Not fancy but great Shrimp. Great view out over the water. Not for a windy rainy day! Most dinning is out in the open on well used wooden tables.

Got into Destin and immediately headed to Dewey's for a late lunch before heading to our hotel. Arrived at 2:45 and found out they close at 3pm. Bummer, but they did not rush us; took our order (oyster sandwich and soft shell crab sandwich) and they delivered them with a smile. Enjoyed our delicious lunch while overlooking the water without... More

We were not satisfied with the service or the food. There were six in our party, and out of all six only my daughter was glad we came. May have been just an off night because all the folks we ask at the Emerald Grand recommended it as the best in Destin.

The food was good and the view even better. I only gave this 3 stars because the food was average compared to other restaurants. The view is good, you can watch boats and people. I will try again and see if my experience would be better had I gone for dinner.

It has been several years since we visited, but the food continues to be great. This is a casual seafood restaurant. The wait staff if friendly and efficient. Ask for the luncheon menu, if you don't want to take anything home. I had the fish basket/plate and my wife had the shrimp. Both were excellent. We returned a few days... More

Food was awesome for the price! We enjoyed the outdoor deck, it felt like summer. The bartender was personable & even took a recipe from us. The food was just delicious!

Best restaurant in Destin. We go to Destin for a week every summer. The seafood here is so good we go more than one time. After eating we go to HarborWalk which is right behind Dewey Destin.

I have been coming to Dewey Destin's for several years now and it is great every time. Have always liked the original location and never been to the new one. Great local hot spot. I can pull the boat right up to their dock and eat with the family. Very close to crab island and also a great place to... More
