Best seafood restaurant?

What's the best seafood restaurant in Destin?

Where do the locals go? I'm looking for a place that has great steamed oysters.

NOT a buffet!

Ah, steamed oysters. You're showing your east coast roots. Try 'em raw at Busters or Acme Oyster House. Also there's a place called Kenny D's on Scenic Gulf Drive. These are just a few, cause there are many to be found. The 3 above are on this map: http://www.communitywalk.com/map/2872

Steamed oysters? Not usually a NW FL thing.

What you want when you're here is a big bowl of boiled Gulf shrimp, a platter of oysters on the half shell, and some grilled fish (try Amberjack if you want something you can't get anywhere else).

My favorites for seafood:

3-Thirty-1 (on Choctawhatchee Bay on route 331) (Walton Cty)

Bay Cafe - a beautiful little French restaurant (in FWB)

Bayou Bill's (haven't been there in years but I put it on this list anyway because you CAN actually get a steamed basket of seafood, including oysters, there) hwy 98, close to Walton Cty if not actually in it)

Beach Walk Cafe (Destin)

Camille's (Destin)

Fish Out of Water (30-A?/Walton Cty)

Marina Cafe (Destin)

Red Bar (Grayton Beach/Walton Cty)
