Restaurants in the Destin area
People come to Destin for the seafood and as the World’s Luckiest Fishing Village Destin doesn’t disappoint. There are so many restaurants in the area that it would be impossible to name them all but we are going to list a few of our favorites.
Harbor Docks is a local mainstay serving fresh caught Gulf seafood and Asian inspired dishes.
Dewey Destin’s is another local seafood restaurant that serves the freshest seafood in a simple shack setting.
Elmo’s on 30A has a wonderful yet simple menu in a shack setting with live music most nights in season.
For a special occasion or a little bit more refined experience there are many options as well.
Beachwalk Cafe – Chef Tim Creehan continues to amaze with his culinary delights and we have never been disappointed.
Camile’s is a wonderful local restaurant and part of the same restaurant group as Harbor Docks, the best way to describe it might be as Harbor Docks older refined sister.
Fish out of Water is the one of the most elegant, sophisticated restaurants in the area. It is a little bit of a drive out to Watercolor but well worth it.
Sometimes you have a bunch of kids and just need to grab a quick bite before activities or a pizza for lunch.
Chick Fil A, McAlisters, Jimmy Johns, Panera Bread, Subway, Whataburger, Five Guys and Marcos Pizza are all in the area and just like the ones you have at home.
Some local alternatives are Fat Daddy’s pizza, Lilly Q’s, 98 BBQ, and as always Publix for the best subs.
Restaurants in Copper Mountain
Copper Mountain is a smaller resort area and the Village at Copper does not have many choices for dining. Most outlets are run by the mountain and the food is your typical ski resort fare.
In Copper we go to JJ’s Tavern and they have good pizza, sandwiches and steaks.
The CB Grille is also a good place to eat, it is more of a fine dining experience but the menu and wine list are very basic.
The good news about Copper Mountain is that it is in the center of Summit County and Vail, Breckenridge, Frisco, and Silverthorne/Dillon are all within about 20 minutes.
