Toni was a fantastic server with knowledge of the menu and lots of suggestions for our meal. We had the snapper which came with a great story from their know your catch card on the entree. Had the wedge and a bread that was fantastic. Price was better than most in the area. Will definitely make it back.
The title says it all, right? We came on a Sunday afternoon. We enjoyed the adult beverages, which were delicious...but lacked all the bar snacks youâ€™ve come to expect from a good Bloody Mary (one olive, one pickled bean...yawn). Of course we had a dozen raw oysters to start. My date had shrimp and grits which she deemed excellent. I had the gumbo which was spot on...it is on the spicy side, which I prefer, so if youâ€™re sensitive to spicy itâ€™s prolly not for you. Staff was friendly, atmosphere was great, parking was plentiful. Jazz up those Bloody Maryâ€™s and get 5 stars!
Amazing! We got a few appetizers for happy hour- amazing pretzels and garlic bread. Then we shared a 1 lb. Royal red shrimp Cajun boil between 3 people with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was incredible!!! Best food ive had in Destin. The rest of the restaurants are overrated and over priced!
Great food and atmosphere. Right on the marina in Destin.
The atmosphere, service and food was excellent! Very friendly. Every time I have been to this place my experience gets better and better. Thank you Connor who was our server She was outstanding!
Food was really good, priced reasonably We sat by the window at sunset & it was incredible. Would visit again on our return trip to ft Walton beach
Found this place empty early on a Sunday evening, even though the other nearby seafood restaurants with a view of the water were busy. Tried this place because of their create-your-own seafood boils. You select the type of seafood (at different prices), sides, seasonings, and sauces and 15-20 minutes later you get a platter as you specified. We tried the royal red shrimp - very large and sweet and easy to peel and eat. Overall, the boils were delicious. With a pound of shrimp and a side or two, about $25-30. Service was incredibly accommodating given the number of questions we had.
HIGH FIVE! Lived the ambiance and food was excellent. Jon took amazing care of us and was very engaging. Service was perfect.
food was delicious.
The wife and I always looking for a new place to try. Came to Brotulas for late lunch and was greeted with nice service. Great food pricing and awesome flavored shrimp tacos and blackened grouper sandwich. Also had fried pickles for appetizer.
My co worker and i went for lunch. Amazing view out back. Our server Jon was very knowledgeable of the menu and of the Destin area. He was awesome to talk to. The food...OMG soo fresh!!! Tasted like they just pulled the fish out of the ocean and the mashed potatoes made me want to order another meal to go lol. Priced well...if you want a REALLY GOOD MEAL this is the place to go.
Es un buen lugar para cenar ,sobretodo si te gustan los mariscos, con una vista espectacular
Everything about Brotulaâ€™s was a hit! Jon had some wonderful suggestions on what to order - he knew the menu very well. The fried pickles started our group off on the right foot. The meals were beyond amazing - some of the best weâ€™ve had in Destin. The Grouper was outstanding on the mashed potatoes that were second to none. My husband enjoyed the shrimp and grits. The chef was kind enough to step out of the kitchen to explain how he makes the grits, which was an added bonus. We had several children in our group and Jon was very accommodating!! We will be back (maybe even tomorrow).
Fantastic food and service. When I first walked in, I was blown away by the atmosphere. Lots of charm and great outdoor seating. Little did I know that the atmosphere would soon be an afterthought as compared to the rest of the dining experience. Jon, our waiter, was quick to offer up great conversation and food recommendations. The shrimp and grits were delicious. 10 out of 10. Cant wait to go back!
This was my first visit to Destin in October, so I was very pleased with the wait time at all of the local restaurants (little to none). We went to Brotula's for dinner and we were seated at a table with a beautiful view of the marina. Our waiter, Jon, was an excellent server, and after talking with us for a few minutes, he asked if he could order for us. He told us if we weren't 100% pleased with our "surprise" meals, he would take them back and let us order. No need for that! Snapper for me and grouper for my husband... quite possibly the best meal I've had at a seafood restaurant ever. We plan on going back to Brotula's whenever we visit this area, and we highly recommend it to everyone else. (Ask for Jon. You won't be disappointed!)
Need some good comfort food? Brotula's got that! While we usually enjoy their fish options, we went shrimp this time. My wife and my father in law got the mac and cheese with shrimp. He got fried and she got grilled. I went with shrimp and grits. Our friendly server Madison warned us we would need boxes, and she wasn't kidding! Awesome portions and fantastic flavors. The folks there do things right time and again, and this is a regular stop for us on our travels. Kudos to Brotula's for another great meal!
We made it in time to watch the sunset and grab a table on the deck. When we ordered the New Orleans shrimp appetizer, Aric steered us to the Red Shrimp, instead. While a little more than the appetizer, it was the best recommendation ever!! 20 of the biggest and sweetest shrimp weâ€™ve had in a LONG time. He suggested the seasoning for us and they were perfect. After eating them we had to rethink our dinner choices, as we knew we couldnâ€™t each have an entree. Aric helped again and we ended up ordering a cup of gumbo (delicious roux and lots of seafood and not too much rice) and he split up the Floridian Grouper for us to share. The grouper melted in your mouth and the creamy sauce was not too heavy at all. The mashed potatoes were really good, but we just couldnâ€™t eat them. Aric was great!! Very personable, knows the menu extremely well and made the evening special. Weâ€™ve already talked about going back while here so we can get the shrimp again. Weâ€™ll be sure to ask for Aric. Also, shout out to the manager who checked on us a couple of times and was always helping her team and making sure the guests were happy. You donâ€™t see that happen very often these days! Great evening!
My husband and I both are in the customer service industry and we were blown away - not only by the level of service that we received from our server Aric, but the food as well. 10 outta 10 folks, youâ€™d be crazy not to try this place while in Destin. Aric, thank you for reminding us what incredible customer service is. Well done Brotulas.
Very good meal.
