4 in our party. 2 adults 2 kids. All happy with meals. My grilled fish and potato salad were excellent. Best okra and hushpuppies I've ever had. Even the fried food had that "fresh food" taste. Not disappointed at all.

The fish tacos were absolutely wonderful. The fries were above average. The fried okra was nice and light. Located away from tourist traffic and definitely worth the drive.

Stopped in after reading the reviews and wasn't disappointed at all. Staff was friendly and ordering was quick. It's a sit down after ordering type of place, but the picnic tables make it family friendly. Gumbo was excellent and cheese grits were awesome. Everything was fresh and the fried food wasn't too heavy on the fried side. Can't wait to... More

So glad we decided to trek out to Stewby's tonight for dinner. As my family sits around the table, there's not much discussion except each kid trying to convince the other kid that their food is better than the others. We got a variety of dishes: Fried shrimp, grilled jumbo shrimp, fried fish, and grilled chicken salad. This place did... More

We eat here regularly. It is a come as you are atmosphere. Customers sit at picnic tables on the wraparound porch, which is enclosed. The food is always very good and the wait for it is short, once your order is placed. If the place is packed, we go through the drive thru and take it to our house. There... More

Family vacation in Destin and made a side trip to Fort Walton. Tried this place based on reviews and we are glad we did. Fish tacos were among the best we've ever had. We also ordered a fried platter of fish, shrimp and oysters. Though I'm not a huge fan of fried seafood, theirs is excellent! Light crisp batter that... More

I thought the reviews hyped it up more than it was but I also am not the biggest seafood fan so that could be coloring my opinion. Overall the food was good, good fried food, and I was really impressed by the fish. I never crave fish but it was my favorite part. My husband and I split the seafood... More

I've been once before and the food was okay. This time my fried fish was overcooked and dry and my fried okra was stalky. :-(

The food was good. I'm from Panama City so we have the same fare here. Upon entering the establishment you are immediately at the order window. By looking up you can see all of your food options. The pick up window is just a short jaunt; about 5 side steps to the right. I will say that if there are... More
