A quiet Monday night in the off season on the patio. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly, made great recommendations. You get a lot of food for your money.

I was there with a large party several weeks ago. The staff was wonderful; the servers were cheerful; the bartenders were skilled. The food was well prepared and tasty. Lots of choices on HarborWalk on the Destin Harbor. This is a good one.
