Food was delicious! And the service was great! The menu was pricey, considering how limited it is. Should probably bump that dollar sign rating up to 3. The view was great, too!
We really enjoyed the view and the service.Our waiter,John,was fantastic and really made the dining experience fun.He had great recommendations and the food was good as well.
We showed up very late in the evening, so it’s hard to judge a “fresh seafood place” at 8:30 pm — so, I won’t. What we ate was first rate, fresh, and tasty. The staff is excellent — from manager to wait staff and bar — their personnel is excellent. Hell, the waitress told us to go to Donut Hole to eat pie afterwards (and we did — and it’s excellent). My one and only suggestion is to have more craft beers on tap..., yet I look forward to the next visit. And don’t forget to try their fries for $1 more... worth the investment.
Food was excellent! I had the grouper and shrimp
We had fished with Gulf Angler charters and had caught loads of fish all day. Capt. Preston and Cowboy recommended that we take our fresh fish to Brotulas and take advantage of their hook and cook. We were a party of 10 and were seated promptly. We lucked up and got and awesome guy named Jon as our server. He advised up on sides that would go best with our fish and he was right on point. The meal was prepared in a timely manner and served homestyle (which we loved). The fish was prepared grilled, blackened, and fried and was all delicious. All sides were yummy, but the brussel sprouts were my favorite. This was definitely the best meal we had during our 7 night stay in Destin. Kudos to Brotulas, the Chef, and Jon (freakazoid).
John was the best server we had in Destin. He was very attentive, fun, and made great conversation. The food was so good, I definitely recommend the seafood gumbo.
This place is amazing, hands down. I ordered a dozen raw oysters and a lobster tail salad, all of which exceeded my already high expectations! Shout out to my wonderful waitress Kristin, there aren't too many like her that I've come across! Exceptional service, very friendly and attentive. A++ to this restaurant :)
After a great morning of deep sea fishing, the chef prepared our catch for lunch. The fish was had grilled, blackened and fried and he added all his favorite sides. The fried green tomatoes on top of the fired grits was a fan favorite as well. Thanks, Chef, we'll be back.
I have lived in NW FL my entire life. I have eaten a lot of seafood and have to say that Brotula’s has the BEST fried shrimp I have ever had. We went there Saturday night and dinner was so good that I went back tonight with a group from work. Great service too!
Husband and I were ready for some awesome seafood after a long drive from Tennessee. Brotula's was a short walk from the hotel. Brotula's did not disappoint for fresh seafood!!! The grouper dish was simply delicious! Our waiter, Kristiyan, was very knowledgable with all items on the menu, even had pics on his cell to show us of some beautifully prepared food. Absolutely recommend for anyone visiting Destin, FL for a great, fresh seafood meal! ~Cheri G
Company Christmas Party!
What a great Experience for a family dinner. Great food and atmosphere!!
Stopped in one afternoon for the Happy Hour ($5 margaritas, 1/2 price wine and some beers, select appetizers) the waitstaff was SOO happy and helpful I stopped back the next day as well! Toni my server (day 2) was fantastic! I had wine, a delicious cajun shrimp queso, and mentioned that I had NEVER had raw oysters, she offered to bring me ONE to try.. I ordered 1/2 dozen, she walked me through the process (YES!! II LIKE THEM!) and was only charged $1 each.. FANTASTIC PLACE!
Highly recommend - I go to this restaurant every time I'm in Destin. Went during happy hour and got half off tuna tip and dollar oysters (both excellent menu items). Strawberry mint mojito was delicious. Our service by Garrett was fantastic - he was so attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. And the view is lovely at sunset!
LOVE this place! Best Sunday brunch in town
Sunday’s feature is bottomless champagne (mimosas, poinsettias, etc) and all you can eat crab or crawfish. Great environment. Eric was GREAT...very attentive.
Fantastic shrimp Po-Boys
Excellent view, service, and food!
I started out with a free bowl of Seafood Gumbo that we had a coupon for. The Gumbo was very good! We ordered the Boils. I had the Royal Reds Shrimp done with cajun spices and two sides, cheese grits and Brussel sprouts. My wife got the Gulf Shrimp Boil and one side. I also ordered a craft beer and my wife got an iced tea. I loved my meal but my wife didn’t like the way her shrimp were cooked. She boxed her shrimp and I will eat them cold with cocktail sauce. This often happens where I like my meal but my wife does not like hers. I would come back for the shrimp boil. My wife, I am not so sure.
Best fish tacos I have had to date!!
