Food and restaurants in Destin

Top restaurants

Irish Pub
“This is a local favorite with tons of great food options, including the best steak on the Emerald Coast! They don’t take reservations and the wait on the weekends is usually kind of lengthy, but it’s worth it. Grab an Irish Wake while you wait to be seated!”

Seafood Restaurant
“If you like to party, eat, and meet new people this is the place. There is usually a live band and a DJ. It's located in a cool part of Destin, where you can bar hop though the Harbor Walk.”

Resort
“Tons of restaurants to choose from, many of the fishing boats leave from here, dolphin tour boats as well, there are zip lines, an outdoor climbing wall, bars, live music stages, & they have fireworks every Thursday night all summer. (A little touristy for me.. but don’t let that stop you). ”

Seafood Restaurant
“Our favorite spot for a nice dinner, but it’s still casual. Their food is incredible (try the award winning Oysters Boshamps), they have a bay view, a beach out back where the kids can play, and most nights they have live music as well. The wait can be pretty lengthy as it seems to be everyone in the areas favorite spot, but you can join the waitlist by looking them up on Y3lp. ”

“Sit right on the water and enjoy the best and freshest local seafood. This is an absolute favorite of ours, especially the "boat run" shrimp. This Dewey's is better than the one on the harbor.”
