There are some amazing places in Destin for all types of food lovers.  Whether you are in the mood for seafood, Italian, American, fine dining, or somewhere as close to the beach as possible, you will find it here.

The most awarded restaurant in Destin is the Marina Café featuring fresh seafood, steaks, pasta, sushi, and wood-fired pizza.  Marina Café boasts spectacular views of Destin Harbor.

Prefer to catch your own dinner? Several Destin restaurants will cook your cleaned fish any way you like it with the sides of your choice. You can find a complete list of Gulf-to-table eateries willing to cook your catch here. Be sure to book one of Destin’s best fishing charters to take you on the water and help you catch your favorite fish. 

When you need a break from Destin’s seafood menus, visitors say you should head to McGuire’s Irish Pub. It has its fair share of Irish dishes, but it also offers steak and hamburgers, not to mention tours of its brewery and live music.

The service staff was friendly and helpful and the food was perfectly prepared and mouth-watering. Oh my, adding to a perfectly delicious meal, the cream brûlée, and key lime pie were heavenly. It doesn’t get much better than this.
