Default Places to eat - Sandestin?

I'm going to Sandestin in 2 weeks for the first time in about 14 years. I imagine a lot has changed since back then. What are some must eat places I need to check out?

Girlfriend is insisting we eat at the Crab Trap.

I love Sandestin, Destin, Miramar Beach. I would avoid Dewey's. One of the most overhyped grease traps there is. Our favorite restaurant down there is actually Aegean Greek Restaurant believe it or not. We always get the Souvlaki Diner.

Fat Clemenza's also has very good pie. I know you were probably looking for seafood recommendations, but I figured I'd share my favorites. I'll usually pick up some Gulf Shrimp and do it myself while I'm down there.

If you are headed there via I-10 get off near Pensacola and head on down to the Flora-Bama. http://www.florabama.com/ From there you can tae a 2 hour scenic drive on to your destination.

I mostly only know about places to the East off of 30A, but here are a few of my favorites.

- Red Bar is a little far away from Sandestin, but very good
- Stinkys Fish Camp in Santa Rosa, awesome in my opinion and not too far away
- If you venture all the way into Seaside, Bud and Alley's is a little overpriced in my opinion. But the rooftop patio bar is amazing and the best view you're gonna get anywhere. Seaside also has some pretty cool almost food trucks that line the road, and its a neat place to just walk around, grab some food, and then get some drinks. My girlfriend thought it was great.

Those are just a few suggestions, but I think anything off of 30A would be a good bet. I don't know as much about things to the West of Sandestin unfortunately.

Default Re: Places to eat - Sandestin?

Since I live here and eat out alot...let's ask a very important question, what food type are you looking for?

I have lived here for 17 years and yes it has changed a lot. Deweys has a new location on the harbor and better food. But I don't eat there because there are more better places. I would not limit yourself just to sandestin (I would include Destin too). Here is a link that may help: https://www.google.com/search?q=rest...e=&safe=active

If you haven't been to Grand Harbor, there's Mitchells Fish Market, Tommy Bahama, Cantina Laredo etc. down the street close or in Baytown is elephant walk, Seagar's, Acme Oysters.

If I can help more, send me a PM.

Beautiful part of the country. I had one of the best steaks I have ever eaten at McGuires Irish Pub in Destin. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

If I may make one suggestion, take an afternoon/evening and spend it in Baytowne Wharf. Its a lot of fun. Every Wednesday night they have a free concert series. They have lots to do there, a variety of restaurants, a pier with an incredible view, Hobrau Haus Beer Garden, ect.
