good food, but LONG wait time and small portions

The food is great, but be prepared to wait for it! There was a 1 hour 45 minute wait when we went. The service is good as well, but the portions are smaller than at the Acme in New Orleans.

Acme Oyster house is always a family favorite for chargrilled oysters. Nobody makes them like Acme..Since we are La natives we travel to New Orleans often and dine at the Original Acme, but the one in Destin is just as good for the Chargrilled ones

Everything on the menu is great...you can not go wrong. Make sure you order the chargrilled oysters. You may make it your meal. It makes you think you are in Louisiana. They have great customer service too. Two Thumbs up

We have been here in Destin for a few days. Someone told us that this was their favorite restaurant, so we decided to give it a try. HOLEY SMOKES. This was a great find. The grilled Oysters were simply amazing. My kids wanted to order another dozen before our actual entrees arrived. I ordered the soft shell crab. I must... More

Delicious omg. You must try them. Friendly staff. It's a busy place so either go a little early to beat the crowd or put your name in and walk around the shops till your tables ready.

Atmosphere OK. But they certainly did not live up to our expectations. Fried oyster were very good but service and all else overpriced and over cooked. Loud. Lousy food. Don't do it.

You pay to be in that area, literally. They charge you a fee for dining there. Crab claw appetizer had about 14 average size claws on it for $11. (The sweet potato fries were good.) My husband's sandwich had less than 5 oz. of fish for $20.00. Other places away from Sandestin have better food and give you more bang... More

My wife and I ate here last year and were very well pleased with the service and food. If you arrive before six pm during the busy season you can get a table without waiting.

We were excited when we saw this restaurant. We had been to the ones in NO as well as the one in Gulf Shores and were looking forward to some good poboys and boo fries. Well the boo fries (french fries with brown gravy and cheese) came out and it maybe had 20 fries on it. Plenty for one person,... More
