Came to Steve's key lime pie shop as we had read reviews about it before we arrived in Brooklyn. We were both excited to try them. My average rating comes down to a few things:- A) the key lime pie needed a bit more lime B) the pie itself was not what I expected. I expected more of a mouse... More

Delicious pie in a charming authentic setting. There are tables outside and a park with a view of Lady Liberty right next door. If you are in Red Hook and like pie, try this place.

A refreshing end to a nice meal...Frozen key lime pie (not too tart) or vanilla raspberry were delicious! May seem a bit pricey at $7 a pie but definitely worth it! My family and I sat in the park and enjoyed while watching the sailboats and cruise ships go by. A sun filled relaxing Sunday, celebrating a birthday with the... More

Although Steve's is not open on Mondays, as Yelp says, I arrived and I assume it was Steve, just happened to be outside at the picnic tables chatting with people and after seeing me hover for a while, asked if I was waiting on the store to open. Well yes, of course I was, so he was so kind to... More

I have enjoyed Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies and Swingles over several visits to New York and the products are consistently excellent. I will be in Brooklyn again soon so I am relishing the possibility of tucking into one of the new Swingle flavours, possibly the chilli? I've heard that mini-Swingles are on the menu now, which means I will... More

Last summer, while on vacation in Brooklyn we saw this place but it was closed. We had promised ourselves that if we would go back we would give it a try. We did go back! We did give it a try. The pies are very tasty and sweet. The pies are a little expensive but we are happy to have... More

Pretty cool this place has survived all these years. The reason is their ONE product, key lime pie is iconic! Go buy one, you'll be happy.

This little gem is in waking distance of the Redhook cruise terminal. We walked there on our turnaround day. Super fresh and very friendly staff.

The limonade was just wonderful. A little on the pricey side at $3.50 but on a hot day it is very much worth it. It is so tangy and refreshing and it is nice to take the drink and walk down to the beach area in the park and relax. I heard some one say the pies were really good... More

Wholesale bakery with small retail presence, take out only with benches outside for the warmer weather. Specializing in key lime pie, period. Proudly one of only two commercial bakeries in the US juicing fresh key limes in-house. In addition to fresh daily baked key lime pies, we also offer our Swingle, a frozen chocolate-dipped key lime tart upon a stick; The Classic, The Raspberry, The Raspberry Blonde and the La Victoria.
