Steam had a great atmosphere in the old train station converted over to a restaurant. I was here for a business dinner. The food was very good and it was rather empty when we were there. I would definitely go back.

Our food was excellent, and we will return because of that. Hostess asked our name and said nothing else to us for at least 15 minutes. We just stood there. Our waitress was nice, however very slow in beverage refills, even forgetting and needing to be reminded. Took very long to get drinks from her that came from the bar.

We have eaten at Steam multiple times and enjoyed it. This past Saturday we went for dinner with some friends. My husband had the blackened chicken and it was way overcooked. I had the french dip which was good, but my fries were way overcooked and not crispy at all. The 4 of us split a mushroom appetizer which was good. The drinks were okay. We might go back, in hopes that we just hit an off night.

The food was great here. Had the Bangers and mash. Very hearty portions of the sausage but a little light on the mash. Added plus was they had Irish dancers performing!

My business partners wondered why I took them there. The outside isn’t where you would take the unknowing. But the inside is great and the food is terrific.


For the seafood lovers it’s great. Crab tacos are great. It’s now the only place I will eat crab cakes-they have crab in them! It’s always an expensive version of bread crumbs-not at Steam!

More for a friends night out - just a little loud and very crowded. Made a reservation for 7:15 through open table and we weren't seated until like 7:40 - they did their best with the crowd they had.

This was my 1st visit to Steam. I made reservations for a party of 3 for lunch. We arrived early and we were seated immediately. The staff was very attentive and the food was good. We all enjoyed our selections. Between the 3 of us we ordered an appetizer, a soup, a side salad, a burger, sliders, and a wrap. The one complaint we all had was the parking situation. The restaurant shares a lot with other stores and none of us could find a spot near the entrance. I also don't believe they are handicap accessible. In order to get to the main entrance, you had to climb a series of steps which could be a challenge for some patrons.

We made reservations, which was a good thing because they were busy for an early Friday night. I changed the rsvp to a regulate table the day before but we still received a high top. We didn’t complain because we didn’t want to wait.
We had the crab dip and it was a tad bland. The beer lacked real selection as most kegs were “kicked”. I had a steak that was very good and my sister in law had a burger she liked.
The most disappointing aspect of the night was the service. The gentleman we had was not engaging, seemed annoyed we asked about the beer, and never checked on us, not even after our food came. We waited forever for our food and check. I wouldn’t definitely give it another try but I was underwhelmed by my first experience.

The food at Steam Pub was good, especially the Burgers are awesome. They have a lot of beers on tap, unfortunately, the most of the specials were already gone.
The waitress was friendly and recommended the right food for us.

We are frequent visitors; and this time we were not disappointed. Our server James was very attentive and knew when to ask for a beer refill. The food was very good as we expected... the ahi tuna appetizer and crab chowder were a very nice start to the meal. My chicken toscana was tasty and plentiful; my husband also enjoyed his Black and Blue steak. Enjoyable evening.

Steam is an unexpected find. This is our third time and I remained impressed with the quality of the food. When you walk in you say, "it's just a bar" but the food is excellent. Service is good. We ask to sit in the back at the low tables to avoid some of the bar noise. We'll be back.

On OpenTable this looks like a classy establishment... in real life it’s not much more then a dive bar. I’m all for dive bars but the pictures they have on here are false advertisement.

The nachos to toppings ratio was a bit off. Still delicious, but we could’ve used some more nachos. It sounds crazy to say that, but I’d rather not eat the toppings with a fork after the nachos run out. However, Steam never disappoints, just wish people would leave their young children at home.
