This was our first visit to Dewey's on the bay....we were warned that it was kind of "dumpy" but the food was good. The drive in to the place was ...odd, but fun. When we arrived we all took a deep breath because it looked like a ramshackle old dump...but we went in anyway...since we had never been there before... More

My wife Barb and I enjoyed a comfortable dinner of stuffed shrimp, fry's and a 30A beer. Although the drive in was laughable, we knew what we were driving into. If you want view of the sunset and you are with good company, your visit will be fun. We had a nice chat with Cameron, the daughter of Dewey Dustin.

Great place to eat and watch the bay. Went just after 1 pm crowd was starting to move out. Boiled shrimp and stuff bacon wrapped shrimp were both good. You sit on the pier saw two dolphins swimming within few feet of us.

We have enjoyed dinner at this restaurant for many years. As such I now believe it can be good or bad depending on what you order. My wife always orders the Grouper. Probably the best choice on the menu. I like to try different items. This last trip I ordered the crab cakes. Bad choice. The cakes were over cooked,... More

For casual outdoor dining with the same high priced as sir diwn Destin restaurants, Dewey's is your place. Generous and tasty fresh seafood and sides. Recommend the shrimp.and Amberjack, for sure.

So many other great restaurants in area. Food was awful, place dirty and worn looking and service was fair. One star for roasted potatoes.

We traveled to Destin with our dog and were especially interested in dog friendly dining. Dogs are welcome in the shady courtyard. That offered a very pleasing spot for our meal, though it does not have the harbor view the restaurant offers in other areas. Dewey Destins was recommended highly by the owner of our rental unit. I had the... More

This place is great. Doesn't try to be something it's not. This is an old school seafood place on the beach. We had crab claws ... some of the best ever. Fried shrimp. Again, some of the best I've ever had. Blackened grouper. Also great. Cannot go wrong here. We have been here many many times and will continue returning.... More
