Although it may be a little tricky to find, this restaurant always delivers in terms of great quality, reasonable prices, and attractive décor. The grilled grouper is the best in Destin. Plus great hushpuppies. We have been eating there for the last fourteen or more vacations. As for me and mine, the Lagniappe never disappoints.

Love the food. Love the atmosphere. Love the cocktails. We went with teenagers and a 10 year ago old...all the adults found tasty entrees and the teenagers like the fettuccine option with shrimp or grilled chicken. Veronica, our server, was excellent and very attentive. We will definitely be back next year!

We had dinner here twice during our stay in Destin. The "little bit extra" was what brought us back. The seafood selections were a azing and the filet was prepared perfectly. Could have filled up on the hush puppies, but I'm glad I saved room for the meal.

Been hearing about this restaurant for years and finally went. It's tucked away in a neighborhood and signage and directions are slightly lacking. BUT, the effort was worthwhile! This is on the water with tons of outdoor seating and even more inside heating. Can't add to much to what has already been said. Service is great, food is excellent and... More

Sat outside for dinner, but it was almost too cool. Be warned - there were two cats we could see - one by the entrance and one on the rear deck, in case one of you has a cat phobia. Food was on the pricey side, so I lucked out with an appetizer of 2 excellent crab cakes and a... More

If you haven't tried Louisiana Lagniappe in Destin, Florida you are missing out. A little hard to find but well worth it. Seafood is fresh and cooked to perfection. Shrimp and grits are my favorite but everything my family has ordered has been excellent. This is always a must stop on our yearly trips to Destin. Love it.

I went with a party of four. We sat outside to enjoy the view of the little dock. The food is expensive. The blackened scallops were good, but the Cajun potato (which was kind of a twice baked mashed potato) wasn't anything special. Two of my friends got lobster and shrimp étouffée. The lobster was way overcooked, but the étouffée... More

Very disappointed after reading all of the reviews. Would not return. Server did not have a good sense of humor. Those who ordered the tuna were pleased. Those who ordered the softshell crabs were not. Crab bisque was good as well as the oysters. Not outstanding, but good. Too pricey.

Call ahead and make a reservation or you may be waiting for a table for a summer dinner. But, the food is great and the price is right!

First off, the food and waiter were excellent. My rating is based on the last impression I had of the manager that was on dutie. I did not get her name but she was petite with brown hair that was in a pony tail. We went a few days ago on a night that received 8" of rain in just... More

In 1984, Louisiana Lagniappe was opened and established inside Sandpiper Cove condominiums in what was at one time the Sandpiper Cove Yacht Club. A loyal following was quickly established due, in no small part, to the quality of the food and the attention to detail of the service. In 1998 The Southern Restaurant Group took ownership of the restaurant with a commitment to maintain the same level of food quality and service. Since then, Louisiana Lagniappe has consistently served only the freshest seafood and steaks. Now open year round, Louisiana Lagniappe is the spot for a memorable dining experience on all levels. In 1999, a second Louisiana Lagniappe was opened in the San Roc Cay Shopping and Marina Complex in Orange Beach, Alabama. Offering the same fine Louisiana seafood with a Creole flair, the attire is casual, yet an upscale waterfront dining experience is provided for the entire family.
