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

Nice fifties atmosphere and friendly service. The food is only average, at best. We were a party of three and ordered two hamburgers and a cheese steak, as a basket (additional 2.99 for a handful of fries and two round pickle slices). The cheese steak looked good and my son enjoyed it. The burgers were also tasty, but very small.... More

There are many fine places to eat in Cape May, but when we needed a quick bite to hold us over, found Stewart's to be the answer. Nothing spectacular, but a quick hot dog, burger or a cup of soap did the trick. Service was fast & friendly and we we soon on our way!

Love this place! Stewart's was very clean and had a fun atmosphere... We went for an ice cream sundae to share and had such a great visit. Our server was friendly and sweet!

We needed a fast place and this was perfect. We sat outside and that was nice. Prices are great- food is yummy. It was an old bank and the outside facing was left. They also have the vault inside- pretty cool! Bathroom was very clean.

Since I LOVE Stewart's Root Beer, we had to try it for lunch. While the food is the usual burgers, etc., it was still tasty. The service was excellent, and the appearance of the interior decorating was neat to look at. The interior was clean. Would definitely recommend it if you are shopping in the Washington St area, and need... More
