Recently a national paper stated that the steak in Steve's was one of the best in the USA and I must concur. It was simply tremendous. We had the ribeye and filet mignon, fantastic asparagus and a nice house white. I would say without hesitation the best steak that I have ever tasted and I'm fussy!!! Back next Monday for... More

The food (both steaks and seafood) is truly great! The bar provides good mixed drinks (no short pours here!) and the wine list meets our needs! Steve and his family are 4th generation islanders and really know their stuff!

Really great service. In fact, everyone in Catalina is incredibly warn and welcoming. We had the ultimate martini, ceased salad, ands fresh catch of the day. All excellent - the fish was a tad over cooked but incredibly fresh nevertheless!

This restaurant is good, with a good location, but is not great. IMO they are riding on their reputation. After my dinner, I walked around town and saw better dinners on other plates in the town! I had swordfish with asparagus; the asparagus was warm on the outside, cold on the inside. No big deal, but its that kind of... More

Steve's Steakhouse was an excellent choice on our latest trip to Catalina Islands. They have a wonderful view of the beach and was extremely attentive.

A friend and I had dinner at Steve's on my birthday. The island wasn't super busy, but we went in earlier and booked a table by the window. Excellent service. Very good wine suggestion. I don't usually do dessert, but my friend ordered Key Lime pie and it was delicious. I was in the mood for a burger, which was... More

We decided to stop in for dinner upon the recommendation of our hotel. Very glad we did. The food was very good, our service was spot on, and the view was perfect for people watching and looking out on the harbor.

We had a fantastic dinner here on Tuesday night. Absolutely no complaints here. However, for those in a rush, remember, it's island time here. Put your phone away, enjoy your food, not just a picture of it. Feel the breeze from the ocean, relax for a bit. I had the filet mignon with lobster, and my honey had the new... More
