Food was great but not enough seating inside for the price of the food. You order your food at the counter then pick it up when ready.

I moved here to the area years ago before this establishment opened. After opening, my wife and I visited. It seems that over the past few years, the food and service you get continues to be nothing short of OUTSTANDING. Fresh not frozen, great tasting food at a decent price.

Family style restaurant with fresh seafood and great prices. They don't serve alcohol in case you wonder. Everything is made fresh but the wait is not bad, even with big crowds.

We eat here all the time. We love it! Generous portions, sides to choose from, not just french fries and coleslaw. Never had a bad meal.

It was so good we went back the next day! The first time we both had the grilled mahi and LOVED IT, especially the seasoning! It was fantastic. Even the potato salad had great seasoning and bacon and was delicious. The next time I had the soft shell crab dinner. I had not seen this on any other local restaurant... More

Not on the beach but worth the drive over. Get the grilled zucchini and grilled cabbage. Hush puppies are delish. We tried shrimp, oysters and mullet. All very good!

We are new residents to Fort Walton Beach FL. We tried Stewby's today based on reviews by TripAdvisors. The food is the best thing they have going for them. Everything we ordered was terrific. The place, itself, gives off that hole in the wall atmosphere. (we know a lot of the times that's where you find the best food) So... More

With all the great review of this place I thought for sure I need to try this joint... when I got there I found out that they don't accept Amex plus their card machine was broken so they were only taking cash..... boo. Needless to say I did not get to try their food.

Real rating is 4 1/2 Stars. Read the reviews and decided to try it out. Smaller than I thought it might be. That's the only real negative. Though it wasn't crowded I could see how it could be in the busy season. The staff was really nice and helpful. Made some suggestions of specials that sounded really yummy. The grilled... More
