Met friends for a luncheon during the holidays and was pleased with the atmosphere of the place and the prompt service. However I thought the food was just average and my chicken sandwich greasy.

Went for lunch. Service was fast and steak and salads came to perfection at very reasonable prices. It seems they are more busy, crowded and fun in the evening, so service may be different also. Not many draught beer options but comes perfectly freezing cold !

The food is still good, after all these years, even though there is not much for us on the menu for vegetarians. My husband eats scallops, and he always get them at Two Steps, as they are quite good, especially when blackened. The salads are decent and the complimentary chips and salsa have improved greatly over the years. The restaurant... More

Baby back ribs are the best around. So tender they fall off the bone. They also have a great bar menu for $5.00 that can't be beat. I don't understand why more people don't go here. My husband and I always have a great meal. Staff very friendly and attentive.

Have eaten there many times, and gone for drinks a few times. The "blackened filet mignon sandwich" is my favorite dish there; tho some of their food items may be better than average or let's say, not. I, personally, have never had a bad meal there. Also, the Sunday Brunch may vary somewhat from week to week; but is usually... More

I would like to start this review by saying I used to be a huge fan of Two Steps, but over the last couple of years this place has become a disappointment. First let me start by saying you used to have to wait for a seat, we were there on a Saturday night before a home hockey game and... More

Went there on a Tuesday and dined alfresco. We ordered the sesame tuna and salmon. The tuna was the best I have ever eaten, and my wife enjoyed the salmon. Half-Price Hookup made it even more enjoyable. If you haven't been there in a while, go back and try it again. You won' be disappointed.
