My wife and I visited this restaurant on April 24th and we both ordered the fish special dinners. She had the Cobia and I had the trigger fish with crab. Both dishes were expertly cooked and very tasty. The hush puppies served as an appetizer were the best we had ever eaten. The service was very attentive and the view... More

We always make this out go to place when in Destin. You will fall in love with their fresh food. We celebrated our 23rd Anniversary with friends for dinner here. Although they are known for their seafood, I bucked the trend and ordered the Ribeye (14oz), med-rare..........my bride order the Pecan Grouper and we shared the surf and turf combo.... More

A little bit of Cajun influence at what could be the clubhouse at your yacht club. It's so much more and is an institution on Gulf Shore Drive. The "special" of fish in paper is a holdover for years. I got a nightly special of cobia. Good salad and small sweet hush puppies as your bread. Different view of the... More

We had visited this restaurant a few years ago and were impressed by the food & atmosphere. While driving through Destin, my wife kept looking for someplace to eat when she spotted the sign. We were picking up her sister @ the airport so we decided to eat there and see if it had changed any. It was a good... More

I tried 3 places during my visit. i came back here twice. lobster, steak, desert, crab cakes all wonderful. gumbo was just so so. service great. would recommend patio during sunset. If I only had time for one place to dine during my visit, it would be between boshamps or here. little more elegant here but both places are great.

We ate here for dinner on a girls' beach trip. Early beach season so crowd was not a problem. We chose to eat on the deck. My only complaint was the sun was so bright as it was going down & was very uncomfortable. I feel sure we could have changed tables if we had asked but didn't want to.... More

Been here over the years and prefer the bar over dining room when there is less than 4 folks. This visit, we had a very rude bartender who wanted to take our order before she offered a menu. They weren't busy but she acted like we were a bother. Hush puppies are always the best ever and the food is... More

In 1984, Louisiana Lagniappe was opened and established inside Sandpiper Cove condominiums in what was at one time the Sandpiper Cove Yacht Club. A loyal following was quickly established due, in no small part, to the quality of the food and the attention to detail of the service. In 1998 The Southern Restaurant Group took ownership of the restaurant with a commitment to maintain the same level of food quality and service. Since then, Louisiana Lagniappe has consistently served only the freshest seafood and steaks. Now open year round, Louisiana Lagniappe is the spot for a memorable dining experience on all levels. In 1999, a second Louisiana Lagniappe was opened in the San Roc Cay Shopping and Marina Complex in Orange Beach, Alabama. Offering the same fine Louisiana seafood with a Creole flair, the attire is casual, yet an upscale waterfront dining experience is provided for the entire family.
