Great food!

We had a good experience with the ambience, service and food. We ordered the baked oysters, clams and the triple play with a variety of seafood. The kids enjoyed their food as well. Everything was fresh and cooked just right with a perfect balance of flavors.

On a recent visit, my daughter and I shared the lobster steamer for two. It came packed with huge Royal Red shrimp, both Snow crab clusters and King crab legs, two large lobster tails, new potatoes and corn. All of the food was hot and fresh, with a very mild seasoning. Dinner included a family-style salad. Beware if you are... More

We always eat here when we are near Fort Walton,,,, Red Snapper was out of this world. Baked oysters were delicious and very different.

We went on a Saturday night in April and were seated quickly, which was a surprise. The food and service was excellent! There was no cool view and the room was a bit dark and music a bit too loud but everything else made up for these shortcomings...you don't go there for the atmosphere. The parking was a bit tricky...

I try to make a dinner at Old Bay at least once every time I come to the area either for work or fun. You are going to get great heaping heavily seasoned steamed seafood. If you don't like that, go somewhere else for dinner. This trip in Destin for wine festival with seven women. We got seated quickly despite... More

The food was amazing. We had a horrible server who ignored us most of the meal, took forever to bring drinks, and was overall rude. It basically ruined the experience for us. Oh well. Won't be returning.

The steamer with shrimp and crab legs is good but be prepared to work hard to eat it before it gets cold. I would pay extra to have them make it ready to eat and I would have enjoyed it more. Great service though. A bit pricey for all the work.

We went Thursday 4/9 with the softball team (we were there from KY for a tourney) - not only was the food outstanding, the service was great. There were 2 large groups up on the 2nd floor but the service was still great, they really hustled and took care of everyone. My hubby got the raw oysters and said they... More

Took the family here. They did a good job. It was busy but the service was still good and the food came to the table in a reasonable time frame. The kids enjoyed the BBQ ribs. My wife and I had the snow crab steamers which were excellent. The flavor was great and I thought for the price it was... More

We have been eating here for over 15 yrs and never had a bad meal. It is a must place to eat in the Destin/ Ft Walton area
