Three of us had an early lunch here. We each had something entirely different and enjoyed it. It's very informal with a crowd most of the time. They offer sandwiches and salads as well as appetizers.

Love the food with great dock side dining you can get there by boat or car. We just pulled our pontoon right up to the dock.

We are local and whenever company is in town, this is a required stop for lunch as it is uniquely Destin. Great views of the bay, the service and food are amazing. Come by boat, kayak, or car.

Go ahead and get in the line. It moves fast and the food is delicious. Fried shrimp is the best. Scallops are good and always a favorite. Get it fried, always!

If you could only pick one place for seafood while in Destin, Dewey Destin's should be on your short list. Whether you prefer your seafood baked or fried, they can do it there. I ordered the Captain's Platter and my wife had the Shrimp Boil....More
