On vacation and searching for reasonably priced seafood. We found it at this spot and it was delicious. We had to bring some back to hotel. After pulling up, We thought it was a takeout spot but noticed a few cozy like picnic tables. It was nice to sit and enjoy the breeze. Will definitely visit again when in Fort... More

Stewby's is on the south side of Racetrack Road which connects Eglin Parkway to Beal Parkway. The restaurant is local and looks it - it's not big on decor and its not fancy. You go to a window to place your order and there are outside tables to sit at. There is no view other than cars going by on... More

Stewby's is one of the best and least expensive places to eat in town and it's mostly visited by locals. Food is fresh and cooked very fast...you will enjoy it !!!

We took our family there based on the reviews, but, driving up, were a little skeptical. It is a window-service, outdoor-seating-only, locals stop, for sure. But, it lived up to the review hype. My seafood "connoisseur" husband loved his grilled shrimp - fresh, perfectly cooked and well-seasoned. Best grits I have EVER had at a restaurant, hands down! And...best of... More

My hubby and I visited this place twice while on vacation and I wish we would have gone more than we did. Food is very affordable and is the freshest seafood we had while on our vacation. We went to Dewey Destin's one night and paid more than twice what we paid here and got mediocre food at best. Love... More

Our family of 4 adults ate for 60 dollars. We had a variety of food. Grilled mahi-mahi, grilled shrimp, fried oysters, everything tasted fresh and delicious. Good value for the amount of food we ate. Dinners and sandwiches were half the price of what you would pay at other seafood restaurants. We learned from experience, it cost 2 of us... More

Visiting my daughter & son in law last weekend and had to go to Stewby's and to our delight, they were offering shark that was just caught off the Destin shoreline. Oh my, was that the most amazing tasting shark. I didn't even get the shark dinner. I had the scallops which were amazing also! I tasted the others in... More

Wish we had found this earlier in our tip, we would have gone more than once. Love the shrimp and grits and fried fish and shrimp combo. Hushpuppies are sweet with a peppery kick. Only complaints, if we had to come up with a complaint is no refills on small drinks and could have used a non fried option on... More

Once I discovered this place I fell in love! Fresh, local and done just right. This is real seafood done perfectly to showcase the fish and not hide it behind bad cooking, like the "tourist trap" restaurants do. I'll come back again and again every time I'm in the area!
