“Fun dinner”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

The food and drinks were great! The service was good and even though the place was crowded our drinks and meals were served promptly and with apparent ease. Don't miss the Key Lime Pie!

Dear Guest,

Please accept my sincerest apologies that you did not receive the proper service that you as our guest deserve. Please know that your experience is not in anyway the normal service provided at Steve's Steakhouse. I apologize that your server was not attentive to you and make no excuses, however, as a restaurant owner, I do have to take into consideration that my team are human and that occasionally they might drop the ball so to speak, which they did in your instance. It would help me if you had included the name of your server in your review so I could address the situation one-on-one with them as well as monitor their performance in the future. Again, I do apologize and thank you for taking the time to write a review. I hope your overall visit to Catalina Island was enjoyable and that you will visit again soon.

Sincerely,

Steve and Margaret Bray and our family at Steve's Steakhouse

“Anaversary night.”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

The window seat provides great people watching and sunset. Steaks were done perfectly. Two other tables were celebrating anaversaries too. That was fun. Your memories are the only things you can take with you.

“Great dinner ”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

Had out last island dinner here. Yes, it is a bit on the expensive side but that is a known before walking in the door. The waitstaff was attentive. Even though we did not have reservations, we had a quiet table overlooking the harbor. We opted for the specials. I had the sea bass and he had the 22 oz. porterhouse. Sides are abundant in choice... Asparagus, steamed vegetables, baked potato, garlic mashed potato, rice pilaf (I may have missed some). They also served cognac, which many establishments we visited did not. We finished our meal with an amazing key lime pie.
