We ate a Sunday fish special once but mostly came for live music and drinks. The atmosphere was good. I don't know what happened but have seen no activity in months. I thought maybe they were just closed for the off season. Their website is...More

Husband and I brunched Nov 2, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Firstly, our server was friendly and fairly prompt. Hubby had a crabmeat omelette and was pleased with the amount of crabmeat and the size of the omelette itself. It was accompanied by perfectly cooked asparagus...More

Really well prepared food. Specializes in seafood. Worth the drive from Sandestin area. This and Louie Louie are best restuarants for couples who do not want to do toward Destin.

The atmosphere is a very beach-y elegance (if that makes sense...shorts are fine to wear so not that elegant). Food is so good, especially the grouper entree and the swordfish (and I am not normally a swordfish fan). Service is great. Occasionally have live music...More

Named one of Florida's Top New Restaurants by Florida Trend Magazine and voted by some 40,000 participants the top 30A Restaurant Hot Spot, Grayton Bar & Grill delivers a modern take on the deep south. It is casual fine dining at its best and serves everything from local Oysters on the Half Shell to Whole Grilled Snapper a la Criolla (for those who remember) to Aunt Irma's Buttermilk Pie. There are mouth-watering burgers but also plenty of gluten-free and vegetarian options. At the nightly Happy Hour and beyond, there's an inviting and friendly bar scene where the craft beer offerings are keeping pace with the wide variety available. Specialty cocktails include, among many creative others, the ClooneyRita, a margarita made with George Clooney's Casamigos' Tequila Blanca, fresh-squeezed lime juice, a hint of agave nectar and a wave of Cointreau. This establishment is enjoyed by locals and visitors alike and often features live music.
