We had a large party of 16 including 3 kids. Mitchell's was the only place that would accommodate a reservation for the size through Open Table. Having had our wedding reception at Mitchell's we knew the food and service was exceptional. 6 years later we had the same quality of food and service.

We enjoyed a wonderful family dinner at Mitchell's! We vacation in Destin every summer, and it's our favorite place to go for dinner. We had a group of 9 and made a reservation. When we arrived they had a private room ready for us. Our server Hunter was very friendly and knowledgeable. The food is outstanding! We had everything from salmon, calamari, stuffed shrimp, crab cakes, and more at our table and everything was delicious! They have a good selection for children also that is just as delicious! Already can't wait to go back next summer!

great meal! the Seanad was awesome ! The lobster Mac and cheese was just as awesome ! The White Moscato drink was excellent! The pineapple Mojito was terrific! Meal was slightly pricy but so worth it! We sat outside and it was a perfect evening! We will absolutely go back next time we are in town!

This was the worst dining experience on our vacation. We had reservations, however it was a 2+ hour process. The restaurant was so cold the server gave us 15 foot table clothes to use as blankets after repeated requests to turn up the air conditioning. The food ordered, was not the food we received. Mistakes were made to everyones' dish. The bill was ridiculously over priced for mediocre, incorrect food and horrible service. There were 2 tables of customers that arrived, were seated, ordered, ate and left before we received our food. If you have a choice between starving and going to this restaurant, I suggest starvation. It will be quicker, warmer and less expensive.

We had a late reservation and our waiter wasn't the fastest with the drinks or service but we enjoyed the tuna app, the salads and the Chilean sea bass was delicious. We all had something different and food was consistently good. The place had a faint smell of fish which was a little disturbing but I had to think it was a fish restaurant and when I cook at home my garbage can stinks from the skins of fish. I would give it another go just because the food was good. The place is huge so plenty of room for large parties and the area it is in is amazing for families. Nice shopping area as well.

We were pleased to be able to get a reservation in the busy season at the beach. We thought the servers did an exceptional job of taking care of our large party. The food and drink were all served promptly in spite of how busy it was. We had a little problem with the filet minon but the manager made it right for us and we moved on. Overall, I think it was a very satisfying experience and we were all very pleased when we left.

We had reservations, so we were seated within 10min of arriving, which gave us an opportunity to try he pineapple martini at the bar. It was delicious and the bartender was great! After being seated and greeted by our server, Diane, we ordered the calamari (mediocre), the raw oysters (amazing), the lobster bisque (too salty) and the clam chowder (perfect). For dinner, we had the Asian-style sea bass (delicious!), the Oscar-style sea bass (also delicious!), the chicken parm (spot on) and the filet with lobster mac & cheese (both were amazing!) Diane was great, very friendly and bubbly, but the food service was extremely slow.
Overall, the food was good, the atmosphere wasn't anything special, the service was good, but slow. We probably would eat here again.

Our reservations had us seated right away. When we left there was a line of people waiting for a table. Overall our experience was kid friendly, meaning, we heard other children and our children were allowed to enjoy themselves too. This is a good middle level restaurant to introduce children to finer dining. I was surprised that the food did take a while. I watched as the couple next to us, who was seated after us, was served and serviced quicker than us. Their order was taken around the same time as ours, but they did get their appetizers and main course before us. We were a party of 4 while they were a party of 2. Not sure if that made a difference. Our server did say it was going to take 30 minutes for our entrée, which is a long time on a holiday weekend in a restaurant that was packed. I wonder how long those who came after us had to wait. Not sure if 30 minutes was the typical turn-around time for food, if so, so be warned here. Overall food was fine. Shrimp scampi uses tobacco crème, but wasn't spicy. Kids chicken fingers were ok, not very thick and a little dry. Fish and chips were good. Gumbo and New Englad clam chowder were good. Cobia was a little fishy and a few bones as a filet. Rice or Risotto was a little hard. If it was risotto that's how I prefer it, but if it was rice, then it could use more water and cooking time. I would try again during a quieter weekend though.

Food was aweful. 9PM on a holiday weekend & fish was clearly frozen. Low quality presentations & nothing special at all---and we are not food snobs at all. But this was not nearly worth the $80 something it cost. Def regret this choice.

We had four grandchildren under 11 and two adults; summer beach trip; great service, and really good food with nice presentations. Baked oysters were outstanding. Our server was extremely accommodating and kind to our grandchildren. Would recommend for most occasions. Happy hour at bar looked noisy and fun.

To start with, this place is a Landry's disguised with an alias. Because who would voluntarily go to a Landry's at the Gulf Coast? We really should have left as soon as we went inside and were seated, despite the place being mostly empty, at a tiny two seater booth directly across from the big metal swinging kitchen doors. The dining room was gloomy and had the fusty nautical appearance of the Krusty Krab from SpongeBob's Bikini Bottom, but without the fun. It also had a peculiar smell. But we were tired and hungry and decided to persevere. The service was slow as Christmas but, again, without the fun. There was one interesting bottle of wine on the menu, but they didn't actually have it. The bread was a loaf of that institutional hard tack you might expect at a Landry's. The house salad was a sad little plate of chopped iceberg, with a few carrot strips, a tiny number of pine nuts and a few pieces of chopped date. The bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp were not terrible, though the sauce was a bit sweet. But still, bacon. After the starters, we waited an unreasonably long time before inquiring about our entrees, which our waiter seemed surprised to learn we had already ordered. I had a bowl of gumbo, which was okay. My husband had crab cakes which, admittedly, were pretty good. At that point, "pretty good" was high praise.

Mitchell's came highly recommended and chose this location for a special Fathers Day celebration (party of 4). The service left much to be desired from the moment we did not order alcoholic beverages and the server rolled his eyes. Not attentive nor interested in whether or not the food was pleading to us or if we desired drink refills. Don't believe there was a language or cultural barrier, simply inconsiderate behavior and lack of manners by a server. Unfortunate as we have heard so many rave reviews by other locals in the area.
That being said the food was flavorful from the lobster bisque, cedar plank salmon, lump crab cakes, bacon wrapped shrimp, etc.... There wasn't a bite taken that didn't pack a flavorful punch.
Eat here with the knowledge that the hospitality may be lacking from the hostess to the servers. $136+tip for lunch that did not include dessert or alcohol was a bit much for the menu items available for a Fathers Day outing. My 2 cents.

Excellent meal!!When visiting Sandestin we always eat here at least 2 or 3 times! Fresh seafood presented in a very appetizing way! The Lobster Bisque is a must try! It is so rich and creamy! The salads could have just a bit more of stated ingredients, goat cheese, dates, candied pecans and pinenuts. The spinach salad was supposed to have candied pecans but I had to hunt for them and I only found 2. It was a very large salad and the goat cheese was sparse. The house salad was supposed to have dates but they were also hard to find! We told the waiter and he promptly brought goat cheese, pecans, pinenuts and dates! The salads were very good!

We've been going to Mitchell's for years and have always loved it. The selection of fish this time was far less than usual. My meal was overcooked. I have celiac disease and, although I specified that I needed gluten free, I had a reaction. It was a disappointing meal. I think we'll try somewhere else next time.
Very poor service. Had to ask for water after waiting 10 minutes, then only 1 was delivered for 3 people. Salad arrived, waited another 5 minutes to catch another server to requests silverware. Waiter did not check back after delivering food nor offered to re-fill wine glasses. Wasn't a busy night. Staff overall appeared unhappy to be there in general.

We sat outside because we had 2 small children with us. The service was excellent. My kids loved the children's chicken tenders and grilled salmon. My husband had the crab cakes and I had the cobia grilled on a cedar plank. It was all delicious!! Great drink menu as well.

We were seated right at the entrance, and 3 of the servers gathered at the bar area and were telling jokes and laughing loudly which disturbed our meal. Both my husband and I ordered dishes with shrimp, and both were way over-cooked and rubbery. Our server was not very attentive. We paid good money for bad seafood. We were very disappointed in this visit and will not be returning.

We were not that impressed with the food at Mitchell's. Having dined at other Landry restaurants, we expected a little higher quality. My husband had the gumbo which was very good. His salad came out with his entree instead of before. He had a grouper and I had the lobster & shrimp stuffed halibut. Both entrées were just so-so. I expected mine to be more decadent than it was. It was a bit dry and I didn't really taste the sauce or the lobster. My husband had "the shark" ice cream dessert. He really enjoyed it. I probably would not return to this restaurant.
