“Wonderful Dinner.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Visited this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. They are right on the beach and offer a beautiful view of the dunes and sunset. I am soooo glad we ate here. Their pricing is typical for gourmet food and it is well worth it.

We tried the grouper Vince and the crab cakes and both were scrumptious.

For desert we shared the key lime pie and it was excellent.

We will definitely come back on our next visit to Destin. Highly recommended.

“Pretty view, decent food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014 via mobile

We ate dinner here on a Tuesday night. The view is beautiful. The hotel is beautiful. The dinner was not outstanding. I would suggest sticking to apps & wine.
Appetizers: caprese salad- tasty vinaigrette & moist mozzarella; eggplant app very good - we kept the sauce for bread dipping;
Entrees: halibut special, yellowfin tuna & blackened grouper. I would recommend the halibut but not the tuna or the grouper. The tuna - for being allegedly freshly caught - tasted very bland & old. The grouper was overcooked which was a total disappointment. And I've eaten Grouper all over before so I know it's not the fish.
Desserts- we had the banana cream pie, key lime pie & the bread pudding. Not one dessert was outstanding in any way. I advise against the key lime pie. The whipped cream on the banana cream pie completely overshadowed any bananas or crust.
The cost of the dinner was absolutely expected - exorbitant - and that would be just fine if the quality of the dishes matched the cost.
Have a cocktail here and maybe some apps, go eat fish at the Harbor Dock.

“Awesome dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

This is a must do if you enjoy great dining AND the beach. Upscale, romantic, adults only bed and breakfast on the beautiful Destin Beach. Early April it was COLD but I had my heart set on eating out on the veranda. They had huge heaters going and they gave us lap blankets. Food and service is fabulous. Ladies you will receive a rose after you've enjoyed your meal. Love it, will return every time we visit Destin - which I hope will be often. One day we may even save enough to stay in the inn :-)

“SUPERB!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

This was a wedding gift and boy was it SCRUMPTIOUS! The service was wonderful. Our waiter was very nice. The atmosphere was very romantic. The view was fabulous! And yes the food was worth every penny. The eggplant appetizer with crabmeat was superb. The Seafood Rockefeller was the best. The brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked and seasoned. The grouper was outstanding. The homemade bread was delicious. I just didn't have room for dessert. I will be going back again the next time I'm in Destin.
