My Travel Guide To Destin/san Destin, Fl :)

Recommended Posts

We found quite a few options while vacationing in Destin/San Destin. Here is my breakdown of where we went.

Bone Fish Grill, near Destin Commons mall (fun mall)

Outback is also in Destin and they did a fine job.

In Baytowne Wharf, San Destin (cute shopping area)

-Another Broken Egg Cafe: http://www.anotherbrokenegg.com/ (Is also in Destin)

(corresponded with owner/chef beforehand) Has huge menu with lots of omelettes, salads, burgers, fruit etc. They worked with me and it was great! You can really have a lot of options here. Bread is kept in its own area too, as I was told. They do breakfast and lunch each day.

Marlin Grill: nice, upscale restaurant. they worked with me, some meat, veggies options etc. http://www.baytownewharf.com/shops_and_din....asp?listing=37

Sweeties: sorbet, ice cream etc. The sorbet I cked was gluten-free. Just fruit, water, sugar. Be a place to ck on ingredients and find options. http://www.baytownewharf.com/shops_and_din....asp?listing=44

Seaside, FL Visit here if you haven't--new urbanism village on the beach--so cool! restaurants, shopping etc.

Heavenly Shortcakes & Ice Cream: had sorbet that was great. they let me read any ingredients I wanted.

Hilton Hotel & Resort, San Destin

Sandcastles: more casual restaurant, made me a safe meal. Our server had multiple food allergies and didn't eat gluten either!

Barefoots: casual outdoor grill, also does deliver on the beach :) Had a great burger, fruit.

Seagars: very nice restaurant. go here if you are willing to spend a few bucks. only 5 star restaurant in the area. excellent excellent. best steaks of our lives. fabulous service.

**I also worked with Angelia Brown at Hilton who coordinated for me in advance with all the chefs, restaurants...to give them a heads-up. If you want to stay there, ask me for her e-mail and I can pass it along.

Lastly is Beachwalk: http://www.beachwalkcafe.com/ We ran out of time and didn't get to dine here, but from my correspondence with the chef, I would definitely recommend. He seemed excited about coming up with some meals. It is a well known restaurant on the beach and seems like they would do a great job.

Hope this helps someone out... PS: October is *the* month to visit this area--beach and town was uncrowded and weather was perfect!
