I had the grilled snapper and it was very good. The restaurant was crowded but our server was prompt and attentive. I wanted to return but I'll have to wait until the next trip.

Have eaten at the old location every time we come to Destin, but tried the new location "harbor side" this time. It was great. Definitely had more room, and the selection was much more than expected. Ate bronzed scallops and they were great! Will visit this place again.

We ended up here accidentally while searching for the other Dewey's. We were seated at the far corner overlooking the docks and it couldn't have been more perfect spot. Our waiter was prompt and friendly. The food was very good.

Dewey destin is a place we visit every time we are in Destin! The food is amazing and so fresh! The hush puppies are the best I've had. The grouper I ordered was caught fresh that day. I love hearing that! The atmosphere is wonderful out on the patio which is beautifully decorated. It's often a wait during peak season... More

We came up for lunch mainly because my daughter likes to see the boats. Dewey Destin's didn't disappoint for a view. The food was so-so. Just average, in my opinion. The service was excellent though. The one stand out was the hush puppies! I wish I had them right now! Hit or miss, I'd say.

We order the seared grouper with with shrimp and artichoke. It was seasoned well and cooked to perfection. I could go for another one right now. Service was a little slow but still great. Also parking can be hard to come by if they are really busy.

I must visit at least once every year during our October vacation. Best grilled shrimp in Destin, I definitely recommend this place to everyone who loves good sea food! Bartender at Mcguires recommended Dewey Destin to our group about ten years ago, and I absolutely have to eat there at least once each year.

Loved this place! Having never vacationed in Destin before, we were unsure where to eat. Several locals, along with several vacationers, suggested Dewey Destin, so we gave it a shot. It was great!!! We were seated within 10 minutes, which is impressive on a Saturday evening, and got a table outside overlooking the harbor. We ordered the crab dip appetizer... More

We had eaten at the other location and wanted to try this one. Great cocktails, especially the mojitos. Loved the hush puppies. My fish...dry and over cooked, disappointing. They do move a lot of people through quickly.

Fast friendly service. Fresh caught seafood and can even bring your own fresh catch. Will be back next time we're in town!
