Best Places to Eat in Destin
While at Brandcation, we had the opportunity to eat at some pretty amazing places. I’m not food connoisseur, but I know good food when I see and taste it! I’m going to outline the places we ate at while there and what I had. Overall, I was very impressed with the food.


La Famiglia Destin
La Famiglia at the Harborwalk location in Destin was where we ate the first time. It was very conveniently located right next to the Emerald Grande and we just had to walk down from our rooms. The view was spectacular and we had some great company. They definitely fed us well and had generous portion sizes. Our meal included things like bread, pasta, fish and decadent desserts. Below is a picture of their connoli as well as our dinner view. Isn’t it pretty?

Grande Vista Bar and Grill
We ate the the Grande Vista Bar and Grill a few different times. Once for breakfast and once for lunch. The food both times was fresh and delicious. The service here was quick and they were very friendly. I had a grand slam type breakfast and a delicious chicken, bacon and avocado sandwich for lunch. You can also order the food poolside or from your room which is an added convenience. The bar and grill is located inside the Emerald Grande.

Harry T’s
Harry T’s was the destination for lunch after a fun morning snorkeling. I think we were all famished. I enjoyed delicious fish tacos and wouldn’t have minded coming back to this restaurant again. They had salads, burgers and more on their menu. The service was also quick here with an oceanside view.

Jim ‘N Nicks
I really love good barbecue and Jim ‘N Nicks gives you just they. They catered a delicious meal to us while on our Pirate Excursion. My favorite part of the meal was the pork sliders. The pork was tender and their barbecue sauce delicious! I wish they had Jim ‘N Nicks out west where I live!

I don’t think I realized that Starbucks had breakfast sandwiches on top of their hot drinks. I sampled some of their sandwiches and then ended up going back the last morning we were there to get another one. They really are delicious. We also enjoyed delicious coffee cakes which you see pictured below.

Crab Island Cantina
Last, but certainly not least was the Crab Island Cantina. I love good Mexican food so I have to say this one of my favorite places. The portion sizes were huge, the menu prices were affordable and the service was top notch. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a large group served so fast and efficiently. I had a shrimp quesadilla and it was fantastic. The portion sizes were so big I couldn’t have possibly eaten it all by myself. There was also live music and dancing which added for a fun atmosphere.
