Great place on the beach in Destin. Nice outdoor seating and a great view. Friendly service. The tacos were outstanding. I had the trio. The pork was average but the fish and shrimp tacos were about the best that I ever had. My daughters also had fish tacos and were raving about them. Definitely a place to go back to.

Quintessential beach restaurant. On the beach, great fried seafood. We all enjoyed the crab claws appetizer. My brother had raw oysters and loved them. I had the fried shrimp sandwich which was wonderful. My brother and sister-in-law had the taco trio. They liked the pork taco but felt the shrimp taco was over seasoned. All in all, recommend, but opt for something other than taco trio.

We went around 545-6... there was a little wait to sit outside so we played cornhole in back. Beautiful view, great for family pics before dinner!

After checking into the Embassy Suites across the street, we went on beach for a walk and then on the way back we hit THE SURF HUT...We both ordered the fish tacos and a beer - it hit the spot.. We got their somewhat early.. and since there was a wait - we sat in the bar area at a high table - fine with us!..The place seems popular so plan ahead..the staff was ultra attentive..we'd go back.

Great atmosphere and views of the beach. But this restaurant overcooked all our fish dishes and really really really didn't make it right on the feedback. Stay away!
