Great crab legs and great service. Building is rustic but food was great! Potatoes and corn sides were very good. Happy hour beer very reasonable!

We have been going here for years. It was a great local stop for us to avoid the crowds. It has been discovered. The food is good and proportions are good but the prices are a little inflated now that people are showing up. Do not get me wrong on this. You will like the food but it is not... More

We decided to try it after years of driving by. We went for lunch on Saturday. They have several tv's available for watching football! We are locals now & they have a new year-round locals menu(new owners want to show appreciation for locals). We decided to try the sampler. It had fish, shrimp, tuna dip & cheese sticks. It was...

Had a large party on a Tuesday night. All you can eat crab was wonderful! Coleslaw was the best I've had in years. Kids meals had very limited options. Every time the we asked the waitress for something she responded," Let me finish what I'm doing first." We will definitely go back because of the food.

We love Elmo's and have for the past 15 years. Over the years, they have gained a following that is well deserved. We had the fried shrimp plate at dinner. The sides are delicious and we are particularly partial to the new potatoes, slaw & corn on the cob. Don't miss this jewel in Santa Rosa Beach's crown!

While on vacation in Destin my fiancé found this local hidden gem while looking for places to have crab legs. When we pulled into the gravel parking lot full of cars I knew this was the place. While fighting for a parking spot we eventually decided to join the other cars parked along side the infamous 30A highway. After a... More

Excellent! Best snow crabs in Destin, all you can eat for a great price! This restaurant is no comparison to the tourist traps downtown. It is a hidden gem that anyone who loves seafood must visit!
