The restaurant itself inside had a very musty, old odor so we asked to sit outside. Our food was mediocre. One friend had fried shrimp, one had sushi and I had grouper with parmesan. We had read such fabulous reviews and expected our food to be delicious. This was our first and last visit.

This is a No-Frills, well-established, 'locals' restaurant on the Harbor in Destin that has some of the best sushi around. Definitely a 'must go to' if visiting the area.

We sat at the sushi bar and it was a great experience. The Sushi Chef was very friendly and guided us to some delicious selections from the menu. Certainly some of the best we've eaten. We enjoyed chatting with the chef and appreciated his kind spirit and positive attitude. The hostess was also very friendly as we entered and exited... More

This place is very laid back and relaxing with an awesome view. The drinks here are excellent and the food is good as well- they make a great combination. The service here is mostly great, unless you get a bad waitress that does not seem to care if you are happy and satisfied with your overall experience. This is a... More

This restaurant came highly recommended for its fresh fish, but there's more to a good meal than that. I ordered the sashimi, which was clearly a mistake. Yes, the catch was fresh and the cuts were good, but please don't put lemon directly next to the fish. If you are expecting the sushi or the sashimi to be in the... More

This place was so good years ago. First time was 1979. It is now mostly sushi....and my fish was terrible.

We have frequented Harbor Docks in the past....and let me say it's always been good. But this was an awkward visit to say the least. We arrived early (about 5:30) and were seated immediately. My daughter ordered sushi called the Screaming O...here's where it first begins to go downhill. The server delivers the sushi and makes a comment that the... More

I read the great reviews on this place and was excited to try it out. The fish was good but over seasoned rendering it very salty. I had the black grouper and my husband had the red snapper. The sides were ok but not fantastic. We really could have used some bread to soften the saltiness but it's not served... More

We had a nice meal here. I had snapper, which was the catch of the day. It was prepared simply and was probably the best snapper I have ever had. DH had the seafood platter with shrimp, oysters and grouper. He said his was also very good. Both of our portions were large. We had a table with a great... More
