“Hook n cook” is them cooking up our catch from fishing…the service was friendly and fast and menu items were a hit! We let the chef decide how to cook our fresh catch and he didn’t disappoint!
Will definitely be back every year!
This was a great find! The sushi was fresh and delicious and the shrimp rangoons were out of this world. My daughter and I had the spicy shrimp poke’ bowl which had a nice spice to it and was a good portion. My husband had...the shrimp boil, it was also a good portion size and he enjoyed the seasoning and the way it all was prepared. All in all, we will definitely go back when in the area!More
We arrived, the restaurant was full, a 10 minute wait, and we were seated. The gentleman server was at our table within 2-3 minutes and thereafter, he was at our table @ least every 10 minutes checking on us. Our server, a curly haired gentleman...with a great attitude that was just fantastic.
During this time, I had the opportunity to watch management continuously standing and supervising both the kitchen and the front of the restaurant. The two managers/owners, tall man and blonde female were constantly moving about the restaurant, moving orders, checking on drink orders, and timing on output from the kitchen.
I have dined @ Jackacudas at least 8-12 times in the past and although service can be slow at times, the food and polite service far outweigh any wait time.
Great job with managing your restaurant.

We stopped because the name caught our eye - so glad we did. We had Brussel sprouts, grilled fish tacos, and shrimp & grits - all fantastic. Our server, Matt, was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend!
We went to this place last summer and it was great so decided to go back again.
However it was terrible this time. Sushi was so tiny ( you can get better quality at super market ) and it was not even rolled good, like...person who rolled is New and never rolled before? I really wish I had taken a picture.
Waitress was new but not trained well. Everything was so bad, I didn't see manager who used to work at last summer so maybe under different management? anyway turned out to be terrible lunch.
I would not recommend this place any more.More
First of all, these were the best fish tacos I’ve ever eaten! They were so good that we had to tell the chef personally.
Out waitress was very attentive and nice. It wasn’t busy when we came in so she was able to talk with...us. It was just an overall wonderful experience. My husband and I highly recommend!More
This has to be one of the best restaurants in the Destin/Santa Rosa Beach areas because of price, quality of food, and overall service. Ron was our waiter who suggested my now favorite sushi plate (The Josephine). Very helpful in picking food items when there...are so many great things to choose from. Love this place and the people!More
Jackacudas is a must stop for us! Ron was absolutely amazing, and recommended the Josephine roll- it is our new favorite!! Excellent service from Ron 10/10 all around! Can’t recommend this place enough!

It is unfortunate that during peak seasons here in Destin businesses hire a bunch of part time staff which is mostly younger teenagers. They have not developed to where they have good ethical values. It is hit and miss on getting decent service at restaurants. Not all servers are bad, there are some that you get great service.
