Have been disappointed at the amount of fried fish that passes for sea food here in this beautiful area. We were told about Dewey Destin by a local and it was outstanding. They have daily selections that are local, fresh and that's what we went for. I've never had 'scamp' (not scampi) to my knowledge and I had this grilled, it was scrumptious! Others had the red snapper (blackened) and also said it was excellent--I'll go back to test that for sure.
Our server was a bit terse I guess because showed up with 3 children, but the food and the views of the harbor more than compensated for his attitude.
Best thing I can say is we will go back this trip! Try it and experience some great local fresh sea food that is not fried.

Great hamburgers! The grouper was great too! Try the steak, yum. Great service. Right on the water. Lots of fun!

Had our fresh catch cooked here for group of 10. Fish were grilled (delicious), blackened (a little heavy on spices so overpowered fish), and fried (cornbread coating). Peel and eat shrimp good, hot crab dip was really, really heavy. Traditional sides were hush puppies (exceptional), fries (frozen), corn on the cob (frozen), new potatoes (fresh) and cole slaw. Not fancy food, but plentiful. Great service, wonderful view.

Unlike diamonds who hated it, we loved it. The wife and I were recommended to go there. It sits right on the harbor, we went at sunset and got to watch the sunset as we ate amazing and fresh seafood. I had the stuffed shrimp and the wife had fish. It was fresh, flavorful and more than enough for the price. You do have to place your order and get your own drinks but they bring you your food. It's casual and being from Texas we don't need anyone to cater our every need. We ate there twice during our anniversary trip and loved it. It's a hole in the wall kinda joint but has great food. Go at sunset and enjoy a couple of the reasons you even went to Destin. Great seafood and beautiful sunsets over the water.

We sat on the back porch and witnessed a great sunset. Food was between good and very good. We both had the shrimp and we had good service as well. We would probably go back but it is not worth a long wait.
