When relaxing on the Emerald Coast, you probably expect to find some of the best seafood in the Gulf of Mexico. Fort Walton Beach has some of the best seafood restaurants in all of Florida, including the ever-popular Brotula’s Seafood House and Steamer. This Florida favorite is locally owned and operated in a casual and friendly family atmosphere just off the Destin Harbor. Not only does Brotula’s specialize in fresh and locally caught seafood but also boiled and steamed shellfish platters. No matter what you order at Brotula’s Seafood House and Steamer, you will find an incredible meal awaiting you.
Perfect Starters and Meals
Every meal is made right with the perfect starter to enjoy. You can choose from classic favorites such as fried pickles, tuna dip, calamari, and more. Tasty soups and salads such as the Seafood Gumbo and Wedge Salad are a great addition to any deal. The entrée selection is where everything gets even tastier. We recommend the seafood by the pound, available steamed or boiled and served with corn and potatoes. Choose form Alaskan snow crab, king crab, blue mussels, lobster tail, and royal red shrimp. Brotula’s even offers a variety of oysters available by the dozen and half dozen. Enjoy your oysters with bacon jam, bourbon cream, garlic parmesan butter, cocktail sauce, and parmesan cheese. You have not truly enjoyed oysters until you have paired them with these delicious sauces. Non-seafood lovers can enjoy hamburgers, patty melts, and tacos.
