Good food, reasonably priced, relaxed atmosphere. Service was good. Items for sale were a little pricey, but expected in a tourist location like Destin.

I've eaten at Stinky's a half dozen times now and have never been disappointed. I will continue to go bake for the baked oysters - so delicious. Bring some friends and order THE LOG. Can't get enough.

We ate here twice on our vacation. The raw oysters were some of the best I've ever had. On the first trip I had the grilled wahoo with tropical fruit slaw and crawfish hush puppies. On the return visit I had the blackened trigger fish with Brabant potatoes and stir fry vegetables. Both meals were exceptional. The seating is very... More

I've heard about this place for a long time from numerous friends and knew we had to try it on our first visit to the 30A area. I had set my expectations very high because of these recommendations and reviews on Tripadvisor, so the bar was set very high. On our second day of vacation we had lunch at Stinky's.... More

Best place to eat seafood. Period. We have been eating at Stinky's for about 10 years on our annual golf trip to Destin. Every year we are amazed by our meal and it is the culinary highlight of our trip. This year I had the 3 for $30 special. The salad wedge was a classic with green goddess dressing and... More

This was my 3rd time here and my husband's first. Had dinner at the bar instead of waiting for a table. We had a great experience - interesting to watch the activity behind the busy bar where raw oysters are shucked - very impressive! Menu is interesting and I combined some appetizers as my entree and was very happy with... More

Drove down to the area for lunch from south Alabama. Wait time 30 minutes at 1pm in the afternoon. Not bad, drank a beer in the bait bar next door. Food arrived in a reasonable amount of time. For a $16 grouper sandwich...very disappointed. More bread than fish...french fries were obviously the bottom of the bag and cold. Long way... More

We strive to serve hot and delicious food to every guests. Thank you for letting us know and we will address it. Please ask for a manager at your next visit... More

A local tipped us off to Stinky's. We had a great lunch and the service was good, too. Oysters were fresh and delicious and so were the prawns. We passed on the cocktails but noticed the bartender mixing up a fresh batch of Stinky Juice, a blend of fresh tropical fruits. We would have come back but we were leaving... More

Fun place! Bartenders- Missy & others - made our evening when we stopped after a horrible dinner. Some of the best food on 30a!

My wife and I, and another couple, were here for lunch. My wife and I each had the fried shrimp, which we thought was terrific. It came with a tomato tartar sauce, which was tasty and complimented the shrimp nicely, but we probably would prefer the traditional cocktail sauce. The shrimp were excellent - good-sized, lightly breaded, very flavorful. Our... More

Stinky's is the best seafood restaurant on 30-A. We offer a selection of fresh Gulf fish every day and a variety of Louisiana-inspired dishes. Very kid friendly.
