The fried pickles were good to start off. The grilled grouper with etouffee sauce on top with delicious! Highly recommend it. The mahi-mahi grilled fish was also very good. The sauce was spicy as described on the menu. Good service and a very casual atmosphere. Seating both inside or outside. Family friendly. Go early as it gets crowded later in... More

We stop in here every trip to destin. Love the fish tacos. Service is good with a "beachy" feel. Old style diner car that could use a little updating but overall not bad.

Had dinner tonight at Kenny D's and both the food and service was great. I ordered a dozen oysters and the gumbo and I've never seen such large oysters. The gumbo was some of the best I've had and I eat a lot of gumbo. Jen was our server and she did a fantastic job of getting our food ahead... More

Great atmosphere, good food, super location, and very reasonable prices make for an unbeatable lunch or dinner at Kenny D Cajun Restaurant. Walking distance from many condos, across the highway from the beach. Outdoor patio, friendly waitstaff.

At the end of a long travel day we needed to eat but didn't want to wait 2 hours for a beach dinner. We chose our old stand by Kenny D's. We ate indoors as it was cool and windy outside. Good variety of food as there were 4 of us, often with different tastes. Everything was really good, not... More

This is a neat, eclectic kind of place, absolutely nothing fancy. We chose the outdoor seating area as it was late and we wanted to enjoy the breeze. We ordered oysters on the half and they were good, plenty of spices and everything you need on the table. I got a cup of gumbo, I'm not a big gumbo lover... More
