We enjoyed our evening of great food, good service and delicious food. We both had Grouper but one had the Pontchartrain and the other had the Grouper Bayou with a fried soft shell crab on top. (A bit too much breading on the crab so that it was hard to taste the crab.) We visited here the week after Thanksgiving... More

Precariously hidden behind an apartment complex, Louisiana Lagniappe is a casual seafood spot, with fine dining charm and elegance. The soft shell crab were the best i've ever had.

We enjoyed the gumbo, colorful interior, and good service. Shrimp Po Boy was ample and fresh. The oyster chowder was heavy in cream and potaotes, light on oysters.

Wow! The filet was amazing! I like my steak well done which normally results in being more on the tough side. Not only was this well done but it was tender and not dry at all. They serve hush puppies to the table and they are great too. Service was outstanding!

After many years of dining at local seafood places, another couple we were traveling with suggested LA Lagniappe. What a great experience!! We were seated on the spotless porch (tribute to cleaning crew when an open porch on the water is spotless) and had a friendly and knowledgable server. The hushpuppies (aka "catheads" in the South) were outstanding and a... More

This restaurant had been suggested to us before we visited Destin, but we didn't make it here until our last night. The only thing I'm sorry about is that we didn't go there sooner, because we surely would have found the time to go back there again before our trip ended. The ambiance was perfect, the waiter (Bob) was very... More

We come here every year on our first night in Destin. The 2 for $49 with a bottle of wine dinner special is a great deal. Meal comes with house Italian salad, choice of two entrees, Cajun twice baked potato and a bottle of wine. Meal also comes with hush puppies which are wonderful. You can upgrade entrees for $5...

They don't take reservations, so you will have to wait, but it is worth it! One of the best meals I've ever had. We had a party of 6 and the service couldn't have been better. We sat outside & the view/setting is gorgeous too. They brag about their hushpuppies and they are really pretty plain, but who cares....everything else... More

My husband and I enjoyed the 2 can dine deal a lot. It was a great value for the delicious food and wine! We also ordered the chocolate peanut butter pie which was phenomenal.

I had gumbo dish that was served over rice. I normally do not like spicy dishes, but this one was just right. It went very well with the Abita draft beer.

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.
