Seafood
100 Steps Kitchen + Raw Bar is 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.

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 Kitchen + Raw Bar - welcome!

100 Steps is a BYO!

    Overall nice restaurant. However, tables are on top of each other. Food was good - but not great. Pork belly was tough. Pork chop slightly over done. Braziano was petit portion vs. price. With all of the other local choices - OHS did not blow me away.

    Our night was one of the best restraint experiences we have had in years. The service, ambiance and food were all 5 star. We kept ordering because everything was so incredible that we wanted to try everything. Our friend has a dietary restriction and the chef made her a custom meal. She was not only so surprised they would do it as many places cannot she said it was delicious and it made her week! We didn’t even ask we just mentioned her restriction and it was offered. They made my birthday night one to remember.

    Our main dish mussel pot was cancelled for the reason that kitchen was unable to prepare it. It was 9 pm, 40 mins after we ordered it. We simply left the restaurant without placing new orders or complaining because that would just be waste of more time. Not the fault of servants, but overall management.

    100 Steps Kitchen + Raw BarResponded on June 26, 2022Good afternoon, My apologies for running out of the Mussel pot, it's one of our most popular dishes, and yesterday we sold more than usual. We order our seafood daily so it's always fresh. When we run low, we do notify our servers and also put a count in our computers. I wish you said something to us last night. Again sorry for any inconvenience!

    Excellent night out. They have branched out from mostly seafood to a mix of seafood, their signature oysters, their Parker House Rolls, with lamb, beef, and pork choices, and a pasta dish. A fabulous gourmet night out in Cranford.

It was our anniversary & we were treated to a sinful & scrumptious dessert. Thank you Jack ! We will definitely be back!

    Our new favorite restaurant in the area! We drove from the south to meet our parents there and what a great choice we made! Oysters were some of the best I’ve ever had in my life, and the special of the evening- the cod- was perfection! Everyone enjoyed the dinner, the Service was impeccable, and the ambience was beautiful!

    This was our second time dining at 100 Steps and it didn’t disappoint again. The oysters were fresh and tasty, the pork chop (per my husband) was one of the best he’s ever had and the cod catch of the day dish was delicious and light. We’ll definitely be back!
