We liked this place so much we went back another time and requested Anna for our waitress. The red shrimp were unbelievable, the entrée was the greatest and the cream Burley for dessert was the topping on the cake.

My husband and I came here with cousins while vacationing in Destin. Based on other reviews, we thought it would be very good, but we were disappointed. My Grilled Scallops looked good but had no taste at all. And the asparagus that came with them were so tough...see my pictures for how thick the asparagus were. My husband's lobster dinner... More

Went in with a group of friends and seated upstairs. The ambiance was great and the staff were super friendly. Everything is steamed or grilled. The portions are very generous. Steamer bowls are always piled high.

Went there while I was on business last week. The tuna steak ordered rare was amazing!! Some of the freshest I think Ive ever had. It came with a mango salsa on top. The rice was really bland but that's ok I didn't go there for the rice. Def a very good place!

The service here was exceptional the food was wonderful. The receptionist took us upstairs and the ambience was so good. The gumbo was very good but not too spicy. I ordered Shrimp and Pineapple with Rice. Delicious. This restaurant is a MUST EAT HERE.

The food was ok but nothing fantastic when we went. Choosing to review now as we decided not to go there again this time. Pricy for the quality.

Fun with food! We got thoroughly into our crab and shrimp feast. Seafood tasty and novelty of tackling crab legs and making a huge mess made for a memorable evening out.
