  • Destin, Florida

    We are going to Destin in 2 weeks. I think we are about 10 minutes or so from Ft. Walton Beach. Any "Tried and True" restaurants that you know of. It's always nice to have a few places to eat that someone has tried. Any other fun things or attractions would be good, too. Thanks!!

    Re: Destin, Florida

    Sorry, can't help w/ eateries, but I was there a few Januarys ago w/ babe. We were traveling to places where we thought we might like to retire and babe had spent some good times stationed at Ft. Walton Beach in the Air Force.

    We were there less than a year (but longer than 6 months) after whatever hurricaine devastated the area. It broke our hearts to see so many houses gone and roads destroyed.

    The beaches were breathtaking tho. We stayed in a hotel w/ a FREE happy hour every night and full beautiful breakfasts every morning. We took advantage!!

    BTW... we ended up in the last of 3 places we investigated for places to retire... IF and WHEN we ever GET to retire... we're here... in the Ozarks of Arkansas!!

          I second the Another Broken Egg, and possibly McGuires if you like an Irish pub. I believe the original McGuires is in Pensacola, but they have another one in Destin. Destin is a lovely place I hope you enjoy it.

              Denise-We love Destin and have been there several times. McGuires is good but plan on a loooong wait and it is a bit pricey. Great fish and chips, tho!
              We really enjoy Callahan's Deli. It's a great eat-in or take out place. They've won awards for their chili and it is awesome! (I know, chili on the beach in July??? It's good, tho!) In fact we've tried to duplicate it but can't quite 'get it'!

              What my kids love is the Whataburger that's just over the bridge before Holiday Isle. They love Whataburger in AZ and were almost as thrilled about having them in FL as they were having the beach out our front door!!!!
