7 Restaurants in Destin That Every Tourist Must Visit

 Tucked away on Florida’s Emerald Coast, the town of Destin is a wonderful place to spend your vacation. Surrounded by beach towns with lovely names like Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach, WaterColor and Seaside, the entire 30A corridor has been turned into one foodie haven by the sea, er, gulf. Below you can find a list of the some of the Destin’s best restaurants.

1) Harbor Docks has a full menu of superb food that includes seafood, sushi and other dishes. If you feel like going for the fresh, this is the right restaurant for you. During the spring and summer, it is one of the most happening night spots in town. The restaurant is one of Destin's oldest and most successful dining establishments.

2) Callahan's is the place where the locals go because of the generous sized portions, fresh food, and the care that is used in its preparation. This place is a fine selection of wines, beers, and spirits. It is not on the beach and doesn't draw a crowd but what you will definitely find there is great food at reasonable prices- sandwiches, seafood, salads, burgers, Italian, and steaks.

3) AJ's Bar & Grill has an excellent menu plus a great view of the harbor. This restaurant is at the Harbor Walk. The grilled fish sandwich is a house specialty along with the fried shrimp and crab claws. A friendly atmosphere with live music is what you'll typically get at this harborside restaurant.

4) Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is the best place to eat steak in Destin. It is also a great place for a date or with family. The appetizers in the bar at happy hour are great and the steak (rib is our favorite) is outstanding.  

5) Old Bay Steamer is located in Fort Walton Beach, but is only a couple miles west of Destin. As the name implies, they offer steamed seafood. There are alternatives, but not many as its a "steamer restaurant" so prepare to order one of the steamed platters. They have them in all sizes and colors and they're all very good.  The best seafood in the area with generous portions and reasonably priced.

6) Osaka Japanese Steak House & Sushi Bar is rated the #1 hibachi in Northwest Florida. This place is very nice, a little pricey, but the food and service is well worth it. Osaka offers a large menu of steak, seafood, chicken, sushi and vegetables. The sashimi is excellent and melts in the mouth. The rolls are wonderful and high quality coming straight from the Gulf. 

7) An absolute fabulous place to eat at is McGuire's Irish Pub. Their in-house beers are brilliant and their menu has something for everyone, including some very impressive seafood choices. For starters order the 18 cent bean soup, and the nacho appetizer is more like a full size meal for two. Steaks are thick and juicy. The atmosphere is lively, and of course, very Irish with thousands of one dollar bills signed and stapled to the walls.
