Stopped at Dewey Destin's for our lunch break while on our pontoon boat tour to Crab Island! Great location and laid back vibe. Had the hot crab dip and popcorn shrimp and both were tasty!

Best fried shrimp and fried oysters in Northwest Florida. They are so good, that I've never tried any of the other dishes and I've been there several times. I have tried their gumbo. Being from Louisiana, I'm used to a brown Roux-based gumbo. This gumbo...More
