The Southern establishment is opening up in Destin Commons next to Uncle Buck’s Fishbowl & Grill, near other restaurants in the Commons such as Chipotle, Smashburger, and World of Beer. According to Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen website, their “family-style restaurant will offer guests an interactive atmosphere to make memories with friends and family at the dinner table, just like if they were at momma’s house.”

If you’ve ever eaten at a Paula Deen restaurant before, you’ll know that comfort food is a key staple on the menu, with Southern-inspired dishes you won’t find elsewhere. With menu items including chicken and biscuits, “Best Ever Southern Fried Chicken,” and Georgia-fried catfish, we’re eagerly awaiting Paula’s grand opening in Destin!
