My wife and i enjoyed every moment we spent at this restaurant, from the service, to the waiters to the food, it was all absolutely perfect. We had the scallops for our appetizer, i had the Venison entree and she had the snapper and we finished the meal off with a piece of Key Lime Pie.....What a food event we a part of....Truly a special meal in a special place....the sunset on the outside porch wasn't half bad either.....We will be back....

This was an ideal place for a nice date night. The view of the ocean was peaceful, our server Rochelle was delightful and attentive and the chef provided an excellent meal. I highly recommend the fried green tomatoes. Definitely coming back on our next vacation to Destin.

We had an amazing dinner here! We had a 6:00pm reservation and requested to sit outside. The sunset was fantastic and the food was too! We had the scallop and the shrimp appetizers, Caesar and spinach salads, grouper and chicken entrees with creme brûlée for dessert. They have a great wine list so we chose one of our favorite Belle Glos Pinot Noir’s to complement our food. The ambience was great, felt like we were dining by ourselves on the beach. Highly recommend the restaurant!! It was a special occasion made better by great food, service and atmosphere.

The hostess was very nice and seated us right away. We had a table outside with a beautiful view of the beach during sunset. The waitress was very knowledgeable of the dishes and made great recommendations.

The swordfish was amazing, as were all the dishes. Would absolutely recommend.

The evening began well. My starter of seared scallops on a bed of potatoes was excellent. However, the main course of peppered seared tuna was overcooked (I asked for rare) and much too heavily peppered. Others in our group had meals that were regarded as "OK" except for the chocolate dessert that was returned as it had the consistency of concrete. Service throughout was excellent and the restaurant is quiet and pleasantly decorated.

Great food- stunning view- terrific service. We we served an Amuse Bouche- and then delicious bread served with oil vinegar and a heap of herbed parmesan. Caesar salad had eggplant croutons and fish of the day was fresh and delicious. Appreciate the valet parking.Get there early sit outside and watch the sunset!

We've been here several times. The appetizers and my wife's shrimp and grits were all very good. My ribeye was full of gristle, the mashed potatoes loaded with garlic and cooked carrots were not good. For the price go to Flemings. The food there is better. If you want the view then Beachwalk is hard to beat.

Very romantic place to have dinner with your significant other. Dress is business casual or a nice dinner jacket - I wore a dinner jacket and didn’t feel out of place with the other guests. The food is fabulous and the service is world class. It’s also a quiet restaurant with limited seating so you need to book a reservation in advance.

Restaurant was incredible. The only problem was they never got the reservation from Opentable even with confirmation number, but restaurant was kind enough to make room for us outside on a beautiful night. Do not trust Opentable if it’s an important night, 2nd time this has happened. Call the restaurant directly to confirm!

The food should have been tastier for the price this restaurant charges. Anyway, we decided to eat at this restaurant because we thought the menu was good. AND WE THOUGHT THE MANAGER WOULD HONOR OUR OPEN TABLE REWARDS CARD AFTER OUR DINNER, BUT SHE WOULD NOT...EVEN THOUGH IT WAS LISTED ON OPEN TABLE'S SITE AS A PARTICIPATING RESTAURANT. We would have never chosen this restaurant if we couldn't afford to pay the high prices for their meals, but we did expect the manager to accept our MasterCard Open Table rewards card. In fact, we spent about $200.00 there, yet the manager made a big deal of not acceptable our card in front of our friends, and her restaurant co-workers. She embarrassed us, and she should be ashamed of herself for doing so...seriously, over $20.00...never again... and we definitely would not recommend!!!

Seafood was very good. Cowboy Ribeye steak was not cooked as ordered and had to be sent back. I was told Chef did not know how to cook meat to “medium-rare-plus”. Most chefs at better restaurants understand that terminology completely and accommodate customers. I was told I couldn’t order a $65 steak that way! I was disappointed and I ended up having to send the steak back because it was undercooked.

We all enjoyed our food and drinks. Two of us had the red fish special which was fantastic. Shrimp and grits were also very good. Service was good and when there was a mistake with our drinks they were quick to correct. All of the staff were friendly and seemed to really want us to enjoy our evening.

I’ve always loved this restaurant, in that they take great pride in their food and service. Beachwalk will always be my favorite place on the emerald coast and I hope that if you’re ever in the area you take the time to make it a memorable experience and dine here 💖🍽🥂

This is our all time favorite place to eat in Destin. It never disappoints. The service is always impeccable and the food is divine. I had the grouper special and my husband had the beef medallion special topped with lobster. They were both amazing. For dessert we had the chocolate soufflé. Incredible!!! I love the cozy atmosphere inside during the colder months and the view from the outdoor dining area is breathtaking during nicer weather.

Was really looking forward to this place after visiting here twice before. The lack of fresh seafood was disappointing and for the price the food was not executed as well as we had experienced in the past. Not sure if we’ll be back a fourth time. The location and view are unbeatable and the deserts are always delicious.

The restaurant is cozy - an enjoyable atmosphere. We were not pleased with our entrees as they were both (one fish and one chicken) much too salty and the chicken was dry and over cooked. The service was pleasant but very slow.

The seating was prompt, server was attentive, but not hovering.
Ambiance is always nice at the Cafe'
New chief since we were there last, so little changes in the food arrangement.
Entree was simply excellent.
The shared option, roasted brussels sprouts were a little late coming out with the food & were a little overly roasted, otherwise ok. The only part of the meal, that was just ok.
New York Style Cheesecake with a twist, interesting and very tasty.
