Description: STEWBY'S Seafood Shanty is a small take out and drive thru seafood restaurant in Fort Walton Beach. Offering the most affordable and freshest local seafood. You can eat on our enclosed heated and cooled deck or take it to-go. All our seafood is fresh and locally bought. The fish comes straight of the boats in Destin. Average order time is between 7-9 minutes. So if your in a hurry, don't worry. We'll have you on your way in minutes. STEWBY'S also offers a drive thru window for your convenience. But don't let the drive thru fool you. You don't have to sacrifice quality for convenience. Drive thru and take some to go or stop in and order from the walk up window. STEWBY'S is always providing the best quality seafood at the best price!

On vacation and searching for reasonably priced seafood. We found it at this spot and it was delicious. We had to bring some back to hotel. After pulling up, We thought it was a takeout spot but noticed a few cozy like picnic tables. It was nice to sit and enjoy the breeze. Will definitely visit again when in Fort Walton.

Stewby's is on the south side of Racetrack Road which connects Eglin Parkway to Beal Parkway. The restaurant is local and looks it - it's not big on decor and its not fancy. You go to a window to place your order and there are outside tables to sit at. There is no view other than cars going by on Racetrack Road and don't expect to see the beach as that's about five miles away. However, Stewby's has pretty good quick-basket seafood. Nothing formal and not a "special" sit-down place to go. Locals stop by for a quick basket of shrimp or fish and a most of it is fried. The baskets of seafood are pretty good but portions are a bit smaller than expected. We stop by Stewby's for a quick bite now and then but it's not a "going out" or "vacation spot" to visit. They have the usual fish & shrimp dishes and it comes with coleslaw & two hushpuppies. Nothing fancy - more like a quick food place serving seafood.

Stewby's is one of the best and least expensive places to eat in town and it's mostly visited by locals. Food is fresh and cooked very fast...you will enjoy it !!!

We took our family there based on the reviews, but, driving up, were a little skeptical. It is a window-service, outdoor-seating-only, locals stop, for sure. But, it lived up to the review hype. My seafood "connoisseur" husband loved his grilled shrimp - fresh, perfectly cooked and well-seasoned. Best grits I have EVER had at a restaurant, hands down! And...best of all...the food came out so fast, our 2-year old never had time to have a meltdown! It was worth each of the very few pennies we paid - and more.

My hubby and I visited this place twice while on vacation and I wish we would have gone more than we did. Food is very affordable and is the freshest seafood we had while on our vacation. We went to Dewey Destin's one night and paid more than twice what we paid here and got mediocre food at best. Love Stewby's!!!
