We were in Destin/SanDestin for the 4th of July and enjoyed a FABULOUS dinner on the back deck at the Dewey Destin restaurant at the Harbor. Highly Recommended.

My family vacationed in Destin this week and Dewey's was highly recommended by some friends we met on the beach. We were NOT disappointed. You know how sometimes you go to the "famous" seafood restaurant on vacation, wait for two hours for a table, and then the food is awful? Well not here. We arrived at 6:30 on a Tuesday... More

This is a great local place to grab a bite to eat or buy some freshly caught shrimp! We come here every year to buy shrimp and take it back to the condo to cook!

The bartenders were absolutely amazing with their service and efficiency! Our waiter was awesome also! The steaks were delicious they could have been cut with a fork! The crab legs were good. The tuna was a little dry but should have followed the waiters suggestion and ordered med rare. The salads were just average basically bag salad. The brownie with... More

We ate at the Harborside restaurant on Friday night and once again it was awesome. We had the captains and the mates platter and both were delicious. I also had the gumbo and this is highly recommended.

This place gives you that local feel, it is very shanty/shabby, but in a good way. They have indoor and outdoor seating with a view of crab island and the water. I had the popcorn shrimp, it was fresh and delicious. They have great hush-puppies, a little spicy, but so yummy. My husband had the fried fish, it was average.... More

This was my 2nd year here, my boyfriend has been numerous times--the place is an annual family tradition for them. The larger your party, the likelier you are to have to wait. We had a 5-10 minute wait for a table for two, and we sat outside, with a great view of the harbor at sunset. Our hot crab dip... More

This place was recommended by one of our boat captains but it did not live up to the hype. The hot crab dip was nearly cold, the food not that great and the mixed drinks were watered down. We sat on the patio and were able to see the planes fly by for the Thursday celebration but our view of... More

My mouth is watering just typing this!! My husband and I have a little tradition when visiting restaurants--we order the same item at each place to determine who has the best--well Dewey Destin Harborside WINS hands down for crab cakes. I have tasted MANY crabcakes around Destin, Ft. Walton. My husband always orders a bowl of gumbo and he too... More

This is one of the best places I've ever been to for fish. Amazing! We will be back! Location is tucked away from busy area.
