There is an abundance of fried food options, but the peel and eat shrimp is a great alternative. The shrimp were large to medium size and cooked just right. It is very easy to overcook shrimp, but they got it just right.

It certainly lacks the polish sought by Michelin diners but for consistently superb seafood at very reasonable prices there are few establishments in Florida that can match Catfish Deweys. If you are fortunate to be around when Stone Crab claws are in season there is nowhere better to have them. They are fresh, succulent and perfectly served for prices well... More

I love good catfish and hushpuppies and living in Phoenix, I have yet to find a good catfish place. My wife and I went to Catfish Dewey's twice on our trip, once for dinner where I got the catfish and my wife got crab legs. Then once for lunch, where we both got the catfish. Everything was great! The servers... More

The atmosphere is laid back and the place is a little worn. Over all a great experience. All you can eat catfish and shrimp for $20 can't be beat. Service is great!

All you can eat but you have to get the server or the cook to actually bring u the meal. Catfish fried took 30 minutes each time and don't even think about a drink refill. The food was Ok. I will not return.

All you care to eat crab legs....any day of the week! WOW talk about OUTSTANDING! Can't say enough about this place! It was a $17 taxi ride away from our hotel (Westin Beach Resort) and a little off the beatin' path but so very worth it. We looked it up on line as we wanted to find all you can... More
