Fresh fish on crushed ice, clams, mussels and loads of fresh shrimp all sizes shell on or peeled. They have styrofoam ice chest that they will pack your fish in with crushed ice for travel. Great stop for a healthy fresh catch.

Friendly staff and good, fresh local seafood make this a must stop! Select your whole grouper or snapper and the crew will fillet and bag it, with ice. Bring cash or check - they don't accept credit cards.

Whenever we travel to Destin we always go to Sexton's. They have the freshest seafood. If you're looking for shrimp, go here. Before leaving for home we fill up on fresh shrimp for ourselves and family.
