“OK food. OK Service. No view.”
Review of 10 on the Harbor

We have eaten here 3 times. Each time it is OK but nothing special. The view is not good unless you are sitting outside. The food is OK but nothing special. The wait staff seems more interested in talking to each other than helping customers. The atmosphere on the harbor is awesome, but if you want good Italian food, go somewhere else.

We had reservations with a view. That meant outside and it was raining. No worries they moved us inside, but all tables at the windows were reserved. OBTW some of those reservations were just showing up as we left. We did get a table back from the window but up a level - so all good. Food was creative and tasty. We stuck to seafood - which was a good choice as we heard several menu choices were not available - and this was 615pm. There seemed to be only one waiter for 6 tables but only 3 were occupied at any point in time.

But the food was tasty. :) the chicken lollipops were sweet and tangy and tender. The scallops and shrimp were only outdone by the grilled grouper.

Sadly we were told at the end of dinner the place was closing as a restaurant the next day to focus on a banquet hall where the margins were higher. That explained a lot.

We had blue crab claws in a Cajun sauce, fantastic. Entree was shrimp and pasta, delicious and a grilled fresh snapper with spinach and 3 fried oysters on top,awesome. Very generous portions. Plus it is a gorgeous restaurant overlooking Destin harbor.

Well - where to start - 1st DO NOT try to go from San Destin to the Harbor on Thursday night!! It took 1.5 hours to get there (left at 6:00 for 7:00 reservation) - then there was NO PARKING - had to valet park across the street at McGuire's. Luckily they were not booked-up - so, they held our 7:00 reservation until 8:30. But once our order was put in it took 30 mins to get the appetizers and 45 mins to get the main course - so our planned 7:00 food was there at just after 9:00 - not all the 10's fault though, but, they were understaffed to serve about 2/3rds of the tables. If you stay anywhere CLOSE - GO - it is the BEST FOOD EVER!!

Good bits:
Chowder to start was good
The view is fantastic, especially to watch the fireworks on a Thursday
The burger was tasty and good value

Bad bits:
The seafood mains were smothered in bland sauces, particularly the prawns - this killed the meal for most of us as it drowned out the rest of the dish
Slow service
