Great bar, decent sushi, good food. Wait staff and management were responsive and friendly, and upon learning we were locals made sure our experience was enjoyable and satisfactory.

Great service and menu. Had the same waitress two years in a row. Great sushi and drinks. Awesome view of the ocean. A must when in Destin on the harbor. Never disappointed.

We went as a party of five on an off night when the restaurant was nearly empty. The décor is woody, open, and tries to be nautical. If crowded, the noise levels would be distracting as there are no soft surfaces. Now, for the meal.....Each of us tried something different in the seafood category. My shrimp soft tacos were tasty but so huge and unwieldly that large portions of the filling wound up in my lap or on the table. The potatoes that were made to sound like some new kind of French fry, were very thick potato chips. No one had any praise for their meal and given the price, we were not overwhelmed with any aspect of this restaurant. The prices are high, but given the tourist environment this is to be expected. I have doubts that this is popular with the locals, but they find a fresh crown of tourists each day during the Summer. I can not recommend this restaurant when there are better ones locally.
