If you want a fancy sit down meal go somewhere else but if you just want fresh good seafood at a good price go here! I had the grilled amberjack and it was great! Fresh seafood with 2 sides for $10.99!

Everyone in the family loved what they ordered. Fast, casual, tasty. It is inland, so do not look for it on the beach. Picnic tables on screened porch, very casual. Will return.

My family and I went to Stewby's while on vacation. We read all of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to try for ourselves. Everyone was right. There isn't much parking and not a lot of tables inside. You order your food at the window. I suggest looking online to already have an idea of what you want.... More

I checked TripAdvisor when we were in the Ft. Walton Beach area. I wanted to see what was #1 and I found Stewby's. It was a fun place with good service and very good food. I had the catch of the day Sammie. The young man who took the orders was friendly and helpful. Not a fancy place, but that... More

The food was delicious. The food was much better than a local tourist trap seafood restaurant. It was also much more affordable. Stewby's is worth a visit. Don't let the building turn you away. The food was awesome!

Okay, we figured with all these fantastic reviews, it was worth a 30 minute drive from our condo in Destin. Also, even on a Sunday night in September, most of the top restaurants in Destin were pretty busy. This is the kind of place you don't want ANYONE else to know about. Like the secret detours around Atlanta traffic ...... More

Don't let the look of the place scare you off. Excellent seafood at reasonable prices. Shrimp "sammich" seems to be the featured meal, but I haven't disappointed with anything I've had.

Just as the title says...please don't judge this place by the way it looks. I spent months and months driving by this place until me and my husband finally decided to stop in one day. Best decision ever. Definitely one of FWB's hidden treasures. Food is great and quick. People are nice and friendly. It can get packed at times... More
