My family has been eating here on vacation for over 20 years. Sometimes we go twice in one week. The grouper almondine and grouper pontchartrain are exceptional! Great sunset views too!

Wonderful food and even better service. Meredith was an absolute delight and super knowledgeable about the menu. Great menu selections- I ordered filet and my husband ordered red fish. We were from out of town, and really enjoyed the night out. Nice patio area that over looked the harbor. We will go back next time we are in Destin.

I would like to say firstly the flavor is spot on with the main dishes. I would have given this a 5 star review with the following exceptions: The blackened redfish filet was about 1/10th of an inch thick. The result was a very crispy redfish. Flavor was great, but for around 36 dollars a very small portion of fish.... More

We take opportunity to dine at "lagniappe" several times a year. Usually when the tourist season diminishes and the tempo returns to the "fishing village" of old. Their specials, often dinner for two with bottle of wine are perfect for the after season visiting couple. Cuisine is comparable to the best in Destin. If you choose to dine there, you'll... More

I've been going to Destin now for 40+ years. A friend introduced me to this place about 8 years ago and we've gone just about every time we visit. We just returned from Destin and this was our end of vacation celebration dinner. WOW. I just cannot say enough good things about this place. IT's not just the food, it's... More

This place is kind of in a funky spot in a gated community. It felt a little weird. The food was OK. I guess my expectations were a little higher. The service was ok and the food was average. It's an old restaurant and probably needs a little updating. I just felt I was eating out with my grandparents.

Being from New Orleans, I really appreciate good cooking with some real flavor. We have been here a few times and they never disappoint. This last time we ordered the Louisiana Oysters and it came with house salad and hush puppies. It was delicious especially the salad. I always appreciate a yummy salad. We have sat inside and outside on... More

My husband and I ate dinner at Louisiana Lagniappe on a Thursday evening. We arrived around 5:15, no cost for parking and seated immediately. Chose covered patio for seating. Thoroughly enjoyed the family friendly atmosphere and the scenery. The hush puppies were good and provided a great snack. We both ordered the blackened redfish and were extremely pleased! Cooked and... More

In 1984, Louisiana Lagniappe was opened and established inside Sandpiper Cove condominiums in what was at one time the Sandpiper Cove Yacht Club. A loyal following was quickly established due, in no small part, to the quality of the food and the attention to detail of the service. In 1998 The Southern Restaurant Group took ownership of the restaurant with a commitment to maintain the same level of food quality and service. Since then, Louisiana Lagniappe has consistently served only the freshest seafood and steaks. Now open year round, Louisiana Lagniappe is the spot for a memorable dining experience on all levels. In 1999, a second Louisiana Lagniappe was opened in the San Roc Cay Shopping and Marina Complex in Orange Beach, Alabama. Offering the same fine Louisiana seafood with a Creole flair, the attire is casual, yet an upscale waterfront dining experience is provided for the entire family.
