Love the outdoor seating directly across from the beach. Seafood is sweet and tender. Chowder is everyone's favorite. Kind of on the high price side but very tasty.

Great seafood. Their food is always fresh and the staff is very nice too. They sell all kind of seafood to eat there or just take outs too.

I have been here numerous times and I am always completely satisfied with my food. Prices have gone up since last year, but still a good price for the amount of food given

Best place for seafood and great prices, you won't be disappointed.. there are no other seafood places around anymore with good food and great prices. The view you see is the ocean love to sit on the patio during the summer with the great view.

While fried seafood is not my favorite, I'm always game for Stowes. Also has amazing stuffed sole, shrimp, and clams. Just remember to bring cash, no credit cards accepted. You won't be disappointed.

The seafood quality was great as well as the portion size. We had fried clams, scallops and the fish sandwich with some onion rings and fries on the side. The fish sandwich portion was huge - two large pieces of fish. Nice breading, good tasting moist fish. I didn't try the clams or scallops but the people who did were... More
