My wife and I went to Dewey Destin and were very disappointed. Food was very overpriced, $30.95 for Snapper and $26.95 for swordfish, $3.50 for 6 hush puppies. Paper napkins and no table cloth. IDK maybe I'm an old fuddy duddy complaining about the price but we expected much better for a dinner in this price range. The swordfish came... More

We've been to the Destin area enough to know that while there are a million touristy seafood restaurants, few (if any) offer visitors fresh seafood at a reasonable price. So when we recently hit this Dewey's (the other location was only open for lunch), we expected it to be like all the other ones out there. Luckily, it was not.... More

Nice staff...liked the Grouper Destin a lot. Loved the crab stuffing. Worth going to. Casual and on the beach with outdoor seating for sunset. Not a bad combo!

So we ordered Fried Scallops and Fried Oysters, sides available were 1/3 ear of corn, fries, potatoes or hush puppies, Tried the corn but it was old and tasteless, the Scallops and Oysters seemed fired at different time and were not...

While visiting the gulf coast for New Year's week and seeing Dewey Destin's on the BeachTV channel, we made it a choice for Saturday lunch...We were NOT disappointed!! Great food and service!! At the suggestion of our excellent server, Gabby, we had the grouper with portabella and Andouille cream sauce...Outstanding!! Followed by delicious key lime pie. Even though it was... More

The nicer harbor side location is pretty nice for groups and couples. Good food, fresh fish and good service. Not that fancy and not too casual and reasonably comfortable place to enjoy a family dinner.

The weather is a little cool this time of year, but that only means fewer tourists and shorter waits at this wonderful restaurant. The deck is enclosed and heated. The food is great and the portions are substantial. The kids meals are very large. Great place to eat and drink.

It was cold outside but they had heaters inside to keep us warm. We ate at thier other location last year. The food was good but it... More
