as a long time resident of Catalina there are a handful of restaurants I still enjoy....Steve's is definetly one of them! Great for both lunch and dinner but can also be enjoyed for libations and a little grazing. Reservations during the summer months is a must!!!!

This restaurant is located on the second floor and if you get a window seat, which we requested for a reservation, you have a spectacular view of Avalon Bay.

Great steak we both enjoyed it, great location however the chowder was only warm but very tasty. Not overly cheap but worth the visit.

Had called ahead to see if this restaurant could handle the various dietary needs. Told they could, but essentially they just took out any bread and made changes like that. Had a nice view, but the staff was definitely lacking. One time, a waiter actually dropped a used napkin in my food. He just picked it up and moved on... More

The food is great and the service is even better. Never a wait for a server or someone to fill your water. Definitely make reservations. And, try the oysters Rockefeller. Yum!!

If you want a table with a view, then book it! We had a great meal of steak and it was cooked exactly as we wanted it. We also had a dessert which was good. The service was good but nothing out of the ordinary.
