We always enjoy the fresh seafood at Stewby's. It's one of the few that serve local seafood. Fresh, quality and the prices are reasonable.

Our group of 6 went for dinner. The line was long but moved quickly. Seating is limited but we were able to find a table. We had swordfish (catch of the day) and shrimp. It’s a casual, local restaurant worth trying.

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
