Poppy’s Crazy Lobster Destin serves fresh local seafood and cajun and creole dishes. A.J. Tusa, Jr., brings his Crazy Lobster concept originated in New Orleans to Baytowne Wharf. Having been in the restaurant business for over 45 years, A.J.’s experience in his family restaurants started in 1905 when his father and uncle opened Messina’s Oyster House in the French Quarter. A.J. landed in Sandestin at the conception of Baytowne Wharf in Sandestin. As one of the first restaurant operators in the Village with Roberto’s Pizzeria, Hammerhead’s Bar & Grille & Poppy’s Seafood Factory, now Poppy’s Crazy Lobster, he has enjoyed many years of operation within the Sandestin Resort and continues to provide quality food and service to new and repeat customers.
