Diner Reviews
  • "We go here every time we are in the area and they never disappoint. Great food and even have a great kids menu."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "We weren't in the mood for anything too fancy but we wanted good cocktails with better-quality bourbon and vodka than you find at casual crab-shack type restaurants right on the beach. This was a good mid-range option. The service is extremely attentive. They were out of the shrimp and scallops ceviche which must mean it's pretty good. We had lobster tails and the Seafood Americana. The lobster, flown in from Maine, was good but the other dish was overly salty and swimming in sauce. We also had the spicy Asian shrimp appetizer which also was swimming in sauce. The kitchen could use a lighter hand with sauce, especially given how the restaurant boasts how fresh their fish is."

  • "Great restaurant! Calamari appetizer was the best we've ever had; stuffed cod was delicious and service was very good! Will definitely go back to try more."

  • "Nice evening, good food. Attractive decor. So glad we chose this for our first night of vacation!"
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Our family has dined at Mitchell's several times the past 3 years when visiting Destin and have always had excellent meals and service. However this time was very poor. We had 3 seafood meals and one steak meal in our party. 2 seafood meals were poor as far as taste. The other seabass (Specialty dinner) was so bad that the person became ill. Whatever the reason I will not be returning in the near future. Maybe it was just bad preparation, but it will just take time before I will try it again. The only meal that was not messed up was the Steak."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Overall, we had an excellent evening here. The kitchen was extremely slow, but otherwise, the service was extremely attentive. The food was also exceptionally well prepared. Nice atmosphere. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Mitchell's Fish Market has become one of our favorite restaurants in the Sandestin area. We have had dinner a couple of times this vacation and found it totally satisfactory. It is not over the top, but they really service you well and have a good understanding of better wines too."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Always can count on a wonderful meal. It's our go to restaurant whenever we are on vacation where we know will have wonderful food and great service! Lucked out this time with wonderful Monday special of 2 lobster tails plus enjoyed yummy Blackberry Margarita. Great for kids also, our server went out of his way to entertain our son - Happy child = Happy Parents!"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We all really enjoyed the twin lobster tails special on Monday night"
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "Love the Sandestin Martini! Menu changes daily. Fresh fish and seafood choices, cooked to your preference. Great selection on kids menu."

  • "Food was good but overpriced for the quality. Ordered pan sauteed fish and got heavily breaded fried."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Came to Mitchell's twice during vacation last year because of the great food and service. Looked forward to coming back a year. They did not disappoint!!! From the seating arrangement they provided for our 8 top (private room), to the menu knowledge of our server (Brian), to local seafood, ending with the awesome food itself! Apps were great, get the BBQ shrimp or spicey Asian shrimp, entrees were cooked perfectly, I recommend anything local, and the desert you have to share, shark-fin pie. Kids loved it and so did our guests from Dallas. I work in the business and realize how hard it is day to day to provide top notch consistency, but Mitchell's has done it again. Hope to be back again tonight for a second round before we leave!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "We have vacationed in Destin a couple of times a year for may years. Mitchell's is always on our to do list. The happy hour is fun and special. We had supper and had a problem with one of the dishes. Scott the manager and Brenda our server made everything perfect. Our satisfaction was all that was on their mind. Mitchell's is the ultimate in customer service. Do yourself a favor and pay them a visit."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Waiter was great explained menu perfectly, food was very good, just a great experience"
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "We all enjoyed our food when it arrived but the service was neglectful. At the price you pay for an entree at this restaurant you expect a high level of service with the waiter anticipating your requests. We had to constantly ask for refills and our waiter was slow to fill them. We had to ask for bread multiple times before we received it. Some of the other tables around us seemed to have more attentive waiters. Our waiter did not appear to have any other tables in the room except ours so I don't think he was overwhelmed. He did tell us that he was new and we would have cut him some slack but he did not seem to be making any effort."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Our food took very long, poor service outdoor table. Drinks order never came out...I reminded the server not to charge me for the drink. She had the nerve to say "I checked twice guess they forgot"... But don't worry I took them off the check! Well I hope so since I never got them... Needles to say no tip was left.!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We wanted a special spot to celebrate our anniversary and found it! The food was awesome, our waiter was charming and helpful, and the atmosphere was what you'd expect in a quality restaurant. We will look for Mitchell's in other locations."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We had eaten at Mitchell's Fish Market some years ago and loved it. We decided to see if it still was great and it was! The service was great by everyone, the food was awesome and the atmosphere was very relaxed. We will definitely be back!!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Located in the beach town of Sandestin, Mitchell's is a great find because it's a step above the local Florida beach fish house."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Invited several clients to join me for dinner in their private dining room. Room needed cleaning, food was marginal at best and service was slow. Would not return or recommend."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Our family has been vacationing in Destin for almost 20 years and we were looking for a new dinner restaurant this year. We have found our new place hands down!! Wonderful service with a very knowledgeable server and the food and specialty drinks were amazing! Even the kids menu was unlike any other restaurant we've been to with fresh green beans and strawberries as side items. We are already looking forward to going back next year! Thanks Mitchell's!!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I needed a special place for my anniversary that served good food and was someplace different and Boy did we hit the Jackpot. This was truly a great experience and choice of wonderful food.We will definately return on our next visit."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "All around fabulous meal for my boyfriend and I, who were enjoying a relaxing weekend at the beach. The Chilean sea bass blackened with Shang hi preparation was the best fish dish it have ever had!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Mitchell's is one of the places we go every tiime we visit the Gulf. It is consistently good and they make reservations. That's a great combination for a beach restaurant."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We made a dinner reservation and after being seated, determined that "happy hour" drink prices did not apply to the restaurant side. We moved to the bar and ordered our dinner there, not as relaxing or comfortable sitting at the bar. We will probably use Mitchell's for happy hour or lunch from this point forward."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "As one new to Destin, the restaurant was a bit hard to find, but it was very pleasant once we got inside. My wife's lobster tail was over cooked and a bit crispy. She should have sent it back, but didn't. I had an excellent red snapper dish. With appetizers, entrees, and iced tea it came to $120 with tip and tax."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We dined here our first night in Sandestin. We have teenagers and they loved the calamari, fish and chips and shrimp. The adults liked the wine choices and fresh fish including awesome lobster. Shark fin desert was fun to share and really good."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had a party of 8. Upon arrival I was told they had a private room set up for us! Since we have 3 little ones that was a plus. Food was great especially the spinach lobster dip! Service was good as well the guy kinda tried to oversell it a not bit all in all a great restaurant ."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "We had a friend in from Atlanta who wanted fresh fish. Mitchell's more than filled the request with fresh sea bass, tuna and cobia for the group. All were prepared to order, and came out hot with nice veggies. Our server was very attentive, and knew the fish on the menu, and how they were prepared. It is a little pricey, but worth it for what you get. The place has a nice bar area, and outside eating and drinking area in the Grand Blvd. Shops of Destin. Plenty of free parking."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "They loved just as much as we always do. We'll see you next time."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Looking for some good seafood, and Mitchell's fit the bill perfectly. I highly recommend you try Mitchell's when your in the Destin area!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I ordered the mini shark fin pie for dessert and it was as good as usual. I have ordered the mini in your Jax, Fl restaurant and received a piece twice the size of the one I was given in Sandestin, for over $5.00, come on make it a good slice!!! There was a significant wait for the salad to be brought out after I ate the clam chowder. The waiter did a good job, but he did not seem to be in any hurry??"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "We've had dinner here five times this past year. The food quality/preparation is dependable and delicious and the service is outstanding. You can't go wrong."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We were very excited to take our close friends to this restaurant. However, we were quite embarassed by the service & quite frankly, disappointed in the food. We ordered soups, salads, oysters, and appetizers to begin our meal. The soups, salads, & appetizers arrived 2-3 minutes prior to our meal. The oysters arrived after the meal was served and we quickly asked them to be returned to the kitchen. The server was very attentive to a loud group adjacent to us but she rarely visited our table. We had to ask for our drink orders repeatedly before they were brought to us. Many other servers brought us food & drinks & checked on us since our server was so attentive to others. The food was disappointing-slightly cold & seemed overprocessed."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "My wife had the red snapper - grilled. She said that it was very good. I ordered the red grouper, grilled - not steamed - shanghai. I received it steamed. I guess the cooks thought that I would not know the difference. It was eatable, but it was certainly disappointed. For the price that I paid, I am sorry to say that I expected better food than I received."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This place has been great every time. It's a little pricey but you get what you pay for good food. The only complaint I has was my son ordered a side salad which was offered to all of us it cost him 7.00 just a plain small salad that's a little crazy. The fish is always great as this is our second year come down to the area and both trips it's been perfect."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We enjoy coming here each year we visit the area. Mitchell's offers high quality food at a reasonable price. The kids choices are better and less expensive than the typical tourist trap restaurants. And the adult menu is excellent. Drinks are great too! I would typically highly recommend each aspect of this restaurant. However, during our second visit this week, the service was extremely slow. We were a party of two and we were told there was a private party of 20. At the time the dining room was only half full. I would just say that a small party must not be much of a priority if larger parties are present. Pick your time wisely. Food was still good but nothing was offered to amend the horribly slow service. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "The food was pretty good. I liked the selection of fish they had and the flavor options. The bread was really hard. The dinner portion was a normal portion that people should consumed. But, for $30, I was thinking they would offer more sides and/or salad. Its definitely ala carte type dining. I was told the kitchen was backed up, although there wasn't a wait to sit down and the restaurant was not packed. It took about an hour to receive our entrees. They offered free soup to accommodate us. The soup was good or I was very hungry. I probably won't visit this place again during my next trip to Destin."

  • "Mitchell's is one of my personal favorites, as well as my family's. We dine here everytime that we travel to Destin, sometimes more than once. I made reservations for my sister's bachelorette party two months in advance for a large party of 13 to be coming in Memorial Day weekend. Obviously this is a busy time of year and wanted to ensure we had a large enough area to accommodate our party. We sat down in a restaurant with several empty tables, that consistently were empty throughout the night. Our drinks came out in intervals of five at a time with no exaggeration, a 15 minute wait in between.It got to the point where we were ordering 2 drinks at a time. Then our appetizers came out 35 minutes later. The rest is in my private note below"

  • "We were a little disappointed in both the food and service, and its pricey so you expect more. So many good choices in the area and this was just OK."
