Steve's is upstairs on the main pedestrian road. They get busy so I suggest making a reservation especially if you want a view of the bay. The wait staff are all very pleasant and professional. I have been there several times and it has been consistently good. They have a full bar in the rear. My... read more

Steve's Steakhouse is a wonderful place to eat on Catalina Island. We had a table by the window and the view of Avalon Harbor is beautiful. We had steak and seafood, and everything was excellent! We would highly recommend Steve's to anyone seeking a relaxing, enjoyable meal.

We ate here on our first night in Avalon having read the reviews others had posted. It was a lovely warm evening so the large windows were wide open offering wonderful views out over the harbour while we ate a top quality steak dinner. If it's great weather then I'd recommend asking for an upstairs table by the window when... More

My husband and I loved this restaurant! We have had Calamari in many different places. This is the best we have ever had! It was tender and seasoned perfectly! We each had a different salad and both were great. I probably couldn't eat here all the time as I felt it was a tad bit on the spendy side, but... More

A steak house with lots of very good fish offerings. The shrimp Avalon style was marvelous! And if you've never had sand dabs, this is the place to try them.

great view, great food, great service. I recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner. The ambiance is perfect, dinner is candle lit, and high culture music plays in the background.
