Overall a good meal but not as good as expected. The atmosphere and environment was neat and rustic with a fishing pier feel (which it is) ... nothing fancy but nice views of the water at sunset. I tried the fried grouper and my wife had the fried shrimp basket. The portions were nice sized and the fish / shrimp were freshly cooked ... My biggest issue was the blandness of the breading on the fish and shrimp. A little Old Bay or some Zatarain’s spice cooked in would have made all the difference. Another plus was the cocktail sauce which tasted fresh and homemade.

Little pricey but balcony view is spectacular. Service was lacking, you could tell the server did not want to be there.

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!!

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend. We got a lovely table overlooking the harbor and were served by one of the loveliest waitresses I've ever met! Not only was she so helpful in recommending dishes but she was such a delightful character! The food was absolutely divine! We had the snow crab legs and triple tail which was suggested to be cooked 'bronzed'. You really must try it! Definitely worth the price and a fantastic selection of dishes, I cannot recommend this place enough!
