They don't take American Express!

While on business recently in Santa Rosa we had a nice dinner at the Vue. We sat outside by the ocean for our meal. The food choices are overall very creative but we found pricing on the high side for this area. We noted the menu states that 2 for ones are available before 6pm but arriving at 7:30 meant... More

Been coming to Destin every year for many years, but this was our first time visiting Vue on 30A. The scenery from a wall of windows overlooking the gulf is spectacular. Keith, provided expert guidance (and a little humor) while we navigated the menu and wine list. Our choices of caprese salad, some of the best scallops we've ever had,... More

From the moment I walked into the restaurant I was so excited about the incredible view. They sat us by the window where we could look out over the beach. All of the waitstaff were incredibly friendly, and gave us excellent service. Our server was Matt, and he was extremely attentive, and very familiar with the dishes they served. I... More

30A has so many good restaurants, but we couldn't resist going to the Vue three times during our vacation. The meals were fresh and plentiful. We started with the lobster and venison wrapped in bacon. Who can go wrong with bacon? It did not disappoint. Our table ordered the scallops which were a great size and melted in your mouth....

Ate at the Vue for the first time last night. It is a lovely restaurant, atmosphere and as the name implies...has a great view. Started with the lobster trilogy appetizer and loved it (although the lobster wonton could have used more lobster). I had the Chef's choice "catch of the day" which was snapper and it was outstanding, great fresh... More

I took my girlfriend while we were on vacation. It was a bit pricey, but afterwards we both agreed it was worth it. The service and view there both impressed us the most.

My wife and I went to the Vue on 30A for our anniversary, and we were not disappointed. The view of the gulf is spectacular, as is the food and the service. It is a higher end restaurants, so expect to pay a bit more. Appetizers are around $10-$20, salads about $10-15, meals are in the low to mid $30... More
