    Stop by early for drinks on the beach. Staff was nice even in passing. Waitress knew that menu and drinks like the back of her hand. The way she described it makes me wanting to try the entire menu lol. Great vibes great atmosphere.

    We're locals and have been coming here for years. A lot of the menu items that were winners are no longer there. Honestly, the food is good, but the value isn't great because of the 30A/Destin crowd prices. Our server was super nice, but we knew he was new. A simple G&T was Gin and Soda with a lemon. Not a huge deal, but at 14 bucks a drink, one should be able to get a simple mixer right. I didn't have the heart to tell him since he was super nervous. All in all, the ambiance is amazing and we like to go for sentimental reasons, but in reality it's a bill, bill and half, not 250 ish for two.

    Food and service was excellent. The ambience was ok but not great. However, the reason for this is we visited during February and only inside dining is available. They have a significant amount of outdoor dining right on the beach. We walked outside after dinner and were very impressed with the possibility of eating outside in the future.

    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 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.

    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.
