Really fun and casual place that has a tremendous variety of fresh seafood, everything you could think of ordering. You can also take fresh fish home to prepare yourself. Interesting decor, everything seems to be made fresh when you order so you have time to take in all the pirate and nautical decor. Eat in or outside! Only surprise was... More

This place was great for my girlfriend and I. We got the fishermens patter it was way more than we could eat. Awesome outdoor seating. Horrible parking lot.

I take out of town visitors here to show them a bit of New England and our buttery Connecticut lobster rolls. I don't know of any other state that serves lobster in butter on a toasted hot dog bun--but Stowe's does and does so at a reasonable price--$12.00 or so. They also make great french fries and have a wide... More

After a long stroll along the beach trail, we decided to try it. My wife had the fish sandwich...two slices of white toast on the side and three filets of lightly battered sole...very fresh and value priced. I had the fish and chips...very fresh haddock... lightly battered...crispy seasoned fries...delicious. Go for the seafood and view of the beach across the... More

So we heard about this place from some family members. But their description didn't even come close. I love the look and feel of this place and the food OMG . I ordered the treasure chest because I couldn't make up my mind as to what to eat. I didn't know that I was going to have to find room... More

As I have mentioned in other reviews my wife and I have been working our way down a list of places in CT that serve lobster rolls. So far, after visiting about 7 or 8 places, Stowe's is our favorite. Others have been very good and deserve a repeat visit but Stowe's is our favorite. The seasoning is just the... More

For a long time I thought this place was a bait and tackle shop. A friend told me about Stowe's about 5 years ago and I'm glad she did . We went to Stowe's and the food was unbelievable. Very very fresh and the staff is nice. We had the Treasure Chest which is the seafood combo platter and it... More

I love seafood. That being said I will tell you that I am also very picky since there are loads of seafood places in Southern Connecticut and I've been to most of them. Stowe's is my place to go when I am in need of a lobster roll fix or some fresh fried clams, shrimp, onion rings, cod, stuffed clams,... More

To start off it is a small shack, VERY interesting inside. Yes most tables are outside, " in the partking lot", close. Its all paper and plastic. Parking is to say the least, tight. Why go there and give it a 4 ? The FOOD, some of the best seafood around. Great view of the water. The fish tastes like... More
