Description: Welcome to The Surf Hut, the newest restaurant addition to the South Walton, Destin/Miramar Beach area. Sit back, relax and enjoy the view! This brand new, open air restaurant is located directly on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and is the place to be all year long! The Surf Hut has a menu that goes far beyond your typical 'beach fare' and adds a little surfer flare to a cuisine that includes Seafood, Oysters and St. Louis Style BBQ! Kids meals are served in a take home souvenir frisbees and we've got a custom game area on the beach where you can grab a game of corn hole while you watch the waves and sip a delicious signature frozen libation from our full bar! Whether you're looking for a place for lunch while you're enjoying the beach, a local spot to get fresh from the Gulf seafood, date night or a family friendly place to bring the kids, The Surf Hut has got something for everyone! Boogie on down to The Surf Hut, enjoy the food, the fun and the waves! See you soon!

Restaurant has been open for 73 days. Boy have they started off with a bang! Servive (Chris was our waiter) was excellent and very quick. Our food was above average with a nice presentation. Family atmosphere with good on site parking (something you don't find much of around the beach front restaurants). We will definitely return!

Couldn't have asked for better atmosphere, food, and service. Met Al at the door, he took our photo and had great conversations! Tina was incredible too - very personable and took great care of us (she also took our photo!) The entire restaurant and patio was very well thought out. We will be back and we are bringing out friends too!!!

This place has a lot of potential. We went mid afternoon so it wasn't busy. There were more servers standing around than there were customers.
The food was overpriced and not the greatest. Our service started out good but quickly declined. There are much better places to eat for the price.

The food and drinks were good, although I don't think they were quite worth the price. My sister said the fish tacos were great though. It has a really great atmosphere and it is nice that it is right on the beach. Overall, a pretty nice place but definitely much more touristy than I typically like.

Our server, Samantha, was extremely helpful and pleasant. We were a group of 9 and they were able to seat us in less than 5 minutes. Grandchildren liked the fish and popcorn shrimp from kids menu. The seafood platter was good and they accommodated our wish to substitute for the gumbo. I know this is a relative new place and read other comments about a young staff not seeming to care but they were all terrific. You need to try this place out. Might think about having some shrimp that is peel and eat.
