Busy place, but don't be scared by the wait time quoted. While our large party had to wait a bit, it wasn't the 1 hour time that the hostess suggested it would be. The food portions are large - specifically the crab claw appetizers were very generous. All the food was hot and tasted very good.

We love Dewey Destin! Our waiter's name was Smoke and he was very attentive and answered all the questions that our kids had. The kids meals come in a Frisbee so the kids loved having a souvenir to take home. The crab cakes are amazing here!

I wish I could’ve eaten here several more times on our vacation! It seemed crowded when we arrived and we were a party of 8 so I was prepared for a lengthy wait but within 5 minutes we were seated at a great table outside overlooking the harbor. Our waitress was wonderful and the food was excellent! My husband got the catch of the day which was grouper and our waitress recommended he get it bronzed. He said it was the best grouper he’s ever had and will definitely get it that way again. All of our dishes were prepared as requested and it was a very relaxing and delicious experience! My new favorite place to eat in Destin!

Dewey Destins has two locations - this one is on 98 near all the other harbor view restaurants. It is a full service sit down restaurant with great atmosphere you can dress up for.

The other location is a self service shack on the bay with picnic tables, many of them in the sun. Although that one gets rave reviews too, we much prefer the larger location.

It was the best value and quality for the favorite entrees you expect to have at the beach. You can get anything you want for a more reasonable price than other full service restaurants in the area.

Slaw comes with every meal. So when you don't see it as a side option, don't fret. It's automatic.

If you like a soft shell crab sandwich, there is no place even close to Dewey's for the price, portion and taste. It's $12.95 for a monster so big you can hardly put it in your mouth.

We stopped in for lunch and even though it was 90 outside we decided to try the patio. We were pleasantly surprised how nice it was. The cool breeze coming in from the harbor was perfect. We got to watch all the boats coming in and out and the food was good. We had the Shrimp Sandwich and Cheeseburger and Grilled Tuna Sandwich. All were very good and lots of flavor.. Loved watching the boats as we ate...
