Where to Watch Football in Destin & South Walton

We know the beautiful fall weather and gorgeous sugar white sand beaches can’t keep the die-hard football fan from their college or pro game!  The Emerald Coast is a melting pot of football fans, so no matter who you’re pulling for, there’s usually a restaurant or bar that is carrying your team’s game. 
Here’s a list of some of our favorites: 
If you’re near Destin Harbor at game time, check out Boshamps Seafood and Oyster House.  Located at 414 Harbor Boulevard, Boshamps features football action on the super big screen overlooking the Destin Harbor.  In addition, you’ll find TV’s all over the sprawling restaurant, bar, and outdoor deck areas.   
For a smaller, more intimate spot, consider The Other End,a new beer garden that overlooks the harbor. With only one television, we recommend you call first to see which team they are airing, but the outdoor garden setting and great craft beer selection (16 on tap plus bottled beers) have us loving this new hot spot! Craft beers are complemented by beer garden specialties, including hamburgers made from hormone-free beef, Belgian fries cooked in duck oil, fried crab claws, and German bratwurst!
East of the Harbor, a local’s favorite is Island Wing Café(located in 98 Palms). Island Wing Café features multiple screens and baked (not fried) wings in just about every flavor imaginable.   
For those staying in Crystal Beach near Destin Commons, Miller’s Ale Househas you covered. The whole family will enjoy the tavern like atmosphere of Miller’s Ale House, where you’ll find daily bar and menu specials and a lot of football action. 
In Seagrove Beach, 723 Whiskey Bravohas an amazing rooftop bar and cozy fire pits for comfortable football viewing and watching the spectacular fall sunsets.  
At the corner of Hwy 30A and 98 in Inlet Beach, Shades Bar and Grill is notorious for being a go-to place for football.  With 16 televisions and a projector, football fans can enjoy lots of games along with great beer and food.
So you don’t have to pick an off weekend for your next beach getaway, plan to hit one of our game day hot spots in Destin or simply enjoy the game on the flat screen TV within your comfortable vacation rental.
