A couple last min questions

We are only days away from Destin now and since the condo issue has been resolved we are excited once again! Friends of ours recommended we check out Howl at the Moon in Fort Walton on our first night. Anyone been there on a Sunday night?

I have a list of restaurants we have compiled from recommendations on this forum and from friends recommendations:

Harbor Docks


Crab Trap

Pompano Joe's




Mello Mushroom

Donut Hole

The problem is we will only be there 5 nights and one night we will be attending a wedding. So... What would be your picks? I know Donut Hole is a bakery. Is it best for breakfast or dessert? I think we will try the Crab Trap the first night since it is next door to Howl at the Moon.

I would love to find a small beach bar to hang out at one evening. Maybe some live music. Last october when we were in Fort Myers we went to Smokin' Oyster Brewery several times. Great food, super casual atmosphere and tons of fun! Anything like that?

Yes Mrs_Weaver, we all want to know the name of the resort for when we plan our other non Destin vacations!

I think it is sad, that you can't have both, a great view and great food. The places with the great views think that is enough, and you can serve mediocre food. If people did not accept it and stayed away they would improve. Went to the Back Porch once, food and service were awful. Would not waste my money again.

If the food is bad....it means you need another drink. haha The views are amazing at Pompano Joes and Crab Trap. Hope you have a great time in paradise.
