It is expensive, although the fish is very fresh and they will cook it any way you want it. The servers are very good, they make sure you have enough to drink and never need to ask.

My wife, her sister, and I went to a competitor restaurant, which ran out of shrimp and other things. My wife's sister was told about Dewey's by another customer seated nearby. We were all very disappointed and left Joe's. Our family went to dinner at a different place. The next evening, our family went to Dewey's. We got a parking... More

We were a party of 4 adults and 6 kids. We waited about 40 minutes for a table. We sat outside upstairs. Nice view. I had pecan crusted grouper that was fantastic. My son ordered Parmesan grouper. He didn't like it and told the waiter (he guaranteed the fish selection) so they took it away. The replacement swordfish was delicious... More

This place was recommended by the front desk of our hotel when we asked for a place to get a nice seafood dinner. Service was fast, fish and sides were really good, especially the grouper. The price was fair and the view over the harbour area was very nice.

We were a family of six in town for a long weekend. We ate at a different seafood restaurant each night and Dewey Destin Harborside was the hands down favorite of everyone. The fish and shrimp was fresh and cooked perfectly. It could be considered a little pricey which we didn't mind in order to get actual gulf seafood and... More

After asking several locals where they go for seafood and being told "Dewey Destin's, but not the one on the strip. Go to the other one". I should have listened. Our waiter was surly. He ran into a hostess as she was seating us and growled at her. It took forever for our food to arrive and when it did... More

Great view of the harbor. Enjoyed the mahi mahi and crab cakes. The setting is a little rustic but the food was very good. Nice to get new potatoes and corn on the cob instead of all the fried food. A long wait if you don't make it before 5, so get there early. Expensive but good.

I've eaten at both Dewey Destin locations. Both had good food just different ways of serving it. This location is more fancier with tables and chairs and real utensils. You can sit outside or inside and there's a bar. I had shrimp at both places, both were very good this location I could choose sides like baked potato a d... More
