“Everything was great, exceeded our expectations.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

We read some reviews & decided to go. We were not disappointed. Two of us had the Yellow Fin Tuna, 1 had catch of the day Grouper & 1 had Shrimp & Oysters. Everyone loved their meal, quick & friendly service. Going back for sure!

“As good as it gets in Destin (food)”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

The Lighthouse is sort of hidden away on Gulf Shore Dr (behind the Texaco). We had alway heard good things about it, but had never gone. The menu is reasonably priced and their 1/2 off is really a good bargain. I ordered from the "senior side:, any one can. The ribeye was wonderful, cooked to perfection and tender. Friends had Trigger Fish and loved it, as did my wife. The service is excellant and you don't feel rushed. It is definately a Snowbird crowd. They do serve liquor, but no bar area. The special 1/2 price runs from 4 to 8 daily. We will definately go again next year.

“Great seafood value!”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

So glad we persisted in trying to find this somewhat hidden gem! The waitress was pleasant, the menu quite extensive, and the prices & portions were an excellent value for delicious seafood. Both of us ordered the fried oysters, and one order came with shrimp as well. They were both excellent! The oysters were huge, lightly breaded, and tender, probably the best I've had. The tomato soup that came with the meal was thick and very good, although I would have preferred to not have the bacon flavor there. A warm loaf of dark rye, and a yummy potato/mushroom/onion casserole accompanied the dinner, very good as well. All of this for a reasonable price, especially when dining early. By the way, drinks were also well-priced and good.

“Best flavored seaford combo”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

What a wonderful experience for Valentine's Day. We have gone by the restaurant several times and mentioned to stop. While in Destin for Valentine's Day thought this would be a special restaurant and they didn't disappoint. I had senior portion which was adequate and husband had seafood combo that was excellent. Decor may be 1980's but was very clean with nice nautical feel. Ladies all received cookie for dessert which was special. Will return for dinner again.

“Bad food”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Sorry, but we won't be back. After being assured by Mary that their trigger fish was delicious, we ordered it and it was the worst thing I have ever eaten. Used to be a good place to go, but they put sooooo much salty seasoning on their fish. After several not too good meals there, we have decided to go elsewhere.
