Their breakfast items are a cut above restaurant breakfasts at other places. And their specials are more than special. If you're lucky enough to be there when they have chile rellenos, order them!

In Helena for three days on business. Steve's was recommended by the hotel we were staying at. Turned out to be a great recommendation: locally roasted coffee (I am a coffee snob from Portland Oregon ), good food, very friendly staff - would highly recommend

My group of 7 were reasonably quickly seated. The restaurant was crowded because a Franklin Graham Rally had just concluded. It is ADA. The staff was friendly & our waitress outstanding. Our orders were taken quickly & the food was delivered in a reasonable time frame. The food was good and portions large.

Was told to try Steve's and was not disappointed. Had to wait because of a large event in town. The staff is friendly and the food was good. Breakfast served all day. I had biscuits and gravy and it was delicious.

Food and service were very good! The ham and cheese omelet was excellent as were the pancakes and hash browns! Would definitely return when back in the area.

We have children and grandchildren in the area so get to Steve's multiple times a year. Have probably eaten there thirty times. Everything I have ever had is good. I often get the veggie omelette which is STUFFED with veggies and is never dried out. Oatmeal is good, too. My husband loves their homemade sausage. All ingredients are fresh. Yes,... More

Stevens is a good restaurant for breakfast or lunch but it is not the best restaurant in Helena. If you like big portions of fattening food you will enjoy Steves. The staff is very professional but the food is only slightly above average. On the other hand breakfast in Helena is a challenge.

For traditional breakfast food Steve's cannot be beat. Great service, good quality ingredients and standard breakfast joint atmosphere. Great place to take the kids.

Thank JiggsHelenaMT
