We went for lunch and it wasn't busy at all. We sat upstairs and had a great view of the harbor. Our food was really good. The service was very good as well.

While vacationing in Destin, my wife and I ate lunch at the original location on Calhoun Avenue. After placing our order at a window inside, we sat at an outside table on one of two docks that are part of the restaurant. My wife and I had the fried shrimp after being told that it was the most popular menu... More

Three of us had an early lunch here. We each had something entirely different and enjoyed it. It's very informal with a crowd most of the time. They offer sandwiches and salads as well as appetizers.

Love the food with great dock side dining you can get there by boat or car. We just pulled our pontoon right up to the dock.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the crew of our parasailing experience! They said it was the best place in Destin to eat lunch - right on the wharf over the emerald green ocean. The food was excellent and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Perfect!!

We are local and whenever company is in town, this is a required stop for lunch as it is uniquely Destin. Great views of the bay, the service and food are amazing. Come by boat, kayak, or car.

Go ahead and get in the line. It moves fast and the food is delicious. Fried shrimp is the best. Scallops are good and always a favorite. Get it fried, always!

My wife and I went for dinner, ordered the blue crab claws fried as an appetizer they were okay, very small. Also ordered the captains platter that was good, very large portion, really enjoyed the hush puppies everything else was your basic fried seafood platter. My wife ordered the grilled shrimp with veggies and fries, it was all mediocre. Decent... More

After reviews we decided to try it... We went with the harbor side location. I ordered the parmesan crusted fish, way too much cheese and I believe it was the shaker cheese instead of freshly grated. Service was top notch, several staff member would stop by to entertain my boys. They have a very neat outdoor waiting space and a... More
