This is a must do every time I’m in Destin. You don’t get better quality seafood than you do at Dewey Destin’s. The crab dip is life changing.

Dewey Destin's never disappoints! I visit every time I am in Destin and the seafood is always fast, fresh and reasonably priced. The staff is vey friendly too. It's a "no frills" place that's right on the water and the view is beautiful! Highly recommend!!

It's a tight squeeze and getting from parking lot can be a little bumpy and sandy. I would recommend calling the location to check for ramps, etc. as I don't recall.
