My husband and I went there for a date night while we were on our beach trip. I had read the reviews before we went, so I had no doubt it was going to be amazing. It absolutely was! Our server recommended the very best dishes and we enjoyed every bite! We had the eggplant appetizer, the fish and steak specials for our entrées and the Keylime pie for dessert. Everything was unbelievably delicious!

New Management, New Chef but the worst meal and service we have experienced at the restaurant. We have been eating at Beachwalk for years, this was the worst meal I have had. Definitely not worth the money.
The appetizer was crab cakes, very thin and drowned in sauce. Horrible.
The Tuna was ordered Rare, it was served Medium. The waitress noticed but said nothing until it was taken from the table uneaten.
The Dessert was a disaster, Cream Brûlée glazed top was like peanut brittle and could hardly be broken with the spoon.
THIS WILL BE OUR LAST DINNER UNTIL THEY GET A NEW MANAGER AND CHEF.

Beautiful and peaceful location on the water. Great for a date night or special occasion. The meal was not overpriced but was expensive; however, there was plenty of food. Not one of those minimalist plates. I would go again.

Three old friends made the trek from our rental in Santa Rosa to the Beach Walk Café for dinner. It is located in the Henderson Park Inn next to the Henderson State Park. Rochelle waited on us and made us feel quite special. Drinks and dinner were delicious, as was the key lime pie for dessert. I have been to this restaurant each of the last several times I have visited the Florida panhandle, and I have never been disappointed. The gift of a rose to each lady topped off our evening there. I highly recommend this wonderful establishment.

This place was amazing! Wife and I went here for a date night during our family vacation to Destin. What a treat! Setting, service, food, ambiance....all excellent. A little pricey but definitely the best dining experience we had in Destin. Very romantic and peaceful. I give it my highest recommendation.

Excellent service from the moment we walked in until we left. Family of 4 that didn't want to get in the mess at any of the other restaurants, made a reservation and 30 mins later we were having a great dinner. We were probably a touch under dressed, but no problem. We got the same excellent service from a very accommodating staff. Solid wine selection and the food was very good. Wish we had gone a little earlier for the sunset here. Will definitely go back.

After all of the reviews I read I was expecting a bit more. The food was average at best and the wrong dessert was brought to me. The gentleman who was our waiter was just ok... seemed to be in a rush to take our order.

Outside dining at the Henderson Beachwalk Inn was spectacular. It was our first time there. Views outstanding, staff exceptional and food, divine. We are coming back with our family to do the “toes in sand” dining. Can’t wait. If you’ve not tried this place, you must. It’s an experience you’ll remember.

Our night at the Beach Walk Cafe was a tremendous experience. Michael McIntosh has done fantastic job of creating a "Best of the Beach" experience. When you arrive in your vehicle , you're met by a friendly extremely helpful Parking Valet. Once inside the ambiance of the Henderson Inn is "full on beach" beautiful. Our server and now friend Candice was simply amazing, friendly and knowledgeable of all aspects of the menu, except the wine menu. If you're inquiring about wine, ask to have Michael come over and assist with a "pairing" of your wine to your dinner. Michael's pick for us was rare and spectacular.
The view is knock your socks off gorgeous, if you love "Sea Oats, white sand and blue green water, then you're in for a treat.

Unbelievable experience! The most romantic views and environment. We reserved a table outside and I can’t say enough amazing things about the service, food and sunset. If you are looking for a romantic dinner or just a night out with all adults and want to see just how beautiful Destin is... this is the place to be.

Beautiful place. Very pricey for the food we received. The waitress looked like she was “over it”. Seemed to have a very annoyed attitude the whole evening. She got a little snippy at the end when questions were being asked. We sat out on the patio and the view was beautiful.

The entire experience at Beach Walk Cafe was outstanding from start to finish. As soon as we got there we were greeted by the valet guy and he welcomed us with open arms. the manager also welcomed us, smiled & made sure we were both comfortable. We got there a little early so he took us to the front deck of the restaurant where there was a beautiful sunset and beautiful weather while we waited on our table. The overall wait was maybe 5-10 minutes, then they sat us down on the side deck. The waiter was phenomenal, & kept us entertained the entire time. The wine was magnificent, the appetizers were to die for, and our entrees were sooooo delicious. I would highly recommend this place if anyone is visiting soon. The ambiance and the service & food were all 100% on point! The staff did such a great job. They get 1000 stars in my book!

Good as always. Will never book outside table again when it is very hot. It was pretty miserable since there weren’t any fans or air moving. Dropped a lot of money while being very uncomfortable. Manager was very nice. I would recommend some tower fans or something during the heat.
