STEWBY'S Seafood Shanty is a small take out and drive thru seafood restaurant in Fort Walton Beach. Offering the most affordable and freshest local seafood. You can eat on our enclosed heated and cooled deck or take it to-go. All our seafood is fresh and locally bought. The fish comes straight of the boats in Destin. Average order time is between 7-9 minutes. So if your in a hurry, don't worry. We'll have you on your way in minutes. STEWBY'S also offers a drive thru window for your convenience. But don't let the drive thru fool you. You don't have to sacrifice quality for convenience. Drive thru and take some to go or stop in and order from the walk up window. STEWBY'S is always providing the best quality seafood at the best price!

We found Stewby's on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try even though it was not close to our beach condo. It was worth the drive. Definitely a spot for locals. I had the shrimp dinner with beans and coleslaw and my wife had the fish tacos. Both were excellent. If you're looking for wine and waitresses this... More

Not fancy, but if you want fairly fast fried seafood, it is fresh. Two of us split the platter and got calamari. It was great-my favorites were the fish and shrimp. Ask for malt vinegar, they have it.

SHRIMP, COLE SLAW, AND HUSHPUPPIES are extraordinary and do not leave Fort Walton, FL without visiting Stewbys for shrimp. Hubs and I split a combo of scallops and shrimp with seasoned fries, cole slaw, and hushpuppies. The scallop were mediocre at best (tough and over breaded) but everything else was fantastic, especially the shrimp. This is a small place with... More

We chose Stewby's because it was rated #1 in FWB by Trip Advisor. It is about three or four miles away from the Gulf and Hwy. 98. We pulled into the last available parking space. That's always a good sign. There's no ambience inside, just wood floors, wooden picnic tables and benches and a tin roof. The food is very... More

Saw some reviews and they were good- it was close to our hotel so we thought we would give it a try for lunch. First off- it is obviously a very popular lunch place so plan accordingly. You order at the window- the menu is what you might expect at a seafood restaurant- where it is order at the window,... More
