My husband & I took my 12 & 14 year old niece & nephew for dinner in the evening around 9PM. There was a live band & the atmosphere was too much fun. We enjoyed our food, service & the live band. The ambiance is really neat full of colorful art pieces. The food is just as great!

When we entered the place was fairly empty so despite great reviews I had some reservations. However the food and service were excellent. We had the Brussels sprout appetizer and seafood on cheese grits with an incredible ragout. Both were amazing and the music was just the right volume for talking and listening. The decor keeps your attention as it is funky like the name says.

Monday nights are the home of the Emerald Coast Blues Group hosted by EdMo and Gwen D’Vyne with varied guests. Great night! Bring your family and introduce them to real music while you have dinner. There is even a little space to dance.

Let me start by saying I came to this place by accident. I was looking for a bar close by my hotel but really I was starving and in the mood for a bar burger. I wasn't even in the mood to drink. Well, the place sucked me in as soon as I walked through its funky doors. The vibe was very chill, lounge-y, and had a speakeasy feel to it. I loved the blues artwork. My burger was cooked & seasoned perfectly. Great selection of beer and cocktails and both bartenders that served me, Zach & Mitch, were very personable, attentive and made me feel like I had been coming there for years! It's truly a pleasure when you meet nice people but even better people that enjoy their jobs and welcome you with a smile!! I spent almost every night of my vacation at Graffiti and wish I had more time in Destin to catch their nightly lineup which was consistently good and always different. Best part, no snobby people, no drunken fools, good level for talking without shouting and actually hearing the other person. I will miss you til my next trip. You guys are AWESOME!!!
