We had driven by the Surf Hut numerous times and finally stopped in for dinner. We arrived a little before 5 and had no wait for an outside table. The view is beautiful and the setting is relaxing. There are a lot of things in the sandy area behind the restaurant to entertain the kids while you wait. Newton was our server and he was GREAT! Very friendly and helpful with recommendations. He even taught our 10 year old, the proper way to eat an oyster! (PS- she is not a fan, LOL). We had the shrimp and crab dip (yummy) and a few oysters for our appetizer, my husband had the taco trio (loved them all, but his fave was the pulled pork, which surprised him). my daughter had the cheeseburger and I had the grouper. It was fabulous! We finished up with key lime pie, which was divine! Price was a little high, but standard for the area. We are definitely adding it to the list of places to return!

I ordered a burger since it was a little cheaper than other items on the menu. The burger was dry. We were seated promptly and server was attentive. It just seems overpriced.

We were there for lunch so we didn't have a wait. There was a fun play area with life size connect four, which was a blast. I had the taco trio, one fish, one shrimp, one pulled pork all were very good and I really liked the cucumber salad. Hubby had the pulled pork and side salad and was equally pleased with choice as I was with mine.

Shrimp tacos were excellent and the outdoor play area was so fun! Burgers were mediocre at best. But it was exactly what we wanted for atmosphere! Kids meals came on frisbees they got to take home!

We went on spring break. The traffic in Destin area is pretty bad, so this was a place we could walk to. 90 minutes wait to get in but really nice indoor and beach side waiting (play area for kids, too). Once we were seated, food was served quickly and was really good. Nice fresh fish options. I recommend call ahead for reservations.
