It's difficult to find a restaurant that isn't some sort of fried seafood shanty shack in Destin but we found Louisiana L and what a find it was. Beautiful restaurant - great ambiance, service and the food is amazing. They have outdoor dining on the canal that we thoroughly enjoyed. Stuffed mushrooms a must as an appetizer, the hush puppies...

Last night was a great new experience. I departed from the taste of beef and salmon (from Oregon )and tried Grouper. Stuffed Grouper with shrimp and crab. Heavenly !! The hush puppies were the best and the Hurricanes took me back to New Orleans. The views are terrific and the service friendly and prompt . One of the two best... More

Great food-grouper stuffed with shrimp and crab...hush puppies to die for....hurricane punch...white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake...stuffed! A little pricey, but a beautiful sunset and blue herons off the patio, not to mention great service and of course, the food made it more than worth it!

Our family travels to the Destin area yearly. This was my first time dining at this establishment, and it did not disappoint. Bob provided outstanding service and was very knowledgeable regarding menu items. Dining with a tired toddler can be challenging at best, and he went above and beyond to make sure that her experience was enjoyable as well. The... More

Ate here for the first time on a whim while in town for business. The ambiance outside on the water dining was the best. It was pretty busy for a Friday night. The food selections are all rich Cajun cuisine, with mostly seafood options but meals can be customized to your liking. It was on the higher end cost wise... More

Yet again another wonderful dining experience at Louisiana Lagniappe. The outside atmosphere gives a peaceful and relaxing place to enjoy the wonderfully crafted meals. The menu options can't be beat in the Destin area. Hopefully you will find this place as enjoyable as we do.

Louisiana Lagniappe is my girlfriend's favorite restaurant in Destin, and I wanted to make reservations because I planned to propose before coming to dinner, and I wanted everything to be perfect. While they do not take reservations, the woman I spoke with congratulated me and told me that she would make sure my name was "on the list" and they... 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.
