Saw that this place was #1 on trip advisor so had to try it out and the reviews were right! Fried fish plate was great. Loved the breading that is used on the fish. Okra was excellent too. Fun and relaxing environment with quick service.

Stewby's has great food and service. One of the best meals we had in the Destin/Fort Walton area. Definitely not a fancy restaurant, but short wait and good choices. The fish tacos with fried okra, an excellent choice.

Stewby's is the pearl you look for in all those oysters. This place has fresh seafood in good potions for some of the cheapest prices around. The order window and seat finding added even more to the atmosphere. This is a great place to try!

Stewby's has good food but way overpriced for this area. If this place had air conditioning it might be worth the price but it is what it is, a Shanty. This restaurant is in no way a poor man's Red Lobster. A one time visit was good enough for my family, bring your plastic if you want to eat there.... More

This little shanty is fantastic. They pay attention to the sides and that makes a difference. No soggy corn and potatoes here. The fish tacos are my favorite. So far I have had them with Amberjack, Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. I like to sub the fries with hush puppies. Sweet tea is always perfect and free refills.

I gave this place a four because I think that a drive thru/walk up type restaurant where nobody is actually serving you merits nothing higher than that. Now, with that being said, the food here was great! We had a little bit of everything I think between my family of six and everyone enjoyed their meal. The coleslaw was mayo... More

Stewby's Seafood Shanty is probably best described as a fast food Red Lobster. The quality of the food is the same as Red Lobster with slightly cheaper prices and quicker service (5 minutes in my case). Even though I ordered a fried shrimp meal, I found the food greasier than expected. I ordered a sweet tea so I could get... More
