“Redfish is a must”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

My husband ordered the redfish, topped with andouille sausage. This is the best we have ever had, hands down. I ordered the mahi mahi which was the catch of the day and it was quite good.

Our children ordered the sushi rolls and they liked them. We shared the coconut cream pie for dessert which was good

Our favorite in Destin. We do early dining and we can always count on an excellent meal with good service.

“Good Food, Great View, Bad Service”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

I am a local. I eat here 3 or 4 times per year.
The view over the harbor is fantastic.
The food is almost always good.
The service from the one lady who typically serves at the bar is atrocious. Really if someone is really that grumpy, please find something else to do with your life.
I presume she must be related in some way to the owner else she would have been sacked years ago.
Read some of the other reviews to see what I mean.

“Classy but a little over priced”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

Hostess was almost like she was in a bad mood, not smiling and greeting people. We opted to sit outside and feel the breeze on the deck. Their apps are small / tasty and pricey. Had a main course meal with barbecue shrimp with grits and a vegetable medley which was good but small in portion size.
Parking lot was big, overall this place can improve but

“Mean people”
Reviewed June 5, 2014 via mobile

Went to this cafe before fireworks, all excited, in a good mood.. Set ourselves, bartender was mean, when my soup came out she literally dropped a plate in front of me like I'm a dog. Food is good, desert creme brûlée was fantastic, but absolutely unpleasant bartender made feel like unwanted guest. Don't want to come back
