about as casual as you can get which we liked! there are two locations, we ate at the little one on Calhoun St. We drove by the evening before and it was jamb packed so we waited to have lunch the next afternoon. We got there around 2;30pm which was in time for the lunch special and no crowd. I... More

This is a diner style eatery at best. Open air, small seating area, no servers. WITH THAT SAID, I'd totally go here again. This is where the locals eat when they want good seafood. The grilled grouper, mahi mahi and shrimp were some of the best we've had. I love that I saw the kitchen staff using recipes to make... More

We staying in Destin and heard of Dewey Destins Seafood and had to try it. I highly recommend the stuffed bacon wrapped shrimp. It is very good. I was told the crab cakes are special also. Prices there are reasonable and about what you would expect for a resort area. I will definitely eat there again.

Excellent food, historic restaurant overlooking Yacht Club. Great waitstaff who really can recommend the best dishes. Catch of the day, chowder, and key lime pie not to miss.

I had read reviews, some very good and others not so much. My wife and I felt "not so much" and that was disappointing. The patio and exterior waiting area was very comfortable and interesting. I purchased a Dewey lemonade, set it on the wrought iron table and carefully balanced it on what I thought was a smooth and level... More

I thought we had made a serious mistake when we wound down an alley to a ramshackle place on the water with rough picnic tables and tattered awnings on a little dock. But this tiny place has the best seafood! I had crab cakes, my wife had fried shrimp, and they both were great. And the sweetest hush puppies with... More

The service was good and the food was also good. Bad News: they ran out of lobster so four of us had to order something else. It was early in the evening so we felt like there should have been more Lobster available. Good News our waiter brought us crab and tuna dip - complimentary. The crab dip was to... More

Eat like a local and love it. This restaurant is tucked away on the bay side. If you can find it you will love it.

I kinda felt like I was fooled about how much $$ everything costs. 100$ tab for 2 adults and 2 kids for lunch??? It was all wonderful food. But??? 100$$?? Good atmosphere. Get to watch all the tourists flitter around from the great deck.

Being from New Orleans, I realize just how spoiled we are to have such an abundance of fresh sea food. After reading the reviews for Deweys we were sure we were in for a treat. How ever we were so disappointed that all the seafood as well as the fries on our seafood platter was frozen and unseasoned. The fish... More
