Everyone must try their bang bang shrimp appetizer. It was absolutely delicious. The fettucine entree was really good also.

I've visited Bonefish Grill in Destin at least 50 times in the past four years. It's by far the best value restaurant in the area.

Salads are crisp, served in moderate sized portions. Appetizers are a particular strength, with the "Bang-bang" shrimp a regular winner of local culinary contests. Bread is fresh baked, served warm with pesto (or butter on request). Bonefish seafood is uniformly fresh and well prepared, with frequent special seasonal offerings and a variety of sauces. However, I've found that some of the best values on the menu are the meat entrees and pasta dishes (enough leftover for two more meals). Steaks are a bargain here. The wine list is not huge, but there's enough variety of medium priced wine to satisfy most customers.

I've eaten here alone, as well as with friends, family and business associates in groups as large as 20. The service is consistently excellent, whether dining at the regular tables, "community" tables, or the bar. Attitudes are positive and friendly, and the waitstaff glides through the aisles at a very brisk pace. It's entertaining to watch the unrehearsed choreography (and the number of "near misses").

This particular location (Bonefish is a chain) does especially well; at one time Destin was the busiest Bonefish in the country. The restaurant gets VERY crowded during prime tourist season (spring break, Memorial Day through mid-August and holiday weekends), with waits for walk-ins over two hours.But people wait that long because it's that good! At these times, sitting at the community tables or bar might be the best option. However Bonefish does set aside a portion of their tables for reservations, and they also have a call ahead "wait list."

If you're looking for an expensive gourmet restaurant to propose to your fiance, take her to Fish Out of Water at the Watercolor Inn in Seaside. But if you want consistently delicious, well-presented food with excellent service and very reasonable prices in an appealing, high energy atmosphere, you'll find it at the Destin Bonefish.
