We went to see Olivia Newton John at the Newberry Opera House and went to Steven W's Bistro to eat before the performance. Most diners, including us, were late for our reservations due to a wreck on the interstate.The restaurant is in an old shop across from the opera house. Pleasant atmosphere. Two in our party had a pasta dish which they said was excellent. I had the crab cakes appetizer and soup, which were well-prepared and tasty. We had to wait a bit, but that was probably because everyone was running behind, but they got us out in plenty of time for the performance. I thought the prices were extremely reasonable. Service was good, but not terribly attentive as the staff was really stretched out trying to get all the late arrivals out in time for the performance. We will go back.

We have been to Steven W's a couple of times, and everytime we have had a fantastic time. This was my husband's birthday and I pre ordered their dessert medley. WONDERFUL. Our meal was excellent, atmosphere relaxed but still special. Would recommend it. Worth the 40 minute drive.

Driving thru South Carolina on a routine trip to the coast, my husband and I wanted to stop for dinner close to Columbia. We found Steven W's, in the historic district of Newberry online, and decided to stop. We we're greeted by a very outgoing waitress, seated immediately, offered menus, a drink, and told of the dinner specials. Everything we ordered was delicious, from the Bang Bang Shrimp and Crab Wonton appetizers to our entrees, Cajun Scallop and Shrimp Fettucini and Potato Crusted Salmon (the salmon came with a side veggie of lima beans which is unusual for a restaurant, but one of my favs), we unfortunately didn't leave room for dessert. Being interested in historical buildings we happened to ask our waitress if she knew the history of this particular building, and she was just as knowledgable with the building as she was with the menu. The next time we have the chance, we're not only planning on dining here again, we on staying in town and visiting this lovely location; which has the quaintness and hospitality of Mayberry RFD.
