We had not been there since 2019 because they were on limited hours because of the virus. The food quality was a good as ever and the service superb. Our waitress was Jamie who did a fabulous job of getting the food out even though...they were short-handed. She also managed to take time to be friendly with her customers which made the trip even better. We keep going back for the food and service.More

On our way home from Destin, we found the best, freshest seafood for lunch! Great service as well! If you like locally sourced and family-owned restaurants, you will not be disappointed!

Had lunch of fried flounder and bronzed (cross between blackened and grilled) shrimp. Outstanding. Must try the gouda cheese grits!

Wowza! Everything was awesome! From being seated by sweet Gracie, to leaving with a very content tummy! Gracie made sure we had everything we needed and was very attentive. Ginger Lime Salmon—superb! Key lime — to die for! Husband enjoyed his very plentiful combo fried...platter with scallops and shrimp. Huge shrimp! This is not a hole in the wall. This is a very clean, quaint and nicely decorated restaurant. We couldn’t take advantage of the fresh market side, but it looked great.More

We were on our way to Destin ready for a seafood dinner but we were hungry now. Looked up local seafood restaurants and found this one. We were not disappointed. I had the shrimp dinner and my husband had grilled Mahi. We got the French...fries for a side and they were great. There were a lot of locals eating there.More

Allison was a very attentive waitress. She made sure we had any extras we needed. The food was amazing, and we will definitely return.

This restaurant really has the best seafood and friendliest service in Crestview. It’s always our top pick and we go several times a month. Kennedy, best server ever, always treats us like royalty and the food is always cooked to perfection.

We eat at Emerald Isle Seafood at least once a week. Kennedy is always so friendly and helpful. She knows exactly what we want and can always recommend something when we want to try something else.
