Mitchell's Fish Market - Sandestin Ratings and Reviews
To start with, this place is a Landry's ...
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.
Best food and service in the area!

Food was excellent and the service was great. We will return next time we are in town.
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.

Used to be a good high end restaurant- now the waitstaff can't even tie or tighten their ties! The lack of attention to detail is obvious in the food and all aspects of this restaurants.

The resturant was fine, just nothing special, surely was not worth the price, for the amount of food that we got. The waiter was not great, and the shrimp and lobster was dry

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.

Fish was very over cooked , ambiance and service very good. Would expect a restaurant specializing in fish to know how to cook it properly.
Terrible service, good food.
We come here each year on annual girls' trip. We won't be returning. Service has gone downhill over the past few years. It took entirely too long to be greeted and get a drink order taken. Then we waited 10 minutes to get the drinks. Our salads took forever to come out and when they finally did, our entrees were delivered immediately after. Disappointed. Much better options in Destin.

Sadly, the best of food was sour dough bread. We had the bacon wrapped shrimp but they coated it with boring BBQ sauce which killed the flavor. We got the gumbo but it was very chili tasting instead of Cajun. The shrimp stuffed flounder was our entree was alright.

Food was very good. Our server, Cara, was very helpful. We had a few issues and had to request management and we found the General Manager to be less than helpful and lacking in the basics of customer service. Thank you Cara for your personal attention and knowing how to read your customer.
A total let down.....
After being seated, we waited over 15 minutes and our server never came to the table. After 18 minutes, I decided to go to the hostess stand and inform them that a server name came to our table. After 25 minutes a server finally showed up. He was very nice but we were already disturbed about the wait. My date ordered the ribeye to be prepared medium and it came out well done. After sending it back for the second time, it came out well with zero pink. My date decided to keep the ribeye even though it was still not cooked properly. I ordered the sea bass, which was cold. The price compared to product was no correlation. Overall, we were totally disappointed. We will never return. I pricey meal for below par food.
San Destin Wine Festival
Have eaten here before a couple of times and the food was great as well as the service. This time i had the twin lobster tails and they were like rubber from being over cooked, my wife had the snapper and it was over cooked.

Appetizers were wonderful- we had a few shrimp choices - the spicy shrimp and bacon wrapped. Unfortunately, our meal went downhill from there. Waiter, while pleasant, seemed rushed and we had to seek him out on multiple occasions to place cocktail orders. Our entrees arrived and one guest received his order completely wrong. The server realized it was wrong, announced it was wrong, and tried serving it anyway much to our chagrin. The grouper, which for this area is considered the fish to get because it's local and typically known for flavor and quality - was dry, flavorless and bland. Three of us ordered it blackened and it was flavorless. Had I not been famished I would have sent it back. Overall the experience was completely forgettable. We won't return.
You can always count on Mitchell's to be good. We went in with a group of 6 on a Saturday night and they could not have been nicer. The food and the service was good. They are a little pricey for what they offer.
Our family of five had a great lunch here. Excellent food and even better service. Thank you.
As always, the food and service was great. Love the location!
Went for a Thirsday night meal while in Sandestin on business and it was great. Ahi tuna appetizer was solid, spinach salad was too notch, and the Shanghai Sea Bass was very delicious and unique. Grayson was an excellent server who took great care of me. Will definitely return next time I am in town.
We have dined here before and been very happy. Not this time. One party had good food, the other maybe average. Service was subpar for a restaurant supposedly of this quality but we still tipped 20%. Why, because we are honorable people. A return, however, is unlikely.
Awesome Food, Disappointing Service
We've been making the hour-long drive to Mitchell's for special occasions ever since they opened in Sandestin; however, the service was so disappointing (again) this time, we've decided we must find a new "favorite" place. What's sad is the food is totally awesome, but the poor service negates the positive dining experience we expect from Mitchell's. Took over 15 minutes to get a bourbon & 7-up from the bar which we ordered as we were seated. Even though we weren't asked if we wanted dessert, we did ask for the carrot cake which has become our tradition. Twenty minutes! Yep, it took 20 minutes for the server to bring us our piece of cake! Just glad our reservations were fairly early (5:30) on a Monday evening; can't imagine had they been truly busy!
Good food, spectacular service
We've eaten at Mitchell's before and have never been disappointed. But our most recent visit was enhanced by our server. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable, and his recommendations of the freshly-caught cobia and pecan-crusted trout were on target. It's always more fun to dine at a place where your server seems to be truly into the food. Service was as speedy as one could expect -- not too fast-paced but not so slow that it left you begging for bread between courses. The cocktails are interesting, too. I fell in love with the grapefruit-basil concoction.
The atmosphere was nice, but the food was nothing better than what you would find at bonefish grill (even the special they had just started running). The service was professional and helpful, but it ultimately felt like a 10 dollar up charge on red lobster or bonefish for the same stuff.
Everything was just ok. For the price I'd expect professional wait staff and great food. Neither of these were bad, just not anything above what a chain restaurant might produce.

Food was okay, better than an average bar and grill but not the best I have ever had. Wine selection was ridiculously over priced! $120 for a bottle of cake bread?? Are you serious ? That is insane even if it was a 2012! I could buy the exact same bottle of wine at Travina across the street for $65.... Won't go back it was merely ok... Over priced in my opinion....
As Usual Very Good Meal
We visit the Destin area every year and Mitchell's is on the top of our list. We have dinner, and then one night we do the happy hour thing with appetizers and drinks outside. We are never disappointed.
