All was good until the time between when we finished our appetizers and the entrees came. That was over thirty minutes and closer to forty. Someone choked and lost track of us, more concerned about the table of seven near us. Even after I complained to TWO different servers at the thirty minute mark, no apologies, no sorry, and another ten minutes went by before the food came. And no offer to take this or that off the check or free dessert. Needless to say, you lose your dining momentum and joy when there is that kind of lapse and failure. They blew it on how long it took between courses AND not admitting the failure and making up for it. Hence the 12% tip.
Awesome Food! Awesome service! Will be back soon!
Special accommodations were made & appreciated.
The restaurant is beautiful, the food is amazing and the service superb!
Outstanding food. Bob, the Maitre d/sommelier, manager - keeps everything running smoothly.
He is on top of everything and is gifted at handling special occasions.
Excellent food. Enjoyable interaction with staff who are knowledgable about the food and preparation. Pricey. Nice for a special occasion.
Great food and atmosphere. The best fine dinning in all of Destin.
Ambiance, food , service, wine selections the absolute BEST.
My wife and I dined at Seagar's this past Saturday March 10th to celebrate our 34th Wedding Anniversary. We made reservations a couple of weeks in advance, with a couple of special requests. We were greeted with huge friendly smiles and treated like rock stars. Bob was kind enough to provide us a private dining room. One of our special requests was a personalized menu. We collect menus from various special occasions such as Anniversaries and Birthdays, have the event printed on the menu ("Happy 34th Anniversary Becky & David"), have the Chef sign it, and we have them framed. We have several decorating the walls of our kitchen, dining areas, and hallways. Seeing the menus from all over the world refreshes some great memories.
Point is, Seagar's had our menu ready and waiting for us, along with the flowers delivered the previous day on our table. We were highly impressed with the quality of the wait staff, their menu knowledge, and professional service. And the food quality....oh my, where should I begin. Just outstanding!!! This is a must visit restaurant for those who are looking for a memorable meal. Between the private room, the menu, the flowers and the rock-star service, my "husband brownie points" are met for at least for a couple of weeks....maybe. :>))
service was abysmal in a way I cannot describe. our server refused to pay us any mind at all, and when forced to (when I flagged down several different members of the service staff) he was terse, curt, uninterested, and not knowledgeable about anything I asked for. he never asked for our drink orders, never checked again, never informed us about desserts, never asked about the quality of the food, never inquired about dessert orders or dessert drinks, and, again, it took an embarrassing about of rubbernecking to even get the attention of the allegedly dedicated "captain." we have eaten here for years and years, and we shouldn't have to beg for service. (to be fair: the server seemed new and anxious, but it remains inexcusable, at this level.)
Well done. They graciously replaced a bottle of wine that
didn’t measure up to expectations. Food was excellent.
My wife and I look forward to dining here once a year when we are in town. If this was our first time visit, we would probably not be back.
It looked like they had 3 or 4 large groups and this greatly impacted the service and experience. The captain was not attentive, only spoke with him when he told us about the special and to bring the check.
Our normal captain, Scott, was unavailable due to the large groups and the experience suffered because of it. We always have a wonderful experience when Scott is in charge.
It got to the point of waiting for our dinner, that I was close to asking if it wasn’t prepared, to cancel and would have left. The server came by and said we were next up, so we waited.
The food was awesome as it normally is. No complaints there.
Nice environment, well dressed and effective staff. Provided focused support for the dining experience without being pushy or overly intrusive. Loud piano music.
Food presentation was timely and pleasant with appropriate portions. All the dishes were pleasant and tasteful but slightly underwhelming versus price. All in all, if entertaining/ trying to impress, this is a good option.
This is one of our absolute favorite restaurants! We ordered the crab cake and pork belly for appetizers, the 2 3/4 pound Maine Lobster and Prime Rib for our entrees, mashed potatoes, Mac n cheese, and truffle fries for sides, and the chocolate sufflee for dessert. Everything was outstanding! This restaurant is a fine dining restaurant and with that comes a pretty price tag but it is well worth every penny! We return every year on Valentine’s Day!
It was a very memorable experience by both my wife and I. Unique in many ways and a very impressive encounter.
We have dined there many times and always have good food and service. It varies by visit and who the Waite staff is but more good than bad.
New York strip this visit had a lot of gristle in it but the flavor was good.
Lobster tail was small for the price but favor and texture were good.
Good was use 4 times in this review and no excellent thus the 4 out of 5 review.
Everything was perfect, Paul was fantastic. ...again! We have him every year. But if I was going to mention something, the amount of casual dress for such a great place was subpar. I always wear a shirt and tie. Unfortunately, there was very little of that, this time. Made it seem "not as high class" as in the past, though everything else was perfect. I'm not wealthy, but I still went out and bought a nice shirt and a tie for $150 (didn't realize what I'd done walking into Brooks Brothers), but nevertheless, I got it done. Others should do the same. Had a great time though. A $300 meal warrants a dress code though. Just a thought.
Have been going to Seagar's for 15 years and have never been disappointed. Menu is extensive and portions large. The entire wait staff is outstanding. Men are expected to wear coats.
We were having a friends' get-together for a group of ten. Bob at Seegars arranged a lovely table for ten. The food, ambiance, and service, were impeccable.
Seagars didn't fail to impress. Wonderful ambiance. Impeccable service and of course the food was outstanding.
Anniversary dinner; seated in private room with attentive staff.
Wonderful birthday experience!
Zane was our waiter and he coughed into his sleeve a dozen times tonight. He sneezed another half dozen times that we observed. It’s flu season and obviously this guy was ill. Shame on them for exposing everyone in the dining room. Food was mediocre at best. Very disappointing for a place that we have always loved.
Wonderful, We got married Last weekend and enjoyed dining with you, we will return every anniversary.
Feels more corporate after years of individualized attention and service.
Amazing ! Joe was excellent as well as everything we tried on the menu !
Excellent food, service and a great wine list. Can’t wait to go back.
This was the best dining experience I have had in the United States.
Perfection at every step !!!
The best meal we have ever had. The special treatment of everyone at the table, including our 11 year old grandson was so kind. The Fois Gras was melt in your mouth delicious, the 10 oz. Steak was cooked perfectly. My 15 year old daughter and I shared it and our waiter cut it beautifully for us and served our plates to us, both plates were decorated. Creamed spinach, twice baked potatoes, and macaroni and cheese were all served family style and could feed 3-4 people. All seasoned to perfection. The lemon drop martini was the most perfect I have ever had...perfect balance of sweet & tart. The show was on when our waiter made flaming Bananas Foster! It was as beautiful as it was delicious! The chef treated my husband with a Chocolate Souffle that I will remember for weeks to come. It was the moistest chocolatiest heaven in a bowl I have ever tasted. We ordered an additional one, and 6 people shared 2 soufflé s. We cannot wait for the next special occasion to be in San Destin and go back.
Always a very special place. Incredible food and ambiance. This has always been a very special restaurant dining experience for us. Food is cooked to perfection and service is overwhelming. We never care about the price because everything here is just over the top.
A wonderful dinner, but is definitely on the pricey side. Chef Laurie is great! She stopped by our table and talked for a while. She even gave us a taster of their infamous gnocchi, which we enjoyed tremendously! A great place to celebrate a special occasion!
I've eaten at Seagars a couple of times for business, but my wife had never been. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and didn't have a lot of spare time to go very far away for this very special occasion. I wanted to treat her to something very elegant and not the usual local evening dining flare.
Being in a popular vacation area, which we love, usual means dressing up for dinner is a clean swimsuit and a shirt with sleeves. Sometimes that can even be a wardrobe stretch. Seagars allows for business casual to formal dining wear without a cousin Eddie parading through.
The lite warm atmosphere with holiday music being played in the background from the bar piano, just added to the perfect surroundings for Seagars fantastic service and perfectly prepared food!
So for all the locals, don't forget this classy community hide-a-way and for any visitors reading this before heading this way. Pack a nice dress ladies and slack with a collared shirt for you guys. Treat yourself to something other than fried, frozen fish and shrimp. See how elegance is done right here in the south! Gary
A must try restaurant that we have been wanting to try for a long time. Made reservations for husband's 50th birthday and was not disappointed. The ribeye was cooked perfectly and the side portions were very generous (enough to share!) It was louder than expected with the pianist playing but the only it was an issue was when the softer spoken captain was talking, we had to strain to here him. The atmosphere was festive and cheerful! Our waiter was excellent, couldn't have asked for a better one. He even remembered my reservation saying it was a special occasion and brought out a chocolate souffle that was out of this world. Overall, although pricey, we will definitely be back to celebrate future occasions!
Oh yeah, order the chocolate martinis, best I have ever had!
Our absolute favorite!!! Fantastic every time!!!!
Excellent service and the food is amazing! Don’t say no to the chocolate soufflé!! It’s a must ❤️
We always eat at Seagars when we are in Destin. This is one of the best restaurants we have been to. The service is always excellent. The staff makes you feel special. The food is always delicious. We have never had a bad experience. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
