On the beach restaurant with wonderful outside seating and views. Classic beach eats and drinks. Great gathering spot right by Seascape resort complex.

My sister owns a condo about 1.5 miles from Whale's Tail and recommended it when several in our group were looking for a great place for crab legs. So we walked down here around for an early dinner/late lunch. They were in the middle of lunch service and we didn't know the menu was different. No crab legs for lunch... More

This bar/restaurant is located right on the beach and offers picnic table seating on the outdoor patio. Great for watching sunsets. They have a happy hour menu during the winter months that is pretty hard to beat, price wise, but the food and service are pretty basic. We had a small draft ($1.25) and wings (5 for $4.50). The waitress... More

After a long walk up the beach, delighted to find that the Whale's Tail is also open for breakfast. Closes at 1030 for half an hour until reopens at 1100 for lunch. Decent coffee, friendly staff, huge portions. Omelets made with 3 eggs range from 9.99 to 12.99 but they are huge. Tried the shrimp omelet, it was good. Other... More

But still offered specials! Grouper was to die for, wings a bit over cooked but overall good and reasonable food for first night after traveling.

Pretty much what you'd expect at a restaurant right on the beach. Not fancy, not expensive. Good food. Great location.

I enjoy walking up to Whale's Tail for lunch when staying at Majestic Sun. It's a great place to sit and enjoy the beach views while eating lunch. They serve a good breakfast, but I would choose another place for dinner in Destin.

Right on the beach complete with gulls crying and looking for handouts. (Lots of "Don't Feed the Birds" signs...don't encourage them!) very tasty food served hot. The breaded items were lightly breaded which allowed the fish/shrimp/calimari to shine through. Liked that a lot! I had a pan fried grouper sandwich with lemon pepper and a side of coleslaw. Fish done... More
