First visit to this great little local restaurant, very casual. Everyone in our party ordered the Grill Fish Dinner with cheese grits, grilled veggies, cole slaw and onions. Friendly atmosphere, good size portions. We were impressed and will return next time we're in the area.

Located on Racetrack Road, Stewby’s serves quick and delicious seafood. My favorites are the grilled mahi with cheese grits and grilled zucchini, and the fried soft shelled crab sandwich. Everything served is delicious!

Went here based on reviews. It wasnt the best I've had but it was good. I loved the baked beans and shrimp. I could really taste the fresh seafood in the gumbo and the oysters were so fresh.Prices were decent and the staff was cordial.

We came here because of high reviews on TA, and we were not disappointed! I got the grilled seafood platter, and hubby got the fried one. Both were delicious, and we think the baked beans and fried okra are the best we’ve eaten anywhere! Definitely...More

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
