Grab a Slice From One of the Best Pizzerias in Destin

Believe it or not, Americans eat about 100 acres of pizza each day. Whether you like classic pies or specialty creations, several local restaurants serve some of the best pizzas in town. Those near our Destin apartments include:

Merlin's Pizza

With a 4.5-star rating on Tripadvisor, Merlin's Pizza is a Destin favorite. It welcomes locals and visitors alike and is where regulars are greeted by name. The restaurant opened in 1999, and was "founded on the premise of using nothing but the finest ingredients." If you're feeling adventurous, try the pizza topped with garlic shrimp and toasted Parmesan. This tasty pie also comes covered with scallions, a premium cheese blend, and Italian herbs and seasonings.

Vinny McGuire's

Vinny McGuire's is a pizza pub known for its lively setting. It features red lighting, Italian movie posters, and dollar bills hanging everywhere, from the walls to the ceiling. During your visit, build your own pizza. On a New York-style crust, you can enjoy Canadian bacon, meatballs, jalapenos, and more. Round out your meal with a Greek salad and a pint of McGuire's Irish Pale Ale.

Landshark's Pizza

Step into Landshark's Pizza, where you can enjoy "local brews and tasty chews." The restaurant offers a "Cheers" like setting. Co-owner Brain Hassman takes the time to know his customers. He provides a fun place to watch the big game, and there's never a dull moment when dining at Landshark's. Every pizza features generous toppings and is baked to perfection in a brick oven. Specialty creations include The White, The Landshark, and El Diablo (an owner's special).

Before sampling some pizza, enjoy a day of parasailing fun. If you would like to call Olympus Emerald Coast home, please contact us. Our leasing team will help you discover everything our apartments in Destin have to offer.
