Bring Mom to Destin This Mother’s Day

Mother's Day events in Destin

The Solaris cruise features a special menu just for Mother’s Day.

It’s nearly impossible to find a gift that speaks to the significance of Mother’s Day. After all, it was mom who taught us the best things in life aren’t things at all. So this Mother’s Day, skip the coffee mug and candle. Bring mom to Destin for the beach, brunch, and bonding.

When it comes to finding the right place to take mom to eat, consider these two outstanding options: brunch at HarborWalk Village or lunch aboard the SunQuest Cruise.

Brunch begins at 10 a.m. in the HarborView Room at the Emerald Grande. The chefs have prepared a menu specifically for Mother’s Day. Begin your meal at the omelet station or fruit and salad bar. Then, at the carving station, you’ll find steamship of beef, smoked bone-in ham, three cheese au gratin potatoes, and sautéed vegetables in parmesan butter. The sauté station will serve Gulf shrimp in a white wine sauce, stone ground yellow grits, and creamed herbed risotto. Kids’ fare, including chicken tenders, mac and cheese, fruit, and cupcakes is also available.

The only thing as good as the food is the view overlooking the Destin Harbor.

Then again, if you really want to give mom to a one-of-a-kind view of the Gulf of Mexico, treat her to the SunQuest Mother’s Day lunch cruise. On this 125-foot yacht, there’s dining, dancing, and of course, dazzling views. The cruise departs at 1 p.m., and the day’s menu includes chicken piccata with lemon caper butter, petit filet mignon in a cabernet reduction, golden tile fish poached in a white wine and lemon sauce, and eggplant Parmesan. Kids can enjoy country style chicken fingers, mac ‘n cheese, and fresh vegetables.

Both events require reservations.  Call 850.424.0622 to reserve your seat at the HarborView Room for brunch, or 850.650.2519 to reserve your seat aboard the SunQuest Mother’s Day Lunch Cruise.
