Description: 790 On the gulf was established in June of 2009, and is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the ground floor of The Inn At Crystal Beach, 790 has become a huge favorite with locals and visitors alike! As the roots of the owners are from South Louisiana, they bring to Destin authentic dark roux Gumbos, Muffalettas, and much more! Here at 790 we continue to strive to bring to the table the freshest seafood available on the Gulf coast. Working with local seafood vendors, as well as seafood vendors in neighboring states, we have fresh fish brought in daily. Most in small quantities to insure freshness and quality. We prefer to be temporarily out of a menu item, than to compromise the quality. We look forward to you stopping by and watching the waves roll in with us....

We sat on the patio in beautiful weather and enjoyed the view of the beach. The service was extremely slow and the food was mediocre. We will not return to 790 on the Gulf.

We were a party of four and we wanted to make the "happy hour" since we had heard many great things about this restaurant.We had cups of gumbo,spicy smokey tuna dip and the early bird special of shrimp and cheesey grits.The wines were very good and the beers were very cold.We enjoyed the sunset and left feeling this definitely is a restaurant we will visit again.

We were there in early March, 2013 and they had a 'happy hour' menu that was wonderful. Small portions of a nice variety of foods like shrimp and grits, sesame tuna -- beautifully rare and tender. The shrimp and crawfish gumbo had some heat but was very tasty. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Right on the Gulf so beautiful sunsets.

I had lunch here with a friend. I had a fish sandwich with fries. It was very good. The view was amazing! I would eat here again.

We recently had 2 evening meals at 790. Our waiter was wonderful. We had the best appetizers.
The trout over eggplant was 5 stars. So were the baked mushrooms with andouile sausage.
Happy hour is a pleasant time there. It was freezing cold when we visited after Christmas. We will be back in May when outdoor seating will add another perk with the beach right there. Can't wait.
People at the table next to us were so enthusiastic-they sat with us and went over all the best choices. It's a place that lifts the spirits. Great atmosphere.
