Dewey Destin’s Harborside has been an integral part of serving fresh seafood in Destin since the early 1800s.

Seafood Served Right at Dewey Destin

While there are plenty of seafood restaurants in Destin, Dewey Destin’s sets itself apart from the rest because of its dedication to quality. To ensure the best taste, seafood has to be prepared at exactly the right temperature or it will end up as chewy and rubbery. Dewey Destin’s avoids the use of warming lamps that many eateries use to keep food warm, as these lamps tend to overcook seafood. Thus, all dishes are made fresh and served when the food is ready—none of that food sitting around business. This dedication to preparing seafood served right oftentimes results in patrons receiving some parts of their meal before others. While this may differ from the way other restaurants operate, Dewey Destin’s maintains a consistent following of loyal customers that continue to return because the food is prepared properly.
