It had great reviews but I thought it was mediocre at best. They got my wife’s order wrong. They corrected right away. I got the fried platter. Portions were good but a couple of things were undercooked. I drove a fair distance out of my...More

Absolutely stop into Stewby’s if you love fresh and delicious seafood but come early or plan on a wait because it’s a locals hot spot and tourists are learning about it as well! The restaurant does have a drive through but this is not fast...More

On a recent vacation to Destin, my family and I had dinner at Stewbys. From the outside, the place didn’t look like much, but don’t let that fool you. The food was great. Will definitely go back the next time we are in Florida.

We love the Destin area and usually go to Dewey Destin’s at Crab Island. We love the small, casual unassuming seafood restaurants. Stewby’s seemed similar to Dewey Destin’s so we decided to try it based on the reviews. It was excellent! One thing we liked...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
