The food was amazing!! My husband and I had the raw oysters, grouper and shrimp and grits. Our server T.J. was on point with his menu recommendations. We love it so much, that we are going back tomorrow for dinner before heading on to our next vacay destination! ❤️

We haven’t had any good food since getting in to Destin. This place has good food and our server was also very sweet and helpful. We would definitely go back again!

The food here was over the top, Extremely fresh, flavorful and nicely prepared.
BUT even better than the food was our server, Jon R. and the Executive Chef (do not remember his name). Both gentlemen were extremely accommodating and went out of their way to ensure that everything was perfect, so we would have a great experience, My wife has several food allergies, so the chef came out first to talk to her and altered a recipe for her so she would have something delicious to eat.
If you travel to the Destin area, do not miss going to this restaurant, Remember to ask for John R.!

After many visits to Destin we had a recommendation to try Brotulas. We did and it’s our second visit this trip.
Twice I have had the Cobia and it did not disappoint. My husband had the shrimp and grits. I highly recommend both! The crab fingers for an appetizer was over the top! Try It! Brooks was our waiter and he was so attentive and engaging! Ask for him! The back deck or the best seats in Destin. I highly endorse this place!
