An acquaintance told me this restaurant had been her favorite place to dine in Destin. She has a catering business and knows quality food, so I knew my husband and I needed to check it out. I'm so glad we did! We sat outside since it was a pleasant evening weather wise. We had a perfect view of the harbor... More

My husband and I ate here twice during our 7 day stay in Destin. The food is amazing. we loved he atmosphere, location, service and extensive seafood menu choices. I don't think you could order anything that isn't delicious. The cheese grits and stuffed baked potato are great side choices. Our waiter was very attentive and our drinks stayed filled.... More

Louisiana Lagniappe was the perfect venue for our rehearsal dinner. The private room was ideal for our group of 22, and Chris was unbelievably helpful. He worked with us on the planning of the menu and room setup, and worked tirelessly during the event to make sure everyone was taken care of. He even escorted the group outside and took... More

This was the only place we found where we could get live whole lobster steamed, and it was done right. Affordable wine list. Great service in upscale dinning atmosphere that's welcoming to adults and children alike. They even have a kids menu.

We love this place!!! I always get the Oysters Lagniappe, and they never disappoint. Tonight Bob and Travis took care of us at our table that overlooked the water, and they were fantastic! Best servers we have had so far. It was a busy night and we waited about 30 minutes at the bar for a table, had drinks, and... More

One of the more expensive tourist traps in Destin. Food was average, nothing to get excited about, but the prices were that of a fine resturant. Order the bottle Prosecco ($20 some dollars) and you get "Oh, I'm sorry. We have been out of that one for a couple of weeks, but we do have a bottle of Brut for... More

My husband and I started frequenting this restaurant when we started dating 10 years ago. We are now still going there with our two daughters every time we visit Destin- at least 4 times a year. The wait staff is just as amazing their food is. My favorite is the "fruit cup" appetizer they bring kids while you are waiting... More

In 1984, Louisiana Lagniappe was opened and established inside Sandpiper Cove condominiums in what was at one time the Sandpiper Cove Yacht Club. A loyal following was quickly established due, in no small part, to the quality of the food and the attention to detail of the service. In 1998 The Southern Restaurant Group took ownership of the restaurant with a commitment to maintain the same level of food quality and service. Since then, Louisiana Lagniappe has consistently served only the freshest seafood and steaks. Now open year round, Louisiana Lagniappe is the spot for a memorable dining experience on all levels. In 1999, a second Louisiana Lagniappe was opened in the San Roc Cay Shopping and Marina Complex in Orange Beach, Alabama. Offering the same fine Louisiana seafood with a Creole flair, the attire is casual, yet an upscale waterfront dining experience is provided for the entire family.
