Would never get captain platter again. Second visit. Wonderful location. Service good and got there early so no wait. Would have been unhappy to wait for such terrible seafood.

We really liked everything about the Surf Hut. Cool beach vibes, great service, friendly welcoming staff, food was delicious. I had the grilled Mahi sandwich with cucumber salad. My friend had a cup of gumbo which she slurped up, mmmm good. She also had fried...shrimp and enjoyed that too. The open-air windows facing the ocean was the highlight. We moved from our table to the bar where we hung out for another hour. Delightful way to spend the day.More

Stopped in for dinner after a recommendation from a local friend. We were sat immediately outside where the view was amazing and quickly ordered a couple drinks. We ordered mahi tacos and crab and shrimp dip. Both came out fairly quickly and both tasted really...good. Service was great we enjoyed our meal. The only reason I couldn’t give 5 stars was due to the prices. I understand with everything going on in the world today prices are higher but $7 for a bottle beer is a bit steep. We have been to numerous places right on the beach just like this one and never paid over $5 for a bottle of beer. Just saying.More

The food was terrible, the service was maybe ok. The cost of the terrible food was high. Definitely off the menu for our future trips.

We loved our lunch with a view at the Surf Hut! I had the fish tacos, which were delicious. My daughter had the ribs and chicken kabob, but preferred the chicken. The rest of our group enjoyed a grilled chicken sandwich. Beautiful views, great service...and yummy food!More

We arrived at the Surf Hut just before sunset. The hostess told us we had a 15 minute wait, so we headed out to the sand. We took a few pictures and noticed the text that our table was already ready. We sat outdoors watching...some little kids play in the sand and attempt cornhole. Great atmosphere! Kelly was our server. She was a friendly and down-to-earth person. My husband and I both ordered grilled Cobia with the mashed potatoes. I had the veggies (zucchini and squash) while my husband had the corn medley. Our food was delivered quickly and still hot. Everything was delicious! Our Cobia was tasted great, but was fantastic accompanied with the citrus beurre blanc sauce. Compliments to the chef here; our dinner was quite memorable! Best dinner of the vacation so far!More

Loud music was aggravating and annoying. Average beach bar grub. Shrimp tacos were the stand out. Good service. Nice place. Having an over strained sound system while eating, is like shooting yourself in the foot before running a marathon. There's too much competition nearby to...warrant a return.More

We went to dinner and enjoyed a table right next to the beach! Toad was an excellent server and made sure we were stocked with drinks, sauces, and extra napkins. He was prompt and helpful. The food was really good. We mostly had fried shrimp...and oysters. The prices have gone up since I was last here, but the location is fabulous.More

Overpriced and main dishes mediocre. If you eat there, go with appetizers only.. Service ok and wait staff pleasant.

I doubt it because it’s on the beach and dogs are not allowed on the beach. Perhaps if a service animal it could stay on the deck with you but not on sand. Check the Miramar beach city or Destin city webpage.
