Historic town that made me get off the highway, glad I did. Googled some restaurants and this place caught my eye. It sounded great. Ordered Pecan encrusted chicken with blackberry sauce and Salmon made with locally grown mushrooms and sauce, both dishes were fantastic. Pipped potato stack was great with the vegetables. Plated perfectly. Highly recommended! Loved it!

This is a charming restaurant located near the historic Opera House. Food was excellent as was the service. Servers were able to meet specific requests without a problem. Little plates were more than enough for the average appetite.

The food was excellent in the atmosphere felt like a white linen 40 years ago. The wait staff did an amazing job it was very quick and fast but yet not rushed. I would visit this place many more times and I do encourage you to get the steak or the fillet with crab cake.

Great place to eat and wonderful atmosphere. Upscale restaurant but very reasonable prices for excellent food. The service is always outstanding. I am a local resident. My wife and I dine here on special occasions and I always take customers here. Very impressive to everyone.

We ate here on a Thursday when there was very little happening in town, so the restaurant was almost empty. Regardless, they had wonderful music the entire evening. We did ask them to turn down the volume a bit because we wanted to visit with our guest and they were very accommodating. The food was excellent and the service was... More

Before seeing the Charlie Daniels Band at the Opera House last December, we made reservations to have dinner at Steven W's before the show. I have had the pleasure to dine there about 10 times over the prior couple of years for business dinners, often with groups of 10 or more and have never been disappointed. This particular evening the... More

We were there for a Monday dinner. They're only open in Moday if there's a play at the theater. The four of us each had a different meat for our meal .... Pork, halibut, filet, chicken. We all enjoyed outperform meal. The only complaint I had was my Pecan-crusted Chicken was a little on the tough side. The service was... More

Had heard wonderful things about this restaurant; however, our experience was lack of taste and overpriced. The staff seem not to have time to serve us although we were only one of three tables in the restaurant. We won't be back.

Can't say it was haute cuisine or a bargain, but it was completely acceptable in both categories and a short walk to the Opera House.

First to know - I spent my birthday dinner alone and dared to touch my cellphone. It was a package dinner with Newberry Opera House. Greeted at door - shown up at 5:30 pm start. A seat was selected along the balcony and espresso maker. Ok - not picky. Given a fixed menu agreed upon for $40. Selected salad with... More
