Did we mention the view?

No need to mention the view. It's been said. We had the lobster appetizer. Very nice. I had scallops over risotto. Scallops were cooked perfectly. I didn't care for the balsamic glaze but it was on the menu and I picked it. Risotto was well prepared. All the others enjoyed their meals as... read more

Three entrees were just OK. The lion fish was fantastic. Unfortunately the waiter was 1) inattentive 2) forgot to split checks 3) left our drinks sitting at the bar until another staff brought them over and 4) added an 18% to our bill. Fortunately I caught it and told the manager. 5% would have been generous.

Our dinner was ruined because several people were smoking near us. As non smokers this made it so we will never return. We were not the only family that complained. The food was ok, nothing to rush back to.

We really enjoyed our lunch experience * Great view. We initially sat outside but moved inside due to the wind. Great views from both spots. * Lunch menu was perfect. The prices were reasonable and the variety was great. * High quality food. I recommend the fish tacos or the lobster roll. * Friendly and efficient service * Indoor atmosphere... More

I have had lunches at The Vue. Windows face the beach and ocean within 100 yards. Food is made to order and tasty. Service is wonderful and servers want you to leave happy and satisfied. Coffee is very aromatic. Don't be intimidated by the chic environment.

The restaurant has a great energy the moment you enter. The decor is beautiful and compliments the view of the gulf. You are right on the beach giving an appreciation for the vastness of the gulf. An outside dining area provides a more casual space. The menu was creative (grilled watermelon and feta salad) yet offers great standards as well.... More

Everything was terrible including the service. You go to a place like this and pay that much money you expect it to be pretty good. Absolutely terrible. Save your time and money and go anywhere else!

Brunch was great, but the view was even better. Right on the beach and the blueberry muffins, yum!! Great service and good food.

We have been going to the Vue on 30-A for several years. It has been one of our top choices for lunch on a nice day. However, we discovered last fall, they had changed the menu. Chicken salad was no longer available. 👎. I ordered a hamburger which was very salty and peppery and on a pretzel bun which wasn't... More

Found this while driving to Destin last week. Great location but very average taste and overpriced. Looks like others have really enjoyed it so we were not the norm I guess. Wouldn't recommend it, there are better places with a view just as nice. Bathrooms were kind of dirty, usually the first turn-off for me.
