Love this place. Eat here on every trip to the area. We visit here twice a year and this is always one of our places to eat. Usually eat here twice per visit! Never disappointed! HIGHLY recommend this if you are in this area.

This place is awesome, nothing fancy but food is fresh and delicious. Service is great and water front views are beautiful. Feed the fish and jellyfish.

Best seafood in Destin! I like the smaller of the two Deweys but they are both amazing! The large one is better equipped to handle large groups and the smaller one sits on a pier and you have to stand in line. But well worth the wait.

Went on a Saturday night and were immediately seated. It was busy but many tourist are gone in October. Our waiter was wonderful and very accommodating as we wanted to substitute some things. Husband ordered grilled redfish and a fried soft-shell crab and loved it. I ordered fried oysters, shrimp and substituted scallops for the fish for a slight up-charge.It... More

For Mahi, the fish was very strong. The food was nothing exceptional, not seasoned and pretty tasteless. The crab claws were very good and wish I had stopped there. Our waitress was excellent and very knowledgeable of the food. Doubt very much that we would go back...
