Because I love oysters and gumbo I was excited to try Acme. Good- gumbo. Average- kids hot dog meal, red beans and rice. Below Average- the menus were dirty and sticky, the restroom wasn't well kept and led us through a messy second floor.

Acme knows how to make a chargrilled oyster, that is for certain. Pretty good drinks too, and great location in Baytown Wharf. This is my "must stop" whenever I'm in Destin.
