced to move. Hope they keep the customers they had to make many new one.

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
