If you're looking for top notch pizza from a local establishment then you've come to the right place. Merlin's serves some of the best pizza in town. I highly recommend the bbq chicken and the combo supreme.

This is a great thin crust pizza. It was voted the BEST in 2018 in the Destin Area. They have a small, informal eating area. They have small TVs at some of the tables.

Great pizza. My husband who is not a pizza fan loved it as did my granddaughters. The staff was friendly and my pizza was ready when I went to pick it up.
