Thanksgiving in Destin/Ft. Walton, FL

  • c

I was just introduced to this board...and I can see myself spending alot of time here! Hello, "ya'll" :)

My husband and I are going to spend this Thanksgiving in a beach condo on Okaloosa Island (between Ft.Walton and Destin) - just the two of us. We haven't been there in many years (20?) - we would love any suggestions of restaurants that would be open for Thanksgiving Dinner (brunch?).

We're trying to decide whether to cook for the two of us in the condo...or enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner out. (Hate to not have those leftovers!)

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. I don't know if they are open, but give them a call: Cuvee Beach Restaurant and Wine Bar, 36120 Emerald Coast Highway, Destin, FL (850)-650-8900.

    I ate there in October, and the food is out of this world and was reasonably priced.

    1. My husband and I will be having Thanksgiving in Destin as well. The Holiday Inn is having a buffet from 11-2, I hear its wonderful.

      1. re: Le'

        Do not go to the Holiday Inn. I had the Thanksgiving Buffet a couple of years ago. What a let down. It was expensive and everything was thrown togeather and tasted like it came from a can.

      2. My husband and I are also coming down to Destin for Thanksgiving. Sandestin Beach & Golf Resort is offering a Thankgiving Brunch (Sun Set Bay Cafe) for around $25 and the Hilton Sandestin is having a Thanksgiving/Seafood Buffet for $30. I have also received info on the Ocean Club's Thanksging Buffet for $21.95 $Harry T's for 21.95. The Grille at Silver Shells Condominums also has a turkey dinner for around $22. Harbor Docks at the Marina was also mentioned. Good Luck & Happy Thanksgiving.
