Tried Stewby's first time a couple of weeks ago. Husband was tired of seafood, so he went with the chicken taco and really liked it. I got the fish tacos and loved them! Hushpuppies were very good also! You have to try this place!

Super busy but the wait wasn't that long considering the crowd. The food was incredible especially the fried okra. Well priced too.

Was in the area and went based on the reviews. It's a true shanty like restaurant. Small parking lot and small restaurant. It was really warm inside, only saw ceiling fans inside. They also have a drive thru but I didn't want to feel rushed so I went inside. Limited seating. Simple menu. I got the fried shrimp dinner special... More

My husband and I visited Stewby's one day for lunch, and went back the next day for dinner. We both had the grilled shrimp and it was perfectly done.

I LOOOOVE Stewby's. As a local, I can promise you, this is the BEST place to get fresh local seafood. Their menu is always different because it differs with the season and what was caught. Best Fish Tacos in the World!!!

My family of 10 make a special effort to include Stewby ' s as one of our must stops while in Destin/Ft Walton. It is not fancy, you walk up and order and retrieve your meal when it is ready. Then you grab a picnic table inside and enjoy. Very affordable fresh seafood.

Ordered seafood take out so can't really talk to the dining room service. We ordered multiple orders and all five of us were satisfied with the quality, taste and value. We ordered about 1/2 hour in advance and order was coming up as we arrived. Great timing.

Thank Robert H
