Excellent family restaurant. Great views of the beach if you have a window seat. Restaurant can get extremely crowded so plan ahead.

The food is a little pricey but everything is a little pricey in Destin. The food was very good! The service is fantastic! Of course the location is the very best thing about this restaurant!!

Good seafood restaurant, right on the beach in James Lee Park. About a mile from Pelican's Elbow. Note that parking can be tight.

This is a good place to go if your coming off the beach. If you want to eat outside, play baggo, or just hang out, it's the place for you.. Also, family friendly and accommodates large parties.

Casual atmosphere with great view of the Gulf. Food is good but the food at Pompano Joe's is even better.

For variety of seafood selection, one of the town favorites, best seat in the house, just across the Destin Pier.

It's convenient. We don't eat much fried seafood and that seems to be the majority of the menu, but you can just walk down the beach and you can't beat that.

This place is just great because you don't have to call a cab! That is just a perk.
They serve great fresh seafood favorites. The kids meals come with a shovel and Bucket for those into adventure sand hunting. They have a full bar and offer all of this with a breathtaking view of the sugar white sands!

Seafood and oyster bar. Family-friendly, casual. Reservations not accepted, so you may expect to wait for a table during peak season. Kids can play on their beach playground while you wait! Gift shop located inside. Located at 3500 Scenic Hwy. 98 East, about one mile east of The Inn at Crystal Beach.

A beach park for the kiddos, fresh Gulf seafood like Pompano Joe's, and a little back beach bar if you have to wait for your perfect table with Gulf Views. It is walking distance if you like to exercise, otherwise plan ahead for parking during peak season since this is a hot spot on Friday and Saturdays!

It's a mixed review here. . . We love the outside bar, especially at sundown. We love how close it is, so if you want to walk to dinner, this place is the ticket. Unfortunately, we've had mixed food experiences there. I will take part of the blame though. Make sure you don't order something you don't think they can make! It will be crowded and crazy, but it is one of those places where you make memories as a family!

Look at this beautiful white sand! It came ions ago through the wash off into the rivers and then down to the Gulf when the Appalachian Mountains were like the Rockie Mountains. Come, Relax, Make Memories at Our House By the Sea, VBRO.com, property # 461184.

We always make this our first night's dinner out. So convenient you can walk - within a football field away from the Villa.
