Best Seafood Restaurant in Destin Award | SunQuest Cruises

Tripadvisor, the world’s largest travel site, has named SunQuest Cruises SOLARIS sunset cruises as one of the top seafood restaurants in Destin Florida for 2018. Released in September of 2018, TripAdvisor’s list of the top seafood restaurants in the Destin area highlight 20 of the area’s best seafood dining experiences.

SunQuest Cruises Executive Chef Josh and his culinary team use only the freshest local Gulf seafood for all SOLARIS Destin dinner cruises and all off-site catering that the company does. Him and his team transform the fresh seafood into art for the palette, giving guests a true taste of the Emerald Coast.

“Each morning, I get texts and emails from multiple seafood purveyors around the Destin area, and I select the freshest option of local, Gulf seafood for delivery the following day,” stated Chef Josh.

Fresh Gulf Seafood Menu on Destin Dinner Cruises

Guests on the SOLARIS dinner cruises are treated to a culinary adventure as they coast the local waters of Destin Florida. The locally-inspired menu is freshly prepared onboard by our chefs in the yacht’s galley. The three-course meal begins with a fresh salad and bread. Seafood entree choices include Seared Gulf Fish of the Day (lightly seasoned & complemented by White Wine Butter, herb-infused Potatoes) that can also be topped with a Shrimp Sautee.


A SOLARIS specialty and one of the most popular seafood dishes is the Gulf Shrimp & Grits, featuring Local, Organic Stone-ground Grits with a zesty Shrimp & Andouille Sauce & seasonal vegetables. Another popular seafood choice is the Southern Crab Cakes with all Sweet Lump Crabmeat with Chef’s Roasted Red Pepper Sauce, herb-infused Potatoes & seasonal Vegetables. Guests can also indulge in a prime Beef Filet Mignon, topped with their choice of Lump Crab Scampi or Shrimp Sautee.
