Best seafood around!

Stewbys is an awesome seafood restaurant. They have the best grilled shrimp and shrimp tacos. The food is so fresh and delicious. We go everytime we visit Ft Walton. If you are staying at the beach this is worth the trip off the beaten path. The staff is awesome too!

Met family for dinner while my daughter and I were visiting from out of town here recently. Still loves Stewby's and we eat here at least once every trip we make down to Fort Walton Beach (3-4 times annually). Food is good, prices are reasonable, the potato salad is to die for! - and they had the softshell crab dinner... More

Group of 3 couples on vacation, stopped in here for a quick dinner. Great fried seafood at a very decent price. Would eat here daily if I could.

Our family of six ate here on a quick family vacation to the beach. It's a little far from the beach but we felt it was worth the drive. The fish of the day was excellent fried and grilled (we got it both ways and shared). It tasted very fresh. The sides were great, especially the fried onions, though they... More

We have come to really appreciate Trip Advisor reviews for finding the best local food and this one is right at the top! We have been in Ft Walton 5 nights and eaten here twice! It is a unique experience where they tell you they are not fast food, but great food served fast. They aren't telling a lie! The... More

Tripadvisor highly recommended Stewby's, so we drove across town to eat one night. The food was well worth the drive! After reading the reviews, we made sure we arrived in the early evening. There was no line...just a steady stream of people coming and going. This seafood has a special flavor that i cannot quite described, but we both loved... More

My fellow trip advisor peeps, you did it again! We went here because this restaurant was #1 in Fort Walton. It deserves it. If you want great seafood at an affordable price, this is the place. My husband and I are there for under $25. We got the grilled amberjack & 2 sides each. But if u are looking for... More

Visit local when traveling it provides the best experiences. This one did. You walk up to the window order your food and take a seat. Your name is called once your food is ready. This isn't fast food, it's made to order. I got the platter. Calamari, shrimp, and the fish of the day with two sides for $16. My... More

I like the fried mullet. Their gumbo is really good. I think it is best to call your order in to take to go. There is usually a really long line during lunch and dinner time. The drive thru takes forever because people order at the window instead of calling ahead. I guess this is kind of a good thing... More
