My family and I always stay at sand piper cove, since I was two. This restaurant is within the condominiums. This place is a little pricey but totally worth is! It's always fantastic.

First let me start off by saying the view is amazing. Our server Joel was very attentive and informative when it came to our questions. We started with the complimentary hushpuppies and they were delicious. I had the voodoo punch cocktail and my husband the bayou breeze. Both were strong and sweet. For an appetizer we had the lobster Rangoon's... More

Dress a little nicer for this place and try the crab cakes. It's probably one of the more expensive places to eat on Destin but you'll be glad you did.

You must go there hungry because portions are huge. Service was very good. Ambiance is white table cloth old school. I ate half of my shrimp and grits and my husband was very full after eating stuffed shrimp. No room for dessert, very heavy on the stomach...tomorrow I'm going for a run.

Thoroughly enjoyed an evening out while vacationing in Destin. We arrived early to make sure that we got a table with a nice view (restaurant does not take reservations) and were not disappointed. The view from the outside patio was beautiful and we were able to enjoy the sunset. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the service was great. Loved the... More

My boyfriend and I went to Destin for his birthday 2 years in a row July 29-Aug 1st. Both times we went to Louisiana Lagniappe for his birthday dinner. He loved it in 2015 and wanted to go again 2016. Once again we had the Mardi Gras Shrimp as our appetizer. It's definitely enough for 4 people. He had the... More

OK back porch is better, I thought they cheated me after I ate at back porch. U pay for the view and the back porch kills they're view. Go to back porch and enjoy. I eat at really nice restaurants and know quality.

Loved it! Will go definitely go back!! We started off with Lobster Rangoons as an appetizer. Then we all tried something different so we could sample it all since it all sounded so good. We had blackened redfish, seafood lagniappe, sautéed grouper louisianne, and the filet mignon. It was all delicious!!!

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.
