My grandsons love Dewey Destin. We try to stop by for lunch every visit to Destin. It is very casual and reasonable. If you like to eat outside sitting at picnic tables and eat on paper plates this is the place for you.

We tried based on family recommendations. Maybe we caught it on an off night but the staff was not as friendly as other places we have visited and food was sub par in comparison. We were seated back against the outside wall and the temp was hot and not a lot of air circulation. I expected more based on everything... More

If you can sit upstairs on the deck do so as there is a lovely view of the marina. The food was really excellent. We had a very nice side salad that really was big enough for two. The staff was great and food arrived quickly. Some of our party had crab cakes which they said was very good. Two... More

We ate here after a fishing charter on the advice of the captain. We brought 1lb of fish each, and they cook it however you want (fried, grilled, blackened, etc). It was very reasonably priced ($11.95) and included 2 sides per person. We got the fish fried and browned (seasoned) and it was very good. We realized we should have... More

We were in Destin for the week and ate at seafood places each night. We both agreed that this location was the best we had. My wife's fresh catch of Trigger would have been plenty enough to share and was very well cooked I the "bronzed" selection. I had the colossal portion shrimp dinner and found it very good but...

Dewey Destin has two locations one big one small, both serve similar menus and recipes. They have great everything! But if you enjoy fried shrimp platters, look no further than Deweys'. They offer huge butterflied local Gulf shrimp and they are cooked perfectly. They are not overly seasoned and they are not overly fried to death either. They are lightly... More

Recommended by a local resident, and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent from the time we entered the restaurant. We were greeted and explained the seating options including sitting on open deck overlooking the harbor. Server (U of K fan) was great. Husband had Mate's platter and I had steamed spice shrimp. Portions were generous, and food was excellent.... More

We had the Red Snapper "Catch of the Day". One cooked "blackened " and one cooked "bronzed" w/hush puppies, new potatoes and Cole Slaw. Excellent meal! We highly recommend this establishment for lunch and/or dinner.

We were on our 2nd vacation to Destin Florida. Sadly ignored our condo renters suggestions on local restaurants and attractions on our first trip so we missed out on our visit the year prior. This year heeded the advice and found a great view, good food and the most reasonable prices of any of the local seafood restaurants. Try their... More
