Fresh Local Seafood in a Laid-Back Setting
Stewby’s Seafood Shanty is an offshoot of a local family restaurant known as Sam’s Oyster House. Here, the vibe is more intimate and relaxed, with a small dining room and a drive-thru for your convenience. The drive-thru is especially great if you feel like dining on delicious seafood in the comfort and privacy of your own vacation rental, without having to make it yourself!
Stewby’s Seafood Shanty is renowned for its fresh local fish, its hearty sandwiches, and its signature seafood gumbo. Specials rotate daily, including choices like colossal shrimp, mutton snappers, sheepshead, local mullet, and smoked fish dip. The restaurant serves up fish grilled or fried, from soft shell crab and shrimp to oysters or the fish of the day, such as amberjack, wahoo, or mahi mahi. And for those who are somehow not interested in trying the fresh seafood that Stewby’s has to offer, you can always enjoy a landlubber’s meal with grilled or fried chicken.
Entrées range from platters to tacos and sandwiches, available with a host of sides and a la carte options. Calamari, fried shrimp, jumbo grilled shrimp, oysters, fish, soft shell crab, and chicken are all available a la carte. Delicious sides include cheese grits, hush puppies, fried okra, barbeque beans, coleslaw, fried onion petals, potato salad, and French fries.
The restaurant has hours daily from 10:00am until 10:00pm, making it an excellent choice for lunch or dinner during your stay.
