Steve's steakhouse was a great restraunt. The food was delicious, the steak was cooked to perfection and was soft and juicy. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was so friendly. Definitely a must while in Catalina.

Went to Steve's on a Saturday night and enjoyed an absolutely delicious meal! Don't miss out on the steak...even better, go with one of the many surf & turf options! Highly recommend making a reservation as it's a popular spot with tourists and locals. If you're staying overnight you will definitely want to have dinner here.

We did not have a reservation, and the restaurant was busy, yet we were treated like kings. The server (John) knew the menu inside and out, and made some perfect recommendations. And our table with a view could not be beat.

I consider myself a steak aficionado...Whenever I go out it is usually for steak. The steaks at Steve's are top notch for sure! They also know how to cook them perfectly. The flavor of the steak was not covered in excessive seasoning so I was able to taste the real flavor.... ummmmmm. My wife and I called at the last... More

My friend and I recently went to Catalina Island for the day and had lunch at Steve's Steak House. We shared a filet, which was perfection and a Cobb Salad that was divine. The place was jammed (a summer Saturday afternoon) but the service was good. The portions are abundant, the freshness undeniable and just plain yummy. Enjoy.

We tried 8 spots in 4 days - breakfast at hotel. Steve's rescued an otherwise lackluster experience of looking for memorable meals. We all had the small filet mignon and they were perfect. Even my kids loved theirs. Indeed, I could go on about the cool guitar in the front room and the friendly staff, the local artifacts on the... More

We had our Honeymoon in Avalon in 1976 and went to a restaurant called The Upstairs Place.

This does not seem to be owned by the Catalina Island company making it so much nicer! Food was good - hamburger, steaks and ahi all met expectations.
