Often asked by guests regarding which restaurants are worth a try, we thought you may enjoy reading about some of Destin’s options.
Here at Silver Shells Beach Resort and Spa, the premier beachfront resort on the Emerald Coast, we specialize in world class unparalleled amenities and service. When on vacation, you will want to taste the local cuisine…
Aside, of course from our renowned Sandbar, which serves up handmade cocktails and light bites, or the legendary Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse. (conveniently located right on the grounds of the resort.) One of our favorite places to eat is the renowned Fisherman’s Wharf, steps from one of the largest fleets of fishing charters of anywhere in the Nation.
Though opened in 1995, Fisherman’s Wharf has the charm of a much older sea shanty. We take pride in our scenery with dark woods, amazing water views, and a lighthouse. There’s also an oyster bar, live music, and our favorite, cool yummy drinks.
Like most restaurants here, our sunsets are amazing. Enjoy this experience while savouring some of our local delicacies.
Simplistic chargrilling is the house specialty and we highly recommend the triggerfish when they have it. The flesh is mild and sweet, flaking easily when barely touched by your fork. Delicious and extremely fresh!
For fans of Andrew Zimmern of Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods,” we have gator wings—bits of gator tail in a Buffalo sauce. The wings are surprisingly good if you are courageous enough to venture off the beaten path. They don’t quite taste like chicken, just imagine a fish-rabbit hybrid. A perfect meal for those who want to live on the edge!
