Harry T’s restaurant located in Destin, Florida was opened in 1913 in honor of the famous trapeze artist Harrison Babe, who was also known as “Flying Harry T.” The restaurant was originally located on the ground floor of the tallest building in Destin Harbor. In 2007 it was moved to a two-story lighthouse at the Emerald Grande Condominium tower at Harbor Walk Village. The décor of the restaurant is circus themed coupled with memorabilia from the sunken luxury cruise ship, Thracia, and a huge stuffed giraffe stands outside the lighthouse. Despite its playful atmosphere, Harry T’s offers breathtaking views of the ocean that can be enjoyed from mostly ever table in the restaurant. An outdoor covered patio is also available and is open for seating during lunch hours.
Harry T’s restaurant serves American cuisine, and the price range of the main course meals range from $15 to $30; soups and salads cost anywhere from $5 to $15 (menu items are always cheaper during the off-season). Menu selections include steak, chicken, seafood, smokehouse ribs, and pasta. Children’s meals are available, and each week Harry T’s hosts a Kid’s Night with face painting, balloon animals, clowns, and other fun activities for kids. Brunch is served on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
