Impromptu evening out downtown Newberry. I am a creature of habit and in all my years of living in Newberry, I have never dined here. So we decided we would give it a try. The soft shell crab appetizer was good. Perfect crisp batter and great caper-lemon sauce. Next was a crab and corn chowder, when you say chowder you... More

Steven W’s is a white tablecloth, upscale-trending restaurant with lots of ambiance, delicious food and a well-trained wait staff. We very much enjoyed our evening meal, which featured a chicken quesadilla appetizer ($8), pecan crusted chicken ($16) and an almond basket dessert. My wife said the latter was possibly the best dessert she’s had in recent years, and I agree... More

I had the flounder again and my wife had the crab cake appetizer and a Cesar salad and the chocolate cake. As usual all were excellent! I recommend Steven W's as the best place to eat if you are in Newberry! Prices are reasonable, service is excellent and the food is great!

We dined at Steven W"s last night, and I cannot say enough about how perfect everything was. Our server was friendly, helpful, professional, and attentive. The food was exceptional, from the crab cakes to the shrimp with Tasso ham, to the prime rib, to the pecan chicken. We were all raving! And the bread, yum! Their special soup was a... More

In town overnight with prior intention to dine at Stephen W's based on a recommendation of family who have attended events at the Opera House. We were not disappointed. The food was very good. The Mahi-Mahi-Mahi was excellent. The waitress recommended her favorite desert of fruit and ice cream in an almond bowl (made in house) with caramel and chocolate... More

White table clothes, servers in ties, great ambiance. Food was delicious. Hubby said the flounder was incredible. Great celebration place. Shorts, t shirts and even Jeans may be out of place

Marvelous all the way around! My Cajun Shrimp & Scallop Fettuccini with snow peas was perfect. The shrimp and scallops were large and sauteed just right; the pasta was well prepared and the dish was delicious. The potato encrusted salmon was done extremely well and the taste was divine. Can't say enough about this restaurant. A must-do when in Newberry.

Staying across the street at the wonderful Hampton Inn in Newberry so this was perfect for us after a long ride here to escape the hurricane. Great waiter and great food! I recommend the desserts especially the praline shell with ice cream and fruit. I was able to cut the filet with my butter knife!
