AMAZING food. .. We were within walking distance and walked here our last night. Must try the shrimp creole and oysters and cold beer. So much more relaxing that the commercial go to places! Nice people

I don't know if there's a new cook since I was there, but everything that meal was disgusting...including the lady changing her babys diaper...on the table! Never had garbage gumbo before.

Stopped in for lunch with my son and his fiance....I ordered oysters on the half shell which were really good....home made red sauce was excellent. My son chose the oyster chowder bowl and his fiance opted for a cheeseburger with fries. All very good and the atmosphere was really casual and laid back. I would definitely recommend Kenny D's if...

My wife and stopped in on a Thursday evening about 7:30. It wasn't busy, but the hostess was no where to be found and a waiter seated us. This started what was, at best, a VERY mediocre experience. The high point was the fried mushrooms. Not the huge ones, covered heavily in better, you usually get. These were small, lightly... More

This is a Cajun food restaurant and has really good gumbo and fried oysters. They have Cajun music playing and it's decorated with new Orleans pictures. We loved this little restaurant and will return on our next visit.

A small out of the way place located at the eastern part of Destin, Fl, on Scenic Hwy-98 about a half mile south of Hwy-98. Not a fancy place but worth the trip to try them out.

We waited for 20 minutes for a waitress to even come and take our order. The hostess seated a tableful of people and we still didn't get waited on. She watched us as we walked out the door ~ knowing we had not been served and did not say one word. Ridiculous lack of service. Must not care about their... More

My water tasted like fruit punch or lemonade was mixed in it. I ordered the fish tacos and they were a greasy mess served with fries with wilted lettuce. Our bill was $60 to boot. If you just want a beer, this place would be fine, but if you're looking for a delicious dinner, keep going and find another place.

At first looks, Kenny D's doesn't have the view that some of the other locations have....but... If you like Cajun and seafood, this is the place. Met Kenny... a really likable guy. His waiters and prompt and do a great job.Emma treat us like family. The Crawfish Etoufee is top shelf as was the Shrimp Zydeco is to die for.... More
