Maybe it's "just a steak place", but most trips to Catalina we end up having dinner there one of the nights; food's great, the people are nice, and on weekdays it's not too hard to get in -- but do make a res for a weekend.

We really enjoyed our evening at Steve's. Steve actually sat us at our table and was very friendly despite the restaurant being so busy. John was our waiter and he did a very good job. We started with a steamed artichoke and it was cooked perfectly. Three out of the four of us ordered the Sea Bass because it was... More

We had read many reviews about Steve's and we were not disappointed. This restaurant is really busy so you need to have reservations. John was our server and he explained all of the specials for the day and was very attentive. The sea bass was excellent as was the steak. The key lime pie was a great way to end... More

Definitely a nice place to eat in Avalon. We had this recommended to us by our hotel and it was exactly what we wanted. Steaks were good and they even added King Crab legs. For where it is and the quality the pricing is reasonable.

This place came highly recommended by many on catalina island. Our food was very good, but the server got my side wrong. From there the dessert came and was mediocre at best. We also ordered coffee and milk with dessert and it did not show with deasert. As a matter of fact it did not show until we asked about... More

Steve's was recommended by friends who frequent the island. We had a romantic window table and a lovely dinner. The service was great too. For a steakhouse, they make fantastic sea bass.

This is the second year we have come to this restaurant. The food and service were top rate. I got the seabass. It was perfectly prepared. My husband got a steak, he loved it. We got a window seat which is worth requesting and waiting for. We will come back next summer for sure.

We have been to Catalina quite a bit so we have tried a lot of the restaurants. This was overall a very good place. The steak was pretty good and all the seafood we tried was good as well. We had a reservation and they sat us right away and our server was friendly. Overall I would recommend this place... More

Four of us had a nice dinner here but it was not great and exceptionally noisy. My wife's tuna was not rare as she had asked but probably because it was not a thick slice while my swordfish was OK but I expected better given where we were.

We had a lovely dinner at a table overlooking the harbor. Staff was good and so was the food. Some hotels offer coupons for discounts at Steve's so don't forget to ask.
