Located in Destin, Florida on Highway 98, The Whale's Tail is one of the favorites of the local residents. It's part of the Seascape Resort and provides more than just good food. The location offers the opportunity for a romantic stroll along the beach and plenty of scenery. Whether you're out on a date or just looking to spend a little time with the family, this is a local eatery with a great menu.

It opened nearly 30 years ago and has become one of the more iconic restaurants on the beach. The Whale's Tail has survived many hurricanes, but after a devastating fire, it was forced to go through a significant renovation in 2009. This allowed the owners to change it just a little bit, but it's still the iconic restaurant it's always been.

You can sit inside the restaurant or enjoy the weather out on the deck. The deck overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and provides a great atmosphere for a date or an evening out with the family. They always have fresh fish and plenty of Grouper when it's in season. You should know, however, visiting the restaurant during peak season could make it difficult to get a table because it's always packed. Make sure you arrive early or show up a little after the normal dinner rush.

This casual atmosphere provides a true slice of Florida living with the ocean breeze, great drinks and amazing good. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with plenty of local fish choices and many other options. They always feature seasonal dishes, especially fish and the prices are very affordable. If you're looking for somewhere a little more unique than just the typical chain restaurant, stop in and find out what The Whale's Tail is all about.
