Spotlight: Fish Tacos

One of the most sought after dishes at Stewby’s Seafood Shanty is our deliciously, mouth-watering fish tacos. A flour tortilla acts as the carrier of goodness. Choose from either our fish of the day usually mahi mahi, wahoo or amberjack or try our fresh shrimp. Have that topped with homemade coleslaw, tomato, cheese and our secret sauce. Simple, yet finger licking good is the best way to describe them. You’ll be coming back for more in no time! See you soon.
