We are from the New Orleans area, the land of great food. This place gives the impression that it is New Orleans good. Mardi Gras beads handing from the ceiling, cajun and Mardi Gras music playing. The seafood was over cooked. The spinach artichoke dip...More

My wife and I have eaten here twice in one trip. We had a wonderful dinner the first night. We enjoyed it enough to come back Saturday to watch the football games on Saturday.

Love going here each year! We usually kick it off with this place when we get in town. Cold beer and great fried seafood. Love the laid back atmosphere.

Our family loves Kenny D's. We eat here every time that we are in Destin. Kenny D's is all about being a "Beach Shack/Dive Bar" and doesn't pretend to be anything different. It is comfortable and casual---the perfect place for dinner after a day on...More

The family and I dined here on a Saturday evening. We were immediately greeted with a welcoming by the hostess and were promptly seated by Mr. Kenny D himself. This place has a welcoming atmosphere and was quite busy. And, it's right across from the...More
