Enjoy the flavor of the Emerald Coast! Being called "the World's Luckiest Fishing village" is a lot to live up to, and the restaurants found in Destin and in South Walton County do not disappoint. Each restaurant showcases the harvest of local fisherman and culinary artists alike. Here, you'll never find a shortage of fresh locally-caught grouper, snapper, shrimp, and other seafood found in the surrounding area. Of course, what if seafood isn't your thing? Not to worry—there are also plenty of restaurants that feature excellent non-seafood choices. Destin and South Walton are home to delicious Mexican food, pizzerias, Thai food, pub food, and American standards, all prepared by the most talented chefs in the area.
