    The waitress, the service, the food-my gosh the food was excellent!! Pricey yes however it pales in comparison to the menu. I had the venison and it almost melts in your mouth. The first time I've been to Destin and wanted to take my friends out someplace special. Henderson's is definitely special.

    It seemed like our waitress "checked out" early in our meal. We had purchased a bottle of wine at the bar before we were seated. She never refilled our wine glasses. When our meals came she brought salt and pepper shakers, but never offered ground pepper, then we saw her grinding pepper for diners two tables over. You have a beautiful place, your food is great, the ambiance is wonderful, but the service was not up to the level we would expect in this nice a restaurant.

    Staff was very attentive, menu was very interesting with many choices of inventive seafood such as crab and eggplant which was perfectly prepared. Not too much salt which is always an annoyance for me (and many others) We were seated promptly, weren't rushed with our meals and just had an overall great evening,

  • Great Romantic Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 2/5/2014
    My wife and I stayed at the Henderson Park Inn very recently for our honeymoon - so naturally we ate here one night. We were able to get reservations very easily on OpenTable. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. We shared a bottle of wine and crab spring roll appetizer...which was delicious. My wife is a good southern girl who loves shrimp and grits, so naturally she ordered it here. She said, without reservation, that they were the best she'd ever eaten. I had the Grouper Vince and it, too, was delicious. Although we were too stuffed for dessert, I've heard great things about the cheesecake. The rose at the end was a nice touch. Would highly recommend to any couple vacationing in Destin wanting a romantic dinner for two!

    View is beautiful, but the food is overpriced and mediocre. Salads were extremely overdressed, my grouper was over cooked, sauce was dry. Steak was good and veggies were well steamed. Split the corleone--decent, but not exciting. Lance, our waiter, was very nice. Wine list is very lacking. The smell of potpourri/air freshener was so strong, I could hardly enjoy my food, let alone a bottle of wine. Go for a drink at sunset. This is absolutely NOT fine dining. The old beach walk was great--this was mediocre and pricey to boot.

    Outstanding dining experience. We were warmly greeted by valet parking. Once inside the hostess welcomed us like family and our waiter was attentive and informative and guided us in making our wine and dinner selections. My husband selected the Scrimp and Grits and I selected one of the specials that evening, the Chilean Sea Bass. Both were outstanding choices. We will make this a must go to restaurant on future trips to the gulf.

  • Beach Walk is on the beach
    DavidDVIP
    Dined on 10/12/2013
    Beach Walk is on the beach immediately adjacent to the Henderson State Beach, so the views are quite good and scenery is delightful. The restaurant is part of a charming 31 room adults only bed and breakfast beautiful beach, sophisticated clientele and skilled waiters. The menu is full of enticing appetizers, great local seafood and choice meats. The only negative was that the kitchen seemed to be very slow in producing the food for the wait staff to deliver (as in glacial). Once it arrived, it was hot and delicious. Dinner consisting of starters, entrees and dessert took nearly two hours to serve and finish, and we did not dawdle. We will definitely return and are looking into staying in the B & B, as well.

    The inn is absolutely gorgeous. It looks like it was transported from coastal New England. The service was prompt and efficient, but did not make us feel rushed at all. The quality of the food and its presentation was fantastic. Our server was gracious and helpful. Children under the age of 13 are not allowed, so the atmosphere is peaceful. One of the best places we have enjoyed in Florida.

    While I always review restaurants with star ratings, I rarely take the time to comment. Beach Walk deserves a review! Both the food and the service were outstanding from start to finish. We started with house salads with a champaigne vinegrette, which was light and delightful. From my grouper to my husband's tuna to our guest's seafood with pasta, each was prepared just perfectly. Our guests were particularly fascinated with the bread, served warm and tasty with an olive oil/ parmesan combination. Dessert was chocolate cake with a pistachio filling--yum--that was plenty for two. The wine list is reasonable and, while you can bring your own, it was not worth the corkage fee. We were happy with the chardonnay we selected.

    BW has been a favorite for view and food. Reservation request for 47th anniversary completely ignored--seated inside in the only place without the sunset view asked for(even though window and porch tables were available). The restaurant up the street was glad to have our business. Will not be back to BW until there is a change in management.

    Very nice restaurant but you must make a reservation during the tourist season. Prices are quite high but everything is top notch from the moment you are seated. Children are not allowed under 13 years old, which makes the atmosphere that much more enjoyable. We will be back this winter...a must try for anyone who enjoys wonderful food, beautiful gulf views and good service.

    My husband and I with another couple went to Beach Walk at Henderson Inn this past weekend around 6:30pm. The first impression when you set foot in the dining area is the beautiful view of the golf. Wish we would have ate outside but it was a little windy due to the beach weather, other than that the shrimp and grits I had was very delicious the bread presentation was good also. Everyone enjoyed there dinner at the view. After dinner we sat outside and just enjoyed the ambience, ohh and the waiter we had was excellent.
