Been here a few times now and each time just seems to be less exciting, quality of food is below average/very poor and the ambiance is just way too outdated. Most recent visit was in late April, 2012 and the spinach was terrible, it was like it was poured out of a can and microwaved. The fried shrimp and scallops were definetly frozen, grocery store, mass produced type food quickly heated up. Awful. My wife had a chicken dish (chicken florentine maybe?) and she said hers was terrible too, and I tried one bite and agreed. We were there with my wifes parents who like this place, so we just enjoyed their company and went along for the ride, but we were so dissapointed..would be very surprised if we ever go back to this place. Needs a facelift from the menu to the entire interior. There are so many other good places to eat in Destin in my humble opinion.

Interesting concept. Eat before 8pm and a large selection of half price entrees. We went at 7:30 on a Friday night with a party of seven and was seated immediately. Our server made the difference. She responded to all three generations, and made each of our dining experiences great. (five teenagers) Grilled Amberjack, Stuffed Shrimp, and Steak were excellent. Excellent bread served while you wait for your entrees. The teacher who recommended this resturant was correct. This is a dependable resturant. No view, but it can handle large groups and yet the couples tables looked extremely happy too. Plan on approximately fifteen dollars or more per person before eight. You can eat for less. Senior pricing. Liver and onions is on the menu.

I tried a lot of different restaurants on my recent month-long stay in Destin , but none was better than the Lighthouse. they have a half price menu available on a wide selection of items. i enjoyed the grilled tilapa the first vist.....bt decided to return and check ths place out a second time. This time I had the fisherman's grilled platter and it was even better! I cannot say enough...great food, great service, and great ambiance. Highly recommended....

This an elderly crowd in a older space. The food and price were adequate, but nothing to write home about. We went because of the 1/2 price special and the food was also OK. It was a good bargain...once.
