I have had the culinary pleasure of eating at Stephen's a number of times over the years. The quality of the food and the precise and expert way that the food is cooked is unsurpassed. The chief (Steve) has a biology background so the quality...More

We have been many times. It is a favorite for us. Always reliable for a special dinner or an easy night out. The appetizers and entrees are very creative. Good wine list too. If you love seafood, you must give this place a try.
