    I am writing this review but please keep in mind that the restaurant has only been open for 6 weeks and needs to work some kinks out still. Restaurant was crowded but we were seated after only a few minutes, this was not however the case of other guests who had the same number in their party but had been there waiting before us. We luckily were seated near a private window near the bar which might have annoyed some guests but with the crowds this was the perfect spot. Server was friendly and attentive but her job was held up by the slowness of the kitchen. Food was all good, especially the tortellini mac n' cheese and onion soup. Steaks were served room temperature but after 1.5 hours, I was not sending it back.

    We had planned to try the fish & chips, but prime rib was the special that night--and, it was special. Both were cooked to order; one rare, the other medium-rare. The portions were very generous and whipped potatoes were a nice accompaniment. Our waitress, Audrey was extremely attentive. The fire provided great ambiance on a chilly autumn night. Now we'll have to come back for those fish & chips!

    Another home run by Chris Agharabi ! With Harley Peet as head chef, Saint Michaels now has yet another finery dining establishment to enjoy! The warm and inviting interior is comfortable, with a casually elegant feel. The antique bar with modern leather seating is the perfect blend of old and new. And then there's the food. Come here for a steak with classic sides like creamed spinach or double baked potato. But there are other finds on this menu. The scallops are a delicious alternative to the veal chop and rib eye, as is the tortellini mac and cheese. A fantastic wine list, well poured cocktails , a caring and well versed staff all contribute to a light hearted and fun night on the town. Bravo Chef Harley!

    Our filets were cooked to order (medium-rare) and tender and the veal chop was generous and well-seasoned. The "sides-for-two" are generous and tasty: all of us have always disliked brussels sprouts until we tried Theo's; we could have eaten a bowlful. Staff are helpful and attentive and honored our Open Table request--Thank you!

  • A Steak House comes to St Michaels
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 10/22/2011
    Theo's has filled a niche in St Michaels where there has not been a traditional steak house of the Morton's or Ruth Chris' variety. Choices of steaks range from filet mignon to 48 oz porterhouse. There are other entree items such as salmon or diver scallops. The crab ball appetizer is a gem. Steaks come with a choice of sauces- butter, bernaise, etc. Decent wine selection by the bottle and glass. The "sides" are ordered separately- include different styles of potato, broccoli, brussel sprouts etc. The salmon entree included twice baked potato and broccoli. There is a bar with high top seating on one side of the restaurant. Main dining room has fireplace and 3 tables and was quiet. There is also a back room w/more tables. Decor a plus.

    For a new restaurant, Theo's performed very well. Service was friendly and informative and the food -- especially the NY Strip and the small filet -- was first rate. Prices are high but for food and service of such good quality, I predict that Theo's will flourish.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 10/8/2011
    Was really hoping that due to the fact that Theo's (who specializes in steaks), would serve a thick, buttery and tasty Filet Mignon, however, the steak that arrived was about 1/2 inch thick and flavorless. Also had the onion rings, house salad and mushrooms with garlic which were all mediocre. Very disappointing, as the neighboring two restaurants that are run by the same owner (Akai and Ava's) are fabulous. The atmosphere of Theo's is beautiful and very comfortable, however.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/7/2011
    Theo's had only been open for business a short time when I had eaten there, however, even in it's "soft opening" I found everything to be up to par. I frequent the other restaurants of the same owner and find them all to be wonderful. The service, decor, and especially the food were all great. Thick cuts of meat and fresh ingredients were the best aspects of the meal. My only criticism would be the portion size of the sides, as well as the sides in general. I'm sure that the Steaks and Chops are the supposed to be the highlight of the meal, but I feel as if there is room for improvement when picking a potato. Fries, mashed, baked, another baked. Why not a sweet potato, or a corn dish as a side. Get a little more creative with the sides...

    I was really looking forward to dining at Theo's, as Chris's other two restauarnts are exceptional. Our evening was fantastic. The filets were of exceptional quality and cooked to perfection!! There aren't many places you can get a good steak at around here, so my hat is off to Theo's! Best of luck and congratulations...I will be a returning customer.
