The food and service were very good. If you're looking for an upscale, formal place for dinner this would be your best bet on the island. Overall I'd say the best part of the meal was the view... Get a reservation early and request a table by the window.

Same owner of Maggie's right below, great attention to details in both restaurants. Wife did surf I did turf, both very good. Place is almost a little too dark inside. Live music, nice touch.

As boaters we visit Avalon 2 or 3 times a year. We always go to Steve's Steakhouse and rotate through other restaurants. Steve's food is consistently excellent. Last night I had the flavorful Top Sirloin and my wife had the Halibut special. Both dishes came out perfect. Steve is always there and he keeps a keen eye on the dining... More

It is upstairs. If you make a reservation you can likely get a table by a window. A guitarist played. You can hear the waves. It is pricey but excellent. I had the seafood kabob special my husband had steak and jumbo shrimp. They were jumbo too!

We were celebrating our anniversary and had requested a table overlooking the harbor. We were seated by a very nice lady at a lovely table next to the window, the food was excellent and my husband couldn't say enough good things about his New York steak, the best he had in years! I had fresh sea bass which was also... More

This is the place if you want the best steak and seafood on the island. Steve is usually there to make sure your meal met your expectations.

I ordered a ribeye med well came back more med. It wasn't as flavorful as I expected for a $30 steak, the asparagus was kind of bland. The Lava flow was pretty good. :*) The service was a little slow, not even sure the waiter checked on us after we got our food until he brought the check. It's a... More

This is a wonderful restaurant, outstanding food and service. Always consistently good/excellent, the service is professional, polite and knowledgeable. This restaurant also has one of the only views from upstairs, nice views of the Green Pier and Avalon Bay.
