Pretty much what you'd expect at a restaurant right on the beach. Not fancy, not expensive. Good food. Great location.

I enjoy walking up to Whale's Tail for lunch when staying at Majestic Sun. It's a great place to sit and enjoy the beach views while eating lunch. They serve a good breakfast, but I would choose another place for dinner in Destin.

Right on the beach complete with gulls crying and looking for handouts. (Lots of "Don't Feed the Birds" signs...don't encourage them!) very tasty food served hot. The breaded items were lightly breaded which allowed the fish/shrimp/calimari to shine through. Liked that a lot! I had a pan fried grouper sandwich with lemon pepper and a side of coleslaw. Fish done... More

We just stopped on our way through for a quick drink. Cool patio bar downstairs, right on the beach, eating upstairs with patio and open view. Drinks are overpriced, but it's the beach. They have TV's at the bar for watching games, etc. Cool place to chill and if you're on the beach you can get cocktails.

so fun to see people gather and meet new friends and have drinks at the bar and pick nick tables. Elderly man asked me if I could help him figure out his tab. So, I asked him how much to tip? I own a restaurant and was curious what he would say. When he told me I said that's to... More

We ate dinner here for a post wedding vow renewal for a friend. Not sure if they were understaffed but husband and I ordered our fish/grouper dinner that looked like and tasted like tilapia. Very disappointed. It took a long time about an hour just to get our order. Prior we were downstairs to order drinks (wine and pina colada)... More

Couldn't beat the ocean view, but the food was average to below average. If you like grease, this is the place for you. Most was bland at best. We had the fish, shrimp and salad. Wouldn't go back.

The best this place has going for it is it's location..fronting the beach with a nice view. Thats where the good experience ends. Food ordered was under portioned and poorly presented. My shrimp tacos looked more like pancakes with lettuce. We also ordered a steak entree and was served plastic forks and knifes on paper plates. Could not cut the... More
