A celebration of dining

Published: Friday, October 26, 2012 at 05:03 PM.

Destin and South Walton are blessed with plenty of unique restaurants. With all the options available to locals and visitors, The Log and The Sun has asked some of our restaurant partners what sets them apart and makes their cuisine supreme.•••

Ruth’s Chris Steak House
15000 Emerald Coast Parkway, Destin

“Ruth's Chris specializes in the finest custom-aged Midwestern beef. We broil it exactly the way you like it at 1800 degrees to lock in the corn-fed flavor. Then we serve your steak sizzling on a 500 degree plate so that it stays hot throughout your meal. In addition, the service you'll receive is executed with true southern hospitality and we have live music by a Billboard charting recording artist five nights a week, Tuesday through Saturday.” — Michael J Thomas, Ruth’s Chris entertainer/sales and marketing director


Jim ‘N Nick’s
14073 Emerald Coast Parkway, Destin

Jim ‘N Nick’s has a deep respect for Southern culture — a respect we honor by doing things with a passion for details, honest effort and a refusal to take shortcuts. Our way is low and slow — our pork shoulders steep in hickory smoke for over 14 hours. There are no freezers in a Jim ‘N Nick’s — everything is made from scratch, from the croutons that top our salads to the flour and rolling pin fresh pie crust. Jim ‘N Nick’s can fill every need — from dining-in to taking-out, tailgate parties to full-service catering events, we can create an experience and price to match any appetite.” — local owner Dave Hudson
