“Bad food, Great view”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2007

We just returned from Destin, June 2007. I had read the reviews of Deweys and thought it sounded great. It wasn't. Half of our group threw most of their food away. Even the fried shrimp was not good. The view was great, so maybe go there for a beer. It was too crowded to even try and complain-so we just left and will not return!

“awesome!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2007

We have been going to Destin every summer for years, but did not discover this until a couple of years ago. It is a local favorite.
The scenery is great and the food is wonderful! A must for any seafood lover who also likes to take in some local flavor!!!!

“We loved it! Great seafood!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2007

I'm glad we read the review about driving down the beaten path that looked run down but at the end was great seafood. Dewey's also closes promptly at 8pm and turned away people. The restaurant is on a dock, you wait in line and order and your food will be brought out in 30-40 minutes on a busy evening. We ate fried shrimp(lightly breaded very good) Captians Platter(fried shrimp, oysters, fish) my teens loved it. Royal Reds(grilled deep sea shrimp tastes like Lobster) excellent, and steamed crab(excellent). We started with the crab dip(ok). Service good, laid back, excellent!

“A hidden jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2007

Just got back from Destin with my daughter and granddaughters. Dewey Destin's was recommended by a local and we ended up eating lunch there twice during our stay. Hard to find but worth it. The kids loved eating on the pier. No need to dress up, just delicious, fresh seafood. Highly recommend the crab dip and shrimp salad.

“casual atmosphere, excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2007

Our family vacations at Destin in June every year. The first place we go to eat is Dewey Destins. In fact, that is the main subject we talk about on the way down...what we are going to order! It is all great! DO NOT dress up! It is ultra-casual and we love it.
