    Great food and service. Probably about as good as it gets. The decor and atmosphere in this restaurant is something to be seen. Bring your big wallet here because it is very expensive but worth the price for this restaurant. Their is construction around the restaurant which makes it somewhat difficult to get to. Call and ask the best place to park and get directions.

    I have eaten at Segars many times in the past and they never disappoint. They have the absolute best food of any high end steak house I have ever been to. They are so knowledgeable about food and wine. The service is fantastic. Still the best restaurant I've ever been to.

    Me and the love of my life took a quick weekend away and stumbled upon this great place in the hotel we were staying. The food was amazing(ribeye, eggplant and tomato Napoleon, King Crab legs), as well as the service and the atmosphere. The live music added a romantic touch along with the ambiance. I would highly recommend this place for any occasion.

    There's nothing worse than paying a lot for bad service. At least the entire staff was consistent....consistently bad, that is. The host never looked up when we arrived. We sat for 15 minutes before being greeted by the server, and then another 15 minutes before our wine arrived - and not the wine we ordered. We had to ask twice for water, had to ask for bread, and halfway through our evening, the waiter handed us off to a bus boy or new waiter, who never brought us the check when asked. No one checked on us during the meal. If this were a casual eatery, I might be more lenient with the review, but if you expect me to pay $20 for two scallops, I expect stellar service. One can get good seafood almost anywhere in Sandestin.

    Every moment of our visit to Seagar's was a delight. Superb service, excellent wine menu, delectable menu. Very old-school without feeling stuffy. Now that a small new upstart airline offers direct flights from PDK to Destin I seriously might consider flying down again just to dine here.

    if you're in Destin and want fine dining....... spend your money at Fleming's not at Seagar's. mediocre bone in filet. terrible table made caesar (overdressed, no anchovies available). the rock lobster is nothing noteworthy. way overpriced food that pales in comparison to other steakhouses in the area. waste of money

    Normally, you don't expect to find exceptional food at the beach. You may find a few good places, but nothing noteworthy. I'm pleased to report that Seagar's is the exception. My wife was there two weeks ago for a business dinner, and bragged about it. So, when we found we were headed that direction this past weekend, I made reservations for dinner to celebrate her birthday, along with our 17 yo granddaughter. I had pan-seared snapper with homemade pasta, my wife had Dover sole, and our granddaughter had steak. All of the entrees were outstanding, as well as the appetizers, sides, and desserts. The service was just right-attentive, but not intrusive. It's not cheap, but worth it in my opinion for that special occasion. We'll be back!

    Service was impeccable. Even though we had several young adults in our group of eight, the captain treated us with utmost respect. The food was fantastic. The steaks were all cooked to order. The chef did a wonderful job with the seafood tower. The lobster melted in your mouth. Caesar salad prepared tableside was delicious and plentiful. Chocolate soufflé was delicious and oversized - easily serves two or more people.

    The food and service were excellent. However, the ambience is missing. I planned to were a coat and tie but the dress code stated " collared shirt and long pants required, coat preferred". I was the only one in the restaurant with a coat. There were T-shirts, shorts, and very casual attire. I think you should maintain your stated dress code.

    We had an anniversary dinner here 3 years ago and received congratulations from maitre d and the wait staff including a complementary champagne toast however this year nothing said or acknowledged even though they knew it was our anniversary. Had the bone in filet as it was recommended however was disappointed the regular filet would have been just as good for much less, never were asked how everything was and had the feeling that we were more of an annoyance than customers. Will be our last visit to this restaurant.

    The food at Seagar's never disappoints and we always make a point to visit when we are in SanDestin. Our reservations were for 8:00 p.m. on Thursday night. The restaurant was not very crowded. However, it did feel like we were ignored for the first 10-15 minutes after we were seated. I am not a huge fan of the tag team approach to service. The "lead" waitress did a poor job; the other waitress was fantastic. The food was great. The warm spinach salad was terrific. There are few places who do steaks as well as Seagar's. My filet did not disappoint. We shared the sauteed mushrooms and macaroni and cheese. Both were excellent. I would highly recommend the creme brulee. Ours was topped with maple infused whipped cream that was superb.

    It had been several years since I'd been to Seagars but it was terrific. They just opened for the summer season on Sunday nights and the place was very thin. We had lots of attention from the serving team but not obtrusive. The steaks were great. Planning to go back at next chance.

    My wife and I have always tried to dine at Seagars every time we vacation in the area. We have aways had great personal service and excellent food. This time our waiter was not very personal and just handed us the wine list on a tablet device and left. Don't know if he was over seated or what but the high level of service was severly lacking. The wines by the glass have shrunk and the wine list itself is no longer what it was. My wife was very put off at the beverage menu presentation on a tablet. We very much prefer tointeract with the staff about wine or beverage choices. I will say that the food is still marvelous and the ambiance is still as good or not better than ever. We, however will not be back.

    service and wine list were wonderful, but the food was disappointing. A calamari appetizer was mostly bread and cold. The entrees - filet and lamb -were beautiful but so salty that they were almost inedible. Highlight was a very hot cream spinach side dish. We do not mind spending over $300 for 2 people but we expect best in class in all areas when we do. Seagar's did not live up to our expectations and does not compare favorably with other prime steak house near by.
