We wanted fresh seafood without paying an arm and leg. Stewby's did not disappoint. We ordered grilled shrimp , chicken tacos and a fried platter. The food was fresh and the oysters melted in your mouth. So , so , so good !!!

Our second visit to FWB and second visit to Stewby’s. Not close to the beach, but well worth the short drive. Most customers seemed to be locals - lucky them! Everything was fresh, hot, and delicious. Super-casual atmosphere.

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
