“Best restaurant visited on our 7 day vacation.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Our waitress, Tara was awesome!! I shared I was interested in a good fish and I love crab meat. She recommend the grouper with lump crab meat called the seared gulf grouper which I highly recommend! My wife order the catch of the day which was grilled cobia with the mango salsa. She had never had cobia before and loved it! Came time for dessert and Tara recommended the Key Lime pie which was one of the best I've ever had. The whole family ranted and raved over it. Tara's food recommendations were right on!!! In addition, I love Fat Tire beer and they had it! We go down to Destin, FL once a year and this will be a tradition eating at The Surf Hut in the future.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Our server, Conrad, was great!! Larger group, two families with 3 kids, was attentive and prompt with every aspect of the meal. We sat outside with a great view of the ocean and the kids played in the sand right in front of our table. From the appetizers to the sea food and local beer, everything was great!
