This is a must stop for us as we enjoy the harbor views. We like the oysters cold beer and food is always of good quality.

It was a nice atmosphere on the beach, but the food was average at best. The staff had no personality. This would not be a keeper.

It has a nice outdoor deck to see the harbor but that is about it. I would consider this place more of a tourist trap than anything else. It seemed more geared toward the drinkers and not the family. The prices are what you would expect for a tourist trap and there are much better restaurants up the road that also have outdoor piers overlooking the harbor and worth the $$$s you expect to spend and for what you should get for those dollars. Go to Dewey's instead!

There are two parts to this restaurant: one inside and one outside. You definitely want to sit outside so you can enjoy the view of Destin Harbor. The food was very good. The stuffed shrimp was amazing. Others had the all-you-can-eat popcorn shrimp and crab cakes. The chocolate cake for dessert was fabulous. Our waitress was delightful. Service was a little slow as they were quite busy.

We had EXCELLENT service from our waiter Justin. First good service we've had in Destin!! The food was good too! I had the all you can eat popcorn shrimp (& catfish). The shrimp was good - it had a nice light batter. The fries were AWESOME! I don't usually like fried fish but found myself eating the fried catfish there! Would definitely eat here again.
