Warm weather and memorial day heading in our direction, buzzing bees, annuals getting planted, lots of fresh seafood, fresh paint, friendly faces from interesting places. Jazz on Sunday with Bruce and Fred, it’s all happening, it’s all good and we’re so grateful for you all. Be patient with each other this weekend, everyone slow down especially those city folk. You are on the Cape to slow down and relax, not cram as much as you can into your day. Slow down enjoy the ride and treat each other with kindness. thanks bill
Welcome back all you homeys, Spring is in the air and it’s infected us all here. Wonderful Spring day here on our Outer Cape, total blue sky, perfect weather. Our workers are up on the roof, our young charge Eric is landscaping, Peter is painting Chef Stan is getting his ordering together, My bluebird Karen is bustling with creative juices and your host Bill is humming inside. We hope to make this year better then last and we’re working to make it so. New menu items too!!!!!!!
New faces and old stopping by to say tally-ho, Bruce and Fred are tuning up their instruments, and we are also going to have Steve Morgan and his blues band this summer also to mix it up a bit for you.
We are looking forward to seeing and serving you all. The secret phase is “Say goodby to winter”. tell me and see what happens…..love you all, work hard, play hard, eat fish and all that jazz with a touch of the blues. P.s. Kevin is running a great operation at Mac’s our pals next door. Stop in.
Now we put our child to sleep for the winter, this is our last open night and we can’t thank you all enough, you have been just super and we are so appreciatve. From the first to the last customer and from the bottom of our hearts we salute you. You are the reason we are here. We wish we could stay open the year round but alas the traffic and folks melt away, and so must we. The birds fly south and the Cape grows so romantically quiet, we’ll be around, sitting by the woodstove as we plot and plan for next year. We already have surprises in store for you. Updated menu and bar munchies. Lots of other things so do drop by and if you see our cars knock on the door, we’ll be in and out attending to a variety of things. The winter goes fast down here, and we generally get less snow then Boston, knock on wood. Please let us know if we can do anything for you most of you have our number and we are at your service. We’ll be posting more here as the season allows. Stay with us, thank you all and remember. Work hard, Play hard, and Eat Fish and all that jazz.
love bill and karen and the entire crew of Stewart’s
It’s already October 22 and last night was another excellent night for Stewart’s. Where did you all come from? ha, one minute we were sitting around wondering what kind of night we were going to have and the next, like a bomb went off. Bruce and Fred played last night and everybody remarks how great they are. One of our best decisions was contracting them, they are superlative, if you haven’t heard them please come down Fridays, classic jazz with winds (sax, flute, clarinet) and Fred on Guitar. You won’t be disappointed, one of the Cape’s jewels. We hope to be open till the end of October and then, patch up, fix up and on to next year. Cooler weather starting to roll in and still warm enough days perfect for biking, etc. see you all on the flip side and thanks for all your help last night. l.b.
Oyster festival in Wellfleet, brings in huge crowds and they all seem to enjoy. Great. Winds howling tonight, hope the tents hold up. Our dining room is full again and you’d think they would be tired of oysters by now, but nope. Nice to see young children enjoying oysters and not being shy about eating them. Good job parents. Karen’s patrolling the dining room and she is in her element. Not a table goes without her welcome. She is the real face of Stewart’s come ask for her and mention you heard it here and get a free beverage, ha. want to see who’s really reading this. We will be open for lunch and dinner tomorrow and then we’ll close for three days and reopen Thursday for dinner. See you then and we have one more weekend of live jazz by the fire. Please come and join us…..till then. love you madly. b
Hi folks, the weather promises to cooperate this weekend for the oyster fest. Personally I find it overrated and I don’t go, but it does contribute to our biz. You would think that there is no other oyster in the world, ha, however Eastham, has it’s own beds as well as many other towns. Fact is Oysters are more plentiful now then ever before. From the Pacific north to our shores, we never had more abundance of oysters. For some reason the locals are hung up on Wellfleet. There are better oysters out there shhhhh, don’t want to wake up anyone. But the festival does attract huge crowds, and it does signal the end of the summer and herald in the fall. Enjoy!!!! stop at the pearl restaurant for a drink and ask Mac’s for some Stewart’s soda, ha. and enjoy the crowds, lots of live music. remember, work hard, play hard eat fish and all that jazz. We have live music tonight join us by the fireplace. l.bill
We are thick into the Columbus Day holiday and the weather is picture perfect. We have had a huge crowd this weekend and it’s not over yet. Everyone seems to enjoy the atmosphere and hospitality and food and the moon is almost full, Days have been last of summer warm, swimming weather really!!!! ah bask in this autumnal delight why you can, soon the rains will come and the Cape will lose the last of our summer guests and then it’s all ours again till the peepers start. The winters down here are splendid, quiet, moody, low clouds and peace and quiet. Think about visiting the Cape on the weekends this winter. We have cross-country skiing, loads of outdoor trails to wander, and no crowds. love you all b.
I prefer the Outer Cape, instead of Lower Cape, We are not Lower, but Outer. Here we are Columbus Day, gosh, no white sales?ha, nope just good old recognizable comforting food here. Stan’s made a great bouliabase, with all things seafoody, nice crusty bread for dipping and the baseballs playoffs are competing with Bruce and Fred’s music. I dare say we are the only establishment with live jazz on the Cape this time of year and our fireplace is a boom for all of our friends this time of year. Cool nights and warm days, suppose to hit 80 tomorrow. Moon’s out over the water and duck season starts tomorrow also. So many new and old friends are in tonight and we can take the time and chat with them all. Karen my sweet wife knows just how to work that room, no one leaves without her making them feel truly appreciated. She works so hard for all of us. Devon and Rich behind the bar making everyone feel welcome and appreciated. This is what we strive to create everyday. Some are more striven then others, ha, be well enjoy what you have where y ou are and remember. Work hard, play hard and Eat fish and all that jazz. love bill
It has been exceptionally quiet today……Bruce and Fred are playing tonight and we wonder if anyone will show up at all, maybe we just feed them and send them home to their wives. Not sure what’s happening but it is a very very quiet day. Ah well such is the life of a seasonal restaurant, off season. Stan making roast pork with all the fixins’ and we’ll eat well tonight with the fog, drizzle and rain. Come on down you’ll get great roast pork and great tunes with Bruce and Fred. See you we hope, ha. l. b.
Verrrrrry slow here this Tuesday, as expected, sometimes I wonder why we remain open during the beginning of the week, but then all of a sudden the place will begin to hum and customers show up and all is well. However you can feel the change starting. Watched the Soxs the other night here in the outside bar area 14 innings, excellent, no cars on the highway, sweet still air. Wonderfully warm night, so there is that specialness connected with the shoulder season. The beaches are wide open no fees and there is plenty of space, bring the dogs out, watch the seals bob up and down on the incoming tide. In the olden days they were called horses heads. Tonight the fog rolls in and like a mirage we will all of a sudden appear. I absolutely love the feel of this outer cape with all the changes and the drama and the stillness and the quiet. I do wish there was more for the youth here, way to much drug abuse and not enough attention to these chaps. Oh well we can’t have it all…….be well and thanks for the feedback on my blog. I have to be careful, what I say, ha….talk to you soon, l.b.
