Super comfort food & pleasant service!

The Lobster Pot (with corn, pearl onions, peas, potatoes and carrots under a sage crust) was great and the steak entree was both tender and delicious! The service is quick & attentive without being intrusive; you are not rushed out the door despite this restaurant's popularity and great location... read more

We have dined here several times in the past and have always had a lovely experience. This past weekend...not so much. We had a 6:30pm reservation and, as it was a lovely sunny evening, asked to be seated outside. For some bizarre reason, outdoor seating is first come, first served only. Rather than wait a half hour for an outdoor... More

We had lunch on the patio. The seating was good but a bit crowded. Be aware of the birds that are constantly flying around super close. The lunch menu was very good and the portions were more than adequate. I had the East Valley Road Salad which was very good. The Caramelized Apple Bread Pudding was super yummy and I... More

This place is just awesome, everything on the menu is delicious! We went for a late lunch/dinner, seated outside, a beautiful June afternoon, watching people walking by, eating great food..... simply a good life! Their lobster roll and oversized hamburger are highly recommended, a bit pricy, but totally worth it!

Went on tripadvisor reviews and thought we would eat here. Well, what a huge disappointment. First I ordered lobster Basque, which was cold. Told my waitress and she told manager. He was very apologetic and sent it back. He cane back out with my sane bowl, not a be bowl and served it to me. It was hot. My main... More

My daughter and I stopped here for a quick lunch and were not disappointed. The Italian panini and the brisket sandwich were both truly amazing. A lot of flavor in both sandwiches and I would order again. Servers were very attentive and provided great service. I would recommend Stephanie's for a great meal, service and a beautiful renovation. Thank you... More

The brunch is very good and with a Bloody Mary to warm the heart it is a cool place. It is popular, outside is first come first served. I called by at 9.00 looking for an 11.00 am slot. Was advised to arrive at about 10.45 , claim the table and i could come back at 11.00. Unfortunately the welcome... More
