Dewey Destin Harborside - good food and friendly service

We ate at Dewey's at the recommendation of friends back home who had eaten here before. On our first visit, we ate on the outdoor patio overlooking the harbor. There is a separate bar area. Nothing fancy here, but very friendly, good service and good food. When we ordered hamburgers (again... read more

Every time we visit Destin, this is a must stop at least twice! Plan ahead, everyone else feels the same way. We have never had a bad experience or a bad meal!!

Visited Dewey Destin's for a company holiday dinner. The back deck was decorated so beautifully and we were able to see the night's harbor lights. Service was very good; appetizer display was beautiful; service and dinner were great. I highly recommend his restaurant for casual, delicious seafood with a view.

Enjoyed the outdoor patio even in January. Heaters placed around for comfort. Wait staf very friendly and our waitress Debbie reccomended her favorite, saving us $. Jalapeño crab cakes were awesome and we ordered the fried Shrimp which was in a light golden batter and not greasy at all!

We ate here tonight at the recommendation of a friend back home (TN). Pros: 1.) Fresh seafood. Everything we had was tasty (sans the appetizer, but more on that in the cons). We tried the fried shrimp: it was fresh, great tempura type batter, properly cooked and actually came with moderately big shrimp. This was served with french fries (these... More

We always go here for dinner at least once while in the Destin area. The view of the harbor is very nice and the service is friendly and excellent. We have never had a bad meal there, the entree portion sizes are large enough for two average size appetites. If Trigger fish is available, it is amazing!

Dewey Destin's has great food at prices that are average for the area. Def worth the wait. Views of the bay are awesome while you wait or sit outside for some great views while you eat.
