Should be fine.  I'd call for reservations though.  We always go in either April or October so it's not a problem for us but July is another deal. 

Okay thanks a LOT!

LOL!!  Bet they are!  :)  Just Deb and I because the boy and grandkids are knee deep in baseball season in Texas.  One of these days we'll work out a deal to take the grandkids but until then, just us and that's not a bad gig.

Congrats!  I think the boy's team came in 2nd or 3rd in the state but I understand he's been picked for a traveling team so it continues.  I know that can run into $$$ for mom and dad.   Certainly has changed since I was that age,  You guys have fun and if you have any questions on where to eat, holler.  We've been going every year since the mid 80's so we've been there a time or two.  I can even show you how to get to Jerry Jones little shack which is about a half a mile down the beach from where we stay.

I have another trick that I've been using for a couple of years. I will melt my butter into a small container and add just as much fresh squeezed lime juice to it as there is butter. I do add a little salt also. Brush it on after you've pulled back the husks. It's like a flavor burst in your mouth biting into good sweet corn and having that lime and salty flavor mix with it. Unless you don't like lime juice, humor me and try it just once.

Tried this today and it's a winner!  Think I got my corn wrapped a little better today (cut the end off)  and it cooked in about 30-35 minutes.  That stuff is hard to beat.  Hope the tomatoes were good.

I hope you liked it because that is one of our favorite places. The name sounds like a dive but it's pretty darn nice.  Haven't done the crawfish tamales but everything there is pretty top notch.  The grilled oysters we got there is what propelled us to start doing them ourselves.   I generally tear the oyster po'boy up and Deb goes the fried oyster plate route.    If you don't mind, let me know where you go next because we're always looking to try something new.    Have fun!  BTW, Shrimpers does a great job steaming shrimp you can take back to your condo if you like steamed shrimp.

Stinkys has shrunken their menu. They said they had a kitchen fire so now they are serving food next door in the bait shop. Was really good though. We are gonna hit that ocean club place one night. Not sure where else. We always do mcguires once for lunch cuz the kids love it.

They had a fire????  Hope that sucker is up and going by October!   One of our favorite places has always been Harbor Docks which is just caddy corner from Sexton's Seafood on 98. They do one helluva breakfast if you're a breakfast fan but we are not.  We always go for lunch and in addition to their regular menu, they'll always have 4-5 lunch specials but be prepared to drop $15-20 for the special but they are always good.  They have their own fleet that goes out and catches the fish they serve so it's top notch quality and taste wise.  They are also known for their Thai food and the spring rolls are great!  Dewey Destin's behind McGuires is very good. Been there for years.  Sit's down on the water, kind of a dive looking place but the food is very good.

One more place if you're a breakfast fan, the Donut Hole is a can't miss.  My mom and dad, all their friends and my sister and her bunch swear by it.  There is one downtown Destin and one on the way to 30A.  We're just not big breakfast eaters. We'll go with cheese and a type of salami and call that good.  Our main meal is lunch.

LL is very good but have not been in years.  They're dinner only and by that time we're generally in for the night.  The Vue was recommended to us last year and we tried it and were impressed.  If I'm not mistaken they have an early dining menu as well.  Great view, great service and great food.  What we eventually decided it was a wash with the Ocean Club and we can walk to Ocean Club.

Made this today.  Been wanting to try corn on the cob on the egg, Walmart had them on sale and that's all the encouragement I needed.  ;)  Soaked them for around 45 minutes then cooked them at 350 for around 50 minutes.  Did small lobsters and shrimp.  Ate well.
looks awesome

Baytowne is neat to see if nothing else. We walk over there 2-3 times while we're down there.  Kind of fun to walk around Jolie Island next to it.  There's Another Broken Egg place over there we  tried year before last.  Dropped $45 on a breakfast that was mediocre  at best.  They advertise Award Winning Bloody Mary's.  I asked the waitress how the made them and she told me it was Tabasco Bloody Mary mix.  Guess award winning can be most anything you give yourself an award for.
