    Destin Ice. Just because.

    I am pretty sure it's what they used to serve at D&K's.

    I like Goatfeathers and Cocoons (creamier) - depends on the mood, I suspect.
    Helping others is a gift.

    Goatfeather's Seafood Market in Seagrove. Usually one of the first places we stop when we arrive. Smoked Tuna Dip, Steamed Shrimp and Crackers from Goatfeather's. Our first meal in SoWal for many years running now.

    Hammerhead Fred's PCB. Not too much mayo - just creamy enough with a great smokey taste. Generous serving size too. Enough for two couples to share and have plenty. Served with fresh tortilla chips & jalapenos on the side for those who like a little "kick". We try to have some every time we are in the vicinity of Hammerhead's in PCB.

    Louis Louis, just the right amount of smokey flavor and plenty of it.

    Cocoons. Destin Ice is fantastic, but five minute drive to Seagrove v. 40 minutes each way to Destin Ice? Not worth it.

    Cocoon's or Shrimper's.
    Basically, I'm just passing through on my way to Australia.

    Best Smoked Tuna is at Grayton Corner

    Grayton Corner market - the little deli counter inside. Paul uses real tuna and smokes it himself. Outstanding. Sells it to go in little tubs.

    cocoon's, bar none. smokey, but not too. perfect texture for dipping and spreading. just right! we always have to take it up north for family and friends when we make the trip - several coolers worth!

    I think I just drooled. I'll be in Destin for a week then Seagrove for a week so I'll have to give Destin Ice's dip a try. I liked Goatfeathers pretty well, loved their remoulade! Never had the dip at Cocoons but everything else I've ever had there has been yummy. Looking forward to trying Grayton Stores. I loved D&K's shrimp dip, I loved everything at D&K's!! I'm really looking forward to trying Louis Louis!

    We are not allowed to travel to Texas to see our son without bringing some of Cocoon's tuna dip! Lots of reasons why we all love it. The spice mixture and texture is just right. You can buy it in a variety of sizes. It mixes well with other dips if you are having a party.

    Hurricane Oyster Bar has a great tuna dip and a great smoked tuna salad. My 2nd fave would be Cocoons!

    Cocoon's for sure. its the only way to go.

    but I do like Goatfeather's crawfish dip!

    I do miss D&K's shrimp dip with all my heart.

    We took Paul's out to Grayton Beach a couple of weeks ago- it really was delish and very convenient. And I do love Bud and Alley's- and eating it there when it is not crazy crowded and looking at the Gulf. May have to do that tomorrow for lunch!

    It's a little further east in Pier Park, but, believe me....Bootleg Barbeque has the most amazing tuna dip i've ever tasted...it's worth a little drive.

    Chan's in Watercolor had tuna dip on the menu in April. It was really good.... last time I checked it was not currently on the menu. We always love bud and alley's and goatfeathers!

    It is tasty. They served ours with small pieces of toast, which i'd never had. I prefer crackers, but it was good!

    My vote is for Cocoons. It's like heaven on a cracker. It's great to take to a party if you are short on time to make something. A real crowd pleaser, unless you are Jfunn.
