From the moment we walked in we were greeted with warm, welcoming staff. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Our meals were delicious and presented in pretty fashion.- grouper almandine and fried shrimp. Tasty dessert menu and our server Chris was just great! Don't miss this little lovely place. They work hard on putting much attention to detail!

Took the family to have Thanksgiving mid afternoon. They had a short menu but enough choices for everyone. The food was good. The service was excellent. The children price at $16.00 was too high.

We've eaten here on our annual trip to Florida numerous times and it is one of our favorites. We always get the early bird special and my Chicken Piccata was delicious as usual, although it could have used a little more sauce. The bread is hot and seems to be right out of the oven. This was the first time... More

I realized after our second visit that the guys all have pink ties. Very professional, No problems when requesting gluten free. And the band was great. I'm not sure of their name though.

Absolutely outstanding in every way. We are vegan and that's a problem in many restaurants, but not at the Ocean Club. We always find Rick Ivey, a senior waiter who understands our menu requirements and manages to satisfy our vegan needs. We depend on Rick for great vegan meals. 'Emerald Gold', perhaps the best band on the coast is always... More

This is one of the more expensive restaurants in Destin, but the food, service, and wine selection are all very good. If you want a special meal this is the place, and they also have live music

Each year our group of four couples, all senior citizens, vacation for a couple of weeks in Destin, Florida. We plan our restaurants of choice well in advance with each couple choosing the evenings dining experience. The Ocean Club, one of our favorites for years, has always been chosen at least once for dinner. On Friday the 30th of September,... More

We went at five when the Ocean Club opened for the day. We were told dinner was two for one! We had the steak special...it was cook to perfection. Our waiter had been with them for 25 years and was very helpful.

Had the most Fabulous dinner last night at Ocean Club. Would not miss a trip here while in Destin. Highlight of the trip. I had the grouper , while my husband had the seafood platter. Both were wonderful. Our waiter Brett made it even better. So friendly and made sure we were enjoying our meal. He is Top Shelf .

Ate here with my wife and wanted steak instead of seafood. The steaks were really good. They came fairly quickly. The potatoes were good, both mashed and baked. The problem was our server. Nice but slow. He never filled our water glasses without us asking him. The manager did so one time. When I asked for dessert, it took forever.... More
