    I eat regularly at Flemings when I am on the road. This particular time I was with my in-laws on vacation. I usually don't write some 5 star review but this experience is worth a review. The service ............ 5 star. We had the 2 person porterhouse for both of us and did I mention the service .......... normally the steak would have been front and center and it should have been but the service took top honers. The steak was five star as well. One of the best in a long time ................... I travel, I dine well and you can take this review to heart. If you are in the Destin area anytime soon give this one of your nights out.

    Dined on 8/28/2014
    When I arrived the host seemed preoccupied even though there wasn't much activity... but the woman who seated my party of 3 was charming. We weren't in a rush (catching up; it's been a long time since we'd last visited) and we weren't rushed. Enjoyed an excellent Knob Creek Manhattan while we were chatting. The server (don't remember his name) was professional but wasn't totally on his game that night. No big deal. Started with the carpaccio (perfect), moved on to the caesar salad (crisp & fresh), and the had the petite filet mignon -rare- (superb). Dinner companion chose the wine and although we didn't have dessert the waiter brought us truffles (twice). Coffee and a B & B rounded out a great evening.

    The steaks are the food star here. They are not presented with mush style or panache and the sides are mediocre. But a prime steak is hard to mess up if served at the temp requested. The service is impeccable and the atmosphere relaxing here. I would go again and again for the quality meats but I do not expect it to rise to the level of the great non chain steakhouses

  • Disappointing fried chicken
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 7/16/2014
    Came in for the Wed. Buttermilk fried chicken special. Turned out to be a cornish hen that had never seen any buttermilk. Not very tasty.KFC would have been more satisfying. Did not like the cole slaw either. The strawberry shortcake dessert was fine. My wife loved the lamb chop small plates and thenCaesars salad. Service was excellent!! We are regular customers and plan to go Sunday for the prime rib special that we know is excellent. Too bad about the chicken--- Gordon Ramsey would have filed it in the round can.

    We went here with friends on the 4th of July. I had been here before and it was fantastic but that was 18 months ago. From the time we were seated to the time we got our first drink it was an hour, yes an hour! The waiter disappeared for long periods of time. The restaurant was not busy, which was surprising so not sure where he went. We had to ask dirty dishes to be cleared as well. The worst was when the waiter brought our friends 7 year old his spaghetti and meatballs. The meatballs were raw on the inside. So that was another 20 minutes. Fortunately the food was good but not great. When you pay 5 star prices and 1 star service it doesn't get you back.

    FrequentDinerVIP
    Dined on 6/29/2014
    We have dined at this Flemings many times as we have a place nearby and we are in the 'Friends Of Flemings' program. We have brought our own wine in before and never paid a corkage as we usually buy a bottle of the list as well. On this occasion, we brought a bottle in and bought a bottle off the list. The food and service were fine but when the bill came there was a corkage fee. When I questioned the manager, she said our "contract" allows them to charge a corkage. I don't know what she meant by a "contract". In just about every other restaurant we go to, buying a bottle off the list usually covers corkage. This woman doesn't have a clue as to how to treat customers, likes to argue and I'm not sure we will go back. Hello Ruth's Chris!

    Great steaks, great Flemings potatoes. When we are tired of fresh fish at the beach, we go to Flemings for a great steak. Always satisfied with the quality and perfect "light pink in the center" steaks. If you are there for a quiet evening, do not sit in the bar area booths. We were seated in a booth in the bar area. Shortly after our seating, four ladies were seated behind us and then two men came in and hung on the edge of our booth talking and laughing loudly. Further to our disappointment, the two guys pulled two bar stool chairs up to the table and continued to order full meals as well. Again, it was our call to be seated in an immediately available booth, but, we will not make that mistake again. Remember...great steaks!!

    We eat at this Flemmings quite often when we want to treat ourselves. They have great steaks at competitive prices. Always a nice atmosphere and an attentive wait staff. Sometimes the staff is a little too attentive. It's annoying when you're having a convesation over dinner or just enjoying a coctail before your meal and you are constantly interrupted. This happens at a lot of places. I know Flemmings wants to ensure a great experience but they need to train the art of "interrupting". Some are good at it while others just blast right in with whatever question they may have. Great restaurants have mastered the art of being available without being intrusive.

    This was our first visit to the restaurant having recently moved from the NYC area to Destin. We were surprised by the a la carte prices but then expected exceptional quality food. Unfortunately the only thing exceptional was the cost of the dinner. The food & service were good but not worth the money. We won't return for dinner but may try the happy hour. The quality of liquor is not the best offered during this time but the bar food looked appetizing.

    The shrimp cocktail must have been frozen and left in the refrigerator for a day or two. It was mushy and didn't taste good. $17.50 for 4 shrimp and we only ate 2 of them. 2 or us asked for Tanqueray gin and got Tanqueray Rangpur, a more expensive gin that I don't like the taste of.

    Perhaps the Destin location was not the best choice for Flemmings, based on the competition, but paying $18 for four shrimp that are so over cooked that you could bounce them off of the floor! - is simply unacceptable!!!!

    We were expecting exceptional food and service for the price but Found the food was not in the exceptional area. Service was ok but for the amount of ppl there it could have been A lot quicker. Food was good just not as good as it was priced. Had a white Cosmo and First one was very good the second one had a fruity flavor to it such as peach and was not very good Don't think we will be returning.

    Dined on 11/10/2013
    Our romantic dining experience started off on a high positive note, by having the hostess acknowledge us by name, followed by being seated at a very romantic table setting, and promptly being acknowledged by our server. The experience went downhill from there. My husband ordered coffee immediately upon the server taking our drink order. He never received that first cup of coffee during the entire dining experience despite 10 different reminders. Our appetizer was served promptly and was outstanding. We then waited 45 minutes before being served our salads, which were very simple salads. We waited an additional one hour before being served our entrees or the house prime rib and a filet mignon. The service was very poor.

    We love Flemings. It is better than some of the other nicer steak restaurants. Service is always wonderful. From the bread with the two different butters, flemings potatoes, perfectly cooked steaks, and great salads you will not be disappointed. And do not turn down dessert, take it with you because you will be too full from dinner.
