Harbor Docks has tables by the water, which was relaxing; however, the food was not special enough for a return visit. We were there for lunch. My daughter ordered sushi, which she seemed to enjoy. My husband had the pork fried rice which was really disgusting. It smelled and tasted fishy, indicating it had been cooked in oil or a... More

This is our "go to" restaurant when in Destin. We've taken family n friends there for lunches n dinners n have never been embarrassed or disappointed by the food or service. We had catch of the day last night. Grouper was fresh, hot and more than an adequate portion. We also had the white chocolate bread pudding which also a... More

Harbor Docks is one of the few local places that catches their own seafood and has a tradition of quality food. That was not our experience today. We visited Harbor Docks in the 'tween' time. After lunch, before dinner 4-5 pm. Menu limited to half price appetizers, reduced sushi, and happy hour drinks. Ordered seafood gumbo (Lukewarm with mystery meat)... More

Terrific restaurant and you can tell by the amount of locals that frequent it. The location is perfect, right on the harbor with a beautiful view. The fish is extremely fresh, with the specials caught that day. Our meal was absolutely great,. I had their grouper and was it fresh and delicious. There is a wide selection of sides and... More

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
