Ocean Club in Destin

I'll be in Destin next week, actually sandestin, (is there a difference?) Looking back at old threads, I've gotten what look to be some pretty good leads; I tend to be a "cheap eats" sort of person, my wife, not so much.

I do know we are eating at the Ocean Club one night, reservations were made for us by same person whose condo we're using....i tend to think of vacation as being a dress down time...khakis OK here? (or can I get out my Jams from 1986 and wear them?) And most importantly, can anyone give me a food forecast?

    I've been going to Destin for for 15 years or so, but I've never eaten at Ocean Club. Most places in Destin tend to be fairly casual, so off hand I imagine khakis are appropriate.

    You've probably heard most of this, but for I'd recommend: Captain Dave's, Seagars, Harbor Docks, Back Porch (for lunch, its not as good as once was, but its alright and a good time), Cafe 30-A (Seagrove), Old Florida Fish House (Seagrove), Red Bar (Grayton), Ruth Chris if you're looking for beef (Seagars has prime too).

    I'd avoid: Landry's and Crab Trap (some swear by it,but to me it gets worse and worse)
