The oysters as well as the rest of our meal was memorable in a good sense. I had the seafood cold plate. Each item, shrimp, lobster, and crab cake was cooked to my liking and as everyone knows I'm very picky. The service was good...and people started coming in a opening time.More

Steve and Cookies is one of our favorite restaurants in the state. The food and ambiance are always excellent. It is unfortunate that that this year we were not able to dine indoors due to the pandemic; however, last night we ordered take out. As...expected, everything we ordered was excellent. What prompts me to write this review was the outstanding customer service provided by Kayla. I neglected to have my credit card handy when placing the order and she waited patiently for me to retrieve it. It woukd have been very easy for her to simply say call back later. Instead, she handled my mistake with courtesy and professionalism. The point of this review is to highlight that the service at Steve and Cookies is at the same high kevel as the food and ambiance. Thank you Kayla for making our take out meal almost as special as being there.More

We decided to try Steve and Cookie's Take-out and I can't praise it enough. Calling in was the only hard part. It took a while to get through but then we ordered dinner for 15 and gave the pickup time we wanted. We arrived at...their parking lot and gave the name to an attendant. Five bags were carried out to the trunk by masked servers. I had the wonderful tomato salad, part of a shrimp cocktail, a crabcake and part of a blueberry pie, brownie pie, and Margate Beach pie. I should be deeply ashamed. My extended family all loved everything. It's a must visit on every trip. And they've opened an area for outdoor dining while indoor dining is still not permitted.More

They really have it all down: reception, waitstaff and busing to food and wine. The menu is broad enough to suit anyone's taste, and all of our meals were perfect. Short Ribs, Cowboy steak, Lobster, Double Pork, interesting salds and appetizers. The wine list is...good although I did not enjoy our pick and noise level can get out of hand despite major sound deadening.More

Funny how often we now go here! It was a Saturday night and my wife Linda and I decided to get really dressed up. Where to go. No reservation. Decided and trying to get to Steve and Cookies early and secure two seats at the...bar. It opens at 5 o’clock. We arrived about ten minutes to five. Walked in and almost all seats were gone. Except for a few at the back end. Great. Ordered a couple martinis from Frank and the George’s pineapple/grapefruit martinis were terrific. We decided to have a bite at the bar because they were sold out. Had apps and shrimp cocktail and it was super. Frank was terrific and the food was excellent but definitely get the special martinis. Exquisite.More

I can not say enough good things about this restaurant. We had an amazing meal, wonderful service and the ambiance was just lovely. If you are coming from nearby, I would suggest an Uber. We were in AC and it was a quick and reasonable...rate. It beats trying to find parking on a crummy night. You will not be disappointed. We will be back! Oh...how can I forget! They have the cutest dessert. They offer a "taste" of something. I love dessert. I always leave room but the food was so delicious I was really full. I had a "taste" of pecan pie which was just enough. Loved it!More
