This was the best meal we had in Destin. We've eaten at many of the restaurants in the area over the years, but this was our first trip in a few years. This was also our first trip to Louisiana Lagniappe. It's located in the back of a condo/town home community, and right on the water with boats parked right... More

Awesome food with an awesome view. Why anyone would ever sit inside is beyond me, but the entire place is nicely appointed and the food and drinks are amazing. We started with a strong Manhattan at the bar, and moved outside for dinner. The off-menu special that evening was amazing - grouper with a shrimp and crab meat stuffing on... More

We dine at this great restaurant, every time we're visiting Destin! It NEVER fails! Amazingly prepared some extremely terrific fish dishes. (I'm told the steaks are great, we just LOVE the seafood!)

This is a white tablecloth restaurant but casual. They have plenty of seating inside and out. The food is superb, the wait staff superb and choices on the menu are plentiful. The wine list is also impressive. I've never had a disappointing meal or experience there. They start you off with wonderful hot hush puppies. Last night my husband ordered... More

Took our family here for our last meal on vacation and it did not disappoint. The redfish with lobster and crab topping was perfectly cooked and the beef medallions were so tender you could cut them with a fork. They also have a few craft/local beers on tap. It was a tad pricey but well worth it.

Very tasty and a nice place to spend time with that special one. I was amazed that they deep fried the crab but it was delicious!!!

Visited this place for first time October 2016. Atmosphere and ambiance was great. We were told prob 45 min wait so we sat at a table in bar area. We ordered a drink and tried to order an appetizer but bar tender just gave us a ticket for our drinks and never bothered to give us a chance to even... More

We ate here on our last evening while on vacation. We had heard really good things, so we were excited to give it a try. We were surprised when we saw a sign for it right below a sign for a condo community. Sure enough - it's in the back of the community. The view is okay - mostly looking... More

Our last evening in Destin plans were made to eat at Louisiana Lagniappe. That was a mistake it was the worst attempt at Cajun Creole cooking I have had, and I have had a lot. Over cooked seafood that tasted more like fried batter then seafood. I do not mind paying big prices for good food but bad food. Don't... 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.
