Beach Walk is nestled within the acclaimed Henderson Park Inn and what a lovely setting for a sunset dinner. From the front of the house to the back, the service provided was outstanding and the staff's attention to detail was apparent throughout the establishment. My husband and I arrived early and we were promptly offered cocktails and a tour of the back porch/waterfront seating area. The views from the porch are unlike anywhere else that we have dined in this area and our table was prepared for us in plenty of time for the sunset. Our meal was exquisite and the chef is quite creative in the preparation of all that the menu offered. The Roasted Tomato Soup tasted as fresh as a garden, the Pecan Grouper was delicate and perhaps the best that we have ever had, the Venison was so tender and flavorful, and the Key Lime Pie was an aerated treat that did not cause our buttons to pop! Beach Walk is a hidden gem that we highly recommend to adults who are looking for a nice, relaxing, quiet evening spent by the emerald coast. We cannot wait to return!

Great experience!! Food was good, atmosphere was great, service was great as well. I had the red snapper and it was good. Felt that it needed a little more seasoning though. The legacy tomatoes that was served with it were so good and the shrimp and clam chowder was delicious. If I have the opportunity I would definitely eat here again.

In the past Beach Walk has been my favorite "go to" restaurant in Destin. The atmosphere, service and food have been spectacular. However, this time the outdoor dinning and service were excellent, but the food was not as good as I anticipated. They must have changed chefs. It was good, but not great.

We enjoyed dinner outside last night on our Spring break. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive. She recommended the fried eggplant topped with crabmeat for an appetizer and it was delicious. I ordered the house salad with green goddess. The bread was baked fresh by a local bakery and was superb. The Pork loin for main on entree was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, food and service experience.

This was either a bad night for the restaurant or an inexperienced waiter, but service and supervision seemed to be lacking. or something else was wrong. The food and ambiance were wonderful, but one needs to feel wanted.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
