About
Brotula's Seafood House & Steamer is a locally-owned & operated, casual, family friendly seafood restaurant on the Destin Harbor. The name Brotula's is derived from the Bearded Brotula or Cusk Eel that is caught right here in the local waters at depths of 350 feet. It is one of the best kept secrets among the local fishing community and some amazing tasting fish. Here at Brotula's we specialize in fresh, locally-sourced seafood, produce, and a wide array of steamed and boiled shellfish platters that are integrated into a fun and rustic, yet sophisticated southern fish house. Some of our most popular dishes includes the steamed snow crab, lobsters, and mussels. The Chef Inspired menu will display

I went here with my family, a group of 16, and we loved it. Our waiter, Jon, was awesome! He gave us information about the menu and answered our questions. Our drinks were refreshed and the food was great!

Way overrated restaurant. Food and service were overrated. The food is way overpriced. The bathrooms were dirty. Won’t be back.

Came here on vacation tonight and had the most wonderful dinner. The shrimp and grits were honestly the best I’ve ever had and my boyfriend had the Cajun crab platter and ate every bite. We had amazing service by Tony and he was such a...pleasure to talk to! We will definitely be back next time we are in town!More

Our first visit to Destin didn’t disappoint but the food highlight was most definitely this restaurant. The service was fast and friendly. The view was incredible! Our server’s name was Sugar Ray. If you are in the area eat here and ask for him. His...personality was awesome and his knowledge of the menu and area was terrific. We will be back Sugar Ray! Thanks for an amazing dining experience.More

The owners are some of the friendless people I’ve ever met so I can’t imagine how great their service is

Yes they do. We were the solo brave couple sitting out side at 50F. Plenty of heat to keep you warm. Well, that is if you are from the Northern States.
