Food Scene
Saturday is steak night, and it will be one of the best steaks you'll ever eat. This is a lovely place to go for a romantic night out. This is a local spot, and one of my favorite places to eat. Enjoy a cheese plate and a glass of wine. If you're looking for a great salad, their wine bar salad is superb and you can add grouper, shrimp, or chicken to make it a meal. Easy ten minute drive from the Condo. Happy Hour is a half-carafe of wine for the price of a glass. This is also a great lunch location with half-carafe of wine for the price of a glass. Happy hour ends at 6pm.

Delicious Thai food. The secret is adding their sweet & sour sauce to everything, so make sure you ask for extra sauce. Our favorites are the spring rolls, and fried rice dishes. Casual dining and we usually order carrie out.

This place has wonderful Sushi! Other yummy options are steak and pizza. Cocktails are delicious and I usually get the "The Camille," which is a gin and grapefruit drink that is super refreshing on a hot summer day. It located above a motel, but it's a lovely place and does have a slight view of Gulf. Valet parking is available. Go early or make a reservation if available. It's a popular spot.

Delicious, artisan, quick breakfast or lunch! This place used to be only known to locals, but it's become a popular spot by tourists. If you're looking for a great spot to get a delicious, quick bite, this place offers a great selection of sandwiches, breakfast options, and comfort food. They also have great daily specials! To avoid the crowds, the secret is to call ahead and place your order by calling (850) 460-8979. Their menu is on their website at localmarketdestin.com. It's a nice place to eat there, but we normally get carry-out and eat it at the condo. They also box the carry-outs, so they're perfect to taking to the beach or have a picnic anywhere.

Great imported Italian coffee! This is a snug spot with a stylish, pared-down interior. They have an inventive menu selection of crepes, sandwiches, and desserts. It's a very friendly spot and they treat you like family, specially if you have a chance to talk to the owner. We normally go here for the coffee, and it's a great place to bring your laptop and do some work, if you're not too busy thinking about your next spot to visit in Destin.

This is one of our favorite, authentic Italian restaurants! Their dinner entrees are exquisite and their drinks are some of the best in town. Their pizzas are hand-tossed and put in brick-oven. They are delicious! If you see a guy with a pony tail, that would be the owner Mimmo himself.

While it is a chain, it does offer delicious seafood. We like it for the ahi tuna, mussels, bang bang shrimp, shrimp and scallops, and their daily happy hour from 4-6pm.

Shopping
Located across the street from the Publix shopping center. Lots of shops and restaurants to explore. Large playground for the little ones to enjoy. Bring bathing suits and towels for the kids because next to the playground is a "Splash Pad" where the kids can run through water spouts and burn energy and cool off. AMC movie theater is at this location.

Huge Outlet Mall. Tons of stores with everything you could think of to buy. About a 20 minute drive from the Condo. Traffic can get bad between 5-7pm. Instead of getting frustrated with traffic plan on having dinner around the area, and enjoying yummy food and drink and then head home after 7pm to make an easy ride back to the condo. If you don't want to stay out that late, I would plan on getting back to the condo by 4pm to avoid the traffic.

Very similar to Destin Commons, but different spread of shops and dining. If you're headed to Silver Sands for a day of shopping you can always check this area out as well, it's just down the street from Silver Sands. Lots of restaurants have happy hour specials, so get there when they usually start, between, 4-5pm, for the best food and drinks at a bargain price. The Ovation Dining Club is located here, where you can a full service dinner and drinks, while watching the latest released movies.
