My family loves coming here and we are locals! My daughter loves the muscles in their garlic butter sauce and all the snow crab she can crack! The Scallops and family steamer are our go to!

Food was over cooked and not edible. Had to return shrimp multiple times and still not cooked correctly.

We chose this place based on reviews here on Trip Advisor. For these prices you would expect at least some scratch sides. Nothing here but foodservice bagged sides you'd expect from a buffet. My catch of the day was tiny (probably 4 oz) and overcooked....Great wait staff tho.More

Ate here in the past and loved it but not this time. The crab stuffed mushrooms appetizer had no crab to speak of mostly breading. The fish, scallops, shrimp and lobster were heavily spiced and lacking in flavor. I give this meal a B especially...considering the value to cost.More

Yes, a seafood restaurant without fried fish .... not that there is anything wrong with fried fish for I have eaten my share and would never turn down a fried clam strip or fried oyster. But sometimes a "steamer" is just what the doctor would...order for us who should be watching our cholesterol. And don't think that everything is steamed because they also have awesome grilled seafood too. Our waiter was attentive and accommodating. Be sure to start with the garlic bread loaf .... it is unique and will knock your socks off. The peel and eat red shrimp were fresh and plump, but beware there is a little kick to the seasoning however I enjoyed them. Everything was excellent including the King Crab legs and grilled tuna. Come hungry because the portions are large - I was served two large pieces of grilled tuna in my entre - lucky me I was able to take it home ! We will return next time we are in the Destin/FWB area.More

We had a party of four, and had great food, service, and a variety of menu options! They offered several options of dinners with shrimp and crab legs as well as a selection of steaks. The servings are very adequate, arrived in a timely manner...and were hot! A large bowl of salad was placed on the table to be served family style. The wait staff was attentive but not bothersome. Overall just a great dinner experience! It is a little pricey, but after enjoying the dinner so much we couldn’t deny it was worth it!!!!More

My daughter and I stopped in for dinner and were not disappointed. I had the lobster tail, scallops and grilled shrimp dinner for one which was delicious! The only drawback is the price at $45, when I really thought $35 would have more realistic for...the value. I also wished the restaurant offered more for my daughter who doesn't eat seafood and didn't want a steak. We wound up finding the grilled chicken on the kids' menu which worked out for her. We tried the garlic bread which was soggy so I wish they had offered bread and butter at each table. Best of all was the service, the upstairs hostess was so welcoming and friendly, as was our server. I was glad we stopped in. There's also plenty of free parking for diners.More
