Went to the original Dewey Destins and the grilled fish was excellent. Seemed to be quite a local spot with very fresh seafood. Mine was gluten free. I just asked what they could fix gf and the grouper was great.

I ordered the crab legs from the GF menu with the only available sides of half of an ear corn and new potatoes. Although it was a good amount of food, this meal was not good. I’m not sure if it wasn’t cooked well or if it was a bad batch of crab, but it did not taste good and neither did the sides (no seasoning, butter, flavor). My friend, non-celiac, ordered grilled shrimp with same sides and she said the same. Definitely not worth the money and did not taste good at all. We also both developed cramping, nausea, and upset stomach after this dinner. I would say both celiac and non celiac as should avoid all together. We had a great waitress which was the redeeming part of the night! Otherwise spend your money elsewhere! We ended up here because Boshamps had an hour and a half wait but thinking that would have been better than this!

READ WHOLE REVIEW: Best fresh fish in Destin! I had the braised snapper, one of the fresh catches of the day, best fish I’ve ever had! I had red potatoes and corn on the cob with it and a nice mixed drink- which they had a list of options on the gf menu. I’m celiac and no reactions... went back again several months later (here’s my update) , fish still amazing, potatoes and corn still same options unfortunately. So after trying Boshamps the next night, I’d say go there. Same price but more options and even better atmosphere and a more satisfying meal with fresh catch of the day very comparable!
Nice selection. Server knowledgeable and accommodating. Great view from the deck of the beach, marina and gulf.
Staff was friendly and they have a gf menu that was pretty extensive. I had the broiled grouper, sides weren’t that impressive which is why I gave 4 stars. My husband, not celiac, had an order of the bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with crab and said it was phenomenal. Great place to eat and outside is a very nice area to lounge around - nice and shaded.
Items listed on GF menu were not. Fries cooked in same oil as other food. Grill seasonings not GF. They were however careful with what they could provide. Would be better if they updated the menu.
Sooooo bummed. Made special trip for gluten free hush puppies. We were told after ordering they are NOT gf. Food was mediocre.
They had a gluten free menu but our waiter was not knowledgeable about the menu in general. He told me the vodka was not gluten free but the manager said it was. I am also dairy free and he couldn’t tell me what had dairy in it and wouldn’t swallow his pride to go ask someone who could. I think it would have been fine if we had a different server.
The staff gave me a gluten free menu, which it was limited but there were still some options. I ordered the Parmesan Maui Maui, with corn and French fries and had no reaction. I also ate their crab dip without the crackers and just a fork. I also had no reaction.
GF hush puppies... suspicious. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow. Decent menu selection and a manager brought me the food.
I informed the staff right when I got there that I have celiac and cannot have any gluten or I get extremely sick. The lady at the register wasn’t sure what i could have but went and grabbed someone who did! She suggested salads and anything steamed. Which is great because all I wanted was the steamed snow crab legs! I got spicy, assured they use a gluten free seasoning, and they were amazing! I did not get sick at all. Very happy with my experience there.
I ordered a lunch salad with grilled fish, from the waitress who had retrieved a gf menu at my request. It arrived, looking beautiful and I dug in to it. After a few bites I found that the fish was resting atop a bed of croutons! A single “sorry” was the only response, and I waited for my replacement dish as my companions dined. Beware of this place.
Awesome, caring staff!! Very knowledgeable and kind. The food is also incredible! However, I tested the cheese grits listed on the menu as GF on my Nima Sensor and they showed up as low gluten. But the Parmesan crusted grouper was safe and good!!
I got bronzed triple tail on a garden salad with balsamic dressing. My plate was served separate from the group with an "allergy" marker by a gloved server. I couldn't have felt more confident in their ability. I am more sensitive to cross-contamination than any one I know and anyone THEY know. My meal was tasty and I did not get sick. The gluten-free menu had other options with sauces that looked enticing. But this was my first experience...so I kept it simple. I would love to go back and try their other entrees and sides.
The food was really good. They had a GF menu and plenty to pick from. My meal came out on a separate serving platter than the others and was marked with an allergy stick for easy identification. And I didn't get the tiniest bit sick from the meal. I would definitely go back.
Good food, nice atmosphere, pretty big menu for gluten free. Would definitely go again.
Huge cross contamination issue here. They weren't sure what was gfree and what wasn't!
No GF menu but many choices that are most likely GF. Some of the best fish we ate here.
One of the best meals I had while in Destin. The staff is very knowledgeable. I'm highly sensitive to cross contamination...no problems!
My extended family was vacationing in Destin for the week. Of the 12 of us, 3 of us eat gluten-free (one diagnosed celiac; two in the process of being diagnosed). After having many sub-par meals, I am happy to say that we loved Dewey Destin's. They had a good sized gluten free menu, and the wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. We liked it so much that we ate here twice. The food quality, both gluten-free and "regular", got rave reviews across the board. The atmosphere was casual and we loved the harbor view.
