In our four-day stay in the area, we went to Stewby's twice for lunch. The shrimp and mahi mahi sandwiches were excellent and SO-O-O-O much better than the touristy places along the beach that we visited. We went there because of the TripAdvisor reviews and we highly recommend it if you're anyplace in the area.

The fried shrimp and oysters and esp. the amberjack sandwich. We went out of our way twice to get away from the tourist spots and pig out on the real stuff.

Every time I eat here I get homesick; I'm from New Orleans and this is what seafood is supposed to taste like, the restaurant is just like home. I work across the street from them so I would rather eat this kind of food compared to fast food any day!!!!

We stopped by for lunch one day, based on TripAdvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed! Lunch for my husband, myself, and our 5 kids was $78--definitely a good chunk of change, but this covered meals and drinks for everyone plus a large seafood platter for the table (the fried oysters were heavenly!). Everything was spotlessly clean and my children... More

Went to Ft. Walton Beach for the day and found this little gem of a place for lunch. Simple, clean, friendly and very good seafood. I had the fried shrimp while the other 3 ladies had the fish and shrimp tacos and gumbo. We all loved the food and the shanty!

Everywhere was packed for dinner our last night at FWB. We googled Stewby's and drove a little out from town but it was worth the trip. I had fried shrimp-delicious! My friend had the grilled wahoo which she said was some of the best she had ever had. The atmosphere is more than casual with outside picnic are on a... More

My wife and I recently spent a few days away from Tallahassee, in Ft Walton Beach, for some relaxation(oh and our13th anniversary!) Stewby's was top rated by Trip Advisor, and we like seafood, so, we went there. It is an order at the window and pick up your food place with seating available. My ma-hi sandwich was fantastic, and my... More

Visited several times. I realize the Samwich is a tribute to the owner's dad and i honor that. Having said that, when I eat fried shrimp or oysters, I want to experience the crunch. Cole slaw is a soggy wet dish and when you put that on a sandwich it makes the shrimp/oysters soggy before you can eat half of... More

I have just recently tried Stewby's and went back 2 days later because the food was so good. It looks like a little shack but it is extremely clean. Food is great and very reasonable!
