This is the second year back and the food was just not as good as the year before. We had a server that just did not seem to know what to do when asked for a fork and knife. We enjoyed it so much last year just was not the same this time

Kenny D;s is on old 98 and you have to be looking for it to find it. You can bring your own wine. Indoor and outdoor dining. Good service. The hamburger was the best I have had in awhile. Perfectly seasoned. For a casual dining experience- go here.

Make sure to get the fried shrimp! Everything on the menu is fresh, and/or shipped from NOLA. I stayed in the Destin area for 4 days, and went twice...I didn't want to make a mistake and try another.

My friend is gluten free and she asked for a corn tortilla instead of a flour tortilla in a dish. Before he even offered it he tested in the kitchen to make sure it was up to par. Excellent Service!!!! All the food was great and service even better. We will be back!

Blink and you will miss this place--it is not much to look at, but it's the kind of seafood shack that I really love. Locals seem to dig the place, too. I knew I was going to love it when I walked in and saw all the mardi gras paraphernalia and Who Dat signs and smelled the great cooking. We... More

The food is AWESOME - lots of Cajun items like fish couvillion, etouffe & red beans & rice w/andouille sausage. Seafood, steaks, salads & pastas...there was something for all of us & it was all delicious! My son loved the Mahi tenders w/the buffalo sauce! I was told Mrs. Gracie, the head chef, makes all her sauces from scratch &... More

Walking distance from the beach, fast service, friendly staff, great environment. I had the Cajun shrimp & hush puppies and it was delicious. Highly recommend!

Ironic that Kenny D's is right on scenic HWY 98 but at the same time is"off the beaten path". Not a lot of folks know about Kenny D's or give it a go. that is their mistake. Both times we have visited Kenny's we have gone away knowing this is going to always be on our list of places to... More

Always good food and service. We tried to sit outside and enjoy the view of the gulf, but the insects were out that particular day. Dined inside and it was cool and clean and nice. Service is great. Good variety of seafood and American dishes. This is a favorite place of ours. Love the appetizers.
