The Boathouse Oyster Bar

 
 We began in 1986 when Wanda "Mamma Gumbo" Green and Paul "Action" Jackson took over the business, in the beginning we were about half the size we are today - we had a small detached building behind the Boathouse - called "The Outback" - that served as our kitchen. Each day we prepared fresh hamburgers, fish sandwiches, and more. We cooked on a gas grill, much like yours at home, and served our ice cold beer and crawfish in the Boathouse and on the decks outside.

 As a Boathouse originally, there have always been wooden walls and rafters where our customers, local and tourists alike, would write their names on and then staple up a dollar bill. People come back every year to find their dollar bill still there. The Boathouse is a local hotspot and we love our visitors. The only thing that disturbed the dollar bills was Hurricane Opal back in 1995. Destin took a direct hit and the Boathouse was flattened! Our customers, not having any place to go for a cold beer, gathered their chainsaws and tools and helped us rebuild the Boathouse as it is today. Hurricane Opal hit on October 4, 1995, and we reopened the day after Thanksgiving 1995 - thanks to our wonderful customers and friends!  
 The Boathouse has developed several traditions over the years. We take pride in the quality of the food that we serve and only serve Appalachacola Oysters (unless they close their beds.) Plus our Crab and Shrimp Gumbo has won many local awards. Our crawfish come only from Louisiana and you can "suck the head and eat the tail" from mid-February to mid-June each year.  
 Another great tradition at The Boathouse is our excellent musical talent! Many talented local musicians play at The Boathouse from March through October - seven nights a week, plus Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons. Our musicians play a variety of music: Current Hits, County, Jimmy Buffet covers, Jazz, Classic Rock, Beach Music and more! They also love to take requests from the audience and watch out - if you can sing, they'll drag you onstage and you just might find that you're the next Boathouse Idol!  
 We are certain that you will enjoy all of our performers. You might be surprised one evening - you just can't tell who might pop in: Jeff Cook from Alabama, Keith Urban, or Hal Aiken, among others, have each dropped by The Boathouse to play with the band!  
 Kelly Byrd has been with us for many years and does an outstanding job on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons beginning at four, and lasting until about eight. His smooth, melodious voice makes for easy listening at sunset on the harbor! Kelly will also play a little jazz and has a couple of CDs available to purchase. You will find that Kelly is gone every now and then, also playing for private parties, many of which were booked by people who enjoy him at the Boathouse!  
 Tom Phillips has played for people all over the country for over thirty years. He played the ski areas of Summit county,Colorado, for seven years. He played in Seattle,WA. for a year and travels once in a while to play large functions. He is a native of the Gulf Coast and has spent most of his career playing music from Pensacola to Panama City. His biggest joy is helping people have fun and getting them involved with whatever is going on through the evening. The music is a variety of Beach Music, Country, Sing-a-longs and more.
