Ron, our server, was a jerk but tried to turn it around after a couple of mean looks from me. Too little too late. Won't ever go back. Food is bland.

We did enjoy our table overlooking the harbor. If it was not cloudy we could have seen the sunset. We both ordered grouper. It was fine, nothing outstanding especially for the price. Yes, the 2 hush puppies served with our entree was very good. Other side of French fries were hot but seemed as though may have been cooked once... More

We went to Dewey's on the recommendation of friends. Atmosphere is great as we enjoy dining outdoors & the views are nice. Asked the very nice waiter for a mild white fish & he suggested Mahi-Mahi. No one in our party liked it. Our fries tasted like they were hours old & although we liked our hushpuppies the best, they... More

Full disclosure, I hate seafood. So take this review for what it is. Our group of 23 went on a Thursday night. They don't take reservations even for large parties so we waited at six pm for about an hour. They said it would be quicker if we agreed to sit on the deck, no prob, except it was hot... More

We love Dewey Destin's restaurant and go there every November, when visiting Destin Fl. It's an old funky place with loads of charm and beautiful scenery.food is always fresh and delicious. My favorite is their tuna dip.Prices are very reasonable . Looking forward to Nov. 1

Ducked for lunch. Deceiving from the road. Appears small but is bigger than it looks. We had lunch on deck overlooking the harbor as the rain came down. Fresh snapper blackened served in a sandwich was very good. Server was attentive and anticipated our needs. Great atmosphere and good food. What more could ask for!

The service here was great, but the food wasn't as good as the Dewey Destin on Calhoun Ave. Got the same exact order here...fried shrimp and snow crab legs just didn't taste as good. The view here is wonderful and the chocolate turtle cheesecake was amazing!!! But you are waited on at this location whereas the other is a lot... More

We arrived and was not given a nice greeting and hustled to a table in a bad spot. I asked to be moved to an empty table by a window but our server replied that could not be moved......? Why? Our food was awful. French fries were still frozen on the inside! The filet was too tuff to eat. Hush... More

Service was ok. We informed the waiter that our fries didn't taste right and his response was... we don't have good fries. The fish is cooked with cornmeal. I thought it was just ok. My husband doesn't care for cornmeal at all! We sat outside and I saw several bugs running around the floor and a roach was on our... More
