We have been going to this restaurant for the last four years when we come to Florida for our annual family vacation! It's an absolute must for us at least twice. We have tried many restaurants in Destin and end up unsatisfied with them. We can't say enough good things about Dewey Destins and our experience .

We have eaten at this restaurant several times in the past few years. I had received a $10.00 coupon and a group of us went there for lunch. The food was very good. I had a grouper sandwich that was excellent. My disappointment isn't with the food. It is with our server. She was rude and demanding. I also don't... More

We checked out Dewey'a after reading the great reviews on trip advisor and I like the fact that it is owned by Mr. Destin, whose grandfather started the town. It is a very laid-back, casual however the prices we felt were rather high for the atmosphere. He ordered a Caesar salad with grilled shrimp a top and my goodness it... More

First I should state that I am a "local" and have lived in this area for 14 years. There are actually two Dewey Destins, one on US 98 and the other on the bay off of Calhoun Ave. The one on the bay is the original and I highly recommend it. Don't be turned off by the horrible road to... More

If you look at the picture of this place after driving in a rough Lane, you may turn around and head out. Don't!!! This place is a total winner based solely on the incredible fresh catch fish. When you look at the menu on the wall, you'll find the fresh catches of the day including some fish you won't find... More

Ate at both locations. We love both for the fresh seafood. We splurged yesterday at the Crab Island location... fried everything... it was perfection (but other preparations equally as good) The Soft shell crabs were a dream come true!!.. truly soft shell.. not the ones they are crunchy.. or the ones with the backs still on them that haven't really...

Fresh food and great view. Best place on the water with mouth watering fried shrimp and great staff. I had the pecan crusted Snapper, the catch of the day, per our waitresses suggestion, and it was great! This place is absolutely amazing!

We love the food and view. I will be back. I had the Mates platter and the hubby had the fish of the day we were not disappointed! The crab dip appetizer was awesome.
