Great fried seafood place; excellent hushpuppies. Fried shrimp was delicious. The view of the bay makes it so pleasant while eating outdoors.

I was really excited about trying this place because I had heard of their reputation over the years. I was sooooo disappointed. It was terrible. The food was overpriced, overcooked, not seasoned, just awful. The view was gorgeous from where my fiancé and I sat. But if it wasn't for the wine and the seating we would have had the worst evening of our vacation due to this poor choice. Don't go there...Highly Overrated!!!!!! There are so many places in Destin that are far better. I would only recommend this place for drinks and scenery.

Went here because several locals suggested it, guess we should have asked WHAT they ordered. Decided on the Mahi Mahi Destin and was surprised when their house fish arrived dried out and overcooked, because it's frozen. Totally ruined our dinner experience and the desire for fish the rest of the trip. The manager could have cared less that we sent THREE dishes back to the kitchen, and didn't even visit our table until we requested to speak to her. The waitress ended up getting chewed out for whatever reason, she was the only saving grace for the place. Save your money and go next door to Boshamps.

The view from the patio was nice. It was nice to watch the activity in the harbor. Our server was excellent. I wanted the Parmesan fish, but didn't want mahi mahi so he suggested I sub a fish. I opted for grouper. It was a pricey ($29) substation, but that's my fault for not asking before I ordered it. The dish was very good, although I was thirsty the rest of the day since Parmesan is salty and the dish was loaded with it. But, as long as you're prepared to drink plenty of water, I would recommend it to any Parmesan lover!

Expensive, slow service and food quality did not come up to posted reviews. I ordered soft shell crabs. When served they were not hot and were tough. Appa erntly too far past moulting.
