  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 ."

  • "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."

  • "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??"

  • "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."

  • "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 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. "

  • "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."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "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."

  • "Great atmosphere and outstanding seafood. One of the best clam chowder that I have ever had. "

  • "perfect for an anniversary. quality food, skilled, friendly staff, and amazing ambience. "

  • "Been to Mitchell's several times (at least 30), I'm a fan but this past visit was my worse experience to date. Server was trailed by a trainer and still couldn't keep the drinks filled. Salads took 35 minutes and dinner was another 45 minutes after salad. I had the scallops and they must have been sitting out for a while, cold and rubbery when they arrived. It wasn't worth complaining because we had a group of eight and everyone was tired and ready to go. My recommendation to Mitchell's is there needs to be a manager assisting when things are getting backed up. I never had a manager check on our table. The busy season is here, I will be back in a few weeks but if I have the same experience it might be my last. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Mitchell's was the perfect place to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food and service were outstanding. They helped arrainge for table side flower delivery and a birthday dessert to make the meal a memorable occasion. Thanks Mitchell's. We will be back."

  • "My boyfriend lives in FL and I was visiting from TN. He had never been but had heard only good things. We went on a sunday night and I don't really like fish of any kind and there were only like 2 or 3 different steaks to choose from. I thought since it was mainly a fish restaurant that the steak wouldn't be all that great. It was by far the best steak I have ever had! I would recommend this place to anyone!!"
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "We've always enjoyed the food here, but despite asking the waiter if we could enjoy our cocktail, he kept reappearing. We finally relented. Our meal arrived mid-appetizer and our dining was over in time to return to our condo within an hour and half. Including driving. That takes them out of 'foodie status' in ou opinion. "

  • "We had a group of 10 adults and 2 kids, the food was fantastic! Everyone raved about all of the appetizers and entrees. The service was ok, really no complaints but it was a little slow at times for drinks. Overall everything was very good, we would definitely return when visiting the area again. The bbq shrimp and the lobster mac and cheese were fantastic!"

  • "First reaction was there was an odor in the restaurant. It smelled like and I don't mean to be rude but the deodorizer used in men's rooms. The food was average. I would not go there again."

  • "We had a party of 8. we were seated in our own private room. It was like having a wonderful family dinner with out the Mothers cooking it. Our service was fantastic with all 8 entrees coming out at the same time and all being correct. what more could a Mother ask for?"

  • "I was able to make a reservation through Open Table for 7 people at the desired time. However, when we arrived at the restaurant, it was closed. This was fairly embarassing as I had clients with me. There should be a trigger on Open Table that alerts when a restaurant is closed. "

  • "I ordered the cedar plank salmon. I expected the salmon to been prepared on the Cedar plank, it was not. It was placed on top of two grilled zucchini slices which were then placed on top of a cedar plank for presentation. Disappointing. "

  • "Since I was trying to make reservations by phone and no one answered I did the next best thing and made a reservation online. It was for a birthday dinner for my son and his wife. Also, a good friend from St. Louis got into town that afternoon and I invited him to join in the birthday celebration. The reservation was for 6:30 p.m. for four under the name Rita Tucker. The reservation was made and we showed up to the restaurant to find it was closed due to "inclement weather". I find this truly unacceptable. There was no indication that the reservation could not be made. There I was with son, daughter-in-law and friend standing outside of a restaurant and it was CLOSED..............THANKS FOR YOUR NON COMMUNICATION............."
