This place is great. Doesn't try to be something it's not. This is an old school seafood place on the beach. We had crab claws ... some of the best ever. Fried shrimp. Again, some of the best I've ever had. Blackened grouper. Also great. Cannot go wrong here. We have been here many many times and will continue returning.... More

This is the place that I recommend to tourists who just want good traditionally prepared seafood. You get to choose your fish, then whether you want it blackened, grilled or fried. I've never had a bad experience here.

There were some fish, wildlife, and dolphins to watch while waiting for your food! The fish, shrimp, and seafood are always fresh and hot, with some of the best hushpuppies l have ever eaten. There a tables on a patio with plastic windows, when cold or rainy, and picnic tables with umbrellas outside.

I love having lunch at the "Old Dewey's" and take all of my out of town visitors here. Eating on the pier is fun but the grilled fish is even better. Catch of the day is always a great choice, as well as the crab cakes. Best crab cakes I've had in Destin for sure. Great view of Crab Island... More

Arrived on a beautiful sunny "Destin" day, and immediately knew we wanted to sit outside on the harbor for lunch. Decided to try a discover a new eating place over our "standards". Half way out to Henderson beach, we turned around as traffic was absurdly backed up due to black Friday shoppers. We had heard about "Dewey Destin's" and liked... More

I recommend fresh seafood bronzed. Bronzed is a special butter braized thing the chef does. Veggie of the day was grilled asparagus... perfection, even my hubby liked it.

Dewey's is fabulous and consistent. I love the broiled stuffed shrimp and red skinned potatoes. The steamed seafood is just as fabulous!
