My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Louisiana Lagniappe. He ordered a ribeye steak, baked potato and salad. I ordered grouper meunière , sautéed vegetables, and salad. All items were delicious, the servings were large, and our server, Bob, was professional and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant, with such a beautiful ocean view!

First time dining experience here and definitely will not be our last. My wife and I both ordered the Grouper Pecan which was pan seared and topped with toasted pecans and meunière sauce. Very tender, cooked to perfection and probably the best fish we have ever eaten. We had the house salad and the twice baked Creole Potato with Hushpuppies.... More

Decided to try the advertised special "Two can dine for $49 - includes a bottle of wine". We had heard this was one of the better places to dine and our friends did not steer us wrong. They open at 5 daily and we arrived at opening. Quite a few others did also. We had a table overlooking the bay... More

I have to say that this is my favorite Destin restaurant. But I always order the same thing so I can't rate other dishes. I order the Grouper Meuniere. Very rich but delicious. Meuniere on the side lightens it up and is just as good. Staff is always helpful and friendly. Overall a great dining experience. ENJOY! Hope you always... More

Great cajun cuisine in the heart of Destin. Not only does it have good ambience but great food. I would recommend the Jambalaya or Shrimp Étouffée. They have a really good early bird deal where two people can dine with a bottle of wine for $49.

First time in Destin. Got recommendations for fine dining to celebrate our anniversary. Went to Louisiana Lagniappe and couldn't believe what a great meal we had. Have been to all the major players; Ruth Cris, Chart House, McCormick & Schmick, etc. None compare to this. I had a filet that was big, perfectly done and incredibly seasoned. The stuffed baked...

In 1984, Louisiana Lagniappe was opened and established inside Sandpiper Cove condominiums in what was at one time the Sandpiper Cove Yacht Club. A loyal following was quickly established due, in no small part, to the quality of the food and the attention to detail of the service. In 1998 The Southern Restaurant Group took ownership of the restaurant with a commitment to maintain the same level of food quality and service. Since then, Louisiana Lagniappe has consistently served only the freshest seafood and steaks. Now open year round, Louisiana Lagniappe is the spot for a memorable dining experience on all levels. In 1999, a second Louisiana Lagniappe was opened in the San Roc Cay Shopping and Marina Complex in Orange Beach, Alabama. Offering the same fine Louisiana seafood with a Creole flair, the attire is casual, yet an upscale waterfront dining experience is provided for the entire family.
