Description: STEWBY'S Seafood Shanty is a small take out and drive thru seafood...
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!

Stewby;s exceeded my expectations. Informal but very clean and organized. Order at the widow and than find a seat at picnic tables and wait for your number to be called. Located on the deck but enclosed and protected from the weather. Had grilled amberjack-excellent. Side dishes tasted homemade. Good food at reasonable prices. I would return without hesitation.

Reno was so amazing, we had a group of 20, special needs kids. We called and they held the table and were so pleasant. We will be back! Give Reno a raise!

It was crazy ok. Food served in plastic plates and styrofoam cups. Accidently put my finger the strongest thin walled large cup. Dine in 15 picnic tables inside t hat turn over quickly in this fast food seafood place. Fish is fresh servings are only fair. Scallops I think are 'shark bites' Watch out many are nowadays.

THis is a hidden treat with fantastic food. It is well priced and the menu is varied. It is a small, picnic table restaurant with quick service. However, getting a table may be difficult depending on the time of day. They do have take out and there soups are yummy. This is a casual place and a great place to... More

Drive off the beach for cheaper prices and the same quality. This was well worth the short trip. If this was Triple D it would take up the whole 30 minutes. Friendly staff, good prices and tasty food. Make sure if the smoked fish dip is on the specials menu you order that. It is a party of flavors in... More

This is simple local seafood. It is not a fancy tourist spot but good inexpensive seafood. We like to call in ahead, drive through and take it back to our condo on the beach. We travel from Texas to Okaloosa Island often and we always crave Stewby's upon each return!

I have been wanting to try this place because every time I drive by there is a line in front and the ratings have been pretty good. We went during a week day and ordered the fried shrimp dinner, the fried fish dinner and the fish tacos. The shrimp was delicious and fresh and they gave you a good sized... More
