I have occasionaly frequented Stewarts for years and have always had a good time. Stewarts is set up like a sports bar. There is about 5 TV's with various games on. They also have 2 dart lanes available.
The food is solid, but not spectacular. They do better with the typical pub grub(wings, fries, burgers) than they do with some of their other entrees. I have never been disapointed, but also have never been wowed.
Where Stewart's shines is its beer. Their beer selections are varied and most are very good. Tonight I enjoyed a smoked porter that was excellent. The food and the beer are all reasonably priced.
Edit:
The last few times I have been there the service has been spotty.

Located in a strip mall; interior has not much to see. A pretty family-friendly atmosphere with lots of seating. Sports bar kind of place with a local feel. Had two beer lists really: 6-8 standards and 6-8 specials, with one of those being a guest draft. Didn't try to many, but the beer wasn't bad. Food menu looked solid, but we just got appetizers. They were good. Was there for a group thing and the place was right for that.

Holy guacamole can this place make a good hefeweisen! I tend to loathe many American hefeweisens and certainly didn't expect such deliciousness from a brewpub in a far flung suburban shopping center. Our bartender was helpful and attentive and enthusiastic and really made the visit great for first-timers.

All the beers we tried (2 flights plus 2 pints) were solid and our meals were excellent, at very fair prices. I got a peculiarly-shaped crabcake sandwich that I initially turned my Baltimore nose up at but it turned out to be so good that I kept wanting another one for weeks afterward.

A surprising and yummy place.

Knowledgeable staff. Sean was great with insights and recommendations. Generally a fairly spacious brew pub with multi-TV/sports channels going on. Games. Glass walls displaying brew tanks, etc.Has a feel of brew pub, british pub, sports bar and strip mall.
Beer was typically very good with a few awesome beers. Many seasonals to enjoy.
Everyone was ordering/eating food ( eat in and take out). I didn't this trip, but felt sure I would have been more than happy.
Overall atmosphere was upbeat, friendly and definitely full of regular happy patrons.
Enjoyed my stay, beer was way above average with standouts. Considering how many GABF and WBC medals these guys have won...they definitely showed it in what I had. Nice thing is that they had something for practically anyone. Something for everyone. Will definitely go back.
