We always stop in Newberry, SC on our way to Hilton Head Island. We always have dinner at Steven W's. This meal was amazing and we loved it. We had the Caesar salad topped with anchovies and blackened scallops small plate expanded to a dinner portion. It was excellent. Karen and the waitstaff are very friendly and prompt. Steve, the...

Two couples went to dinner and had a wonderful meal. Started off with Bang Bang Shrimp appetizer and it was great. The rolls were crusty and hot, yum! Two orders of scallops and crab with pasta, very interesting but delicious! Crab cakes were very tasty and virtually no bread crumbs. The halibut was the special and it was encrusted in... More

We tried a bowl of seafood gumbo each, blackened scallops & grits (appetizer size) and blackened scallops stuffed with deviled crab on angel hair pasta (daily special appetizer). Everything was wonderful and we received outstanding service. Our waitress was super! Scallops were cooked perfectly! Homemade crusty rolls (served with real butter) were delicious. Can't wait to dine here again.

The food was excellent and the service was exceptional. All of the dishes seem to be accompanied by either rice or mashed potatoes with a semi-cooked carrot sticking out of it and 2 vegetables. Mine were one stalk of broccoli and about a 1/4 cup of lima beans. They were O.K. nothing special, but my Salmon was excellent, in a... More

It was our 50th anniversary so we decided to splurge and eat at Steven W's. It was a great decision as we had a delicious meal. I would have given 5 stars except that the music playing that night was totally inappropriate for the ambiance of the restaurant. The place cries out for light classical music not 60s "yaya" type...

We were with a large group. We were seated and served as fast as could be expected. The menu was varied and all very good. I think most people would be very pleased with this Bistro.

We choose Steven's based on Trip Advisor- just happened on Newberry on our way to a wedding. The location and ambience of the resturant are lovely- old, renovated 2 story storefront. We choose to share the oyster/artichoke cakes and the blackened scallops to start. Both were absolutely divine. Our entrees were also excellent - whole flounder and pecan chicken. Everything... More

Steven W's has been an institution in Newberry for over 20 years. We live in Newberry and have dined there on many occasions. The service is exceptional and the food is always wonderful. Chef and owner Steve Foulis regularly leaves the kitchen to visit with customers. This is a great restaurant that has stood the test of time. I highly... More

Every one in our group of 6 loved everything about our experience...atmosphere, service, menu, and our food. Newberry is far from home and not convenient as my new favorite restaurant; but Steven W's makes me want to plan more trips for a quaint shopping stroll, matinee at the Newberry Opera House, and top it off with a walk across the...
