It was cold outside but they had heaters inside to keep us warm. We ate at thier other location last year. The food was good but it... More

This is one of two Dewy Destin's restaurants in Destin this one on the harbor the other on Choctaw Bay. The food in both places is old Florida local fresh fish, not fancy but so good. Service is great the view in both places is nice. Don't miss at least one of these places!

Our guest ordered salad wth grilled shrimp. Although I didn't ash her how she liked it, I could tell the salad was pretty boring. The lettuce was... More

This Dewey's location is more outside on the wharf setting with much of the same food as their other restaurant. Seafood is very good.

Excellent seafood restaurant that we were told was a favorite of the locals. Our server was great and knowledgeable. Everything was cooked to perfection, we enjoyed it! Fried crab claws were great, as well as peel and eat em shrimp, crab legs, and red snapper Mediterranean style!

My husband and I enjoyed fresh, local seafood at Dewey Destin Harborside--an old Florida ambiance that reminds one of Destin Harbor decades ago. We ordered the grilled grouper with red potatoes and corn on the cob and fried red snapper, shrimp and scallops. The variety allowed us to sample several of the seafood dishes and none disappointed. The fish (both... More

We enjoyed lunch at Dewey Destin Harborside with a friend who lives in Destin (we were visiting). She eats there all the time and I could see why. The food was fresh, tasty, and reasonably priced (for seafood). I had the scallop appetizer as my entree and it was plenty of food. Great tasting! My husband had a fish sandwich... More

Both are excellent. Harborside is larger and a full service restaurant on the Harbor. The other Dewey Destin's is Crab Island on Choctawhatchee Bay. The Crab Island location can be accessed by boat from the Bay. It is casual outdoor dining. Same fresh well prepared shrimp and grouper, place your order and pay at window, sit outside over the water.
