Ate outside on the terrace. Beautiful surrounding. Service was good, but it was hard to see what you are eating. Can recommend the Baked Lump Crab & Shrimp Parmesan Dip and the Crab, Potato & Corn Bisque.

Nothing better overlooking the beautiful white sandy beaches with a fabulous wine selection and delicious appetizers. You won't be disappointed with 790 On The Gulf always one of our weekly stops.

We love staying here. The food is actually really good. Really good. The challenge is that the service and the attitudes are terrible. Not something you would expect. By far the worst service and bad attitudes in all of Destin. Far from helpful and friendly....More

Go to their website and look up Happy Hour. It will give you a list of items they serve from 3 to 6PM. We had the Hurricane Shrimp, BBQ Shrimp and Chicken Quesadilla and all were delicious.

790 On the gulf was established in June of 2009, and is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the ground floor of The Inn At Crystal Beach, 790 has become a huge favorite with locals and visitors alike! As the roots of the owners are from South Louisiana, they bring to Destin authentic dark roux Gumbos, Muffalettas, and much more! Here at 790 we continue to strive to bring to the table the freshest seafood available on the Gulf coast. Working with local seafood vendors, as well as seafood vendors in neighboring states, we have fresh fish brought in daily. Most in small quantities to insure freshness and quality. We prefer to be temporarily out of a menu item, than to compromise the quality. We look forward to you stopping by and watching the waves roll in with us....
