“Great place for people watching!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

We sat outside and enjoyed dinner while watching the world pass by. The food was good and service friendly. Was our first night in town and while walking to the restaurant, met Emeril in the parking lot. Asked him if we were heading in the right direction for the restaurant..... let's just say, he is nicer on TV...lol!

“Decent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I had dinner at Acme while on vacation. It was good New Orleans style food. I had the Jambalya which was very good. The bread pudding was just okay, I've definitely had better. All in all, if you want this style of food, it was good.

“Slightly Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I had heard rave reviews about Acme before going there so I had high expectations. The place was overly crowded with tables and chairs, you were right on top of other people. The food is extremely overpriced ($20 for a fried shrimp platter) and it wasn't anything special. It's not somewhere I'd recommend to a friend.

“Food was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Nothing fancy. Expensive, but all restaurants in Sandestin are. Appetizer portions were large enough to be a meal. Don't go looking for healthy food, it isn't on their menu. Good gumbo, etouffee and desserts.

“Some of the best in Sandestin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

We have been going to Sandestin for 7 years now... and never once tried Acme... we always ate at Hammerheads or Poppy's in the Village... but this year, we tried Acme.... wow were we missing out! The food was great! Our daughter loved the hush puppies... but the oysters were great, the shrimp was great... everything we ate tasted fresh and good. Now portions are a little small, thus probably why its cheaper then the other restaurants I mentioned earlier... but now I understand why there is always a long wait for a table here. We definitly will be coming back to Acme next year when we visit Sandestin again.
