“Good atmosphere & delicious food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

This restaurant has a very funky yet intimate atmosphere. Their menu has a good variety and their portions are pretty moderate. It can get pricey, but the food does not disappoint. Try their fried green tomatoes! Very, very good.

“Great Food in Funky & Fun Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Erin and I visited Graffiti with our two teens during a family vacation to Destin. It is not a traditional "beach" town restaurant (which is one of the reasons we selected it). Located in a small strip mall directly on Hwy 98 (across the street from high rise condos), it would be easy to drive by without seeing it...but don't miss it! From the moment you try to enter in one door before being directed to another door, the funkiness doesn't stop. The place is dark and decorated with some really cool artwork (all of which is for sale). Colored lights are strung through-out the restaurant to add to the funky feeling. The menu is diverse, the beer and wine list has something for everyone (not really expected in this environment). We started with Fried Green Tomatoes and Caprese Salad. Both were excellent, but the Fried Green Tomatoes were the table favorite, even for Lauren and me (neither of us are big tomato lovers). For dinner, Erin had the Angel Hair Mediterranean pasta, which she absolutely loved. Lauren went with cedar plant Salmon with Wild Mushroom Risotto (excellent according to Lauren), AJ had Fettuccine Alfredo with Scallops (he thoroughly enjoyed it) and I had the Fresh Gulf Mahi-Mahi Beurre Blanc (blackened) which was fantastic! For dessert, we split a Chocolate lava cake and a generous slice of Key Lime Pie. The Chocolate Lava cake was the table's choice as the key lime pie was good, but was more sweet than tangy. The service we received from Bill was outstanding. From the moment he seated us to the time we left, he was attentive and helpful without being "in your face". Our overall experience was very good and we recommend Graffiti.

“Very Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

The food was very good. The Boil was outstanding and the salmon was very good. The bolognise was also good. The fried green tomatoes are a must try! The only thing keeping it from being excellent was that it took a very long time to get the food.

“Great vibe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Funky atmosphere. Enjoyed looking at the artwork. Unique dishes, a bit pricey, but worth it. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We can't wait to visit again next time we are in town.

“Fun Restaurant !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Good food and service for our large family group and little ones. Kids menu is limited but worked. Was unaware and not advised that kids eat free from kids menu before 7...we were charged for all their meals, so maybe good to ask. Adults shared calamari and fried green tomatoes as starters, which were delicious. Agree with prior poster on strange music choices for a "blues" restaurant. Some pastas were really good while a couple were pretty bland. Not sure we would go back!
