I'm really surprised at the bad reviews for this place. We were on vacation and ended up having to spend an extra night in Destin due to a storm that came through.

There was no seafood, the bars were messy, the floor was disgusting, the bins were scraping the bottom, and it was... More

Variety of food you would expect at Golden Coral. We enjoyed our visits during our extended stay in the area. We found the food tasty, served fresh, and had a variety for different tastes. Service staff was attentive and customer oriented. Facility was clean, well maintained and a good place to talk while enjoying your meal.

The sign inside stated that Brunch ran from 9 am to 2 pm. We arrived about quarter to 11. At 11 am all the serving tables were changed over to Lunch/Dinner. We went there for the BRUNCH. Overall, the food was good, but was looking forward to the BRUNCH.
