They lost our Open Table reservation and proceeded to make us wait for a table only to sit us in the very back corner. We then waited for 20 minutes for anyone to take our order. The food was tasty, but we got our food an hour and a half after we sat… would NOT recommend.

It is a cute restaurant that has been freshly updated though it may need some fabrics or wall hangings to dampen the sound. It was very loud. We had the bangin shrimp and mozzarella stick in wonton appetizers. They were both very good. The salad was also delicious with the sesame ginger dressing. Our server was busy and not attentive. She seemed a bit irritated with our presence. Our drinks took a long time to come out. Our friends had Old Fashioned cocktails that were pretty weak. One salad came out on time the other was much later. I had the grouper Nantua. It was just ok, lots of corn of which I'm not a fan. The food was good for the most part but not great. Not a good value. I would try it again and hope for a different waitress and choose differently off the menu.

I had seen a small blurb in a local paper so I felt good about trying it out. We were early for our reservation but got seated right away. There was a short menu of specialty cocktails so I enjoyed the basil gin martini...a pleasant taste and nod to the restaurant name. My husband was disappointed not to find N.A. beer available but he was adequately satisfied with club soda and lime. One of the owners offered to go to the grocery and actually did so but by then we were completing our meal (thanks for the effort Janae). I had a nicely done steak on spinach salad with the only negative a little too much feta. My husband enjoyed the panhandle grouper which was served on sauteed spinach for a welcome change from rice or pasta. The bread pudding was dense and flavorful in chocolate cinnamon sauce. Although we are not locals, we hope to return on our next visit to the area.

I think that the prices are really reasonable. I had grouper dishes both times as well as the hotdang shrimp appetizer. Loved both! First time we had grouper Nantua- also fabulous. Love the very different recipes using fresh fish- such a relief form Destin where every restaurant is doing grouper destin or some similar dish. Salads are very reasonable add ons as opposed to Destin's typical 9-12 dollar salads. I never feel a meal is complete without a salad. They have a nice wine list with a great Greek white wine that is excellent with Fish. Check out their daily happy hour- you can make a meal out of apps. We will make this a regular place for us even with the long drive from our home in Destin. Service was also excellent- they did not bring our entrees on top of our salad. what a relief- everytime we eat out in destin as very expensive restaurants- they are bringing our entrees on top of our apps or salads- even when they promise they won't do that! We have learned to wait and not give them our entree order until finished with first course. Sad especially when the restaurants are way more expensive than where we lived prior (think big SE city). It was so refreshing to NOt have this happen at B&B's.
