Based off an old family restaurant called Sam’s Oyster House, STEWBY’S Seafood Shanty is a small take-out and dine-in seafood restaurant in Fort Walton Beach. STEWBY’S offers the most affordable and freshest local seafood available. Featuring everything that made Sam’s great including Sam’s gumbo and signature sandwiches with coleslaw and tater sauce on a sesame seed bun. All the fried and grilled items are prepared just as Sam did.
All the seafood is fresh and locally bought. The fish come straight from the docks in Destin and other neighboring counties. The oysters are always fresh shucked from Bon Secour Fisheries in Alabama with an occasional supply from Apalachicola Florida. The shrimp are also from Bon Secour and when available right here from our very own Choctawhatchee bay.
Eat on the heated and cooled enclosed deck or take it to-go. Stewby’s even has a drive thru for convenience. However we are not fast food, but quick service eating. Drive thru times average between 6-8 minutes but don’t be disappointed when we are extremely busy and it takes 10 minutes. It’s first come, first serve! Call-in orders are accepted but not during busy rush hours.

Although there is no “right way” to make Gumbo, we like to think ours is up there with the very best. Hailing from Louisiana, we have taken it in and made it Stewby’s own. Our signature fresh seafood makes our gumbo finger licking good. Along with fresh seafood, you’ll also find gumbo staples such as celery, bell peppers, onions and of course rice. Get a cup or a bowl and eat as much as you can and just take the rest to go.
We have the Best Gumbo in Fort Walton Beach!
