Forget AJ's, Joe's Crab Shack, etc. If you want great tasting seafood, quality is important, awesome service and great prices, you have to go to Stewby's. You won't be disappointed and I can guarantee you will forget all those "other" seafood restaurants.

Inexcusable to be so highly ranked on trip advisor. This is a fast food fried fish restraunt. If you like this place try captain d's you will love that.

Our travel schedule dictated a Sunday afternoon visit, which may have been a mistake. We ordered two mullet specials with bbq beans, fried onions, okra, cheesy grits and hushpuppies. The mullet, which was not crispy fried, tasted "fishy" and our hushpuppies were gooey inside, but the other sides were piping hot and enjoyable. Stewby's failed to impress.

We were staying in Destin and thought twice about driving to Fort Walton Beach, but glad we did! The grilled Wahoo and fried shrimp were very good! The fried okra, hush puppy's, onion rings, and coleslaw were delicious.

Not sure what all the fuss is about, the food was average. Nothing special and a little expensive. You can get the same everywhere else however its a nice oasis in an unexpected part of town

I've been eating at Stewby's for over a year and it's definitely a lunchtime favorite. Great selection platters and tasty hush puppies. I love the grilled chicken platter and friends swear by the fish tacos. Not a place for a fancy meal (picnic tables inside), but you won't be disappointed with the food.

Stewbys is a place that you give your order then find a seatt on the rap a round porch. I love the casual dining with a large flat tv if your in the mood for that. The absolute best seafood grilled or fried we have ever found and its where the locals eat cause its the best. We have tried... More

This was our first trip to Fort Walton. Before going I researched places to eat and Stewby's kept coming up. We ended up eating there on our first night and it was excellent. I love fried oysters but can't get them where I live. I was not disappointed at all. This will definitely be somewhere we eat anytime we are... More

We visit Okaloosa Island about one a year. For more than 10 years, we have eaten our "seafood" dinner at the Crab Trap. This year, it seemed like the Crab Trap wasn't as good as it had been in year's past. It was like they didn't care as much as they used to. HOWEVER, thank goodness for Tripadvisor! We went... More
