Dewey Destin Seafood

850.837.7575

202 Harbor Blvd.
Destin, FL 32541

9 Calhoun Avenue
Destin, FL 32541

The Destin family and Destin, Florida have been intertwined since Dewey’s great-great grandfather, Leonard Destin, founded the town in 1835. The adventure began a few years earlier when Leonard, his father George, and his brother William set out from New London, Connecticut with three ships and ran into a hurricane near Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Today the Destin family and friends, using original Destin and Gulf Coast recipes, are proud to serve seafood and other favorite area side dishes to local friends and out-of-town guests alike. While we maintain a casual atmosphere, we are serious about great-tasting food. Therefore Dewey makes it a practice not to use food-warming lamps which he feels turns quality fish into chewy and rubbery leftovers.

Only when the food is just right do we bring it to your table…which sometimes means that certain items may arrive before others are ready (especially when busy). Please relax, enjoy the view, the weather, the company of fellow diners and remember our promise as various portions of your order arrive:

Harbor Docks Restaurant

850.837.2506

Back in 1979, Harbor Docks was just a weather-beaten little cottage with six picnic tables, one bathroom, and an ancient dog named Raspberry who laid out on the porch all day thumping his tail at the folks who wandered up for a few ice cold beers and oysters on the half shell. Harbor Docks was nothing fancy back then, and things haven’t changed much.

Charles Morgan, the owner of Harbor Docks, has added on to the little cottage over the years. Now there are several sushi bars and the deck sprawls along the waterfront. Of course, Raspberry has gone on to his reward, and Charles has added a few more creature comforts…he put in air conditioning, paved the parking lot, and added valet parking, but the old picnic tables are still here and Harbor Docks is a long way from fancy. Our made-from-scratch food is honest and healthy.
