Great place to look out at the water while enjoying a fine dinner!

Great service, nice view with open windows. Nice menu. Steak was excellent and shrimp was large and very good. Walked in without reservations and were seated immediately. The place filled up soon after we arrived.

Best steak dinner we have had in a long time! Reservations would help if you want a table with a view near the window. Food was delicious, and service great.

Intimate setting with a lovely view (select tables) over the Harbour. Excellent food and thoughtfully attentive (without being intrusive) service. Menu offers a wide variety of items for a breath of palettes and tastes. It is readily apparent that they care about the quality of the food and patrons experience. This is unusual in Avalon. A lot of restaurants give... More

Our hotel Vista Del Mar recommended Steve's for dinner for our first night. The table at Steve's on the 2nd floor had a picture view of the pier and the ocean and it was absolutely wonderful.

Try to call ahead to ask for a table next to the outside. There's no guarantees, but it may set you up for success. Even if you don't get the table you want, this place still has great views and the food makes it worth the visit. Pros: Salmon Caesar salad was cooked to perfection. The salmon was delicious and...

Steve's is a great place to step out of the hustle and bustle of people and just relax in an old world style. The hotel is up a flight of stairs on the second floor, so that when you are seated you have a great view of the port and the boats. It is quiet, and elegant for an island... More
