I didn't enjoy the Mahi Destin and will not eat here again. The fish was bland and the crab meat was edible only because of the lemon. The hush puppies were just OK. My husband's shrimp and scallops did not taste fresh either. The service was good as well as the location. This place is overrated!

It was a chilly evening, but eating on the patio, with the scenery and the heaters, great night with great food. The Parmesan Mahi Mahi was to die for. My wife's burger was great too. Get there a little early as it seems very popular. This is definitely a place where we will return next time.

We went to this restaurant last year and had a decent meal, this year, not so good. Went on Friday 4/4/14-was able to get a table for 8 of us right away, however, service was sketchy at best. Best part of the meal-two of the teens with us liked their burgers and chowder. The seafood was subpar. We had to... More

Went on advice of friends and it was more than advertised. Terrific well priced food, good service and an outstanding view. This will be a regular when we are in the area.

Just what we were looking for. Our server, Bonnie, went out of her way to make our night enjoyable. The food was outstanding. Don't miss Jack's Scallops and the fried cheese grits. The fish is as fresh as it gets! The atmosphere is casual and fun. This is a local joint and is no secret to the locals.

We ate at Dewey's and enjoyed it. We both had the fish sandwich and both really liked it. I also tried the buffalo shrimp and thought they were good as well. Really liked the atmosphere on the water. We would most definitely go back.

Food is so-so and service is cocky. Overpriced menu. Our party tried various dishes, none of which were particularly impressive. The soup was warm and had to be reheated. A nice location to sit outside but the tables are so close together that the servers repeatedly pushed past the back of my chair going to and from the kitchen.

We ordered the grouper sandwiches fried. The batter tasted like it was cooked in old oil and was slightly over cooked. The fish has a smell to it that suggests it was not very fresh. The coleslaw side was very good and that's the only reason we didn't give it just one star. Pass on this place. You can do... More

The food is about as good as you will get in Destin with the "Water front View" but if you want really good seafood while you are visiting get off the water and explore. WHAT ever you do don't get the seafood chowder. It is a weak soup with zero base or texture.
