Where do locals eat? The answer can vary. Just like you, we crave all types of food and fortunately, Destin offers all types of restaurants to give us a ton of choices. Here is a short list of options.


When we’re craving a great burger, there’s probably none better than the burgers at McGuire’s. These burgers are huge and are works of art.  With more than 25 different types of burgers, you can choose between everything from a Swiss cheese steak burger to a Skippy peanut butter burger and pretty much anything in between. The steaks at McGuire’s are also a great choice. A few other great burger restaurants are Craft Bar    or if you really feel like a treat try fat boys

Mexican Food

When we’re craving some good Mexican food, you can regularly find us at the original Pedros. Offering traditional Mexican fare and great happy hour deals, you’ll leave full and satisfied. Some other great Mexican restaurants to try are Cantina Laredo and the brand new Pepito’s  which also offers a stunning view of the harbor and, of course, Destin’s famous Crab Island.


When we are in the mood for seafood, let’s face it, we’re overwhelmed here in Destin. There are so many great restaurants serving up fresh seafood caught by one of the largest fishing fleets in America. Some of our personal favorites are the original and harborside locations of Dewey Destin’s. Make sure to grab some hush puppies and ask about their specials, or try their massive stuffed shrimp! Some of our other favorites with a view are Pompano Joe’s, Marina Cafe, Whale’s Tale, Beach Walk Cafe, and the Red Bar

There are literally hundreds of delicious dining choices in and around the Destin area. As a  local, I must say we are blessed to live in one of the most stunning and palate pleasing destinations in the world.
