Delicious food and great atmosphere! Minimal wait on a busy night. Hush puppies had jalapeños in them which was a great surprise! Large portions to all dishes! Easy walk out back steps to Harbor Walk! Definitely recommend!

Wonderful seafood, salt air and good wine! How can you go wrong with Dewey Destin's!! A coastal tradition, we prefer the original location, complete with umbrellas and seagulls. Always a great experience!
