We visited the Destin boardwalk and decided to give this place a shot. We were not disappointed. The cocktail drinks and fish bowls were on point and the food was good. Definitely try the snapper!

We enjoyed 2 sushi rolls, fried avocado, and the Caribbean Cooler cocktail. All of the items were recommend by our waitress, Aneatria, who was fantastic! Wonderful service. We came on a rainy night so didn't get to enjoy the view.

We took Aneatria's recommendation and had the OVO and Prime Lobster rolls. They were excellent. Fast and super friendly service with nice perks of a locals' discount and a Christmas "gift." We missed the view being here in the evening; I imagine the ambiance is...More

The only reason this place gets 3 stars is the view. First we ordered the fried avocado which was tasty, but highly over priced for the amount of food you get and honestly it really didn't seem like much effort was put into the whole...More

Jackacuda’s continues to climb the ranks of our favorite in Destin. The freshest ingredients across the board. Perfect combination menu for us ranging from fresh seafood perfectly cooked in a variety of ways to great sushi. Shrimp and grits awesome featuring Conecuh sausage.

Best shrimp and grits I've ever had. Friends said the quesadillas were awesome, too. Huge raw oysters. Only disappointment was they wouldn't give out recipes!
