    The Scallops were delicious. The atmosphere was pleasant. However, could do without the UFC fighting on the huge screens at the bar. Not a relaxing site to look up at.

    The waitress was horrible. I ordered green juice. It never came, so I canceled it I asked for hot sauce, she forgot about me, even though I asked for it twice. She forgot to put my order in for breakfast potatoes, then lied about missing the window and said they ran out. I order a whiskey drink. It never came. So I canceled.

    Incredible how mediocre the food can be in a physical space which is so inviting. It starts with bizarre and unappealing menu choices and then extends to the presentation and quality of food. Burger on essentially stale bun. Mushroom pasta very poorly presented and prepared. Scallops spread over a plate with nothing in between. Bread was great! The need to rethink the menu, the playing, and the food prep. Just disappointing.

    This was a convenient meeting location for me to meet my friends, but after a 1 hour and 15 minute drive, it was not worth it. The food was average with a very limited menu and the ambience was just ok. It was cramped and it was a game of bumper cars trying to walk to the restroom and back to the table. Service was just ok as the waitstaff lacked patience. Food came out at a decent time.

    I have been coming here for years, it’s one of my favorite places. When it first opened, we were so happy to have a fine dining option in Milton in the suburbs. Now it’s survived Covid and come back better than ever, although I still miss the duck wings!

    What a wonderful dinner we had at Steel and Rye. Love the vibe, decor, the neighborhood, the entire setting was stylish and cozy. Service was excellent, food delicious (we wish we could order everything). Wine and cocktail selection was very impressive. We ordered a selection of charcuterie had a pasta dish and pizza as well. Really enjoyed the meal while in a great setting.

    The roasted oysters were the worst I’ve ever eaten. Small size and overly crumbed….plus very dry. Total rip off. I ordered a sausage pizza and it came with onions on it(waitress should have clarified the order with me) The ambiance is good enough that I’ll try it again…maybe sit at the bar.

    The restaurant ambiance, service, and drinks were all excellent. The food was really good, but expensive for what you receive - The $16 cheeseburger doesn’t come with anything. Having to purchase fries on the side seems excessive. Regarding the burger - it’s two thin patties stacked, which doesn’t allow for any cooking temp preference, a bummer for anyone like me who prefers a rare burger. The sourdough bread starter also seems costly for what you get. (Delicious, though.) Overall, the location is beautiful, and every single person we interacted with was amazing. I enjoyed the experience and can see myself returning, but I think spending over $100 for two people to have dinner is worth considering.

    The fried oyster mushrooms are AMAZING. I don't usually order fried food. The fry is light. The sourdough bread is well worth it. The mushroom bolognese pasta was AMAZING. We all loved the bread pudding and the apple dessert. The noise level was perfect. Fun but we could still hear each other. I loved it that there was a lower alcohol IPA on the beer list, as well (Lord Hobo Life). Hannah our server was great. We will absolutely be back.

    The food was outstanding. We sat at a high top at the bar area. The waitress seemed ambivalent to us. The service was slow for refill of drinks and was quick to take our food order. I love Steel and Rye but this is the second time I have been there and the service is slow with the drink order.

    We went for a nice meal on a saturday night. The place was buzzing and they sat us within 10 minutes of our reservation time. The service was fine. Not terrible and not terrific. We had the smoked salmon fish balls for apps and the Chicken fried oyster mushrooms - they were delicious. The mains were not as uniformly great. We had a pizza - was really good as well as the bolognaise. The chopped salad was not as tasty as I would expect It was more of a grain bowl than a chopped salad. All in all, it was a good evening
