Great atmosphere!

This place was recommended to me before our trip. Otherwise, I would not have known to go here. I had the stuffed shrimp and loved it. My five year old had the hot dog and actually ate it. I really liked the atmosphere. It was nice to eat at a local place that has a history, rather than a... read more

Loved the great fresh food. The atmosphere was great and it's right on the water. You could look out and see the boats in the harbor. A mist visit when in Destin

Extremely limited seating, very hot in the summertime. Extremely informal which is fine, but not for the price. You order your food, get your own drinks, and have to hunt for a place to sit. Couldn't get napkins, had to find some on a storage rack and get them myself. They ran out of tea, waited 20 minutes and it... More

This place was recommended by the locals! If you want great fresh seafood this is the place! I had a pineapple martini you must have! The crab cakes were huge and full of crab meat. They even had great desserts. I had the lava cake super moist!

Another great dinner at Deweys! A must stop eatery if ever you are in Destin. All meals were wonderful. Steamed crab, fried scallop basket, and stuffed shrimp all served piping hot by friendly servers.

We hit Dewey Destin's around 11:30 for lunch today and it was fantastic! The fried crab claws were great, it was obvious they were fresh, and the serving size was almost more than we could handle. My wife had the Parmesan Grouper and I had the Stuffed Shrimp. Both excellent! We will be back!

My wife and I have been wanting to come here every year on vacation, but this year we finally did. We were well pleased! My wife does t like seafood, but for me it was the perfect seafood place on the gulf. I had fried crab claws as an appetizer (wonderful). I also had the catch of the day which... More

Best crab legs we have ever had. Love the atmosphere, sitting on the dock over looking the water. We also had grilled fish, which was amazing.

We came to Harborside to watch de 4 of July Fireworks and fortunately found a table for six at Dewey. It's a fish restaurant, so we all had fish prepared in different ways, with new potatoes and corn. Had a great time having dinner while watching the fireworks.

Family vacation and was walking the boardwalk, decided to stop in for a quick lunch. Ate inside due to temps were in 90s and wanted some ac. Adults had the fried fish sandwich, most places down here have it on the menu. Very bland, lack of seasoning. Fries needed help, no taste. Hush puppies were a little sweet but overdone.... More
