116 Harbor Blvd., Destin
popular in the afternoon starting about 2 or 3pm to watch the fishing boats come in with their catch, or to watch the sunsets. If on a budget, you can just sit on the docks and watch!

This is "old Destin", a dock sitting over the water with waves splashing. Good music, fun time, fresh oysters and award-winning gumbo!
404 Harbor Blvd. (Downtown Hwy. 98)
Presently 5-6pm one free entree with purchase of another of equal value! Watch the dolphins and boats and the sunset over the water. Our favorites are Grouper cheeks for an appetizer, Panko crusted redfish, and Pasta with tasso ham. It is fine-dining in casual Destin attire.

Most boat captains agree that Harbor Docks and Dewey Destin serve the freshest fish in Destin, and if a boat captain eats there, it's gotta be! Fish sandwiches, dinners and Sushi. Lunch also has excellent Thai food!
