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.

Very casual, local beach restaurant serving fresh-caught local fish, prepared just about any way you'd like. Good side dishes, perfect service and, of course, key lime pie. There were four of us and we each had something different - fried fish, grilled grouper, blackened cobia and a gumbo. All of it was fresh, tasty and nicely prepared. This should be your go-to spot when visiting the area... everything the Emerald Coast has to offer without feeling like you've been fleeced at some tourist trap (as in The Back Porch).

Great experience. Wonderful seafood. Atmosphere was great and so was the service. I was really hungry for just about everything in the sea. This place did not disappoint. That had everything I wanted and the price was very reasonable considering all that I gorged myself with.
