    Food was spectacular! Both the snapper with corn risotto dish and the blackened snapper special were amazing! Both presentation and flavors. Our server Candace was lovely as well. We vote this best restaurant in Destin!

    Valentine’s Day dinner/anniversary dinner while staying at the Henderson Park Inn. Busy night, late reservation in the evening. Staff was friendly and attentive once we were noticed. Food was nice in flavor and portions-even with a set menu we were not disappointed. Fun atmosphere and views of the Gulf.

    The ambiance is wonderful! The dining area is small and intimate with a multi-million dollar view. The live music is just right for the setting. The food is excellent and the service even more so. The staff is very attentive and courteous. Gregory is an absolute joy, it is apparent that he loves what he does. Will definitely be back.

    Lovely place to eat!!! Fabulous fried zucchini sticks and corn and crab soup! Reasons I gave food 4 stars is they were out of St. Germain, which is my favorite and substituted apricot liqueur and drink which was not good. And lettuce on wedge salad was a little chewy.

    Our dinner experience was absolutely wonderful. The food was incredible, the service was impeccable, and the sounds of the crashing waves of the gulf while sitting on the porch were magical. The best Christmas Eve we have had in many years.

    We stayed at The Henderson Park Inn over Christmas and had dinner here on Christmas Eve. It's a comfy restaurant located in the Inn with indoor and outdoor tables. The Prix Fixe menu was perfect. Options for seafood and non seafood eaters. The service was terrific. Would recommend for anyone visiting Destin looking for a beautiful seaside restaurant that caters to adults.

    This place was amazing!! I reserved a table for my parents for their Christmas gift, and they had so many good things to say about Beach Walk. They requested a table outside so they could hear the ocean, and one of the staff even brought my mom a blanket to their table so she didn’t get cold! I highly recommend coming here.

    It is a tradition for us to spend our wedding anniversary at the Beachwalk Cafe. We are almost never disappointed. I did not know that my grouper Vince was named in memory of Vince Gill's and Amy Grant's wedding which took place there.

    Great location. Pretty bad everything else. Outdoor tables wet from recent rain. No one seated us or prepared a table. The food is average diner quality. Service took forever. It’s right on the beach though. We won’t return even so.

    The best experience ever! The building is quaint and charming like a Cape Cod Cottage. The restaurant is so enchanting and beautiful. And the best part? The view!!! The restaurant has direct access to the beach. We came here for breakfast a few days ago then back to dinner tonight. Both the sunrise and sunset from the restaurant were breathtaking. The breakfast chef was super friendly. The food is delicious. Dinner was amazing. The bread pudding is everything. We met TC who sat us at our table and came back during our dinner to check on us and chat. He is by far one of the most engaging, gracious hosts I've had the pleasure of meeting. He made our experience 10x better. We can't wait to be back and stay at the Henderson Inn as well.
