Picks for Destin Restaurants 2012
Posted on 02/01/2012
On the Destin Harbor some of our old favorites are still there.
1. Harbor Docks: Like an old friend or Cheers. Everyone here knows your name. Very local and old Florida but don't forget they offer Breakfast too.
2. A.Js Restaurant. Great location and seafood menu. In the evening, it's a nightclub on the top deck. Be sure to check out their boats the Seablast and sailboat for harbor cruises.
3. Sadly the Lucky Snapper was closed. It has been replaced by a nightclub sports bar. We'll check it out and fill you in on our review later this summer.
4. Dewey Destin Seafood has the family name and history. It's set back from the water just a bit but he's menu is tops.
5. Harry T's is now located by the Harbor Walk area. Fantastic service. The manager there assisted us with our commercial you see on the site. Fun atmosphere and TVs at the bar area for your favorite game. Seats out back and up top for the sunset.
6. Another Broken Egg cafe . They have three locations now! One in downtown Destin, Sandestin, and the Vilage of Baytowne Warf.
7. Not Just Bagels . A Destin Bagel shop gem. She keeps expanding with all kinds of baked goodies and now lunch specials. Open from 6am to 3pm everyday. Stop by every chance you get.
8. Bonefish grill A very nice chain restaurant. A more fine dining place for adults. The evening atmosphere at the bar is upscale and sophisticated.
9. Callahans: Southern homemade cooking at it's finest. It's in the out parcel of the plaza near Main St. in Destin. It's tucked out of the way which is why it's so special.
10. Louisiana Lagniappe If Canjun cooking is more your style. This is an old local and visitor favorite.
11. The Back Porch last but not least. Very kid friendly with a playground on the beach out back. The view is unbeatable. Get there early for the best seat to watch the sunset.
There are certainly many other options in Destin, Florida. There are several chain restaurants for lunch at the Destin Commons and Silver Sands factory. Hopefully this list will help you get started for your Destin Dining experience.
