When you think of eating seafood, you imagine the perfect setting being beachfront with ocean views for ages. Unfortunately, we often find ourselves closed up behind dark walls and letting our imaginations do the work on semi so-so popcorn shrimp bites. But not if you head to LuLu’s Destin! Not only is this restaurant one of my new favorites, it is also what I think to be the perfect seafood restaurant. Okay. I may be imposing my opinion on you just a little bit, but hey I’m trying to emphasize how awesome LuLu’s Destin is.
Open air with views of the ocean. Beach sand to go wiggle your toes in while your kiddos play on their little playground. Island drinks that will make your mouth water, and served in the cutest buckets. Not to mention the fresh seafood choices!
Now LuLu’s Destin has plenty of food choices for just about every tastebud in your group. We were lucky enough to try a couple of appetizers that I would definitely order again. Heck, my daughter would order the tuna dip we had as her main course! The fried green tomatoes held up to my Southern raised expectations of what those tart, juicy, absolutely delicious pieces of heaven are suppose to taste like. When it came time to order our main courses, we all ended up ordering different menu items at our table. I ordered the Fried Crab Claw Basket. That was A LOT of food! It had a heaping amount of crab claws and just as many french fries buried under the bottom of them. Once of my table mates ordered Shrimp and Grits. She’s Canadian and had never tried Shrimp and Grits before. I think she was happy. It sure did look good. We also had fish tacos and mahi mahi ordered at our table. I’m telling you, it all looked good. I love fish tacos, and I definitely will be visiting LuLu’s again to try theirs!
If you are wondering what you will find on the menu at LuLu’s Destin, well I’m sure you guessed seafood. They also offer a couple of Vegetarian options, a couple of options with ground beef, you’ll even encounter chicken, but you won’t find no steak on the menu! The kids menu is probably one of the most extensive I’ve seen in a while, offering several options for your little ones to enjoy. What makes LuLu’s stand apart from a whole slew of other seafood restaurants on the Emerald Coast is that they have an entire specialty menu for those with food sensitives. The special diet menu covers Gluten free, Soy free, Dairy free, Egg free, Shellfish free, and even Seafood free. You will not be disappointed in your options for food while dining at LuLu’s Destin.
LuLu’s Destin will definitely have you coming back for more. I know I will be returning!
