Probably the best place in West Haven for sea food. It is mostly takeout since there is virtually no seating. I love it there in the summer because there are ample picnic tables. I go every week in the summer. The stuffed sole is great!

The food is fresh with enough seasoning light batter, and not greasy. Will definitely continue to go to Stowe's Seafood. Small but, cozy spot in West Haven. My Boyfriend & I Love the Seafood.

For seafood to go, this is the place!. Or, when the weather permits, they even have tables outside, to stick around and enjoy. For the two of us, we commonly get one order of Fish and Chips, which is plenty. We've never been disappointed.

Life changing experience...maybe. I had heard that the Connecticut version of the lobster roll was hot and buttered and that sounded good enough to seek it out at the next opportunity. Boy was it! We were super impressed with the one at Stowe's Seafood. Instead of a bun they served it on a slice of Texas toast. Appropriate as the... More

This tiny restaurant/fish market has only 5 indoor tables and a bunch of seasonal picnic tables.Everything is good. Specialties are seafood chili, lobster bisque and 3 kinds of chowder--Manhattan, New England and Rhode Island. Lobster bisque is only $7.00 for a bowl.

Some of the best fried seafood we've had. Light batter, not greasy or salty. Really flavorful seafood. Portion sizes are generous but not oversized either. Only complaint is that the coleslaw was quite watery. Casual, low-key atmosphere.

Usually get it to go. Quick and always fresh. Great variety of items on the menu and a good selection of fresh fish as well. Outside seating during good weather. Parking could be tough at times.
