Had to buy a bottle of champagne because their house champagne was inferior and not included in the 50 dollars. Food was the worst i have had in destin. Most food had no seasoning and gumbo was way too salty. If they did not have a view they would be out if business. My family and i will never return.

So we read all about the location and sunset, which is all true - they have location. However, it smells like mold and the service is poor. The food was good all around. Just a bit strange - cheaper places with much better service in Destin. They just don't seem interested in their customers.

Simply stated this place is a humongous ripoff and not very good. The lobster rolls were dabs of mayonnaise with very little lobster served on a hotdog bun. Yes, hotdog buns. Two buns were $18. The taste was mayonnaise. Period. Iced tea was very watered down and had no flavor. Service and view was very good but the food was... More

We had lunch here a couple times while on vacation. The view is definitely the star. The food was good, we weren't disappointed, but we weren't wowed. They have a nice wine selection. Sadly, no frozen drinks on the menu. I got a margarita on the rocks, which hit the spot, but I had been looking forward to a pina... More

We tried vue on 30a as our last diner place for this trip down on the coast. We had the crab cakes, delicious; the scallops and pistachio crusted grouper, beautiful and the key lime mousse and cheese cake, what a way to finish. The view of the beach is making everything every better. Despite the fact there was a wedding... More

Nice beachy vibe along the dunes with old school country club style. We have come here several times and never a bad experience. I recommend the pistachio encrusted grouper or the scallops. Most seafood here is good. The wedge salad and the deconstructed Caesar are nice starters. Try to come before sunset for the money shot along the dunes.

While the view and ambiance are nice, and the service was friendly, this place does not compare with the best in the area when it comes to food selection , food overall taste, etc. Honestly everything we had to eat was boring except for an exceptional desert. We were so hoping to add to our list of go-to places for... More

We have been here a few times this winter because the food was really good and the price was exceptional due to the 2-1 specials. We are only there in the winter so do not know if those prices are year-round or not. I have celiac disease so eat gluten free. There are only 3 choices for me, but the... More
