Always good-fresh food and nicely serviced. These men who own STEVE'S have been together since childhood and they produce a great restaurant. We eat here very often over many years.

The food was OK, as was the service. The hostess was actually really nice and the server wasn't bad he just seemed like he had better things to do. If I wanted to ask a question he'd go "I'll just give you a minute" and then walk away. In all fairness we just had appetizers and I'd had a salad,... More

My rule is always drink the house wine at decent restuarants. We did and we had a great time. The calamari and calm chowder were awesome!

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Steve's Steakhouse. Our party had a variety of menu items including chicken, sea bass, and steak. The atmosphere was very relaxed and enjoyable. The wait staff was very attentive. Great food for the price.

We had the filet, blackened swordfish and seafood and chips. It was great! We had a window seat, the view was fantastic. Servers were nice and so knowledgable about the fresh catch. The price was not bad for the amount of food. Loved 'Steves.

My wife had calamari, I had sirloin. Both were excellent. Service staff was attentive, not overbearing. Second floor location affords fine views of Catalina Harbor. Steve (owner) oversees without being obtrusive.
