Great view but the service was a bit off, steaks under cooked and potatoes were room temperature at best. If it wasn’t for the amazing view I would have been very disappointed spending $180 on dinner for just 2 of us.
Beautiful views and good food. Service was good, I would definitely go back!
Everything was perfect...we will eat there every time we are in Destin...😃
The food was good for the most part, my steak was undercooked, my husbands was exactly how he ordered it, he was pleased. The desserts were all delicious as well.
The view of the sunset during dinner was amazing. Our server was very attentive and the food was great!
Excellent food, great atmosphere, very good service.
Great restaurant and great service, Blake, who assisted the waiters/waitresses outside that evening was absolutely great. He took multiply pictures of us (which I am sure annoyed him) but he didn't even blink and took every picture with a big smile on his face. Thank you for the great experience.
Awesome food and service. Took my wife for our anniversary and will come back again. Highly recommend.
I was disappointed in the cost of the small portions. I had snapper and the taste was rather bland and very small portion. No veggies w it just some sort of potato cake.
The nicest thing about the place are the wait staff. Fabulous group there.
The atmosphere is loud but warm and inviting. Great views of the beach.
I may only be back for a glass of wine, but not dinner.
Wonderful food and amazing service couple days with spectacular dining views make this a go-to restaurant in Destin. I cannot recommend this place enough.
When I arrived, I was asked if I preferred outdoor vs. indoor seating. I asked for outdoor, then was seated inside. My waiter was very attentive. The food was prepared well and was high quality. I asked for a key lime pie to go. Unfortunately when I arrived home, I saw that I was given the cheesecake instead. This was very disappointing.
Waitress could not have cared less about us. Took our order, food and drinks together, and did not return with anything for 20 minutes. The apps did not arrive for thirty minutes after we ordered them. Sh never apologized for the long wait. Never smiled. Never asked us how our apps and entrees were. The manager did, however, and one of us did not like the sweet dressing on the salad, which was not eaten. He apologized and asked if we wanted something else. We said no, and he of course took it off the bill. Throughout the night, the waitress was cold, short, and rushed - almost inconvenienced by us. Sad, because the other waitresses were all over their tables and people, constantly caring about their enjoyment. I am a full time resident, and this was very disappointing; hence the 4% tip.
Was going for the farm to table vibe, was disappointed our appetizers and main meal were all fried, when it didn't really mention it would be fried on the menu. Too much breading for our liking on the Grouper.
Staff was friendly and attentive. The food was amazing, fresh scallops, creamy grits, and delectable desserts. Server was focused and receptive on food allergies.
This was awesome. Fulfilled our dream. Dinner with Sunset views out the window overlooking a gorgeous gulf beach. Food was outstanding, a foodie delight. All exquisitely prepared and presented. The servers were attentive and helpful and pleasant company. Wonderful ambience in very pleasant surroundings. A+ in my book. You will love it!
Such a nice experience from beginning to end! It’s quiet, romantic and right on the beach. Most important the food was great! Perfect for date night or special occasion!
One of the finest high-end restaurants my wife and I have ever experienced.
A delightful experience for food lovers. A beautiful facility with a great view of the beach and Gulf of Mexico. Residents in the area are very lucky to have such a great restaurant. Everything was perfect except at the end of a great dinner we had an uncomfortably long wait for our check. Servers are very friendly. Highly recommended for those willing and able to spend a substantial amount for a great dinning experience. Our dinner for two wIth a good bottle of wine was over $200. Valet parking only, but just a short five-minute stroll from the new and luxurious Henderson Beach Resort and Spa.
Was looking forward to this dinner. Given the reviews, we really thought it would be special. While the service (and our server) was excellent, our table was unusual by any standard, and the food was good but not great. So the good news is the service here is fabulous. Caring, attentive, and professional....every person we encountered was doing a first class job. That’s the good part...here is the “meh”part. I made a mistake of not asking for a window table. This put us into a weird two person table directly at the entrance of the restaurant. It’s a very weird table.....where you feel on display and have to deal with every person popping their nose into the restaurant....you feel like you are half in and half out of the restaurant. A good lesson for me, to always ask for window....a poor choice to place a table..... Next was the food and dessert. It just wasn’t prepared well....my husbands seared tuna was basically sashimi. While we love sashimi, he ordered seared tuna. Tuna was very high quality...however....some areas were not seared at all, and some had such a low sear, that it basically wasn’t done properly. My snapper was cold and dry. And the potato round it was on was unflavored, and very dense. For a restaurant with these ratings, to me it was surprisingly poor kitchen execution. Then came dessert. They clearly have a freeze thaw issue with their freezers. The crunchy crystals in the ice cream are a classic indicator of a poorly functioning freezer. I did mention this to our server....she thanked me for my input. So overall, it was a good, but not great evening.
Phenomenal. Went for the first time for my husband’s birthday. We had reservations and were seated right away. Customer service was exceptional. Food left us speechless; quality of ingredients were fresh, flavor hit the spot, beautiful presentation, good sized portions for fine dining establishment. Overall executed perfectly. We ordered a bottle of Malbec, Kung Pao Shrimp appetizer, Grouper Vince, the Beach Walk Filet, Banana Cream Pie, and the Cheesecake of the Day (butterfinger). They even put a candle in my husband’s desert for the occasion. We were so pleased with our experience and will definitely return and recommend to others. Reservations highly recommended as they seem booked and have an intimate space.
A lovely restaurant, especially for a special occasion. The food is delicious and the atmosphere just right. Our service was a little off this one time, but we loved having leftovers taken on to your valeted car !
This is our fourth time to the restaurant, never disappoints, food is fantastic. In the summer the view of the gulf is awesome.
Outstanding food and service. One of the best in Destin. Highly recommend!
Great barrel fish special and red snapper.
Great freshly prepared and tasty food. Second year in a row going to dinner here on a Groupon (what a deal!) between Christmas and New Year’s during our Holiday beach visit. Excellent all the way around from the soups to the salads to the the fish entrees. Highly recommended and we will be back during our next beach visit!
The MOST wonderful dinner we have had in a long time! We went for our 48th Anniversary and were not disappointed. Loved it! Do NOT miss this wonderful restaurant!
Excellent food, great service. Parking is limited but valet is available, so make sure to bring some cash to tip.
Have been coming to Henderson Park Inn for a number of years and it is always special. The inn is always perfectly decorated for the season. The food Is excellent and the portions are ample. Service is top notch, friendly and you are never rushed. Used a Groupon this time which made the whole evening one to remember.
Incredible. Simply lovely and a quiet setting for my husband and I to enjoy an evening. Our server suggested several items which we enjoyed, however the Grouper Vince really stole the show. Between the two of us, we ordered a lovely bottle of Pinot Noir, shared the Kung poa shrimp appetizer, each ordering a spinach salad and a caprese salad. Meals included the lamb chops and the grouper. I am not a huge fan of fish dishes, but this tied with one of the best dinners I have ever had. Ending with creme brûlée and keg lime pie, neither of us were dismayed in any way. A very intimate setting with a wonderful server who knew the menu and the items well. Fantastic recommendations and a wonderful evening which ended in a single rose handed to me by the staff. You have won over this worldly travelled and her fussy husband. We will return, gladly.
The food was amazing. Detail and thought was put into every dish. They were very accommodating to gluten free and vegetarian needs. Mitchell our server provided excellent service. This is some place I would come to every time I am in Destin. It is right on the water and has a wonderful atmosphere.
The Beach Walk at Henderson Park Inn was absolutely fantastic! The food was great - we both had the filet mignon. It was so tender and tasty. The setting is so beautiful and dining room comfortable. Our server, Dustin S, really took care of us. It was our wedding anniversary and Dustin even arranged to have a rose brought to my wife. He didn't miss a beat. He was there to pour our wine at the perfect time. It was our first visit. We cannot wait to come again!
We are also looking forward to spending some time at the Inn itself. It is beautiful!
We dined at Beach Walk for a late anniversary celebration. We arrived early and there was not a problem seating us early. The server greeted us promptly and was very pleasant during the entire meal. The food was excellently prepared. We order desserts and one was complimentary for our anniversary.
our second visit and was one again disappointed fod quality for the price
This was our best dining experience while vacationing in Destin. The service was excellent The food was superb. And the view was fabulous. We will definitely dine there on our next visit.
We arrived early and had a drink on the deck overlooking the water. Beautiful setting. Every dish, from appetizer to salad to entrée to dessert, was terrific. While our server was knowledgeable and efficient, she was a bit to-the-point. It did not deter us from enjoying our meal. We will be back the next time we're in the area.
5 stars from the minute I sat down. Best butternut squash bisque, fresh bread, spinach salad , grilled mahi mahi and French pressed coffee with the freshest key lime pie❤❤ service excellent. Perfect martini and excellent wine choice. All around best meal all week. No wonder ranked #1 in Destin.
Great service and great wood. Highly recommend.
Our favorite restaurant for special occasions. The food and service and staff are excellent and the views of sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico make this establishment even more special. We can't say enough about the consistently wonderful , beautifully presented plates of the most delicious food anywhere! We will be back again soon!
I understand why "Beach Walk" is the #1 restaurant in Destin. If you are looking for a small
restaurant with first class food and view this is where you should eat. We were staying at the
Henderson Inn and the food was so outstanding that we ate there 3 nights. The duck was the best that we had ever had and the spinach salad was just on point. It was so nice and quiet
and that made dining unique for Destin. Outdoor seating is also available.
Always great food & service.
Especially good cosmos & other drinks.
Beautiful beachfront dining.
Not for kids.
A definite break from all the fried foods at the beach.
This was the absolute best dining experience I've ever had with my family! The staff members were so courteous and genuinely welcoming. I ordered lobster for dinner, & it was prepared to perfection! I did, however, have a "not so good" bed of rice with my meal. The rice consisted of a combination of over, and under cooked texture. It was a small disappointment for such an amazing evening, and honestly the ONLY NEGATIVE experience that my Mother, sisters and I had. Henderson Park Inn is definitely worthy of another three hour drive for dinner, & we anticipate our next dining experience there!
