“I loved this place!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 via mobile

Just ate here for the first time. I had a cup of gumbo, seasoned fries, fried mullet, fried okra, hush puppies and tea...right at $14.00
The staff was courteous and the wait was short. I also took my parents here who are sometimes hard to please. They were really happy with their meal as well.
I highly recommend this establishment.

“Good food, picnic setting”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

The food here was very good especially the fried oysters. If you are looking for extreme casual with a country feel this is your place. It is picnic tables in a screened in porch-like setting with country music blaring. My only problem was it was a little tricky to find and a little more casual than I was looking for while there.

“Delicious”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Awesome food. Good price. Excellent value. Really enjoyed the tastily seasoned fried okra with the fresh, local fish. Liked it so much we went twice on our short trip. Only thing that could make it better is if it was closer to the hotels on the Gulf side.

“Great seafood at great price.”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Vacationed in Navarre and was looking for a reasonably priced seafood restaurant to satisfy our large family of 8. Went to Stewby's based on the reviews and was not disappointed. Well worth the 30 minute drive.

“Deep fried goodness.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

This place is a bit aways from the beach but its easy to find. Ordered the stewby platter with fried shrimp, oysters and the fish of the day. The shrimp was so fresh and absolutely delish! Their not the small fried shrimp like at the big chain eateries. All three items where fried to golden perfection, not too dry and seasoned just right. Had them with fries and baked beans.
It was a bit pricey for the amount we got but still managed to feed two people with what we got. The kids meals were $6 a piece, no drink included. The food was good, seafood was fresh.
