Whether arriving by land or sea, Harry T’s serves as a beacon of hope for hungry sailors and land lovers alike.
Harrison Baben, a circus trapeze artist, provided the inspiration for Harry T’s. To this day, the restaurant is decorated with the wonders and whimsy of the circus.
Located in Destin’s HarborWalk Village, Harry T’s is a two-story restaurant with an iconic lighthouse, so you can find Harry T’s in the most dense coastal fog. (Just kidding, it’s not functional.)
While you drink in a view of the harbor from Harry T’s outdoor deck, consider ordering a Bushwacker to cool you down on a warm day. This panhandle innovation is a local frozen favorite that features ice cream, Kahlua and dark rum. Sip with caution!
If rolling up your sleeves and biting into a sandwich is your specialty, locals recommend the Harry T’s poboys. Whether you pick mahi, flounder, or jumbo shrimp, the fresh Gulf ingredients and coleslaw fuse together for a perfect Emerald Coast bite.
Another favorite at Harry T’s is the steamer platters. Try the Harbor Steamer that features two snow crab clusters, one pound of fresh gulf shrimp, potatoes, corn and crusty French bread. Harry’s will also let you build your own steamer any way you want.
For the anglers in your group hauling in a fresh catch, Patti at HarborWalk Charters recommends taking your fish to Harry T’s to be cooked and prepared for dinner. This is a great option for our visitors who don’t have access to a grill. Talk to your charter captain about filleting your catch.
From 9 to 2 p.m. every weekend, Harry T’s has a brunch menu with bottomless champagne. Enjoy the breezy morning air while dining right on the water.
As an added bonus, Harry T’s is a dog-friendly establishment. So don’t hesitate to bring your four-legged friends along.
