Food was both affordable and very good. Excellent place to take a family and not break the bank. I had the fish of the day dinner with Amber jack and lived it. Grits were great gumbo was great beans were to die for.

Uh. Where has this place been? I've been visiting my friend in FWB for years and had never made it here. Drive-through seafood is a funny idea in my mind but the results were excellent! Great prices and even better food! I loved it. Gonna have to make this a regular stop when I'm in town!

Stewby's serves good food, a variety of fish and other items for non seafood people in your party. Local favorite, not fancy, but what we ordered was very good. Service was friendly and fast. They have a selection of the day as well as standards. Give them a try.

If you're looking for fresh, local seafood at a reasonable price, this is the place to go. It is NOT fast-food, everything is made to order so it will take a little longer, but it's worth it. Expect a wait during normal dinner time, because there will be a line. This is about the only local place waiting in line... More

Met friends there for an early supper. They recommended Stewby's as being one of their favorite dining places. We found the food to be very good and prices very reasonable. This is the type of place where you stand in line to order then when they call your number, you pick your food up and either carry out or dine... More

Fried seafood of all types including fresh oysters, grouper, snapper and mahi. GUMBOlicious with great prices in a casual, flip flop atmosphere plus a drive thru. Both my family and my office staff love this place.

This place has now become number one for us in this area for great fish. It's casual. . .not a fine dining experience. But oh my goodness! The fried oysters were big, juicy, flavorful and with a nice crunch. The fried amberjack was tender and perfectly prepared. The hush puppies are some of the best we've had; we believe they... More
