We had a great view and service was good! BUT....we were not too impressed with the meal. We ordered Jack Scallops (best item of everything we ate), The Snapper Special (-- overrated), and The Grouper! If we did return, we'd order different items!

Dewey Destin is surrounded by old trees with views of the harbor. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and will guide you to your best dining choice. The seafood was so fresh and delicious. After dining just take a small stroll to the boardwalk and enjoy the nightlife. A great place for families, date night or anytime!

I ate the crab dip which was really good and the fried shrimp was also good. The service was not great. We had a party of 5 with two separate checks and both bills were charged on one card. Another party of 5 was behind us and arrived after us but their food arrived before us (they had fried food... More

The food was not good on our visit. Crab cakes were severely over cooked and grilled shrimp under cooked.

Visited with my granddaughters. Lots of choices. Pricing is very reasonable. Food came quickly, however waitresses seemed overwhelmed and very busy. We sat on the deck overlooking the harbor, which was very enjoyable. Best dining experience during the 6 day vacation in Destin.

Such great food! Great staff. We went two different times in a 7 day time frame because we liked it THAT much. Got there early to avoid rush. 11:15ish for lunch and 4:30ish for dinner. Both times were excellent for our big party. DEFINITELY MUST TRY.

A few years ago, my husband and son and I went to this restaurant and had a horrible experience. We waited over an hour, the hostesses had no idea who was next on the list and when we were finally seated, we were crammed in a tiny table by the wall. Some friends convinced us to go back and we...

We just spent a week in Destin, and overall, I wasn't impressed with the food offerings for families. I did quite a bit of research, and while there seemed to be several upscale chef restaurants in the area (marketed toward couples and older families), pickings were slim for a family with little kids. We ate lunch one day at the... More

Beat the crowds and go midday. Great service and awesome food. The grilled shrimp are to die for!! The seasoning is great!!! Hush puppies are very good with hint of jalapenos. Loved everything we had.
