We had several people recommend this restaurant to us and we almost passed it up. I'm so glad we decided to go! I love seafood but never really get anything steamed and I had never eaten crab legs before. I thought I'd try something new so I ordered a little steamer with shrimp, crab legs, mussels, clams, and oysters and... More

Awesome place. The seafood platter is designed for 4 but will easily feed 6 in my opinion. $128 for fresh and well cooked and presented platter, looked and tasted amazing. Place gets very busy so get there early. Not open at lunch and parking available straight outside if you are early. Valet parking later on. You can get hotdogs for... More

The best salad dressing served on their family salad. I always get the shrimp steamer. They do not fry anything which is awesome for us!!!

Really popular with the tourist and is busy as heck during tourist season. I prefer to get there early so as not to get overboiled/cooked steamed vegatables with the entrees. The steamer selections were great and fresh salads were plentiful. Service is friendly and come for a while as this ain't fast food. Worth the wait but if starving, move... More

Excellent meal. Good service. Ordered a couple of steamer bowls and, wow! Filled to the rim with crab, shrimp, oysters, mussels, clams, corn on the cob, and potatoes. Delicious! Get there early as it fills up fast.

The only reason it is not getting 5 stars is because the place is starting to show its age and could use a face lift. But, who really cares when the seafood is so good. We go every time we are in Destin. The prices are very reasonable for the amount you get and the service was very friendly. The... More

We have been here many times, whenever we are here on vacation or visiting family it's our tradition to come here! We love their steamers full of crab, shrimp, mussels, potatoes, corn and lobster with butter. You just can't get much better than that! And their house salads are delicious !!! The service is always great, it can get crowded... More
