We are locals so we have eaten here one other time. It's nothing fancy and doesn't claim to be. But as soon as I walked in the door I almost walked right back out. By the smell it was obvious that their kitchen hoods had not been clean in a long time, but I was tired from traveling and wanted... More

I always make sure to stop in for an oyster salad @ least twice during my 2 wk visit to Destin. It is GREAT! My daughter loves the fried shrimp and the slaw which has shrimp in it.

We love this place & come at least once every time we visit Destin (yearly) but this time the service was HORRIBLE!!! Food was delicious but my husband had to go to the counter to get service & that still didn't work even after someone came & told us our server would be right there. So after seeing 2 servers...

Nice little place in destin for fresh good seafood prepared steamed, fried , grilled or blackened. Combination platters, baskets and more. Several nice sides to choose from with shrimp slaw on most dishes too. Attentive wait staff and nice patio seating with misters for hot days.y

Disappointed with the amount of food...seemed overpriced for what you received.....Shrimp Platter is advertised as having 12 large shrimp, when actually the size was considerably smaller. Wait staff was very attentive and helpful, though.....

But the food was poor. I had the fried grouper with cheese grits. My husband had the steamed shrimp. My grouper was pretty overcooked and the cheese grits had a very weird taste. Like cheap cheese. The coleslaw has small salad shrimp in it. I didn't enjoy it at all, and neither did my husband. (And he'll eat anything usually)... More

Enjoyed the seafood platter! The fish and shrimp were great and so were the oysters! It was the kind of place I was looking for, fried seafood! I'd come back!

We stopped here the first day we arrived in Destin. It was clean and the service was very good. I had the grouper and grits. It was delicious and plentiful.
