Ocean Club must be in trouble to play "gotcha" with customers! After 13 years of commendable service, last night I joined 5 others for the 2-for-1 early dinner. The waitress failed to bring one lady her before-dinner cocktail. After dinner, the waitress asked if we wanted separate checks. Unfortunately, she failed to tell us there would be a $2 charge...

We all had grouper, and we had the crabcake appetizer. We recommend instead of the crabcake appetizer, instead get the grouper Ocean club, which includes crabmeat and shrimp. Gumbo was freshly prepared, excellent taste, includes fish and shrimp and cut vegetables, very nice. One of the few gumbos that doesn't come with the stem ends of okra included. Fine wine... More

From the moment we walked in we were greeted with warm, welcoming staff. The restaurant was beautifully decorated for Christmas. Our meals were delicious and presented in pretty fashion.- grouper almandine and fried shrimp. Tasty dessert menu and our server Chris was just great! Don't miss this little lovely place. They work hard on putting much attention to detail!

Took the family to have Thanksgiving mid afternoon. They had a short menu but enough choices for everyone. The food was good. The service was excellent. The children price at $16.00 was too high.

We've eaten here on our annual trip to Florida numerous times and it is one of our favorites. We always get the early bird special and my Chicken Piccata was delicious as usual, although it could have used a little more sauce. The bread is hot and seems to be right out of the oven. This was the first time... More

I realized after our second visit that the guys all have pink ties. Very professional, No problems when requesting gluten free. And the band was great. I'm not sure of their name though.

Absolutely outstanding in every way. We are vegan and that's a problem in many restaurants, but not at the Ocean Club. We always find Rick Ivey, a senior waiter who understands our menu requirements and manages to satisfy our vegan needs. We depend on Rick for great vegan meals. 'Emerald Gold', perhaps the best band on the coast is always... More

This is one of the more expensive restaurants in Destin, but the food, service, and wine selection are all very good. If you want a special meal this is the place, and they also have live music

Each year our group of four couples, all senior citizens, vacation for a couple of weeks in Destin, Florida. We plan our restaurants of choice well in advance with each couple choosing the evenings dining experience. The Ocean Club, one of our favorites for years, has always been chosen at least once for dinner. On Friday the 30th of September,... More

Ocean Club is one of the premier, fine dining restaurants with a variety of appetizers & entrees to please everyone. We have a Sushi bar & live entertainment Wednesdays - Saturday. Wednesday nights caters to our Locals offering them an incredible discount while enjoying one of our favorite house bands - Emerald Gold. Our food and service is top notch and we offer private rooms and outside deck for special events upon booking. We do take walk-ins but prefer that you call ahead for reservation.
