We sat outside, on the deck by the water on a beautiful day. We had grilled haddock sandwiches with sweet potato fries. The servings were large. The service was friendly and they brought a bowl with water for our dog.

Stopped in Stewman's for a drink with my husband after walking across the "bar" and back. Didn't have dinner, but will definitely try it next time we are in town. Patrick and Rachel were very friendly and helpful with advice on things to do in...More

Lobster was awesome! Fish and chips also good. The service was fast and friendly! The view of the ocean where the kayaks come in was interesting.

Lovely view from the deck! Lobster Cobb salad was pretty good! Loved the blueberry mojito and the blueberry pie was TO DIE FOR!! Local raw oysters were less than average but maybe that's our fault for ordering them in a month without an "r"!!
