If seafood is on your mind then Stewbys is your destinationit's seafood all the way..they have the freshest fish shrimp and oysters. With each platter you get to delicious hush puppies. The prices are reasonable and this restaurant presents a great value for your money. no beer or wine but that shouldn't stop you from coming.

Love this place. It is just good Gulf Coast seafood prepared beautifully. My favorite is the fried shrimp but the grilled is also good. The fried okra is just so tasty. I could sit and eat it like popcorn. This is seafood the way it used to be. Thanks so much for bringing back that taste of NW Florida. I... More

One objective for our stay in Destin is to check out great food. We went to Stewby's with no expectations and loved the food, people and atmosphere of the place. I had the fried oyster sandwich and my husband had the catch of the day (mahi mahi) grilled sandwich. They included fries smothered in their own wonderful seasoning salt. Plastic... More

No pomp, just fresh and simple seafood. Window order and pickup. Excellent fried and grilled fish. If you want something different, try the smoked fish dip.

Decided to try Stewby's for lunch while we were in Fort Walton Beach. Small seating area with clean new looking picnic tables. You may have to share your table with another patron. They offer grilled or fried seafood either as a dinner or sandwich. We found out later they had a special on the outside sign but not on the... More

Visiting family over the holidays and stopped at Stewby's for a bite to eat for lunch--seafood, of course, was on our minds. Very casual eating establishment--order your food at counter and pick up when name called--sit anywhere you want. I was so impressed with the blackened mahi mahi sandwich special (husband got the red snapper) which was made to order... More

The restaurant has the freshed seafood served fried up. The fish is fresh and you can tell when you taste it. The portions are plenty and you get what you paid for. My soft shelled crabs were the best I have had in a long time. It didn't matter the cost because there was still plenty of food. A lot... More

We were on the hunt for raw oysters, but by the time we found Stewby's we were ready to eat whatever, and their fried oysters really hit the spot. The place reminded me of old Waikiki where you could just walk up to a window, order what you wanted, then get the plate and go sit on wooden benches at... More

I eat here at least once a month, sometimes with friends and/or family and sometimes solo through the drive through. The food has always tasted great. Wait time is not too long as they cook to order. Sometimes though, the fish portion is pretty small. The included sides will still fill you up. Price is what you would pay at... More
