Fresh seafood, friendly staff and helpful cooking hints! I have never cooked Snapper Wings; actually never heard of Snapper Wings until today. Highly recommended by the staff and I am glad they did! Delicious grilled or fried. Enjoy!

The place is the best for seafood to take home. I have been getting seafood from them since 1984. The place has changed but not the quality of the seafood. They will pack it in ice for you.

We shopped here years before and had a good experience so we came back this year. We went twice this trip to buy shrimp and both times we were pleased with our purchase. If we go back to Destin, we plan to shop there again.

Staff were wonderful in helping us pick out our fresh catch to take home while camping at Camp Gulf. They also recommended Capt Chris of Sea Winder to charter a fishing trip. Both are impeccable. Highly recommend Sexton's for your fresh catch and Capt Chris...More

If you are in Destin, Fort Walton Beach, or Sandestin this is still best freshest seafood market around. Not cheap except for the head on fresh shrimp, but still worth every penney. They dont take credit cards, but they do have an internal shop ATM...More

They had 4 or 5 different types including 1 peeled and a few with heads and tails. I think they were $9.99 a pound up to $15.99 or so based on size. We got the larger ones as we were grilling them.
