Stopped here on our way back to the states. Nice clean place, polite and friendly staff. We had the ribs/shrimp and the stuffed chicken breast. We were expecting typical bar food but the food that came to the table was outstanding. We definitely recommend stopping in for good food in a friendly environment.

Good for a casual meal. Big screen tv and roadhouse type menu but food was good and the beer was cold, thats enough to satisfy me.

Nice location, good service, the place has not changed a lot over the years. Can be busy at times. Never have been disappointed, menu has something for everyone. Prefer it to Stokes Inland.

Stopped in for dinner mid-week with two other couples. Wasn't too satisfied with the food overall. It was a slow night and several of us did not think the meals were that good. Most of the dishes were overcooked. The service was average to slow considering the light crowd, but server was cordial. We all had different dishes - fish... More

Stokes by the Bay is a large bar/restaurant where you go with a large group of people to drink beer and eat standard bar food. There's nothing especially unique or interesting about this restaurant. I've never had anything either terrible or amazing here. The staff is good and it's well-run, but there's nothing more to this place than meets the... More

Good food. Menu was varied enough to please. Good beer selection. Good parking. Kids eat free Friday and Saturday 4-6. A little off of the main road so you have to look for it.
