Steve & Cookie's By the Bay
We love the food at SteveWe love the food at Steve and Cookies. We love the service also. We hate the noise level! Especially with live music playing as well. That would be a really nice touch, but without the owners doing anything to muffle the noise level, the music is just annoying.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ambience and Wonderful FoodSteve and Cookie's provides great food in an extremely pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. The wine list was very good. Live music was provided via a piano and stand-up bass. The service was exceptional. Our waitress was on top of everything and extremely accommodating. Also, if available, the blueberry pie is a restaurant speciality and extremely delicious.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways memorableWe have been dining at Steve & Cookies for years. I can honestly say that we have never had a bad meal. The double stuffed pork chop, and the boulliabasie (sp?)are the best. The deserts are just great. I have traveled allot and have eaten at numerous restaurants througout the U.S. and I can say Steve & Cookies is one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The service is great. Cookie takes a personal interest in speaking with her diners by visiting the tables. I recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best restaurant for dinner.Too many visits, but can't stay away. Food is aways great & high quality. This restaurant is a wonderful place to take guests and know that they will have a wonderful meal. It also is enjoyable when you listen to the live music they provide daily.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA very enjoyable experienceMy husband and I visited Steve & Cookie's for our anniversary. The Lobster and Macaroni & Cheese appetizer was to die for and dinner portions were generous. A very enjoyable experience.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a PleasureI have eaten at Steve and Cookies many times. For special Birthdays and romantic dinners and just a good time. I have been there with a group for birthdays and we all had an awesome time, I have found it to be an enjoyable dining experience with wonderful service and Great food and drink. This time I was seated in the back room and just loved it. I especially like this room if it is just the two of you....with a group I have been seated in the front dining area which can be a bit noisy but still a great time. I have never been disappointed in the food or service.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWelcome back from Sandy!!!!Welcome back from Sandy!!!! As always, great food and service. Cookies is there to greet guests and make them feel welcome. An old fashion restaurant that keeps up with the times.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was an excellent mealThis was an excellent meal again! Outstanding! Brought some new customers and they were wowed!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingAlways come back to this wonderful resturant. George a wizzard behind the bar is the consumate professional and always has a wonderful selection of tasty unusual cocktails. Great Beet dish for an appetizer. The Veal Millenaise, served on the bone was outstanding, along with the stuffed pork chop and cowboy steak special. For dessert when available you must have the fresh fruit pies. We had the best blueberry pie ever made with local fruit and very seasonal prepared by the proprietess Cookie, also the flaming crem burle was also wonderful. Great night6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGood experienceIt was a beautiful setting and delicious food! The only downfall was that the table next to us had an issue with their check so our waitress forgot about us for some time. We had no drinks, but I will say that she was very apologetic. Overall it was a great experience! I would highly recommend6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foodOur experience was fine overall. When we checked in the host seemed annoyed that we had a baby with us. She proceeded to inform us that there was no high chair for him and could we hold him. We were in a take it or leave it situation. We brought in his car seat. Fortunately a high chair was found but due to my observance not the host.
Our dinner was very good. Had a pleasant server. We did not allow the host's attitude to interfere with what was mostly a good dining experience.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time hereThis was our first time here and we just loved it !! The food was outstanding and the service was too. We will definitely be back again many times.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't go Wrong!Food & Service impeccable as always! Whether in the Oyster Bar, the
Dining Room or the Piano Bar you can't go wrong.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMShore thingAlways quality food, good service. Excellent oysters and their music on weekends creates a great ambiance.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMStill one of the best, ifStill one of the best, if not the best, restaurant on the island. The duck is superb! Perfectly done outside (crispy) and tender inside. The veal Milanese is to die for. The only "criticism", if you will, is that there is too much food. Apps are too big - salads can feed two or three if they are small eaters. I say this as there was no room for dessert and that is something worth trying! Cookie runs a fab place and I'd highly recommend this restaurant.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent and consistantGreeted and ushered table without delay. Wait staff were attentive but not bothersome. Waiter was well versed inall areas of the offering amd provided well mannered advice when asked. Sushi appitizer was excellent starter and salmon special was revealing but not overwhelmed by its preparation. Staff was also genuinely enthusiastic when they joined in our birthday cellebration at the end of our great night out. But this quality is not surprising, it's been this way from the beginning.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the BestConsistently excellent. Food and service. Bar and piano player. All seasons.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMwe are local and eat therewe are local and eat there once a week. cookie cooks mostly organic and wholesome! In season, her blueberry and peach pie is to die for and desserts are made on premise. she is a wonderful person and also participates in charity events.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMShore supremeAlways a fantastic meal. Little noisy.
Try the short rib dish with noodles.
Blueberry pie was not in season yet however, it
is the best. Say hello to Cookie when you visit.
Perfect views at sunset on the bay in Margate.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT FOOD!!!LOBSTER MAC N CHEESE WAS OUTSTANDING!! SALMON AND CRAB CAKE WAS VERY GOOD AS WELL!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove this placeSteve and Cookie's is one of our absolute favorite restaurants at the shore. We love the ambiance, food, and service. It is a great place to see old friends and have a fantastic meal. The stuffed pork chops are delish and so is the fresh fish and seafood!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the bank roll!Having heard mixed reviews of Steve and Cookies ("overpriced", "good but expensive", "a place to see and be seen"), we were a little apprehensive about whether it would be worth the pretty high priced menu. But it did not disappoint at all. From the very friendly hostess, to our excellent and very attentive waitress, we were thrilled with the service. While the prices were on the high side, it was worth every penny we spent (and we spent quite a few!!!). Both the baby lamb chop appetizer and the halibut special were absolutely delicious (and we have pretty high expectations when it comes to dining out)!!
We will definitely be returning to this restaurant. Be sure to make reservations!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat start to summer of dining.Wonderful seafood dishes, both hot and cold. Very interesting salads,like the heirloom tomato's with goat cheese and a tasty balsamic dressing. We were sorry that the blueberry desert was not availble, but we'll be back.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExperienceIt was our 8th Wedding Anniversary and this was our first time at Steve and Coockie's. The service was great from start to finish, definitely no complaints. As far as the food for the price it could have been better. I probably would rather go to Sage or Ruth's Chris in Ventnor and AC based on the price and food quality. Don't get me wrong the food was ok it was not great or bad, but for the price I expect more. The steak was cooked perfectly, the escarole was great, but like I said the value is not there based on the price.
Overall I would reccomend this restaurant for the ambiance and service.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd Anniversary DinnerFirst time trying this restaurant. Fabulous food! Had mentioned when booking the reservation that it was our 2nd anniversary. Surprising after we declined dessert from being too full a nice variety of bite size desserts came to us with the words Happy Anniversary in chocolate with a candle in the whipped cream. Nice touch and we didn't expect that at all. Highly recommend this restaurant.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest at the shoreMy husband and I try never to eat out at the shore on the weekend as we do not like waiting or crowds but we did dine on Saturday night and our table was ready and the food was delicious. We have eaten here multiple times and the food is always great. It does not matter what you order as everything is good. So just eat what you are in the mood for....even the meatloaf is fantastic! On the weekend the restaurant fills up so it can get quite noisy but that is normal anyplace. Cookie always checks on you to make sure everything is perfect. I have no complaints except it is very hard to get a reservation during the summer and that it can get noisy at times...BUT the food is the best!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for a special gatheringEating dinner at Steve and Cookies was one of the outings that made my annual get together with my brother and sister special. We enjoyed connecting with each other over an amazing meal with fabulous ambiance!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite place to eatOur favorite place to eat @ the shore! Excellent quality as usual. The lobster mac & cheese was a noticeably smaller portion than previous years, but delicious as always with nice size pieces of lobster. The cold seafood combination platter is the best, however I am not a fan of the new vegetable slaw and wish they would go back to the fresh asparagus, no substitutes.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSteve & Cookie's - A Great ChoiceWe enjoyed our dinner @ Steve & Cookie's very much. The food and service were exceptional. We have been enjoying meals there for several years, and would recommend it to anyone.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Oasis by the WaterThis place had excellent customer service from the time we walked in the door. Management and servicer were impecable as well as the ambience which included live music.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayAnother great meal! The cold seafood platter was perfection along with a delicious risotto pea fritter and salad. We enjoyed the energetic atmosphere, friendly service, music and the special touch of a Mother's Day tomato plant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurantOur dinner was fabulous, our waiter was very good and very helpful and the portions very generous.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGem at the BayThis restaurant is wonderful--good food, atmosphere and staff.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticThis place was recommended by a friend and I can't say when I have been more pleased dining out. The service was over the top as they worked together to accommodate our needs and a special thanks to our server Laura. I choose the special Pan Seared seafood and it was cooked to perfection. My dining partners were equally impressed. Though looking forward to the famous blueberry pie, it was not in season yet. The alternative, Banana Cream Pie was the best.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dinner CelebrtionOur party of four had a fabulous time at Steve and Cookie's on Friday night! The food was exceptional - very fresh seafood. The service made the evening all the more special. Thank you for a very memorable birthday.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Margate.Best restaurant in Margate. Consistent. quality food in a classy atmosphere4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSteve & Cookie's is a verySteve & Cookie's is a very popular year-round seashore restaurant, especially on the weekend. It was fortunate that we had an Open Table reservation for 7:30; it is regrettable that we earned no dining points for our reservation!!! The service is attentive, the food is tasty, and the prices are high. It is best not to go on a weekend from May through September. Nevertheless, Steve & Cookie's is a great place in the summer because there is a farmer's market on Thursday mornings in July and August. The homemade blueberry pie is the best dessert during the summer. We are glad that Steve & Cookie's survived Hurricane Sandy.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways consistent with amazingAlways consistent with amazing food and wonderful service.

The music was excellent, classics not overwhelming the setting and food. Lew London is a master of guitar and stringed instruments with a sweet voice and is accompanied by a talented pianist.
Our food was perfect. Really. A rare 5 star award from us. We had bouillabaisse and crab cakes and these were as fine as one could imagine.The beet salad was spot on. Attentive service and comfortable ambiance finish the picture.
