In spite of some of the negative reviews we've seen on Trip Advisor, my wife and I decided to stop by for lunch this Monday at noon. We were GLAD we did. We were seated promptly; not full today, anyway. We ordered grilled tilapia, smashed redskin potatoes and mixed vegetables. The order arrived in quick time by our server Christopher... More

We were a weeknight (Monday) couple for dinner and the lobby was profoundly "fishy" so we asked to sit outside. The smell, according to the hostess was due to it being the delivery day. No big deal, just smelled more like a fish market than a restaurant. Service was polite but not particularly speedy or experienced. Unusual delay in bar... More

Despite the negative reviews that I read on Trip Advisor, we decided to give Mitchell's Fish Market our own personal review (partly due to recommendations from some local people we met). We made reservations (weren't required) for Wednesday evening. We were seated promptly and welcomed appropriately. While this appears to be a pretty upscale restaurant, we came in shorts and...

We tried to have happy hour and dinner at this restaurant and our waiter practically refused to serve us. We were seated in the bar and a table that sat outside after us was served two rounds of drinks before we were even greeted. We were finally able to order our drinks and couldn't believe what we were served. Our... More

We visit Sandestin every year and have wanted to try Mitchell's since it opened. Finally had dinner here ... What a disappointment. Strike 1: Tried to make reservations through the restaurant site. The app didn't work, so I called and was greeted by an uninterested employee, esp when I mentioned the reservation app not working. Got reservations and went anyway.... More

We waited for 20 minutes to be seated and the restaurant wasn't busy at all! We had a party of 10 people and they couldn't seat us together. Our waiter avoided us the entire time. It took him 30 minutes to get us drinks and a tea. They were out of gulf fish but yet had all other fish from... More

I thought I wanted seafood but the chicken parmigiana on the menu was calling to me. It was the right decision. The chicken was crispy on the outside but tender and moist on the inside. The tomato sauce was thick and nicely flavored. In what I thought was an odd presentation, the tomato sauce (a chunky paste, actually) was served... More

Adding to the ongoing search for foodie destinations in places that we frequent, Mitchell's Fish Market was next up on the list. We made reservations as a precationary measure as this was to be a fine dining experience and we had no idea what kind of crowd to expect. As it were, on this Wednesday evening, there was no crowd.... More

My husband and I visit Destin often but had not tried Mitchell's. We ate on the patio. My husband had sea bass with rice and spinach, he loved. I am not much of a meat eater, I had grilled vegetables and mashed potatoes. Loved this. We will be back.
