Came to Stewman's after a long drive up from NYC. Delicious chowder, fresh oysters, cold beer and the sunset on the harbor. Can't ask for much more!

Fun for a traditional Maine meal -- and it is right on the ocean. The prices are a bit high, but it is worth it and there is something for everyone on the menu. Love the views.

Came here for a lunch on the outside deck on a cloudy day. Unfortunately a sudden shower appeared but the servers expertly ushered everyone & their food inside. Everything went great and not a French fry got soggy,

This is where to get a whole Maine lobster dinner. The whole lobster comes with an ear of corn, mussels, and potatoes, called the "Lobster Experience." Although everyone seems to have opinions about what part of the lobster is best, I found the tail to...More
