Sit at the Bar and get the freshest oysters. You can watch them being shucked while enjoying a drink.

Walking into the High Tide Lounge is like walking into a friends home. There are two sections and the one to the left is a little quieter. It is certainly a good place to hear what is happening in town. If you like sports, you will love the college memorabilia around the bar.The bar associates and waiters are all very... More

Nice, friendly atmosphere but the food leaves a lot to be desired. Overcooked shrimp and way too much coating on the deep fried foods.

We stopped in for a dinner late one evening and got immediate seating and our order was taken quickly. The selection on the menu is good and the food is great. Prices are reasonable for what you get. A nice place

I had a mahi mahi sandwich you could have rung the grease out of, the place is dirty look at ceiling tiles dusty grease on vents. They seemed to thank you for coming in and asked you to come back. If they did better food and cleaned up a bit maybe. When you in the middle of a tourist destination... More

I've had the good fortune of being on a work assignment in Ft. Walton Beach for the last few months and after having explored many of the local restaurants have a short list of favorites that my wife and I visit "routinely". High Tides is one, in fact THE one when we want good seafood without needing to spend a... More

One of our favorite fish is Trigger Fish. Hard to find in Destin, it is on the menu at High Tide. It is a locals restaurant and always very busy when we visit. It is busy because it is good food, reasonably priced with great service. It has been there for over 30 years, to survive that long it needs... More

Just had lunch at High Tide Oyster Bar and had an excellent meal with great service from "Brandy" our server. I had never tried triggerfish before but went with it on Brandy's (and other Tripadvisor) recommendations and am I glad I did. My sandwich was awesome, very mild almost sweet taste and came with more fries than I could eat... More
