KennyD and his wife, Leta, owned and operated a bar in New Orleans since 1997 called KennyD’s Corner Pub, and just sold it after Mardi Gras 2012. For the past 16 years they have been living in Destin and now have two sons, Reagan, 14 years old, and Zachary, 10 years old. As soon as they got to Destin, they bought Wahoo’s Oyster Palace and made it the home of Kenny D’s, where the Bayou meets the Beach.
Ms. Gracie has been cooking “a long time” and she will tell you her secret ingredient is always LOVE! It just doesn’t get any better than that. Ms. Gracie and Kenny have done two television cooking shows for the Okaloosa Gas Company called “On the Menu” where they “reluctantly” gave out “most of the secrets” to Ms. Gracie’s cajun fried Turkey and all the trimmings and her Shrimp Etouffe’. Don’t expect to get those recipes again though – she’ll lie to you!
In our business, we know you have many choices, but once you’ve tried it, you’ll see that KennyD’s is the place where you keep comin’ back. A lot of people have vacation homes here and we see those people every year. Some people have said “This is the first place we come when we get into town.” We believe them because we see them so much. We are a family restaurant that loves your relatives more than our own! Not really, but we make you feel that way. Come sit down and relax with us, tell us your stories and we’ll tell you ours!
