We have been here a few times over the last few years. Each time we go we remember why we avoid the place. There is kind of a dingy feel to the place. The food is very forgettable. No one in the family enjoyed their...More

Picture yourself dancing in your seat, snapping fingers and bopping your head to oldies music while you demolish a basket of French fries and a root beer float. That's how cool this place is. We sat at barstools at the counter for a real old-fashioned...More

This place is definately a must stop for anyone visiting in town Cape May. We adored the place (off season, so low crowds). Great, friendly service. We had the sliders and sweet potato fries. Very good food.

Good place for a quick lunch or treat. Old time soda fountain atmosphere. We had very good hot dogs for a quick lunch on a Saturday and the place was mobbed.

Stopped in for a late lunch. The waitresses were friendly. The food was pretty good and a lot of it not a bad price for two. Our first time in stewarts will go back again

Great lunch stop. The floats were reminded me of being a kid at the Woolworths 5 and 10 soda fountain. Great chili dogs and fries. Its a bit expensive but worth it. Best of all, Blue Lives Matter flag on the wall.

The best thing about this place is that it's not packed and you can pop in and grab a quick bite (or could if service was better). Especially appreciated when all the restaurants around have lines out the door and you don't want a big...More
