It looks like a little hole in the wall. But don’t let looks fool you. This was great. The fish was awesome. Hush puppies to die for. And people are so nice. Can’t wait to go back.

We choose Stewby's because of the previous reviews, and the fact that it was off the beaten path. I am glad that we did, because it was well worth it!

Looking for something reasonable, fresh, and just plain delicious? Look no more! It was our first time but can honestly say he carries on the family tradition of quality and mouth watering good. We will be back because there is a whole menu to explore....More

A quaint little place known mostly to locals. Shrimp and fish bought daily and cooked only as ordered. Taste is incredible. Can't get any fresher and the price is very very reasonable. A great secret place just minutes from the beach.

Kudos to all the reviewers on TripAdvisor that pointed us to Stewby's. It is, hands down, the best seafood we've had in the area and we've been visiting Ft Walton Beach and Destin for many years. Excellent and affordable. We'll be back!

Love this place! Every time we come to Ft. Walton we come here. Excellent seafood! Sometimes we eat here at least three times during our stay.

Nice little local place. Great seafood menu but self-serve with paper plates, silverware. Very affordable. Would be good for families.

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
