I received an email from Louisiana Lagniappe describing their week-end specials. Included was Crawfish Bisque. I was reminded of the first crawfish bisque I ever ate. It was at Airline Motors Cafe in LaPlace. It was so wonderful, we returned several times to re-enjoy it. That was some time ago--before I10 was completed to New Orleans. I had no choice... More

This place has been a family favorite for years. We were so pleased to find that it is still as good as we remember. We drove 30 minutes from Seaside to Destin to eat dinner here and were so pleased we did! They do not take reservations and are usually very busy. They open at 5 so go early to... More

Wow, what a place!! Hard to find. It is located inside a gated community, but it was worth the find. Best crab cakes I have had. Also great crab and corn bisque. My son thought the hush puppies were the best he has had. Very accommodating staff.

We have been visiting Louisiana Lagniappe for several years each time we visit Destin. This past week we paid another visit and found the food to be as good or better than ever. I had tenderloin medallions smothered in a crab/hollandaise sauce that were excellent. My wife had the special for the evening, and she, too, was very pleased. The... More

The dining room was large and attractive, with white table cloths. We were seated at a table overlooking the water. They feature hush puppies, and every table gets some, just as you would bread in other restaurants. They were featuring a special crawfish menu, and I had the bisque, which was excellent. The house salad salad my companion had was... More

We finally tried Louisiana Lagniappe and so happy we did!! In Jan-Feb they have the 2 can dine for $49 with wine. One of their choices is their grouper with a brown butter sauce, you can also have it topped with pecan or almonds. Have never had grouper that tasted sooo good. Returned a few days later before the 2... More

The Lagniappe is a restaurant that we always go to when in Destin. This night the 4 couples we were with enjoyed the 2 dine for $49. It was a wonderful meal & we will always be back.

I can't believe how many good reviews there are on this restaurant. I was warned to not eat here but I went based on reviews. The worst grouper we've ever had in Florida. It was so thin & as tough as nails. The server knew it & their solution was to bring melted butter to through over it. Adding sauces... More

We ate here three times in two weeks, and if we ever return to Destin we will certainly dine here again. We tried the various grouper entrees that went with the "Two Can Dine for $49". My favorite was the grouper almondine, my husband liked the grouper ala Kevin (?) best - had a very flavorful mushroom sauce. He also... 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.
