I have to eat here at least once (usually more) when I'm in the area. Fairly priced seafood. Can't wait to go back.

I ordered fried shrimp, fries, and coleslaw and it was oh so good!! It was pretty crowded and I was afraid we wouldn't find seats, but we did! Nice friendly atmosphere.

We spend a month on the beach every year. We eat at Stewby’s at least twice a week! It never disappoints. The most consistent quality and best prices in FTW. Now you have to be willing to drive 15 minutes but it’s worth it!

The best seafood I've had around the Destin /Ft Walton area! Cheap too, the only complaint was there isn't much room for dining in. Will definitely be back!

No complaints!!! The food was delicious! We went back several times on the same trip. We tried different items and they were ALL delicious. What you get for the price can't be beat.

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
