Currently the best Destin has to offer is?

Yeah we like good food, good drinks and good service. I'm I asking for too much? Haven't been to Destin in 2 two years and hope to get an update. Seafood (boiled, grilled & fried), Steaks, Mexican and Italian - sometimes w/ the kids and most of the time without. Thanks in advance!

Returning to Key West after 40 years

Back then, we ate green turtle steaks and conk chower; of course it was good. Had a bar with a parrot walking up and down and around the drinks. Anyway, we're returning next month for a week and was hoping to get some info on where and what to eat, drink, etc.... Thanks in advance.

Best Of Pensacola Beach

Somebody please update the best food options in Pensacola Beach. With as many tourists that travel to the area, there must be a couple of foodies in the mix. Thanks.

An IRISH HOUSE visit is worth your while.

What a fantastic re-creation! Chef Matt Murphy has really established our city's first true Irish restaurant. His food menu is second to none and the beer selection is spot-on. I recently returned from a trip to Ireland and had such a great time, I was trying to extend my vacation at home, so we went to the Irish House for lunch on Friday, December 30th. What a great place! It was so good, that we made reservations for New Eve's Eve dinner and had another great evening with superior food, perfect drinks and live Irish music. The place was so much fun I thought I should let everyone know that this is one place not to miss, whether you're a local or a visitor when in New Orleans. Slainte!

Thanksgiving Dinner w/o the bird

Don't really want the traditional turkey fare for Thanksgiving while visiting NYC, so any ideas for a table for 5 would be appreciated.

Old, broken down, atmospheric, bayou restaurant?

Just 25 minutes from downtown you'll find Boutte's Restaurant in Lafitte; on the water, the boats pull up to their dock, always fresh seafood, cold beer. Need not look any further!
