Great atmosphere and food. I hear the read snapper is great, unfortunately the the waiter pushed my wife to the grouper. She didn't know the snapper was a special too.

We dined here on our first night in Catalina. We like to follow Trip Advisors ratings. I ordered "Jumbo"broiled shrimp. The shrimp were medium size and tasteless. Baked potato was very good. My Husband had good salmon. Too bad we don't eat red meat, but I expected # 1 restaurant to be Excellent for all menu items. Owner was there,... More

Tripadvisor thank you! While you won't find the fare here cheap, what you get is well worth the price. Medium rare filet was perfectly prepared: seasoning spot on, nice char, and everything around the meal from salads to service (John) was a great joy. Was here several years ago as well and if anything it's better!

The filet mignon arrived super hot, perfectly cooked (medium I preferred) with a lot of vegetables on the side. Warm sour dough bread with butter came before and it was really fresh and tasty. The island was going through a drought so the only water they served was a bottled water for .50 cents. That was fine with us. The... More

Friends of ours who live on the island recommended Steve's Steakhouse. The food was good but nothing unique and anything extra was an added expense. We didn' mind because we were on vacation. The decor was nice and had excellent service.
