Destin Restaurant Info

First of all, thanx to all of you on this forum who give such great tips and info!!! It is especially helpful to those of us who are going to Destin for the first time. Those Guide Books can often be rather misleading, if you know what I mean.

I have a few questions on several restaurants.

What about the BEACH WALK CAFE? Do they serve good food? Seafood only? Reasonable prices? Location? Good view or other "plus"? Any "Early Bird" Specials?

Same questions for THE LIGHTHOUSE.

Same questions for CAMILLES.

Same questions for MULHOLLOW'S.

Also, what is the FUNKY BLUES SHACK?

Beachwalk - Many people like it, but that is a personal thing isn't it?

High priced.

The Lighthouse - I have seen their kitchen

Camilles - Very good. Not cheap, but not real pricey

Funky Blues Shack has a restaurant connected to it named Graffiti's which is very good.

Lighthouse has early birds year round.

Graffiti's has a 10% off coupon in the local menu book publication

Yppub, you're always such a help & I appreciate it!

One more question, at least for now...

What about CAPT. DAVE'S ON THE GULF? I have read conflicting reports on it. What is your opinion?

SonSeeker - I haven't eaten there for years. I understand that most of the people who eat there are tourist. When I did eat there many years ago, I always thought it was OK. Not great, but OK.

The last time I ate at Capt Dave's, I got the feeling I was being rushed. Leave the tip, reseat the table. I think most restaurants think in terms of an early and late seating. I think they may be trying to push for three. But they are busy, so from a business point of view, I probablly would think the same. My wife said she did not care to go back, but the food was good. I agree with vppub's take on it.

There use to be two Capt Daves. The one on the Harbor has been gone for 10 years - (hurricane Opal). The one on the Gulf had serious damage from Hurricane Ivan, but it is open now.

For Casual:

Dewey Destin Seafood

Graffiti's

Camille's

Red Bar - Grayton Beach

331 Restaurant

Cafe Tango - Blue Mountain Beach

McGuire's

Harbor Docks - but the service is bad

For Not so Casual-

Ocean Club

Marina Cafe

Oh and if HPI fan reads this, it use to be Veranda - gone now.

Cafe Thirty-A ??? Sometimes

But the BEST seafood is at My House. Lol
