Top 5 (Secret) Restaurants in Destin, FL!

Updated: Apr 1

While there are many seafood spots along the gulf coast, check out these 5 local restaurants the next time you visit Destin. Best eats are hard to find!

If you live in the south off I-65, you have likely heard of the beautiful beaches of the Florida panhandle. Destin and 30A are marvelous vacation spots with white sand beaches. Destin is home to about 13,000 local residents but swells to over 400,000 during the summer months as tourists descend on the resorts. While many restaurants offer sunset views and local seafood, not all are created equal. You can find a list of seafood options anywhere on the internet, but I wanted to share my favorite spots that are often overlooked. Having grown up in Destin, these places have stood the test of time, including the pandemic. So, the next time you're in the panhandle, be sure to check one out.


I’d be remiss if I didn’t have at least one seafood option. Camille’s at Crystal Beach on old highway 98 is a local’s favorite for their fresh sushi and locally sourced fish from the nearby Harbor Dock’s Seafood Market. Their fresh catch of the day, sushi rolls and fried green tomatoes are divine. Open daily at 5 pm, they don’t take reservations during the high season, so come early to sit at the bar while you wait for one of the limited tables.
