This restaurant is located in Baytowne Wharf within Sandestin. We spent a lot of time here because we really enjoyed the live music, walking out on the pier, and the overall atmosphere. Their speciality drinks were incredibly sweet but came in a giant "category 5" tourist cup. Their food was overpriced but absolutely delicious. I'm a food snob and was leery of this tourist trap, but the food was incredible. I had the black ended grouper tacos with cole slaw and a lime sour cream ontop. It came with chips and salsa and the salsa was homemade and yummy. My husband had the grilled oysters topped with parmesan and ate them in 4 minutEs flat. We had the key lime pie, which the server said was homemade. The pie was great but was topped with a lime sauce for visuals that I didn't care for. Overall, a good stop while in sandestin!

While in Florida during a recent business trip, we had dinner at this outstanding outdoor eatery in Destin. The waitress was friendly & knowledgeable,the salad & entree prepared fresh and served promptly. The band was entertaining & the pricing was reasonable considering this was located in a resort oriented area. Overall a great evening for either business or pleasure. We'll return when back in this area again!

Located on the bay at the Baytowne Wharf in the Sandestin development the restaurant had a live band performing and proximity to excellent sunset views over the bay. That's the good news. With NO draft beers on tap you are left to order bottled beer with a $5.00 price tag for domestic and $5.50 for import varieties. Then there is the food which I will describe as rather bland and unimaginative. That does not keep them from pricing it on the high side. We started with the Blue Moon bottled beer and decided to take it one course at a time. For appetizers she ordered the gumbo and I went with the Dynamite shrimp, both were average on the taste scale at best so we decided to not order the main course here and to try our fortunes elsewhere. The tab for two bottled beers and the two appetizers totaled over $35.00 before the tip. One final note, I asked for a glass of water to accompany my dish and the waitress originally brought me a styrofoam cup with ice and a bottled water. I could only imagine what the price tag for bottled water might be and declined it asking for tap water instead.
The service was fine and the location is worthy, just remember you are paying for that and don't expect the food fare to equal the location.
