The view at the Surf Hut is what dining in Destin is all about. Absolutely gorgeous. Another thing you notice right away is that the entire wait staff is very friendly and enthusiastic. The food is above average as well. Seafood platters will run between $22-$27, while the tacos and sandwich platters run between $12-$16. We were there for lunch, so I had the blackened shrimp tacos and rice, both were quite good. The shrimp weren't too blackened, and the flavors were subtle. The rice had cilantro and black beans and was very good. Again, not overdone. My wife had the shrimp sandwich and fries. It's like a po-boy, but served on a yellow hamburger bun instead. She wasn't thrilled with it, said it was OK. The one thing I would not recommend is the sangria. They have two, one made with white wine, and one made with merlot. I had the merlot, and it was barely recognizable as sangria. Maybe the white wine sangria is better. One thing to keep in mind is that the entire restaurant is open air. There was a nice breeze the day we went so it wasn't too bad. All in all it was a very good experience for me. Although my wife said with all the other dining options in the area, she probably wouldn't go back.
