Got the taco trio. The pork taco was a fat blob, the shrimp taco tasted like it had been frozen and thawed 6 times, and the fish taco was the only bearable one. All for $22. No one at our table left thrilled with their plate. The French fries were the best thing served.

We were staying in near by hotel, no car, so we didn’t have much of choice of exploring restaurant around. Of course, Surf hut was an obvious choice. We’ve been here before, 3 years ago, bad experience but we gave it a try because it was long ago since last visit. So, there few thing we didn’t like. One is service…. Plenty tables were available but dirty from previous visitors and they make us wait for 45 mins before they cleaned them. Other thing is WORST DRINKS EVER IN MY LIFE!!!!! It doesn’t matter what you order, all drinks taste the same - as there is no alcohol in them. My pina colada taste the same as virgin version (yes, ordered both for different people and were able to compare). Daiquiri - the same, margarita - the same. Why the hell I have to pay for a cocktail as they don’t do it right? As a matter of food - regular and close to bad then to good. Rice was over cooked and lack flavor, veggies not fresh. The only decent is Fish tacos. Seafood salad - don’t waste your money!! 1 spoon of crab meat, 8 shrimps and 2 sea scallops… really??? I understand that vacation restaurant are expensive but they need to be worth of money. Walk 2 mins more and you will find great place Austons on 98 - great food and drinks!

we loved that we could wait on the beach for our table to be ready. Our seats were literally on the sand. Great atmosphere!

This is always on our list of favorite restaurants when we're in Destin. Everything we've tried has been delicious. The drinks are great and it's just a pleasant place to enjoy a meal with family and friends. Love it!
