Stopped by for a quick bite and found burger and fries tasty but nothing special. Decor a bit run down probably due to some construction around the side. I didn't dislike the restaurant but would not go out of my way to eat there again.

The food, service and drinks at this place are great. Jenny is a great waitress and Kenny himself will stop by your table just to check on your visit. The fried pickles are the best. We will come back to Destin just to come here!

This is the second year back and the food was just not as good as the year before. We had a server that just did not seem to know what to do when asked for a fork and knife. We enjoyed it so much last year just was not the same this time

Kenny D;s is on old 98 and you have to be looking for it to find it. You can bring your own wine. Indoor and outdoor dining. Good service. The hamburger was the best I have had in awhile. Perfectly seasoned. For a casual dining experience- go here.

Make sure to get the fried shrimp! Everything on the menu is fresh, and/or shipped from NOLA. I stayed in the Destin area for 4 days, and went twice...I didn't want to make a mistake and try another.

Food was good and quick. Fried shrimp were fresh and cooked perfect. Wife's crab claws were abundant. Great service and good folks.
