I have been a fan of the Steele Pig for several years. Since 2011, I have had numerous top-notch dining experiences at the Steele Pig; ones that have far exceeded my expectations for a restaurant in the small-town of Sanford. The food is always fresh and well-prepared; the menu is innovative and changes with according to the "flavors" of the... More

The Steele Pig offers excellent food in a small downtown atmosphere. They take pride in their specials and everything is made from fresh ingredients. The servers do a great job as well.

Might have been good at one time--probably was. However, when my husband and I returned for our second meal there, he found a hair in his food. Disgusting, yes, especially when a long, bearded man came out of the kitchen and we knew exactly from whence it came!

We have eaten here a few times since moving to Sanford. The food was very good but on the upper scale of what we normally pay when eating out.

Recommended by a friend and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent as well as the staff. Comfort food prepared uniquely and with great flavors. So many delicious items on the menu it was difficult making a decision as to what to order.

One of Sanford's best kept secrets. It's small and intimate - nice place for a quiet dinner for two. Delicious Southern entrees and an impressive wine list. Reservations are recommended.

One of the few upscale restaurants in downtown Sanford. The food was very delicious and had a little higher price tag. I believe we got out of there for around $65 with a decent tip. We did not have any adult beverages so expect to add another $20 if you decide to. Definitely a place we will return for special... More
