A word from Theo's Steak, Sides & Spirits

We are a small, quaint steakhouse, so trying to accommodate tables over 6 guests on weekends becomes a challenge...however, it is a challenge that we are up to! Please make the reservation on line and leave a message in the reservation notes with the actual time and size of your group, as well as direct contact information, and we will contact you directly with our availability.

Diner Reviews
  • "Theo's is usually a very nice restaurant with very good steak dinners. On Saturday evening we went to Theo's and order the steak on the Restaurant Week menu. It was a thin, tough steak even though the three course meal was $35.10 I should have ordered from the regular menu."

  • "Theo's is located within walking distance of the place that we stayed. We were greeted by very friendly staff and had excellent service throughout our entire dining experience. The food was delicious! The shrimp cooked on the salt block was superb! We will definitely visit Theo's when we return."

  • "We must have both made the wrong choice because our food was mediocre at best and our waitress was very bland too. I had baby back ribs that were very tough and my friend had the salmon that was really salty. I guess when you go to a steakhouse you should get a steak but the prices were very high for an a la cart steak dinner and we just weren't in the mood. Too bad for us.... :( They really need to up their game if they want to charge those kind of prices. We may go back for a burger at lunch in the bar!"

  • "This was our first visit to St. Michaels, so we were hesitant about our restaurant choices. Theo's was a perfect place for our anniversary dinner. Our server was attentive and even took a few pictures for us. And the food was absolutely awesome! My wife ordered the cauliflower and after it was brought to the table, the manager showed up and took it away. Our server had let him know it didn't look right, and they gave us a fresh plate. Theo's was very busy, so the noise level was a little high, but well worth it for the food! I definitely will be back to Theo's the next time we are in St. Michaels!!!"

  • "The food was great. Thursday night burger special is very affordable and delicious. The fried oyster appetizer is "to die for"."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "Theo's is our "go to" spot for a quiet, romantic dinner in St. Michaels with consistently great food and friendly staff. They do the "steakhouse" theme well, but the surprise is interesting seafood dishes and a selection of less expensive specials that are always tempting."

  • "This was the 4th year my husband and I have selected Theo's to celebrate Valentine's day during our annual romantic get away weekend to St. Michael's. We love the ambiance, the service and drink/menu selections. A table in the front dining room by the fireplace is our favorite. The french onion soup, mussels and oysters are great starters. The steaks - Prime NY Strip and Filet - are mouthwatering with several cuts and sauce choices (we need to go back to finish sampling each). A good variety of wine choices (both red and white) to fit any budget. From the minute we stepped into the restaurant to closing the door as we left, the service was inviting and friendly. Definitely save room for dessert - they are to die for!"

  • "We've been to Theos numerous times and the food has always been wonderful and the service impeccable. The steaks are prime cut and cooked to perfection. My husband loves the brussel sprouts but my favorite is the mac and cheese. It's even better than what my Momma used to make and that's saying something. Would highly recommend Theos whenever you're in St Michael's; just be sure to make a reservation because they're always busy."

  • "It was our 20th anniversary and we had an outstanding evening."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "All in all, it was a wonderful dining experience. The food was on par with other higher end restaurants that I've been to. The angus steaks were tender, juicy and had good flavour. Their house steak sauces were excellent as well. We had their salt block seared beef as an appetizer and that was something special. It comes to the table with 8 pieces of rare tenderloin searing on a 500 degree block of salt and you finish cooking it to your preference. The ambiance is pleasant as well. Dimly lit and in set in what appears to be a retrofitted St. Michaels home. It is a cozy atmosphere. The price, for an Angus steak dinner w/ sides is $50/person; $75 if you got Prime. One complaint, ice cream was icy; as if it had thawed and been refrozen."

  • "We went with another couple to celebrate my husband's birthday and had a great evening. Food was delicious and the service was perfect and just the right tone for a low key but fun celebration."

  • "Good food, moderate cost. excellent service. Some customers too noisy at tables."
    Dined on 1/26/2014
  • "Okay, I have been to Theo's many times. We are locals. Having said that, the last couple of ties we went we were a bit disappointed. Either the food was off or the service was off, or both. Not horribly, just below what we had come to expect. I was a bit nervous to take our good friends there. The are both CIA trained chefs! Well, did Theo's ever pick a perfect time to knock it out of the park! The service was so good I thought they may have the wrong table! Not 5 minutes after we sat down, they brought a special appetizer to the table, compliments of the bartender , who "knows" us. "Happy New Year and welcome back. Great to see you!" It just got better and better from there! Blown away! Cant wait to go back!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "When we arrived, we were asked to wait about 10 minutes, even though we had reservations. After we were seated, our waiter took our drink orders, but we waited 30 minutes for the cocktails. When we asked, we were told the bartender makes every drink perfectly! (He needs to learn to make them efficiently as well.) We ordered our dinners as soon as the drinks arrived, and I am very sorry to say that it took more than an hour to get our meals! Again, we asked, and later, we complained. It was always, "They'll be right out." Our reservations were for 7:45, and we finally got our meals at 9:45. The food was good, but there was no excuse for the slow service, despite our cheerful waiter's spin. Disappointing, indeed."

  • "Great place to dine in St. Michael's, MD. Food and Service is OUTSTANDING!. First time there for New Year's eve and was pleasantly surprised. Food selection was exceptional. Prices are reasonable and small dining rooms are great for romantic atmosphere. Restaurant areas are clean with modern table settings. Highly recommend this place if you are in the St. Michael's MD area and are looking for something above the "crabs and beer" atmosphere."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "Excellent food and quaint atmosphere. My husband and I came on a date thinking it wasn't child friendly. But when we arrived, children were there. Nice to know so when we want to eat at Theo's again we can take our son. The rooms were filled with couples and even large families. Yet, it wasn't loud and was incredibly comfortable. Melt in your mouth steak was served. They are not kidding with the "For 2 Sides". Would have been in heaven with just the twice baked potato but wanted to make sure every bit of the filet was enjoyed. All was enjoyed - from the appetizers to the wine to the main course to the sides. Next time room will be made for dessert."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "Excellent steak house, the sides were better than we have seen at places such as the Capital Grill. Service was particularly excellent. Very attentive. Smaller room led to more quiet ambiance."
    Dined on 12/27/2013
  • "We had an enjoyable dinner with friends and as always the service was first-rate. However, the quality of the steaks (NY Strips) that my wife and I ordered was simply not that special, especially for the price. At $37 apiece ala carte, the quality of these "not prime but still choice" steaks was disappointing. The appetizers and sides were fine, but there needs to be either an improvement in the quality of the meat or a reduction in the price, or both."
    Dined on 12/28/2013
  • "The food is incredible.Because the filet mignons are cooked to preference and perfection, anticipate a more lengthy stay. We had 2 preteens this time.They were good, but getting a little antsy by the time the entrees were served. The vegetables are just fantastic. I really like the fact that servings of veggies are for 2. My vegetarian granddaughter had more than enough food . Try to leave some room for dessert"
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "A group of four went there one being a vegetarian and they were able to accommodate us all with our different tastes. Service was excellent and served us right on time with our reservation. Presentation was excellent and with a smile. Wine by glass choice was also positive. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a nice dinner in a steakhouse atmosphere."
    Dined on 12/26/2013
  • "The restaurant works well for both a quiet dinner for two or for a group out for an evening of celebration. We have dined there well over 20 times in the last two years and have always been pleased. The rooms have a warm ambience, the menu always has something new and the cocktails are inventive. Bill, Harley, Audrey and Laura make it the closest thing to CHEERS on the Eastern Shore. The steak selection is second to none and the oyster nights are the best part of winter. The appetizers are unique and served with a flair. Go with a smile and you won't be disappointed; It's the best addition to St Michaels in over 30 years."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "Fabulous steaks and salads as always, plus great comfort food like calves liver, sitting by the fireplace..... Some interesting wines by the glass .....Try Bill's Triple Berry Cosmopolitan for a real cocktail treat!"
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "We enjoyed a quiet quick getaway and found this gem of a resturant. We waited for our table and loved the energy from the bar. When seated in the dining area in front of the fire place it added the finally touches to a suprise proposal. Dinner was excellent the steak, shrimp and grits, wine, and sides were the best. We ate so much there was no room for dessert. Steak cooked to perfection and tender Shrimp and grits were the best I've ever eaten Will definately return to Theo's and Harbour Inn and Spa."
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "The prices reflected that of a high end steakhouse. The service, portion sizes, and ambiance, however did not. The food was good-I would easily recommend this place if their prices were 30-40% lower. Expect to pay $65-95 a head after all is said and done. The menu, like most high end steakhouses, is primarily a la carte. But beginning your plate with a steak that ranges from $40-95 makes you immediately look around and wonder where you are. It may be the lack of competition in St. Mike's that allows Theo's to believe they can pass as a Morton's or Bobby Van's. but unless you are dying for a steak (in which case, drive the extra 45 mins to Annapolis) I would recommend a different establishment for dinner when in St. Mike's"
    Dined on 12/7/2013
  • "Theo's has evolved into one of out top three restaurants of all time. A talented chef who never rests on past achievements and a varying menu with a terrific wait staff (attentive but unobtrusive). Eating here is like dining at a friend's home. Employees greet you by name, always have recommendations on hand (both cocktails and food) and always seem genuinely happy to see you. This a great place for a special dinner or a place to go when you just need a break! A little on the expensive side ($100+) for cocktails dinner and dessert, but the worth the price for a relaxing evening of just being pampered. Steaks are prime and cooked to perfection. The seafood is always fresh. This is not a restaurant to take small children."
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "Theo's never disappoints. This was our third time dining at the restaurant and we couldn't have been happier. Service was prompt but did not rush, the food was outstanding, and the cocktails were superb. We sat in the upstairs area which was warm, cozy and quiet (but not too quiet) - perfect for conversation. Theo's is certainly pricey, but for a special occasion (in this case my father-in-law's 60th birthday), it hits the mark."

  • "We celebrated my parents' 50th anniversary here last year and their 51st this year. Our server from last year remembered us when we walked in - how lovely! We happened upon a couple who blew my parents away - they have been married for 64 years! We sent them glasses of prosecco and had a lovely chat with them and they love Theo's as much as we do. The staff - the food - all perfectly wonderful! A favorite for us in St. Michael's. We love their sister restaurant next door, Ava's, just as well but it is always packed! Open Table is wonderfully convenient for getting us a reservation at Theo's!"
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "The food is exceptional . The quality of the ingredients is out of this world. The service is impeccable. I love the way the server has you cut into your meat while he/she is still there to see if it was cooked to your liking. My husband and I have been there several times. This is the only high-end restaurant we've been to where we've walked out afterwards and thought, "We got our money's worth.""

  • "We are locals. The last two times we have gone and sat in the dining room the experience was sub par. Sat upstairs. Slow service but friendly. Got drinks, the waited 50 minutes for food. One burger overlooked, steak tip salad overdressed and steak tough. Ai tuna was good but small portion. Fish and chips very nice as were the Brussel sprouts. Pretty good, but was hoping for better , as the last time was just off too. When we sit in the bar the food seems better and service quick. Maybe we will just stick with that. Reservations a must. Sister establishment, Ava's is always a winner, so we are disappointed ."

  • "Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! Outside of being a bit pricey compared to other al a carte Steak Houses that maybe serve Prime cuts as their only cut (and there are not many of those fyi), this place is fantastic. They offer a choice or Prime vs. Choice cuts, but that is not a negative. I had the regular Ribeye with the Butter De Paris topping, and it was to die for. My wife had the filet, and it was seared perfect. Probably one of the best cuts, and properly seared/cooked steak dinners we have had in quite some time. Reservations are a MUST for Thursday to Sunday dining. We are new locals to the St. Michael's area and now I can say I'm in trouble with a Steak House like this only minutes away... the pocket book is going to be sore."

  • "great spot to catch up with an old friend over great wine and meal--and had wonderful live music that caused us to hang out and meet locals."
    Dined on 11/21/2013
  • "Nothing about Theo's justified the price -- $95 for a simple meal for 2. Escargot demand garlic. In the snails, not just on the bread that accompany them. The breading on the fried oysters overwhelmed any taste the oysters may have had, and the accompanying cocktail sauce gave a new definition to bland. Making Mac and Cheese with tortellini is a nice idea but the tortellini look like calamari in the dish which is rather off-putting. With neither our appetizers nor our mains did our food come out at the same time. The décor of the upstairs room mirrored the flavor of the cocktail sauce -- bland. On the plus side, the wedge salad was really good."

  • "If you are used to going out to high-end steak houses in DC or elsewhere, then you may be disappointed with Theos. The steaks we ordered were all good, but not great. However, the prices are a little on the high side. My husbands steak was done too well, while my friend's steak wasn't well done enough. The service was ok. She was pleasant, but never came around to ask us about our meals after we started eating them. She was a little slow with the drinks too."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "What a wonderful evening. Our dinner at Theo's start with the award-winning oyster stew which Harley( Head Chef) had just received this award from last weeks St. Michaels Oyster festival, which is one of the largest attended event of its kind on the Eastern shore. Our food was prepared to perfection and the wine was paired perfectly with the suggestions of Audrey Noyes who is always very professional and efficient. Our Washington,D.C. guest were highly complementary and very impressed with the food and service. Keep up the great work Bill , Harley and Audrey !!"

  • "This was my first visit to St. Michael's and I just picked Theo's based on the reviews on Open Table. Very glad I did! It's a very intimate space, upscale without being fancy or uncomfortable. The food was all delicious, although the port wine sauce on the cheese fries had very little flavor. I ordered an old fashioned, and it was made with these amazing dark cherries they marinate themselves. It was an expensive meal (probably because I had three cocktails!) but I look forward to going back."
