“Always better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

I am always more pleased than I expected when I eat here. The menu offers many items to choose from and all are cooked as they should. I particularly like the booths in the back for more privacy. Service is uniformly professional and personable. This is a great place for lunch, business or pleasure, as the prices are lower and the portions are just right. There is a good happy hour offering select appetizers and drinks at special prices. If you like seafood you can make a meal out of it. I suggest making reservations for dinner during peak times as this is a popular place. Mitchell's is a great place to go if you want seafood that is not all fried.

I love this restaurant and cannot wait until I have business in Destin again just to go back. The food tasted so fresh and had great flavor.

Always the best, most consistently excellent meal. We never miss a visit when in the area. Service is professional, food superbly prepared. Fresh and tasty. Not cheap by any means, but worth it

“Excellent Miramar Beach/Sandestin Seafood Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

This restaurant is located in the Shoppes at Grand Blvd. so it is not on the water. There was plenty of parking with no valet (which I view as a plus). The decor was dark and had a mixed modern/old school feel to it. The hostess was friendly and chatty.....we had no reservations and were seated immediately. We did not have to wait long before we were greeted by our server Celeste. She was super friendly and was very thorough about going through the menu with us and answering any questions. My wife got the Pear Martini and I got the Mojito off the signature cockail list. Both were extremely fresh and tasted excellent. We did not get an appetizer but quickly ordered our main courses. The wife ordered the seafood trio which consisted of mahi, salmon and scallops. I ordered the salmon oscar that was covered with lobster and shrimp (my meal also included a copy of gumbeaux.) Our food was prepared quickly and the portion size was very generous. We shared off each others plates and I can say that everything was prepared as it should be. We were too full to split dessert (which we normally do) however we saw a piece of carrot cake being delivered to a patron that was massive so it looks like this would be a good place to grab a cocktail and dessert for a date (a movie complex is right down the street) All in all an excellent dining experience and we will be back when visiting the Sandestin/Miramar Beach area in the future. Note**** this is an extremely convenient dining option if you are staying in the Sandestin Golf & Beach resort.

“Enjoyed Dinner Here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

Went by Trip Advisor reviews and local recommendation to try this restaurant. It's a nice place, with friendly service.

Both my wife and I ordered the cod stuffed with lobster and shrimp. It came with asparagus and mashed potatoes. The entire meal was delicious.

Many different fresh fish items for selection and how you want it cooked. It can get pricey depending on what you order, but you have to take into account that it's that type of restaurant and setting.
