We stopped in during happy hour, and they have $5 rolls, half-price apps, and some good drink deals. The service was really good, and we got a perfect seat to watch the activity in the marina. The southwestern quesadilla is excellent, and the sushi rolls weren't bad either.

My husband and I went on a little, mini-vacation to Destin to celebrate our 5 year anniversary and stumbled upon this gem. We are both sushi lovers and the restaurant did not disappoint.

Sushi was probably the best thing we ordered. Grouper was good but tasted a little freezer burned. Nice touch with being able to scan a card showing where the gag grouper was caught and by whom- also the processor. Would have been nice to know WHEN it was caught. A little pricey for the quality but hey, its Destin !

We're sorry to hear that your meal wasn't everything you wanted it to be. We assure you that none of our fish is ever frozen, we only buy and use fresh fish, so we apologize if it tasted off-- we get it fresh every morning! As you saw, you can even check the origins yourself. That being said, please let... More

We were highly recommend to eat here by our para sailing captain, so we went for dinner. We were told it would be a half hour wait for the two of us. Ok no problem, well an hour and fifteen minutes later we checked with the host to see what the extended wait was. In the mean time I had... More

We're so sorry that this was your experience with us, Johnna -- we assure you that this is incredibly rare, and we're working with our team right now to get to the bottom of this.

Bonafide sushi joint with an extensive bar menu, an awesome view, and a cool vibe. The best part is the food though. It rivals any higher end sushi joint that I've been to. The shrimp rangoons were slap yo momma good.

Thank Will M
Tyler J, Owner at Jackacuda's Seafood & Sushi, responded to this review

Those shrimp rangoons are a must, Will! Glad you went all-out and grabbed quite a few of our sushi options -- it's a high compliment that ours rank among some of the best you've tried. We'll be sure to pass along your compliments to our team in the kitchen! See you by again soon. Cheers, Chris and Tyler, Co-Owners More
