Destin Nightlife: 30 reviews and 14 photos

The Boathouse became famous for its Jimmy Buffet down on the waterfront atmosphere. Though it still holds true to its roots in a tiny little shack on the water with a guy and his guitar, its popularity is having a negative impact. These days it is still fun, but it's always packed making it almost impossible to get a drink day or night. My last visit, I waited for 20 minutes and even stood at the bar for 10 minutes trying to get a drink and failed, so I ended up leaving. They are also famous for oysters on the half shell. This spot is also popular in the early afternoon for alcoholic fishermen to cool their heels between drinking binges.

Directions: The Boathouse is in the Harbor Walk area near AJs.
