Tom Frank, owner is proud to introduce State Street Steak & Seafood in historic Doylestown, Pa. The building formerly known as The Knight House has been owned by Tom since 2005 and during that time steadily rose in stature as the premier local dining destination. Tom's passion for great food and atmosphere led him to renovating this historic building to become Street Steak & Seafood. The new renovation has a unique, casual elegance showcasing Fine Steaks and Fresh Seafood. Some of it's features include our upstairs dining room with cozy cocktail-style banquettes for four and views of the al fresco courtyard below as well as two intimate bars featuring hand-crafted cocktails. We look forward to impressing you with a night to remember.

Wife and I dined here on and enjoyed our meal and service. The food was a tad saltier than we’d like, but definitely not to the point where we couldn’t eat and enjoy it. Had their crab cake appetizer, prime rib (thursday special), and crab stuffed lobster tail. everything was very well prepared. The jicama slaw was different and we enjoyed it very much. Our server was very calm and attentive. We will be back!

For the price the food was sub par. My daughter ordered the grilled Salmon and it was very dry. She couldn't eat it No sauce or spices just Salmon and mashed potatoes. My daughter and i had surf and turf. Meals were not very hot when we received them. Steak was ok i ordered medium and not a lot of pink. Again no flavor to the meat very bland and the lobster was tough, cooked a little to much. My other daughter used A1 for her steak was fine. My husband had the pasta and his was fine. For a $400 dollar dinner for the family it was not worth it. Our waitress was great very nice but for the money I have to say not worth it.

We had lobster bisque, oysters rockefeller, filet mignon and rice pudding for dessert. The quality of the food overall was very good. The steak was excellent. If you like rice pudding it was darn good too. I do think that prices are a little high but thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the service was very good also.

Will definitely dine here again.

This was our first visit to State Street Steak and Seafood on Valentine’s Day. We aren’t familiar with the area and we were running a little late. After meeting our waitress Nicoline, we immediately began to feel as though we were not welcome to this establishment. Neither one of us drink alcohol but felt pressured from the waitress to order a cocktail. I ordered a glass of “Pinot Gri” as I called it at which point Nicoline responded, ‘we do not have Pinot Gri but we do carry Pinot Grigio...”. Ok, I got your number now smartass....smh. Nicoline wasn’t very helpful at recommending dishes nor was she very friendly. After we ate our dinner we both ordered dessert. While serving us the dessert she informed us that the next couple was waiting for our table, but not to feel rushed.... Ok, now I feel rushed. And finally when Nicoline returned with my credit card to sign for the bill, she pointed out that she had to double check the name on the card because it was in my name (the female) and not in my boyfriends name, as her last condescending comment of the night! Thank you, Nicoline, for the memorable Valentines Day... I’ll be sure to tell everyone about our experience at State Street Steak and Seafood. Meanwhile, you may want to check yourself and your attitude. If you don’t like your job, move into a different career. You’re obviously burnt out and miserable having to work Valentine’s Day. The crab cakes and creme brûlée were delicious, thanks to the chef! Service was condescending and disrespectful.

Responded on February 18, 2020

Thank you for your feedback. We take all of our customers comments very seriously. I believe this is just a misunderstanding. Pinot Gri is a varietal of wine but one we do not carry. Nicoline was pointing out that we do not carry that varietal of wine but we do carry pinot grigio. We would love to speak to you about your visit so we can rectify all concerns. Please email us at admin@96statecom. Thank you for your business and we hope you will give us another chance.

We had a party of four. We had 4 appetizers brussel sprouts, steak tacos, wedge salad and caesar salad with anchovies. All was delish! We had a bottle of white wine from New Zealand and it was delish too. Then we had the scallop crab combo with pasta (yum), cowboy steak and salmon. All was done perfectly. Highly recommend the upstairs area. Beautiful and comfortable.

I ordered a grilled scallop platter on steamed spinach due to a food allergy to cream/milk based sauces.

The original meal was scallops and pasta with a tomato cream sauce.

I was told this was possible.

My meal was delivered: scallops with tomato and cream sauce, and severed over raw spinach.

I was unable to return the meal because no on came back to check on it in a timely manner.

Steaks severe at the table had no flavor.

Fried calamari was dry, and calamari were very small.

Another person ordered salmon: it was so dry it was less than a quarter inch thick.

This was a birthday celebration, and while our waitress was very kind, the food and experience were poor.

Very unexpected for a new restaurant in Doylestown.

Very good meal overall. Was somewhat pricey but not unexpected. Between the two of us I had the rack of lamb and the other was the swordfish. Both were excellent. The lamb was perfectly cooked to mid-rare and was not over seasoned. The swordfish was flakey and flavorful. Had a somewhat earlier reservation and by the time we left every table was full. For us it was not terribly loud but I could see how it could be too loud for some.

First impression was that it doesn't feel like a steakhouse. I ordered the 6oz filet- it was more like a sirloin steak (flat, not thick as you would expect of a filet in a true steakhouse). Not a fan.

Best place to get a steak in Doylestown! It’s a newer restaurant but I’ve been there at least 5 times now since initially going in December on a date. It’s consistently exceptional food and service is always top notch and I’ve had different servers each time. Lobster tacos are the best appetizer and any steak or seafood dish you chef go wrong with. My mom ordered a veal dish about a month ago when we dinned in and she described it as the best veal she’s ever had.

Upon arrival we checked in at the hostess desk and were told that another group was coming in at 45mins later for our table. I looked at the girl in astonishment! Wondered what that had to do with us given the fact we had made reservations on Open Table very early that day and not someone who walked off the street looking for a last minute reservation. I just looked at her and said what does that have to do with us and she proceeded to tell me “Well we won’t kick yous out if your not done in time”. That just destroyed any good feeling I had for the restaurant the rest of the night. The entire time I kept thinking about what she had said.

Service was disappointing. Our server was somewhat sloppy and not attentive. The young woman bussing food brought us someone else’s food - twice. Compared to other steak house restaurants, it was amateurish.
Food was good although we were at the table 50 minutes from sit down to when our apps arrived - I understand leisurely service but it was slow. My strip steak was very good as was dessert.
I am a frequent diner at 86West, love it there and was hoping to enjoy this restaurant from same owner.

would definitely recommend this place to a friend however if you are over 40 I would say to bring ear plugs for your meal! It was almost impossible to hear my husband while sitting at our table which was far back, seemingly out of the bar area (upstairs). I also think that downstairs in the actual bar it was probably awful if u just happened in there for dinner! they do a HUGE bar business. the upstairs booth and table seating was normal when we arrived but within 20 minutes the bottom fell out re our hearing! too bad bc we loved the meal. I suppose we would try it again but i would hope that dining during the week would prove to be better to enjoy what we were eating.
Do try it!

The food was delicious. Came out for the night with family. My only critique is that the second floor when we went was very cold, as the air conditioner was blowing right over us, and the music on top the atmosphere was a bit too loud for us to talk without raising our voices, but that didn’t last our whole meal which was nice.

Having said that, we really enjoyed the food and would definitely come again.

Always wanted to try it out since it opened this past summer. Food was a little salty (risotto cake special, crab cake, mushroom shumai):
- Mushroom shumai drenched in too much soy sauce.
- New York Strip was requested medium-rare, but served medium-well.

Despite this, the food was very good. Favorites included the crispy octopus, grilled swordfish, truffle Parmesan fries, risotto cake, and crab cake.

The interior is amazing! I had previously been when it was the Knight House in winter 2012. The SSSS is more inviting and homely.

I would recommend. Next time I visit, I’ll try your scallops.
