Went to an early dinner with a group of ten (adult) family members and assumed they would offer flexible seating because of the casual, outdoor, picnic-style tables - but instead we were crammed into one regular sized picnic table with two of us seated next to each at the head of the table. The waitstaff seemed mystified by having to seat a large party and clearly unprepared (even a little annoyed). All of the tables inside are round so that wasn't even an option. We made due and squeezed in but it definitely and immediately put a damper on our moods. Very disappointing.
Drinks were good, someone ordered a Blueberry Mojito which was shockingly sweet but delicious (as a dessert) and they did have a few choices of quality wine, which was nice for those not drinking beer.
Food is solid, generous and came quickly. They are famous for their Lobster Stew which is basically hot cream with some lobster in it - simple and very rich. I ordered a lobster roll because I was too lazy to shell an lobster but that was a mistake - go for the "shedders" here - they are soft shell lobsters and are delicate sweet and tender. I regret not getting one. Sides are the usual. Others had burgers and they looked big and good. One can only eat so much lobster.
This is the second time I've dined at Stewman's - the place is a Bar Harbor Institution for casual, dock dining and the location can't be beat, but don't expect anything out of the ordinary and don't go with more than five people.
