Terrific blackened swordfish and other dished as well. Service was great and view was terrific. Next time we will make reservations to make sure we have a table next to the windows that overlook the bay.

The food and drinks were great! The service was good and even though the place was crowded our drinks and meals were served promptly and with apparent ease. Don't miss the Key Lime Pie!

The window seat provides great people watching and sunset. Steaks were done perfectly. Two other tables were celebrating anaversaries too. That was fun. Your memories are the only things you can take with you.

Had out last island dinner here. Yes, it is a bit on the expensive side but that is a known before walking in the door. The waitstaff was attentive.

The food, the view, the service, the location are all excellent. Equally impressive are the prices even considering the area. It is definitely one of the best meals you can find on the island but also probably the most expensive. Only by that virtue is it not the best value. The owners and staff made our meal a pleasure.

Being our first time to Catalina in 20 years, we were not sure where to eat. We saw the sign for Steve's and thought it might be nice to be on the 2nd floor with nice views of the harbor. This place did not disappoint. The host was a nice young man who was born and raised on the island... More

Good but Overpriced. Pricing surely had an impact in our ability to get seated here without a wait on a busy Saturday evening in July. Our table thought the food was good but overpriced. The seafood skewer was different included a small portion of swordfish and one scallop which were very good but at $30 should have been two skewers... More
