About 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar

In the midwest, "supper club" means a spot where you can not only have a great meal, but a spot that functions as a bit of a social club too - a place to enjoy remarkable food + great company. One of our favorite parts of the night has been watching our customers interact - running into neighbors and friends, meeting up with family, or just enjoying a night out together - it's our own little social club. So we figured what could be more apt than calling ourselves the 100 Steps Supper Club.

The "raw bar" side - well that comes from wanting a nice, traditional oyster bar to belly up to and dive into raw oysters, clams, and other great seafood.

The two meet in our new spot, 100 Steps Supper Club + Raw Bar - welcome!

100 Steps is the a BYO!

My wife and I went for brunch and loved it! The French Toast is the best I've ever had. I will be back for dinner as well!

Top raw bar in the area. I had the lamb and didn’t love it, but the oysters are great as are the mussels and pastas. I think they should have some type of chowder or fish soup on the menu always.

My husband and I celebrated our 3rd Anniversary at 100 Steps. Our bottle of vintage Veuve Clicquot champagne perfectly complimented the 2 dozen west coast oysters. So fresh! Tasted just like the sea.
We could not resist ordering several appetizers. The highlights were the ceviche, duck liver and gnocchi. Although we really enjoyed our entrees, they did not stand out as much as the oysters and apples. But the chocolate cake sure did! With homemade peanut butter ice cream. Yum!

The service was amazing. Our server was knowledgable and made great recommendations. We loved his casual-but-professional approach. And it was extra special when the Chef came out to wish us a Happy Anniversary and to check in on how we liked the food.

The perfect place for a special occasion. We can't wait to go back...so we won't wait until our next Anniversary!

Really awesome place to go eat with friends. The food was top notch, from the oysters selection, to the appetizers (hmm.. pork belly) and the main courses. The ambiance is really fun and in the end, the shock of how inexpensive the whole evening was, was a great finish. Highly recommended.

Date night. We had the raw oysters sampler and pork belly apps, both were delicious. We then split the monkfish special entree which was also really tasty. My date has a dairy allergy so the waiter had the entree side swapped out for a dairy free option which we appreciated. The waiter was very friendly and super accomodating.

We have not dined at 100 steps since it's initial opening. We were hesitant with knowing it has new owners, but everything was perfect. Fantastic service and delicious food. We had the Thursday night prefix menu, husband had the chicken which he said was cooked perfectly, and that's coming from an at home chef who is very critical. I had the mussels in broth with a side of toasted sourdough bread for dipping. Topped it off with coffee ice break and banana pudding topped with salted caramel and a cookie. Yum!

This place is not the same after the new ownership. Portions are smaller and lack that special care and mix of flavored maybe using different quality of ingredients. Even the most famous Parker rolls were overlooked and or not made fresh. It is just not want we are use to as the previous owners out a lot of care into the food. Didn't want to be disappointed but was.

The service was outstanding and the food was very good, but it was very loud. I would recommend if you're in the mood for a party atmosphere. We were there on a Friday night; it might be quieter during the week. Definitely worth a try.

100 Steps has been my favorite restaurant for years. Under the new owners and new chef, this restaurant has been taken to a level I didn't know was possible. Everything is amazing, every single time. We love taking advantage of the extended oyster happy hour and bringing friends to enjoy with us. It takes one meal at 100 Steps to be addicted! The changing menu always makes you feel like you are at a new restaurant every time you go. Last night we had the red snapper crudo which is new to the menu and it was outstanding. We always look forward to dinner and to be welcomed with a smile from Jack. Hands down my favorite restaurant.

Never a bad time when I go to 100 steps, food always top notch along with the whole staff. I brought my parents for the 1st time and they were amazed by how fresh the seafood is. As always oysters and clams along with the grand seafood tower were incredible. I make a point of going here at least twice a month. You can't get a better Raw bar even if your down the shore. They know quality and how to prepare it. If you like oysters and clams I reccomend you try this place. I know I'll be back in a couple of weeks. Keep up the great work always a pleasure to eat at a place where from the bottom of the staff to the top, take pride in what they do.

Fantastic food, cool restaurant, cozy corner table. Unfortunately forgot it was BYOB (doh!) and there was a group of the most loud obnoxious women sitting smack in the middle. So loud and shrill people actually asked to move away from them. The manager should have addressed the noise factor with the loud ladies. Those delicious oysters and buttered rolls couldn't compete.
This is my second visit, and the first was also quite loud- from live music that time. I'll give it another whirl. Maybe pack my own kit to make manhattans and martinis. Those rolls are calling my name. . .

We brought out of town guests for a special dinner. Shared a dozen oysters, loved the charcuterie and cheese plate, pork belly and monk fish of the day. Flourless chocolate cake, banana pudding and ice cream were top desserts. Probable the best overall email I've had at 100 Steps. Service was friendly but not hovering. We are glad to see the new owners are maintaining the great food. We will be back soon!

Been wanting to try this place for quite a while and it did not disappoint. The restaurant is stylish and relaxing. Service was superb. We had a very nice greeting from the owner, and he also checked back in with us to ensure that all was well. The menu is very tempting and I want to go back to try more items. We shared a delicious shrimp appetizer with excellent parker house rolls. I had a dozen (half price) oysters, which were delicious. My husband had a flatiron steak which was very flavorful and cooked perfectly. Would love to return.
