We live nearby & go for a nice dinner or celebration. We've always had excellent times there. My band has celebrated holidays there as well.

Even thought we were there on a busy night (there was a reunion upstairs), they were able to accommodate a special request. Convenient to the Newberry Opera House. Fresh fish was available.

Great little restaurant. We were seated right away. The waitress was great, very informative about the menu. The food was very fresh, the fish were swimming that morning. Best filet mignon I ever had. Service, location and food is great.

The Apricot Flounder is a specialty and is worth a try for something unique and it reminded me of one of my favorite Vietnamese dishes. The selection is nice, salads are fresh and well done. Great place for before or after dinner when visiting the Newberry Opera House. Just a block away. Great service and good food.

the food was outstanding, seating was by reservation. The front door opened directly onto the diners making it very cold every time someone came in or went out.

Steven W's was once very posh for special dining. But over the last few years it has slipped dramatically. It is never busy for a reason. The menu is now bland for chef's ability. The service is sloppy. The tables and house are in need of cleaning. They are living in their past. We will not pay their top prices,... More

We had just attended a play, Jekyll & Hyde, The Musical, at Newberry Opera House. We chose the matinee, because we live about an hour & 15 minutes away. We did make a reservation at Steven W's Downtown Bistro , not knowing how busy they might be. We were seated immediately and greeted very warmly. Our server spoke of their... More

The restaurant was recommended to me by the woman who coordinates volunteers at the Artist Coop in Laurens. I was so happy we made the drive. The menu selection was outstanding and the evenings specials made it more difficult to decide what to have. The blackened scallops with deviled crab and the crab cakes did not disappoint...they were fresh and... More
