The Ocean Club is our favorite place for dinner in Destin. It is a fine dining restaurant located in Topsail, near the entrance to the Sandestin resort. It is more of a local place and the tourists are really missing out! They have amazing food! They also have live music and dancing!

Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood

Seagar’s is located in the Hilton Sandestin Hotel. It is always a treat eating here. It is expensive, so we try and save it for special occasions.

We always start with the crab cake. It is seriously delicious.

wedge salad

We usually sit at the bar when we come for dinner. They do not serve the Caesar salad in the bar, so we usually get the wedge. Baby iceberg lettuce, oven-roasted tomatoes, bacon, radish, pickled red onion, croutons, and house-made Ranch or Blue Cheese Dressing.

Fat Clemenza’s

plate of garlic knots

Fat Clemenza’s is our favorite Italian restaurant in Destin. We’ve been eating here for years and still love it. The food is fantastic and they have good service. Fat Clemenzas is open for lunch and dinner. I suggest reservations for dinner. The dining room is small and they are ALWAYS packed.

You MUST start with an order of Fat Clemenza’s homemade garlic rolls (5 per order) – they are the house specialty. I dream about these rolls!

fried ravioli

Toasted Ravioli – Breaded ravioli with Italian bread crumbs stuffed with ricotta cheese and parmesan cheese. Ask for a side of vodka sauce with them. SO good!

veal with pasta

Veal Saltimbocca – baked in a mushroom/veal sauce with Prosciutto Di Parma and melted fresh mozzarella cheese served with pasta.

lasagna in a baking dish

Housemade Meat Lasagna. It is listed as a customer favorite. One bite and you will know why. It is a lot of food and leftovers are equally delicious reheated.

pepperoni pizza

All pizzas are made from homemade dough, homemade pizza sauce, hand-tossed by their master pizza chef from Italy, and fired in a wood-burning oven at 900 degrees.

We sat at the bar and had a ringside set to the pizza show! They make a lot of pizza. It is some of the best in town.

plate of tiramisu dessert

If you still have room after your delicious meal, give the Tiramisu a try. It is fantastic!
