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

This place has the absolute best oysters around as well as the greatest smoked tuna dip ever! I could eat it all day everyday!

This place has been around forever, but this was my first visit as I met a few friends for a weekday lunch. For the price (under $20 including tip) I had a great lunch plate including a Trigger Fish sandwich, french fries, and coleslaw. I also shared an appetizer of a dozen raw oysters. The food was delicious. The waitress... More

We had passed this place up last year when we were down here, because there are so many places to eat, but we got to it this year, and I'm glad we did -- first of all, the decor - the atmosphere - is outstanding. Lots of fishing and seafaring decorations on the wall, and it just looks like a... More

Looking to try some local seafood, I ordered fried soft shell crab. The waitress and another staff member confirmed that I could consume the entire crab, since it's exoskeleton and "crunchy bits" had been removed. While the most obvious parts had in fact been removed, each bite had a certain crunch to it. I kept to eating, trying to ignore... More

We sat at the oyster bar, and after being ignored for half and hour, left. We did receive some good oysters but choose to eat the rest of our meal elsewhere. Local couples around us were served but we were treated with indifference. Happy to pay and tip well where there is service, but arrogance international.

My sister and I just wanted to eat as many oysters as we could on this brief vacation, so we found this place on our last night. We each had a dozen on the half shell and they were excellent! Our server was a very downhome woman who gave us great service. It's the slow time of year, so there... More
