This is always my first stop when visiting Destin. Love the outdoor seating, food is great and service has always been friendly. Enjoy having lunch here, and love their Happy Hour specials as well. Beautiful location right on the beach.

I have lived in this area for 3 years, but just discovered this place a few months ago. Lunch is 11-3 and that is when we go. They have a variety of food, which is reasonably priced. They have a lot of seafood and non-seafood...More

Happy hour here everyday from 3 to 6. Sat out on the ocean front patio. They have quite a few tables with umbrellas. Drink and appetizer specials everyday. Hidden gem!

Had lunch as we came in from the beach. Very good food. Tasted fresh. Great service. Wife and daughter had the bottomless mimosas. Very comfortable and unhurried.

Fantastic happy hour. There are different appetizers on special every night. Plus drinks. I chose the tacos and margaritas. Both were delicious but the key lime pie was the best I've had!! Great view with inside or outside seating.

We went for lunch. Apparently there are specials every day but we missed them. The food was very good. We ordered the seafood gumbo which was not great and the bowl of soup was $15 which we didn't realize. Service was great. Call ahead for...More

I really don't know. We used them for beachside service. They will serve to beach chairs in front of the house we rented. Good Luck!

790 On the gulf was established in June of 2009, and is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Located on the ground floor of The Inn At Crystal Beach, 790 has become a huge favorite with locals and visitors alike! As the roots of the owners are from South Louisiana, they bring to Destin authentic dark roux Gumbos, Muffalettas, and much more! Here at 790 we continue to strive to bring to the table the freshest seafood available on the Gulf coast. Working with local seafood vendors, as well as seafood vendors in neighboring states, we have fresh fish brought in daily. Most in small quantities to insure freshness and quality. We prefer to be temporarily out of a menu item, than to compromise the quality. We look forward to you stopping by and watching the waves roll in with us....
