Friends and guests often ask for a recommendation on a good place to treat yourself with a cocktail and steak dinner in Destin. Seagar’s in Sandestin is our go-to restaurant for a true fine dining experience. It’s the area’s only AAA Four Diamond steakhouse, and it lives up to the standard of being a “culinary experience to savor and enjoy”.
Whether celebrating a special birthday, anniversary, new job, or just needing a romantic evening, Seagar’s is just the spot. On our latest visit, the hubby and I began the evening with a cocktail in the bar; a dirty vodka martini with blue cheese-stuffed olives for him and a Seagar’s Lemondrop rimmed with sugar for me. Live piano music, elegant table settings, rich wood finishes and a fireplace create an intimate space. It was so enjoyable, we actually decided to stay in there and dine at the bar rather than the dining room.
As we moved from our cozy bar table, a friendly bartender welcomed us to the bar. He was attentive and happily recommended a nice Pinot Noir from their extensive wine list. Resisting one of the numerous appetizers, we split the Seagar’s Wedge salad with Blue Cheese. Lettuce was fresh and crisp and garnished with roasted tomatoes. For entrees, I had a mouth-watering petite fillet perfectly cooked to medium rare. Tom’s fillet oscar was prepared medium rare and we shared grilled asparagus.
Several dessert items caught our eye, including Bananas Foster, which is prepared tableside and served over ice cream. However, in the end, we decided we would have to plan ahead next time in order to leave room for dessert.
For those who prefer surf over turf, Seagar’s offers a large selection of gulf fresh seafood as well as several lobster and crab options. Another nice touch is that the menu varies by season, as different fresh fish, vegetables and fruit become available. Several items are gluten-free as well.
It’s always entertaining to observe the staff bringing out other selections while waiting for food to arrive. Seagar’s takes presentation seriously, and the chefs make some beautiful creations. This time, we happened to see Steak Diane prepared tableside.
I could go on and on, but I better go…need to book a flight for my next visit!
Seagar’s is located in the lower lobby of the Hilton SanDestin Beach Resort and Spa.
