The best fresh seafood in the area. Recommend by the local residents. Everything is steamed to perfection. The landmark house salad dressing is outstanding and the only dressing available. Do not miss it! The red headed shrimp taste and look like large scampi. Delicious. The...More

Disappointed this trip by food preparation in particular. Ordered steamed King crab and shrimp and it came out very stringy and unable to get it out besides cutting open and shredding it out. Definitely not worth the $50.00 price tag! Shrimp was delicious. Some items...More

The interior of this place is funky and the music is bluesy. Five stars for that. We were there early, so we had great service. However, this was the most expensive place we ate while in the area and the food just wasn't great.

We went there on Sunday, early evening, great atmosphere, very friendly staff, and the food was excellent, I was a little surprised at the overall cost of dinner, but again the food was great. !!

One of the best meals we had while in Destin but be prepared to pay for it. It was also by far the most expensive. Everything we had was very good and the waiter there was incredibly helpful and nice!

Took the extended Family here for what was supposed to be the best Of the Emerald Coast. Food was ok at best. Seasoning on seafood missed the party. The ambiance was that of a bar....very dark inside. Should not advertise as family friendly. We have...More
