Graffiti Restaurant opened over 20 years ago in the small fishing village of Destin, FL. As the city grew in popularity, so did Graffiti and its need to expand. The next natural step was to add The Funky Blues Shack, a live music venue, winner of Best Music Venue 3 years in a row! Our family-friendly restaurant is as impressive as the décor itself!

Fun, funky vibe and decor. Food was good-only recommendation is to add a salad inclusion with pasta dinner. Olive oil and garlic and cheese was great with the bread. Very attentive service and good portions. Drinks were reasonably priced. We will return.

Service was excellent as was the food. The fillet was perfectly cooked and the garlic mashed potatoes were the perfect compliment. The band's volume made conversation across the table impossible and left my ears ringing for the rest of the night. The music was fine but the volume was just too high.

Food was delicious!! Our only complaint is that the food came too fast. Our main course was served before we finished our appetizer. We ordered the Fried Green Tomatoes and they were the best I have ever had but we hadn't even finished one each when the main course was brought out. The salad came with the main course and was drowned in dressing. Otherwise it was a very good first time visit.

Nice place but a little pricey for the food. They have to pay for the live entertainment some how. Pizza oven was down so you couldn't order any pizzas. Overall we still had a good experience but did not feel like I got the true bang for my buck .

The first time at Graffiti’s and was pleasantly surprised how much we liked it. The food, service and atmosphere were top notch. The best part was after dinner was the entertainment. It was nice that we weren’t rushed after we were finished with our dinner. We will definitely be back.

I have an intolerance to gluten and the staff was very knowledgeable. My husband and I have fresh fish and it and the garlic mashed potatoes which were awesome. We sat on the band side so it was noisy with music which we liked. We ate around 6:30 and it was nice to have the band start at 7:00 so even though very tired we were able to enjoy about an hour of music.

The only downsize is that the Open Table app was not working as the hostess said all reservations, including ours, from Open Table are not showing up for reasons they cannot figure out. Luckily it was a week day and they had "open tables".

Combine the great food, excellent service, the decor and wonderful blues and you get a fantastic dining experience. I had the fettuccine bolognese and my wife had shrimp and scallops rigatoni. Both were perfectly prepared.

We loved this restaurant! It has a very cool vibe with the funky artwork, the dim lighting and great blues band we listened to! The house roasted pecan blue cheese dressing and mixed green house salad was awesome! My daughter had pizza which had an amazing gourmet crust; I had the Paneed Chicken (similar to chicken piccata) which was amazing as well. I ordered the smoked gouda grits which were awesome! Would love to go back! Also enjoyed the garlic, olive oil dipping sauce for the breadsticks!

We went to Graffiti's for the first time in April and loved it. We decided when we came back this trip that we wanted to go again and my sister had never been. We wanted her to experience the fun and food. She really enjoyed it also and now is bringing friends sometime in the near future. I also had some cousins staying in Destin at the same time we were and recommended that they go while they were there. Graffitis is our new place to go to whenever we're in Destin. The people are great, our waitress was awesome the music fantastic. Thanks for all your hard work. It really is a great place for food and music!

I’m writing this to recognize out server James. Without him our experience would have been forgettable. We found most everything else to be quite average except the price which seemed somewhat high. Thank you James for saving our evening.

First trip to Graffiti & The Funky Blues Shack. We went for the live music and found that their dinner menu is outstanding. We sat in the restaurant side and had a great view of the stage. There is a happy hour in the bar side. We will definitely be back and try one of their pizzas that our friends rave about.

Food was just ok for what we paid. Took 50 minutes to get food, but listened to the live music so helped pass the time. Went at 7 pm, told no pizza dough 30 minutes after ordering so one in our party ended up with just a flatbread pizza, which she said was good anyway. Wife’s blackened grouper was so salty she could barely eat it. My hamburger bun was hard and crunchy because it was toasted/grilled too much. We aren’t one’s to complain during a meal, so we just eat what we can and just choose not to return to a restaurant that we have mediocre or bad food experience at. So, unfortunately when we return to Destin we will not eat here again. Sorry.

Told us about the specials - then came back and said they were out of the special. Couldn’t make the mixed drink I wanted because they were out of some of the ingredients, wanted a Caesar salad, but they didn’t have anchovies.
Good pizza! Service was good.

We were at the beach for a ladies beach trip. This was one of the few places in the area that took reservations and we had a group of six. It was so great to show up, quickly be seated, and served quickly as well. The food was wonderful. We had appetizers of brussel sprouts and fried green tomatoes and along with the fabulous bread sticks we were almost full before our meal arrived. However, the food definitely did not disappoint and the atmostphere, with the live music was very fun! We truly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely return on our next beach trip!

Fun, yummy dinner. We knew nothing about the restaurant, just found it on Open Table. Thought name was catchy and looked fun, menu looked good and We needed somewhere w obvious gluten free choices. Pleasantly surprised...fun atmosphere, great live band, good attentive service and good food!
