Great seafood for half the price. If you want seafood in a fast food environment this is the place. This is the place to visit if you want seafood and don't want to pay tourist prices. A popular place for locals.

We were visiting from out of town and came here based on others reviews and WOW!! We ordered the fish of the day and shrimp dinners, very fresh, large portions and extremely reasonable. The employees were also extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely a new favorite!!

I have always loved Stewby’s. They have great fish-of-the-day sandwiches and yummy coleslaw! Also the staff is always so nice.

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

What can I say, I’m still drooling just thinking about my meal. If you are near Fort Walton Beach and looking for a place to eat this is it. Nothing fancy just excellent service and delicious food. How good, my daughter who doesn’t eat fish...More

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
