Stephi Cocktails & Cuisine
Something a little different from the standard beach fare. Appears to be a new place and the service was a little choppy as a result, but the fish, steak, and Asian-inspired dishes were all excellent.
I really wanted to give it a good rating since it had been recommended by a friend but it was really a bad experience. I know they are having staffing problems. We ordered a drink when we first got there. 45 minutes later we were told they didn’t have we ordered, so we ordered a glads of wines wrong wine, red not white, was delivered. Finally got the wine I ordered. Food was so salty we couldn’t eat most of it. Hope they can get things straightened out. We prefer to supppry
local restaurants rather than chains.
Food was wonderful!! We had the papa bear sushi for an appetizer and the grilled snapper for dinner paired with delicious chardonnay.
They had a local musician that help set the mood for a great experience!
Our waiter was helpful in recommending all our choices and was very attentive!!
Service was fantastic food was quick and good, love music was okay but very loud
The food was really tasty but drinks are expensive but not only there but everywhere. Wish that Happy Hour was until 7pm
Really great menu with lots of options. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Service was swift and attentive. Also easy walking distance from a number of condos across the street which is always a plus.
Greeted and seated promptly as well.
Overall a great experience. Would certainly go back when in Orange Beach.
The sushi rolls were full of flavor and so very fresh. Some of the best I’ve ever had and I am SUPER picky. The entrees were just okay, over priced and the amount of protein in the seafood dishes was very small. The meal would have been 5 stars if we had ordered sushi for dinner as well. It was art and delish!
What a fantastic surprise! The 6 adults and one child All loved our meals. Sushi was phenomenal and the teriyaki snapper was amazing!
Great restaurant. Service was a little slow but worth the wait. The sushi was absolutely wonderful.
We have found a hidden gem! We went on a Wednesday night with a group of 7. There was live music in the bar area so at times it was slightly loud, but the singer was great so we didn’t mind. Every one of us loved our meals and the drinks were very creative! Maybe $19 for sushi is high, but as someone who enjoys a good sushi roll, it was worth every penny! There were lower prices options as well. Very diverse menu and good sized portions. Can’t wait to go back!
Excellent sushi and red snapper!!! Would go back!
The lumpia, empanadas, and ceviche were delicious. The sushi was outstanding, and the smoked pork udon was amazing; especially for our 1 daughter who does not like seafood. The wine list is thoughtfully chosen, pairs well the menu, and is very reasonably priced, and the service was wonderful. We really enjoyed the live music and realized it was probably the first we’d seen since the before-time. Stephi’s is exactly the type of hidden gem, with unique and well prepared cuisine, that we are always on lookout for when we travel to new places. We will definitely be back on next beach vacation!!
Excellent food and service. We had a party of 14 and they were very accommodating.
Our server took quite a while to get to us. It seems the people working were too busy doing other things. The wait staff was not very professional looking. It is very convenient to where we live at the beach, but prob ably not going back. Is a shame because the food was not bad, though I thought price ed too high for what we got. An example is the appetizer, we got two spring rolls that were $6.
Hand rolled sushi and a Caribbean fusion menu. Craft cocktails and amazing desserts. Stephi’s has it all. We really like the unique menu here and think it’s a great addition to the beach.
Overall a decent dining experience, great cocktail options, staff was friendly and helpful. Menu a little limited, but overall each dish was well prepared and enjoyable.
The food is amazing!
Fabulous. Great sushi!!!
Nice food and cocktails and loved the music.
I had a really hard time picking just one thing from the menu. This was our favorite meal at Orange Beach. Not even close.
We made a reservation for lunch here and when we got there we were the only people in the restaurant, so that was a little odd. The food was very good, but pretty pricey for what it was, I.e. a small sushi roll was $18. The drinks were not good at all, our white wine was warm and 2/3 of the people at our table thought the cocktails tasted like water.
Dinner was great! The live music was very nice and the food was great! The only thing that would make it better would be to dim the lights a bit. We will definitely be back.
Thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your experience. Your suggestions about the lighting is noted. Hope to see you back soon.
Enjoyed the meal.
We really enjoyed our meal. The food and variety was great
Thank you for your review. We take pride in our eclectic menu. We are certainly glad you enjoyed your dining experience at Stephi's.
Service and food still terrible!,! This was the second time we tried the place thinking opening week is always getting kinks out but...... no change.
We ordered he fresh catch and it was over cooked and dry and the supposedly fall off the bone Asian ribs...... so rough you couldn’t eat them.
I’m sorry, I was really pulling for them!
Like many restaurants today staff was at a minimum so I understand the complications and appreciate our waitresses efforts. She did a fine job just short staffed. I did not enjoy the cooked meal I received and it was over priced but the sushi was fabulous.
Good food - sushi was overpriced.
I have never been more grateful to leave another restaurant because of a two hour wait. It prompted me to check the open table app to see what else was available in town. We liked the look of the pictures on the menu for this restaurant, and were so happy with our decision!
The food here has a variety of Asian influence, from Thai and Filipino, Japanese sushi, two non-Asian options like Caribbean jerk and burgers. I will attach pictures below, the food was absolutely amazing!
The restaurant is clean, creatively decorated, and has a very colorful bar. The cocktail menu looked really creative and nice, I did not partake so I won’t be able to leave a review on the cocktail menu. The staff, everyone from the hostess, our waitress and what I think was the manager we’re all so nice to us and very welcoming.
If you are looking for a place to eat in Orange Beach or Gulf Shores, this is the place to try, you will keep coming back!
Obviously short handed but worked hard. Were very attentive and food was good. Not typical beach food which we enjoyed.
Everything we ordered was fantastic…..great menu covering any and every taste possible! The sushi rolls were a little small for the cost but the quality/taste was amazing! Everything was very fresh!!
Overall Just OK.
The good: innovative cocktails and good wine menu.
The bad: overpriced dinner menu, small portions, slow service, overlooks a Wal-Mart parking lot.
Suggestions: serve cocktails with a napkin or coaster or use a table cloth. Increase serving sizes. Drop the prices. You are overlooking a Wal-Mart parking lot.
Restaurant has great potential but needs to work the kinks out. Hostess was delightful but our waitress was inattentive at best. Was probably a good 10 mins before anyone came to the table after we were seated and she never came back or offered to replenish our beverages, etc.. Beer arrived after our meal was served. Appetizer served with meal rather than before. Food was pretty good but spring rolls were very greasy. I’m willing to give them another try at some point.
Stay away from this restaurant. The food was very bad. It did not taste good and the plates were very small. The wait staff was mot properly trained and could not answer any questions.
Good overall experience with over the top hospitable staff having Interactions with numerous team members. Adventurous cocktail menu with some unique fusion offerings as well. Plating and presentation was nicely done. Would go again to try more menu offerings in the future.
The food is good. Service was very good. I feel service is very good all around as other tables also had good service. The menu has something for everyone. The bar was missing many of the sake on the menu
Food was great. I had red snapper dish and my wife had an Asian dish with shrimp and noodles.
Service was great also.
We like live music so we sat in the area where the stage is. Music was great too! We were able to walk from our beach condo. We will go back!
Very unique dining experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful with our food selections! We will definitely return!
We enjoyed our Mother’s Day Lunch! The food and service were amazing. I recommend you go check them out. One of our new beach favs!
We were in town for a tournament and found them and saw good reviews and they were happy to accommodate our party...the food was delicious and the waitress was fantastic. The Korean Beef Bowl was so good and the empanadas as well! My kids enjoyed the sushi and I believe everyone in our party had a great meal and a great time!
The food was good but not great and the service was strange at best.
