Best in Town for local seafood

This place is by far the best place in town for TRUE local seafood. The owner and his family have been harvesting the local waters since the first one showed up in 1835. The town is named after his great-great-granddaddy so it's no wonder they know a little bit about seafood. The "Boat Grade... read more

The servers were very attentive here, the atmosphere was very 'seaside', and the food was expertly prepared. We had wonderful crab cakes and fried shrimp. Nice place to go for lunch or dinner.

We waited about 30 minutes for our table- the food was just so-so. I had the pecan crusted Mahi- extremely dry (the waiter recommended this). I couldn't eat it. My husband had I believe the seafood platter and said it was horrible. Maybe it was just what we had but wouldn't return. Others at the table said their food was... More

My husband and I had heard several great recommendations on this restaurant and with trepidation decided to give it a try. Sorry we did. I ordered the $28.00 grouper parmesan, my husband the mahi parmesan. Neither were up to our standards of a good entree. They were edible, but very disappointed in the size of the fish. Also you only... More

We decided to try a restaurant we had not been to before. We got a great seat harbor side. We did call ahead seating which worked perect! they also take a limited amount of reservations which is uncommon around here. I was in the mood for fried seafood and my meal was fantastic! My husband had grouper with crab which... More

After eating here many times, I have high expectations for this place. This is the one restaurant I will make at least one trip to, every visit to Destin. This last time we went the fish I got was overcooked and some of the thinner parts of the fillet were inedible. However this is still one of my favorite restaurants... More

The location is nice, right on the harbor and the service is friendly. The food was basic, but really solid. Nothing too fancy or elaborate, but they cook a really good fish.

We came here for Kung Pao Oysters, Kung Pao Shrimp, Shrimp and Grits. This was the third time in 4 weeks...it's that good. Came here after happy hour @ AJ's for the quality of the food, the view, and the friendly service.

Dewey's is one of the favorites of everyone who comes to Destin. The service and views are terrific. As with any restaurant, some times you get something that isn't terrific, but the staff will immediately take care of anything that isn't up to par. 99% of the time, the entire visit is perfect. I love the huge friend shrimp and... More

Three of us ate at Dewey Destin last week. Even though it was a cool evening, we sat out on the porch area where the heaters made it very comfortable. We had a great waitress, very informative of the menu items. I had a seared tuna steak that was delicious, it makes my mouth water as I think of it.... More
