The Emerald Coast has no shortage of huge chain restaurants that serve thousands upon thousands of visitors in a matter of months, and you can be sure to spend $25+ a person on a half-decent meal. But when you are looking for somewhere unique, local, and delicious for your next evening out, these restaurants are sure to impress:
1. The Craft Bar, Destin
One of Destin’s newest gastropubs (craft beer+food), 10/10 on ambience, feels like a hip, big-city hotspot! The food is out of this world, and their craft beer and cocktail selection is to die for.
2. The Perfect Pig, Seagrove Beach
Delightful cafe and gourmet market in the heart of 30A!
3. Sushimoto, Miramar Beach
Without a doubt, some of the best sushi in the area. Their menu has a variety of creative, in-house rolls too!
George’s is 10/10 for ambience, with gorgeous white porches, Alys beach striped umbrellas, and the cool ocean breeze.
