We are so lucky to have some of the best seafood in the country right here in Destin. #GultoTable is huge here and I hope you get to enjoy just that while visiting.
Where farm meets fast food. The salad selections at Everkrisp are without a doubt the best in the area. They are large, fresh and full of nutrients. You can order from their preset menu or create your own!
Whole Foods Market Destin has much to offer if you are in need of a quick meal! You will find a large organic salad bar, a hot bar with various items including an international section. They have over 20 soups, sushi, hot pressed sandwiches and my absolute favorite is the pizza! They also have Lucky Catch Bar & Bites which features a separate menu with nightly specials and awesome prices on beer and wine.

Burrito Del Sol
I cannot say enough good things about Burrito Del Sol. This spot has been a long time locals favorite and rightfully so! Everything is very fresh and I promise you will go back at least twice while on vacation here!
The Wine Bar is a great place for a nice, low key glass of wine, apps or entrees. The wine selection is massive and they are determined to find a wine you love! They also have a wine/sprits/beer store connected to the wine bar so you can stock up for your stay here!

Authentic italian. Kid friendly. Moderate pricing. They have awesome specials. Monday is 20% off pizza and calzones. Wednesday is $2 glasses of wine and 20% off of bottles. Happy hour is daily from 3-6, 20% off bar drinks and $3 glasses of wine. The owners are from Rome. I highly recommend it.
If you are looking for a good local coffee this is your place. There aren't a lot here in Destin so I frequent Capriccio. My favorite is the cold brewed coffee. The lattes are very smooth and enjoyable as well. They also have delicious crepes (the Nutella one is amazing!) and other italian dishes on the menu.
We love Marina Cafe! Delicious, fresh seafood, steaks and sushi. The staff is hospitable and the restaurant is very clean. It is more on the fine dining side, but we did take our little one along! The view on the deck is stunning. I highly recommend going for their daily BOGO special from 5-6PM. It's a great deal.
Donut Hole is a well known breakfast spot. It isn't huge so you may wait a while if you go at peak hours. I highly recommend stopping in and picking up a dozen of their fresh donuts or one of their famous homemade pies!

Jordanos Pizza and More
Jordanos is a great locally owned italian spot. They deliver to the Miramar Beach area. There is a small dining area and of course pick up is always an option. The pizza is awesome. The wings are baked with a rub and are just perfect. Jordanos is highly recommended.
These photos need no explanation. Jesse Foy captured the beauty of Destin in a way that only he does. If you are here visiting for the first time I know our sugar sand beaches and emerald waters will leaving a lasting imprint in your mind!
