Good food but overpriced!

We went here on a recommendation and the food was good but way overpriced. The service was good. We sat on the patio and that was nice, but I doubt we will go back!

Great ambiance on the harbor! Good food. A definite must-go restaurant. Less than half hour wait, but worth it.

Had a family dinner last evening. Nice location. Our wait time was exactly as they specified. Nice waiting area outside. Waitress was happy and energetic and great attention to detail. She remembered my coleslaw side dish when others brought out our food. I got blackened grilled mahi mahi, which was perfectly seasoned and the fish was moist and tasted fresh.... More

We ate at Dewey Destin Harborside twice during our stay this week. Once on Mother's Day, and again on May 14th. Only a short wait for an outside table on both occasions and we took advantage of the time to enjoy a drink at the bar. We had grilled and blackened fresh fish and fried shrimp and all were perfectly... More

We loved every aspect of going here. I got the pecan crusted mahi and it was sooooooo delicious. I would also recommend their bloody Marys.

We eat at Dewey Destin's Harborside several times a year and have been going there and to the original location for years. This time, we were given new menus by our not-too-pleasant waitress. They were four page menus that did not include the lunch dishes we usually order. We asked for the old menu. Our waitress said, incredibly, that this... More

The wait was about a half hour at peak dinner hour on Saturday night. It's kind of pricey, but so are the other restarants in the area. We didn't go for expensive stuff on the menu, so I can't comment on that. I went in wanting fried oysters so that's what I got and they were very good! Not the... More

We ate here twice. The seafood was fresh and tasty. It was well prepared. The fried items were not greasy or over battered. It was nice to sit outside. We tried grouper, mahi, crab cakes and gumbo. The fish was our favorite. The crab cakes were just mediocre. I've actually had better ones from the frozen section at the grocery... More

I had dinner at Dewey Destin last weekend with a group of girlfriends. We made a reservation for 8pm and were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival. This was the only timely part of our experience. It took quite a while to get drinks and place our order but we were chatting and didn't worry about it at the... More

I stumbled on this place when I made a wrong turn and what a turn it was. This is the ultimate seafood dive. Folks were here in bikini's and in their Sunday best (it was Sunday after all) and the line was long but moved fast. You order and pay and find a table (or your boat) and they bring... More
