Lives Up to the Hype!

We had heard about this place all week while in Destin and finally decided to stop in for lunch on a rainy Thursday. It was certainly worth all the hype! Our party of seven was seated in fairly short order and had a really nice waitress named Mary. Two members of our group had shepherd's pie... read more

I had a great meal and a wonderful Irish Red craft beer, followed by one of the best bread puddings I've ever had, with Bushmills sauce on top!

Much better food than most of our local tourist favs. Service friendly. Disappointing to never get in for dinner in a reasonable time but lunch works well.

We stopped here for Sunday brunch, which included Irish coffee and beignets. We ordered one 6 egg omelet and could not finish it between the two of us. BTW, for meat lovers, get the steak omelet. We've also eaten here for dinner and the Shepherd's Pie was so good I had to buy the cookbook just to have that recipe.

We've been here a couple of times with each experience being pretty different. Our first time, we went in the off-season for an early dinner and with our kids (2 years old and newborn). The baby slept the entire time and while it was okay with a toddler, we felt as though the environment (darker restaurant, close tables, noisy) wasn't... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and I cannot tell you how much I owe her for this. This meal was the best of our trip and the steak in the first place position for lifetime eating. Arrived here around 2:00 p.m. for a late lunch. Was immediately seated and asked for drink orders. I went for the James... More

I have eaten their several times and can't wait to go back. The food is fresh , plentiful and reasonably priced. The service is wonderful, the servers are proud of what they do. I can't understand why more restaurants don't copy their winning formula. Could eat their every day.
