“Best Steak on the Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

As a guest of the El Terado Terrace Hotel , we were given a 12% Discount at Steve's. We would go back even without the discount. This was truly the best Steak we have had anywhere. The owner, Steve was a great host and he saw that we got a table that was right on the water. The food was great, The View was great, the Drinks were great, (Ask for the Ivan Special) and Steve well what can I say you were the best. We Will be back soon.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your recent dining experience at Steve's Steakhouse on TripAdvisor. Thank you for the terrific compliment about going back even without the discount! In regard to the drink special you reference, did you mean the "Island Special", which is a buffalo milk? If it isn't the island special, would you be so kind as to give me a call or send me an email and let me know what the "Ivan Special" is as we don't have a drink with that name. But since you liked it and recommended it, maybe we should offer it - just let us know how to mix it and we'll make it! It would be a shame to have guests asking for the "Ivan Special" and the staff won't know what they are requesting. Drop us a line, we would love to hear from you or let us know the next time you visit.

With very warm regards,

Steve Bray, owner Steve's Steakhouse

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

If you want a table with a view, then book it! We had a great meal of steak and it was cooked exactly as we wanted it. We also had a dessert which was good. The service was good but nothing out of the ordinary.

“Niiiice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

If you want a white-tablecloth restaurant, Steve's it is. The skirt steak with carmelized onions and mushrooms was delicious, as was the corn chowder. Oh, and the coconut butterflied shrimp was to die for-great dipping sauce, too. I'll be back
