The seafood is excellent and isn't too expensive. Great portions and its all very good! The restaurant is right on the beach so the views are great! Great food, fair prices, and great view... definitely a place to visit for the beach!

We visit this restaurant everytime we come to Destin. I love the atmosphere and the hush puppies are so good, I also love their shrimp and scallops.

Stayed in Destin for a week and this was our favorite restaurant for dinner. It is located directly on the beach, Gulf side. A really fun atmosphere, great service and fresh, delicious seafood. Definitely going back.

Fresh food and nice staff. The view was nice and the food matched. They even have a cat. A little pricy but worth it.
