Where is a good place to eat on the water?

My family is coming down and we always like to go out to dinner somewhere that has an ocean view. Anyone have any suggestions??

The Back Porch! And a lot of places along Harborwalk have a nice view, also.

AJ's on the deck. They serve food up there until a certain time. Thursday nights you can watch the airplane show.

Bud and Alleys on 30A also is a great spot, but a bit of a drive from Destin.

Back Porch is fun for the kids, right on the beach.

Harborwalk, IMO, is a typical ugly large skyrise that belongs somewhere in Miami or Vegas and should never have been built in Destin, let alone sitting right out into the Harbor. If you are not familiar with the area, its the monstrous castle they built right at the foot of the destin bridge. It doesnt have a traditional beach feel at all. But, hey, lots of people here seem to like it, so drive by and judge for yourself. You certainly cant miss seeing it.

Maybe because they have the view they don't have to work so hard to get the crowd in.

Few weeks ago we went with a group to Deweys Harborside and everything was wonderful - from the Crab Claws to my Trigger - all great.

We like Captain Dave's stuffed shrimp. Great view throught the windows. Close enough to touch, but you do not have to melt or blow away while enjoing your dinner.
