Stefani's is able to accommodate you on either their outside patio overlooking the bay, in their sports bar, or in a nice dining room with a beautiful fireplace.

Since Stefani's sits right on Birch Bay, their specialty is seafood, but they had a special on prime rib the day we ate there, plus lots of burgers and salads. We enjoyed fried oysters and clams, plus pints of designer beer.

They have about 20 beers on tap, wine, and a full bar. Happy Hour is from 4 to 6pm Monday thru Friday with six entrees at $7.99, plus discounts on alcohol. There is also a children's menu.
