    Lunch with the boys

    found this restaurant on “Bring Fido”. The outside space was great, overlooking the Destin Harbor. I had the shrimp po-boy. Personally I found the food good ( 4 out of 5) but somewhat overpriced. 6 shrimp on the sandwich. I had to ask for water for the boys, and after they spilled the water it was not refilled. Was informed by our waitress that she had forgotten to turn in our order, but that was not a problem, since we were in no rush! Needed cocktail sauce but no one around to ask for it. I’d like to believe this was an off day for our lunch. I would honestly give it a second go!

    Had to wait an hour and a half because this place is so popular, but everyone was super friendly. While standing in the bar area, Nox was given so much attention and was given water as soon as we sat. They offered treats, but I had just fed him. Great place for a puppy!

    No dog seating area if temp is under 65

    Just FYI, if it’s a cooler day, they will not have any outside seating which is the only pet-friendly option there.

    Awesome spot!

    We found Boshamps using this app and weren’t disappointed at all! The porch is dog friendly and the staff were so good to us and our pup! Food was great too! Already looking forward to going back!

    Great food, loves dogs

    Amazing seafood. Amazing view of harbor. And awesome sand play area on the shore. Our pup entertained many people as we waited an hour for our table. This restaurant loves dogs. There are 3 outdoor patio areas to choose from which is where you will sit if you have a dog. There was live music when we went on Saturday. Although a long wait, the atmosphere was perfect for a family and dogs too. My kids enjoyed the sand, they even had a floating jumping pad for kids to enjoy too.

    Absolutely amazing!

    We came here for dinner on 9/2/21. The food was absolutely amazing, the service was stellar, and everyone was so excited that our dogs were there. They brought us a giant bowl of ice water for them while we ate. 10/10 would eat here again!

    Very friendly!

    We felt very welcome from the moment we got there. We felt very comfortable having our Bella with us on the outdoor deck. The seating was high tables but she sat in a chair next to us or in my lap. They gladly provided her with water in her bowl.

    Great food

    We went based on a recommendation. They sat us out on the deck, it was enclosed and the food was good. Very friendly staff and was low impact for our dog.

    Awesome food, great place to bring your pup

    We brought our dog on a Friday night. The food was great and everyone was so happy to see our pup. Got a water bowl right away and lots of love from the employees. Would definitely go back with our dog.

    Great find for you & your pooches!

    This is the most dog friendly restaurant I’ve ever been! As soon as we walked in the door, our 2 labs were greated with great enthusiasm, love and pets! We were seated in a beautiful spot outside on the deck that looked out on the back harbour. Our dogs enjoyed the constant flow of treats from staff. We were not alone - the majority of people there brought along their pooches. A water bowl was immediately brought to the table while we waited for our food - which was great! On the way out, the staff said goodbye to our pups and even gave them big hugs, then suggested we run down to the dock and let them swim on the beach behind the restaurant. As you can imagine, our labs LOVED the swim time. I would recommend to anyone wanting to eat out with their pups! We will be back!

    Great place to stop with the dogs

    We stopped here for dinner on our last night of family vacation. We had all 3 of our fur babies with us, 2 Pomeranians and our German Shepherd puppy. The staff here is absolutely A M A Z I N G ! As soon as we walked in the staff were loving on the pups and even gave them treats. Food was amazing and atmosphere was great. (Beware the outdoor tables are high tops, so our German Shepherd felt a tad bit excluded on the ground. Poms got to sit at the table but we were watching them to make sure they didn’t fall from the chairs the whole time.) Would highly recommend stopping by

    Amazing view with better food

    Made a detour to Destin on our way back to Orlando and saw that this restaurant was pet friendly, so we thought we would give it a shot. So glad we did! Not just dog friendly but dog loving- our fur babies were spoiled by all the employees, they even brought over some treats while we were eating! Food was absolutely incredible, we will be making a trip back in the future for sure.

    Definitely Dog Friendly

    We stopped in & were told we could sit anywhere outside. We were able to get a table in elevated cover area. All staff were so friendly and welcoming of our dog. One lady gave him 2 milk bones and brought him a bowl of water. Would definitely return with our dog if we brought him back. Food & drinks were great. Our server was very sweet & accomodating of us having him with us.

    Yes to dogs

    We came on a crowded evening for dinner and had no trouble being seated with our pup. The outdoor porch is covered and has a beautiful view of the water at night. It was a bit loud with live music and the tables are close together so not the best for nervous dogs. Food was very good.

    Always visit

    We LOVE visiting Boshamps. The pups love it because it smells good, the staff is friendly, and they get to hang out on the patio. There are a number of chairs and table legs (tall) that my pups see to get tangled on, but they're usually very ADHD. If you have a dog like mine, bring something for them to chew on. The staff here usually have a treat for your pups and will bring out water for them. The food is great and the atmosphere is good.

    Great Place

    Great outdoor bar & patio! Bloody Mary's and raw oysters were fantastic. The best place we found in Destin to watch sports with your pup. A lot of big TV's, at least 12 on the patio bar. Our server was very attentive to our lab. She brought him water and a rawhide bone. Highly recommend!

    dogs allowed outside

    They allow dogs but do nothing special for them. No one acknowledged our dogs or offered them water. The tables are tall so it made if difficult to interact with our dogs. Food was good.

    June's first restaurant!

    This was our Dane's first time at a restaurant, and our first time taking a pet with us out to eat. The staff was INCREDIBLE! At first we were nervous they would give us dirty looks and banish us to the worst table they had. Complete opposite! Servers came out of their way to say hi, didn't mind at all if she was in there way (in fact they might have even liked it because it have them a chance to talk to her!), and we got a wonderful seat on the cool, covered patio. They brought her a big bucket of water and didn't mind that she drooled. I was expecting that they would avoid seating people around us, but we had people all around us! It was a relief to be treated like actual people instead of trash. And the food! Amazing! If you vacation with your pups, Boshamps is a must go!
