The Other End

I love the vibe of this place. A great atmosphere (outside) and an attentive staff. They know and like the beers they are pouring which is a plus. This was the first place I heard of and tasted beer from the very new Destin Brewing. The food is great, too, though don't come expecting something fancy. We almost always make our way there after finishing dinner elsewhere because we like the ambience. They were cool with my dog, too, and I appreciate that. Recommend figuring out where the bathrooms are before you tie one on, though. That part can be tricky.
Great craft beer selection, with 16 options on tap. As far as food, wife and I had the grouper sandwich, which was the fresh catch that day. Probably the best grouper I've ever had, and I'm one picky son of a bitch. Great, knowledgeable server, great food, and great beer. Truly a hidden gem- hopefully it doesn't get too well known anytime soon.
FWIW, l've only drank at The Other End, even if the food does look awesome. Beautiful patio views of the harbor. Check. Laid back, locals-friendly atmosphere. Check. Dog-Friendly. Check. Around a dozen taps with local and national craft brews. Check. Decent enough vino for a beer joint. Check. Boat Parking. Done.

Reviews:
Unbelievably delicious authentic Thai cuisine with plenty of healthy options for the health conscious individual. The place was spotless and clean, the service was friendly with knowledgeable staff and the prices could not be beat. I will definitely back. This place is not to be missed!
Great pad thai! One of the best I have enjoyed in Northwest florida. Good portion for the price & the tofu was grilled not deep fried which was a nice surprise. Will be back for fresh rolls & sticky rice!
I had the mouth watering crispy Pompano fish topped with red curry and exotic herbs! Very tasty and flavorful...do not miss this gem! My friend had the Thai Basil...delicious as well. Place was clean and service was excellent! I love that the chef takes pride in his craft. It is fascinating to see how every dish is presented to the guests!!!

I just love this place. It is your traditional fro - yo joint, but the flavors and toppings are great and the location is great for sitting outside. The girls aren't the apathetic teenagers you meet at most Destin businesses. I even like their music selection most of the time. The only way this place could be improved is if they could figure out how to make coffee, and if they offered high chairs.
It's all good! Self serve frozen yogurt, flavors are always rotating. Today I had Blueberry and Raspberry with almonds, coconut, and granola on top-YUMMY... Price is determined by weight and they offer a punch card, I think it's buy 10 then get 1 free. Today was my freebie-Yay! The shop is always clean and the staff always friendly, huge bonus :)
I think this was the first self-serve Yogurt & Toppings Buffet places in Destin, and they still don't disappoint. The staff is always very upbeat and polite. You can't go wrong with with all the foodie mad science happening in here.

We have found heaven!
These people know how to operate a B&B! I love kids but it's nice to be away from not only our kids at times but everyone else's too. This place provides that, no little kids or teenagers, private beach area. Delicious food. I can not overemphasize how good the food is. Everything needed for complete relaxation is to be found here. We'll worth the money.
Please give the Henderson Park Inn ten stars for us. My wife and I enjoyed four wonderful days laying on the beach being pampered by the fantastic Henderson staff. Complimentary breakfast, box lunch and happy hour! No kids, no pets, no one under 25 sorry!! We're scheduling a return trip soon or maybe we'll never leave!!!

Brusters Ice Cream

4655 Gulfstarr Dr
Destin, 32541
Reviews:
Excellent ice cream, but I would love it if they offered smaller portions. The smallest cup they have is still waaaay more than I can enjoy in a single sitting anymore, but I soldiered through. You probably want to get here early, this place gets PACKED as the evening wears on. Its unbelievable. Hot dogs are decent too(Nathan's), if you want a small and cheap meal before you dive into the decadence! Just note that they stop serving them at 8pm.
Wow! Extreme sugar rush! We had decided to go find a place for ice cream after dinner. Yelp had the answer again. Bruster's is some of the best ice cream I've had in a long time. I had a waffle cone with New York Cheesecake ice cream, and my hubby had a banana split. The banana split was big enough to share. I am posting a photo of it. I highly recommend Bruster's if you're craving ice cream. :-)
Very good ice cream. It was packed but plenty of sitting spots. This is an outdoor establishment only. The prices were a little bit high.

Mimmo’s Ristorante Italiano

979 Us Hwy 98 E
Destin, 32541
Reviews:
It's not often I give 5 stars, but it was an excellent meal from beginning to end. At first I thought the prices were a bit high but as soon as the child's portion of fettuccine Alfredo came out, I was convinced that not only was it will priced, it was high quality. The service was great, very friendly and helpful as well as attentive. Fresh warm bread was brought out with seasoned olive oil, and it was difficult not to fill up on that alone. Then the garlic knots, came... whew, hard to stop eating the butter, garlicy, cheesy goodness. The eggplant parm was perfection as was the fettuccine alfredo. Our server recommended the Scalloppine del mio amore (chicken, artichokes, mushrooms, pancetta, buttery caper sauce) and it was wonderful, with the chicken cooked perfectly and the sauce soaked up by perfectly cooked pasta. We had to get dessert as we're fans of dessert and the tirimisu did not disappoint. I can't wait until we go back.
So far beyond a tourist spot! If you love and cherish fine cuisine, you can search high and low, you will not find better! I visit Destin frequently for vacations. However, my vacation is not right until Mimmo's is involved. It is a small quaint family owned restaurant that cares for their product. Attention All Foodies: You must eat here!
I can't bring myself to give away five stars or I would! Service: Mackenzie was so great! Very nice and left a good amount of time between our courses so we could digest and relax. Food: I got the linguine corleone and my husband got the linguine vongole and both were pretty good and reasonably priced. As an appetizer we got the calamari and garlic bread and wow it was AWESOME. Yes the garlic bread is an appetizer on the menu so there is an extra cost involved but totally worth it! Overall we would come back again the atmosphere is also very nice!

The Loggerhead Grill

Reviews:
My husband and I just moved into the area (Air Force). We were hesitant to head to Destin because of the all the tourists right now but we had some friends that wanted to check it out. I am glad we decided to pass on the many touristy restaurants that litter the harbor. This little food truck is no joke! I wish I could eat here everyday. The menu is small, but it's a food truck so that's to be expected. I personally had the fish sandwich and the fish of the day was mahi mahi. (They also had Amberjack as a fish of the day option). You can either have it with an Old Bay mayo or a house made tartar. I had the Old Bay, hubby had the tartar. Both were phenomenal! They also have shrimp and fish tacos which were the best I've ever had! Flavors are perfect! And if you don't like seafood they do have regular sandwiches like grilled cheese and turkey. After you order you have a seat at some tables that are right on the dock and they bring the food over to you. Beside the fantastic food the owner and staff were great! Such nice people. She offers a military and locals discount. And she really was a very nice person. Fantastic fresh food! Great owner! Perfect location and view. This place gets a double thumbs up from this girl and I cannot wait to go back! Yum!!
In the hustle and bustle in touristy Destin, FL, there are a few places untouched by the non-local populace. One of those is the food truck right on 302E Harbor Blvd just right past Harbordocks, Boathouse, and The Red Door. (AKA, The Quiet Side of Harborwalk Village) What I like about this place is that the owners are humble and want to serve good ol' food right out of their food truck for drunken passer-bys to help them avoid the probable hangover the next day. Nothing more and nothing less. They are opened from 12 pm until whenever the drunkards pass out. The fish tacos are fresh with a nice dollop of homemade coleslaw on top and served with a fresh batch of fried tortilla chips and mild or mango habernero (which could be more spicy, in my opinion) salsa. It's reminiscent of something that you would make at home and does have a nice personable touch to it. The feeling is comforting and not touristy at all. Aside from this is that you get prime waterfront seating. They have tables right on the dock and so any seat that you can get feels like you are a fisherman...or a drunkard right on the pier. I haven't seen an official website, but they do have a Facebook page: facebook.com/TheLoggerhe…
Awesome little food truck! Loggerhead is one of the last establishments on the harbor after you pass Dockside and Red Door. It's a little kitchen built into an Airstream trailer and they have a bunch of picnic tables on a dock extending into the harbor just like Dewey Destin's on the bay. I ordered a piping hot grilled ham & cheese with a Beach Blonde Ale from the local 30A brewery. Try the fresh tortilla chips with their mango salsa. Service was awesome, if you're not a local they'll make you feel like one. The ambiance was the greatest thing about this place, they had Dave Matthews and some classic rock playing over the speakers and you can just chill on the dock watching the boats come in. No one will rush you especially late at night when everyone else has stopped serving food.

Buck’s Smokehouse

303 Harbor Blvd
Destin, 32541
Reviews:
One of the waitresses had a Buck's shirt that said "almost famous", that's true they need to work on a couple of minor items and they will be there; 1st don't miss the tuna dip, it is served cold and was $6.95 on special regularly 9.95. If you have a cooler get one for the road/beach. One of the guys working there said it has 8oz of yellow fin tuna included and a number of the other restaurants buy it from them to serve. Here is where my first suggestion comes in, ditch the off brand saltines and complement with a better brand. 2nd ordered two pulled pork sandwiches $6.25 each - plenty of perfectly cooked meat but here is the biggest miss at the restaurant - the sauces. I believe they have 3 - a sweet, a hot and a mustard base. Tried all three, none of which were memorable. Also got a full rack of ribs $23.99 again cooked perfect. Took my own advice and got a tuna dip to go.
One of the best. I worked as a cook at a BBQ restaurant and have toured around finding some of the best spots Texas, Memphis and the Carolinas have to offer. Bucks offers the best sausage I've tried as well as the best brisket I've had outside TX. The pulled pork is second to none too ( I went back two nights in a row)! Lastly, they don't overlook their sides either; probably the best beans and coleslaw I've tried. Enjoy!
Great, no frills location, but everything you want in a BBQ joint....good blues music and fantastic food. I got the brisket and pork combo (also comes with 2 sides). Brisket was fork-tender, and both meats had a great smokey flavor. Wide-array of sauces available (mustard based, a sweet tomato based, and even an Alabama white that had a nice peppery spice to it). Chose coleslaw and potato salad as the sides. The slaw was a typical, sweeter type version, and was solid. Potato salad was somewhat unique in it's peppery taste, and I loved it. I've been vacationing in Destin for 30 years, and Buck's is going to be a mainstay from here on out.

Yogurt Mountain

Reviews:
Yogurt Mountain is everything you expect a good froyo place to be. Lots of flavors. Lots of topping variety (love the whipped cream). Lots of seating. Location is easy to find. Although it is a good froyo place it's nothing super special that will blow your mind. It's a solid froyo place and definitely worth a try if you're craving froyo in destin. Atmosphere 5 stars (nice and clean) Food 4 stars Price 4 stars (average prices)
Best Frozen Yogurt Ever!!! My wife and I hated to admit this place was better than our local yogurt place in Tennessee but man we loved it!!
What a fun place and a great concept Select a size...fill with as much ....or as little.... of up to 16 different flavors of soft serve yogurt...then top with as little..or as much and as many... of the 30ish toppings and syrups...weigh and pay for exactly what you want. Really wish more ice cream places would follow this example

Sexton’s Seafood

601 Harbor Blvd
Destin, 32541
Reviews:
We liked Blalock's a lot better. I came here on a Sunday afternoon and it smelled fishy. The staff said they get the seafood from boats all through the day. The thing is, do they if it is Sunday? And do what are they going to do with the whole counter of shrimp that are sitting out currently if they are about to close? A good seafood place does not smell fishy. I made the shrimp we bought that night and they didn't seem very fresh. I have tried other local seafood shops and they were fresher and less expensive. They are cash only if you still decide to go.
Excellent seafood...I do think it is a bit pricey considering it is fresh local fare and there is no transporting, etc... $50 for 1 pound of lump crab meat, 1 pound of shrimp and 1 pound of bay scallops. With that said, the scallops, shrimp and lump crab we got there was all fabulous! No "fishy" smell at all. The huge scallops we purchased smelled so clean and fresh...living in Memphis, TN, I have forgotten what real fresh seafood smells like..IT DOESN'T! :) Anyway, they also will package it up for you in a cooler for the road on ice. Very friendly prompt service. Skip the others...this one is the real deal. My husbands family has only gone here for years!
They win the prize for most variety of shrimp. prices aren't the cheapest really. it depends on what you get. it's not fair to compare apples to apples because the shrimp variety varies from place to place. the shrimp we got was good. I would have given four stars, but they're not as friendly or helpful as the place down the street. and there's not a lot of extras (spices, etc). the smell didn't bother me too much. it's a seafood market. it's supposed to smell.
