We escaped the snow, ice, & single digit temperatures of Pennsylvania to spend three wonderful nights at the Henderson Park Inn. Each breakfast was a fantastic event! They included made to order omelets with a great selection of fresh ingredients, waffles, ham, bacon, sausage, potatoes, the best grits I have ever had, a new delicious surprise to us northerners called grillades with either pork or shrimp, fresh fruits & berries, yogurt, granola, fresh baked pastries, fresh squeezed juices...chef's Greg & Alan really did it up right! Chef Greg's mid-morning cooking class, complete with bloody Mary's, is a must! A quality box lunch was provided each day & was accompanied by a fresh & tasty chowder or bisque. Fresh baked cookies, lemonade, & sweet tea were also provided from mid-morning until early afternoon, & of course coffee, tea, sodas, water, & candy bars were available anytime. Happy hour, with complementary cocktails of your choice, were served every day at the Tiki bar on the spacious deck. Then there was dinner...as if you could be hungry after all that! Our group only did dinner one night but it was excellent in both quality & presentation! Selections we sampled included delightful appetizers, top quality fillet Mignon, swordfish & shrimp, New Zealand venison chops, & amazing..VERY large...desserts, featuring THE MOST OUTSTANDING key lime pie I have ever had prepared by chef Charles. The wait staff...headed up by Jimmy...was attentive to every need. The Inn itself is a wonderful place! A bottle of wine, flowers, & fresh grapes await you in the spacious rooms, which also include a very comfortable king size bed, a jacuzzi tub, and the most breathtaking view from your balcony out of your French doors of the dazzling white sand beach meeting the Gulf! Natalie, Tamee, Rachel, & Ryan headed up a cheerful & attentive staff at the Inn which saw to every detail. Our stay was perfect & you will not be disappointed! Mark & Gloria, PA

We ate dinner at Boardwalk last night. I was pricier than most restaurants in the Destin area. However, we decided to splurge. As we entered the dining area we were struck by the intimate ambiance and the breathtaking sunset. While there were many wait staff, their attentiveness was disappointing.

We were served a chef’s special which was delicious. I ordered the Grouper Vince which was outstanding. My husband ordered Ahi Tuna Sushi Style. (He had his cooked). It was very good. The homemade bread was also outstanding. My husband ordered mashed potatoes as a side. I ordered a diet Coke. Our bill was over $90.

All in all, it was worth eating at the Boardwalk once, to satiate our curiosity.

We spent 4 nights at HPI and dined at the Beach Walk twice. It is a quiet place, great view if there before dark and the food was excellent. It also offers outside dinning if weather permits.

Without a doubt, our dining experience was flawless. The food was delicious and the presentation awesome. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. The view was spectacular even with the inclement weather watching the majestic waves. Our service was excellent. Ask for LANCE - he was attentive without being disruptive - he is the BEST..
