I've eaten here numerous times and will return. Food is good and staff is friendly. High Tide has been here for years. Cool atmosphere. However there is no lunch menu and you'll pay dinner prices for lunch. If you order the fish sandwich then that's what you get. A fillet of fish and a bun. Has side of tomato and... More

We have been going to the Destin area for over 35 years and the High Tide was one of the first restaurants we visited that many years ago. It still hasn't changed after all these years. They still serve the best gumbo in the area and the oysters on the half shell are simply amazing - always fresh and served... More

Want a casual stop for seafood then this is a good place.Friendly staff with good service.The atmosphere is not fancy so no need to dress up..Good place for simply cooked sea food.

Our waittress was very rude and unfriendly. While this in itself already put a damper on our dinner, the dinner itself wasnt very good either. Steak was fatty and greasy, but alright, it is a seafood restaurant. But unfortunately the seafood platter ('seafood delight') wasnt very delightful either. Such a shame to have waisted our one dinner in Ft Walton... More

A recent lunch with relatives from out of town was a disaster: over an hour to get our food, though the place was not at all full; and poor quality and preparation when it arrived. Too bad if this is the new norm as High Tide has been a reliable place for decades. We're told the place has changed hands... More

When you see a lot of locals eating here you know you have chosen a good restaurant. The five of us were seated within 5 minutes of arrival on a busy Friday evening and a server was prompt to our table for orders. The dinner meals were sized appropriately for the value (price) and the quality excellent. We had previously... More

This restaurant has been in Fort Walton for years. It does not look like much on the outside but inside the food, service, and atmosphere are excellent. It is a local restaurant with wonderful gulf coast seafood. Oysters on the half shell, shrimp, fish sandwiches and gumbo. Also, has hamburgers and chicken sandwiches for land lovers. A must stop if... More
