Great Band, Good Food!

I had the best time when my hubby and I found this place. We had been traveling all day, tired and cranky by the time we found a place that was still serving at 10 pm. We were so happy to find this lively fun place. We had some fish and shrimp and drinks. Then they had this really fun... read more

We enjoyed our visit there. We went to hear the live music & sat at the bar before dining. The bartender made recommendations about beers & was very friendly. I believe his name was Tyler. Our dinner was very good. Loved the ribs & sweet potato fries! The band was great & NO cover charge!

Definitely an original menu, different twists on traditional dishes. Can be a little pricey. Service was alright, busy due to the hockey game. Overall a decent experience.

Many thanks to Tyler, the bartender, and Megan, our server, for great service! And thanks to those in the kitchen who prepared our lobster grilled cheese sandwiches on sourdough bread with sweet potato fries! It was delicious! It's time to get back to downtown and visiting Two Steps will not disappoint you!

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
