My personal favorite restaurant for the freshest seafood and sushi - they have non-seafood options as well. Their thai food at lunch like friend rice is also amazing. Full service bar. Outdoor seating options right on the Harbor.

I love this place, right on the Harbor - excellent seafood and as a hush puppy connisseur I think theirs are the best! They also have seafood buckets for the entire table that are quite popular.

I love Mexican food and I eat here once a week! Open for dinner only. Large restaurant so not usually a huge wait for a table. Like anywhere, go early in the summer to avoid the crowds.

A great spot for breakfast or lunch - not open for dinner. You an dine in, but I like to grab a turkey avocado sandwich and fries and eat it at the beach! An easy place to grab some beach food - order over the phone and pick it up! If they have frosted brownies, trust me and get one. Or two. Or twelve.

Get here early, the donuts sell out quicker than a Krispy Kreme! And their cakes are to die for. And if you like key lime pie....or even if you don't like key lime pie...you will LOVE their key lime pie. You can stop by and just buy a cake or a pie and it will change your life. If you see a caramel or strawberry cake, buy the entire cake and thank me later. And they also have a great breakfast. I can't get enough of the huevos rancheros.

True story - I should open a breakfast joint. They are all so busy it must be a great business! This place is good - at least it was way back years ago on a day when I could actually get a table at a breakfast place! The key is to get there early!

A crowd favorite and right next door is Maguires Pizza which is some of my favorite pizza. The only pizza that tops it is Grimaldi's but too far to drive in summer traffic!

I told you I love Mexican food and this is the real deal - a little Taqueria located inside a real Mexican market. Call in your takeout order - the steak burrito is amazing! When you pull up you might doubt me, but I KNOW my Mexican food!!!

If someone asked me my favorite restaurant in this area, this would be in my top 3 and maybe #1? It is SO GOOD! You can reserve a table on Open Table which is golden for the busy summer months. All of the pastas are handmade and for special occasions you get a cool cotton candy/sparkler delivered to your table. It's worth the drive! Read on for #2 favorite...

OMG I LOVE this restaurant - in my top 3 and probably #2. Every bite is a party in your mouth. You just can't go wrong with any menu item. The mango iced tea is so delicious and the homemade bread and butter is to die for. It's worth the drive and open for lunch or dinner!

This is a really good Mexican restaurant. Now I have to admit that it is getting a little shabby inside and they need to do some updating, but the food is really good. I like my chips really thin and they deliver. I only get fajitas or the mango salad. Seems weird to order a salad at a Mexican restaurant but this salad might change your life. For dessert trust me and order the apple pie - it comes on a fajita skillet drizzled with caramel sauce and it is delicious! You saved the calories with the salad amiright?

Grocery Stores
This is the busiest Walmart in the nation! Can you believe it? I have the app and order grocery pick-up. Plan ahead before your trip and order your groceries and not have to enter this busy store. You pull up, they load them in your car and back to the beach you go! Easy Peasy!

When we rent boats we use Luther's or Boogies and love them both. They work HARD and deliver a great service. They'll load your stuff on the pontoon, have an ice filled cooler and life jackets. Just please be careful when driving the boat, follow the rules and have the best day - it's a whole 'nother perspective to see Destin from a boat.

Fun place to go to take in the Harbor plus shops and restaurants. You will pay for parking. Thursdays are the busiest so unless you love crowds and parking far away and walking, pick another day.

If you are here for a while or during off season, I definitely recommend a day trip to 30A. Super cute little beach towns like Seaside, Alys Beach, Seagrove, Rosemary Beach and more.
