What can we say? This place was delicious! Cheap, yummy and great service. I can tell why it is a favorite. It was the first stop we made driving from Pensacola to Destin....and we stopped again on our way back to the Pensacola airport. The shrimp and fish tacos were the best we have ever had!

One of our regular stops every year. It's worth the 30 minutes you spend leaving the beach! Great food, prices and service. Way to go!

The food is really tasty and reasonably priced. It's a very casual dining experience. You order your food, pay, and pick it up at the window in a few minutes when it's ready.

The outdoor dining area has recently been enclosed and improved. There is a line out the front door because of the great reviews. This place is away from the beaten path of vacationers but the locals love it too. Tough to get a seat but worth a little wait. Food is hot because you pick it up when they call... More

The food was average....it's fast food but with "dine in" prices...I had the soft shell crab dinner...they give you plenty of food...and it was OK....spent over $67.00 for 5 people and that's without drinks.... Service was good and friendly.....just not for us

A friend of mine read about Stewby's right here on tripadvisor and recommended it to me. Boy am I glad she did! We ate there twice during our week long stay in Ft Walton Beach. The seafood is exceptional with a great assortment of sides. The atmosphere is very casual. You walk up to a window to order your food... More

Saw the great reviews so we had to stop by. It's a neat little local place with a cool atmosphere. The inside has "picnic" style tables and is low key which was perfect for our group of 9 with 5 kids. I had the fried shrimp, my wife had the grilled shrimp tacos and the kids had shrimp and fish...

We stayed in Ft Walton and heard about a "hole in the wall local place". It was delicious! We really enjoyed the grilled shrimp and potato salad. The price was good and the service was excellent! Everyone was so friendly.

The fried shrimp were excellent and the atmosphere was laid back. We will be stopping here on our next trip to Fort Walton for a shrimp fix.

Don't let the line out the door turn you off to it - it's very worth it! The line to order takes a while but that's because everything is prepared fresh. Some of the best grilled shrimp and hushpuppies I've never had!
