Ashley was the best! Recommended a very nice local IPA (for which I enjoyed 2). Shrimp and crawfish Gumbo had just the right amount of kick. Shrimp, fries, hush puppies....the way they should be. Great place, great food, great people! Thank you!

The setting is breath taking, one of the best restaurant locations to watch the sunset with a glass of wine in hand. Food is great, well presented and the Happy Hour specials are a super deal. Table service to the patio could be improved.

This restaurant at the Inn at Crystal Beach is just a short walk away from the condo we were staying in so we decided to try it. We sat outside on the patio but you could have also eaten inside in the restaurant. The wait...More

And won't be the last. Parking is an issue. We arrived for Sunday Brunch and managed the last space. The restaurant room ambience wasn't remarkable other than a beautiful view of the Gulf. We usually sit at the bar, so not an issue. The bartender,...More

Sunday brunch was highly anticipated and very disappointing. Took over two hours to complete our breakfast, highly understaffed, and no follow through by staff. Food was so, so. Would not recommend! Oh yes, and the manager was “going” to make an adjustment to our bill,...More

Very wonderful and good happy hour. Able to eat outside on the patio and watch the sunset. Also, saw a pod of dolphin go by. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

Go to their website and look up Happy Hour. It will give you a list of items they serve from 3 to 6PM. We had the Hurricane Shrimp, BBQ Shrimp and Chicken Quesadilla and all were delicious.

790 On the gulf was established in June of 2009, and is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the ground floor of The Inn At Crystal Beach, 790 has become a huge favorite with locals and visitors alike! As the roots of the owners are from South Louisiana, they bring to Destin authentic dark roux Gumbos, Muffalettas, and much more! Here at 790 we continue to strive to bring to the table the freshest seafood available on the Gulf coast. Working with local seafood vendors, as well as seafood vendors in neighboring states, we have fresh fish brought in daily. Most in small quantities to insure freshness and quality. We prefer to be temporarily out of a menu item, than to compromise the quality. We look forward to you stopping by and watching the waves roll in with us....
