Actually the root beer float and frosted mug of root beer were great!! All the ice cream products are good, too. Just skip the food! UGH! We've given Stewart's three chances for lunch. That's enough.

We were in Cape May on the Friday of the Christmas Parade Weekend and my wife was craving soup and a sandwich. We had never been to Stewart's in Cape May, though I had been to many other Stewart's around Jersey throughout the years and always had a decent burger. So I checked their website and found that they were... More

The service is quick and efficient in this inviting place. Their root beer float is predictably delicious. The place is simple in design but feels open and airy - nice atmosphere.

We wanted to just grab something quick because we had a lot to do. This was a GREAT choice! The burgers were wonderful! The chicken fingers & fries was great & enough for 2 people! But the highlight of our quick stop was the onion rings! We all agreed they were the best we've ever had! Our waitress was outstanding... More

Good ice-creams and floats. Nice family-oriented parlor. Nice ambiance. And there is an old bank-safe door, fun for kids.

Service was good friendly servers. It was a busy night and different peoole assisted but did a good job. That was the only good thing. Food came out quick I just don't know how it could be cold! Unless the kitchen made ahead.

Grabbed a quick lunch. This place is very inviting and clean. Our waitress was nice and helpful. We had the California Burger and Portabella Burger. Both were outstanding.

We went to Stewart's twice during our week's stay in Cape May and they were closed during posted hours. I guess they close up if they feel they don't have enough off-peak guests to warrant being open. But guests can't come because they're closed. I called ahead the third time, wanting to take our grandson for a more casual meal... More

Stopped to enjoy amazing renovation of this old bank where they have kept old safe which is awesome to see. For $13.00 had two floats with such a scant amount of ice cream, come on seriously? Why be so cheap? We won't be back here but will try one of the many other snack places on mini mall. You would... More
