We love Dewey's Destin Harborside and always make it one of the first places we go. Everything is good, but we especially like the soft shell crab, hush puppies, crabfingers, and gumbo. Don't expect atmosphere other than if you sit outside. It's enjoyable because you're on the harbor. We go strictly for the food. They don't take reservations and it's... More

As locals usually say, it's the little "hole in the wall" places that are best. Very casual, eat on a pier over the water. Be prepared to eat on picnic tables and enjoy the gulf breeze.

A shack of a restaurant but don't let that detour you. Seating is on the docks surrounding trailer. Everyone was pleasant and welcoming. The food is as authentic as you can get and fried yumminess.

This outdoor diner was a complete surprise. Have to drive down a terrible gravel road to get there, but once there, the restaurant is beautifully situated out over the water of the bay. The steamed seafood, esp. king crab legs, were very fresh and well seasoned. The fried shrimp were some of the best we've had. Very reasonably priced.

Love, love , love Dewey Destin!!!! Super casual, fabulous family dining. Great for kids! This is my kind of place- no frills, extra napkins on the table and a basic but full menu of fresh seafood. The gumbo is the best I have ever had. If they have Royal Reds- those are a must. If you are visiting Destin and... More

If u are looking for fresh gulf seafood, this is the spot. Cobia, snapper, and more prepared correctly. I had grill cobia. It was done right. Fried shrimp were great, too. Service was awesome. Prices were fair for portions and gulf fish. However, be prepared because plates range from $25 -30 each.

Thank Jbruhl
