I love coming here on a Friday night! They have a bar menu and delicious cocktails. I love the Steven's sampler. You pick 3 appetizers for approximately $30.

Steaks, fish, chicken picatta, wedge salads and the best crab Brie soup. It was all good. Start with the coconut shrimp. Waiter was great. Noise level was good, easy to talk.

If you are looking to spend a lot of money and not eat an impressive tasting dinner then this is the place to be!!! My husband had Filet Mignon with mashed potatoes. The steak was mediocre, and the mashed potatoes tasted like the chef took a plain potato and smashed it on the plate and did not condiment it. My Beef Wellington was flavorless. The meat seemed more well done than medium, and the breading in the meat was plain and did not taste great. The sauce had a mustard color to it, but again, it was very flavorless. My baked potato had rock hard butter on top. Not impressed. If I lived in the area I would never go there again.

We chose this restaurant because my son was looking forward to a steak dinner in order to celebrate his graduation from Navy Boot Camp. Everything was going rather smoothly until our steaks were served (party of 4). They were ALL overcooked....soooo disappointing. We could have sent them back and waited, but we had already been waiting well over an hour to get to that point, so chose to simply bring it to the attention of management. We were offered credits which amounted to approx. $40. off our bill. This was okay since we did finish at least three quarters of our meal due to the fact that it was tender, even if overcooked, but the experience was a serious letdown. The table next to ours had the same problem. We were told that the normal chef was not there that night (on a very busy Friday). It simply made me feel like I picked the wrong night to dine there. After all, it's the restaurant's reputation on the line, not the backup cook.

If we visited this area again, I’m not sure we would take the chance to try it again, which is unfortunate, especially since everything else we ordered was very good. If the steaks had been cooked properly, I would have definitely, without a doubt, given Stevens 5 stars.

Hello Cricket59. Thank you for letting us know we missed the mark on your Steaks. We take such issues very seriously. I agree that you should not have been given an excuse. It is our issue not yours. You are supposed to simply enjoy your experience regardless of what is going on behind the scenes. If you do decide to give us another shot give me a call to set up a reservation and I will make sure you are well taken care of. Thanks for your time.
