Hostess seating 2 adult couples at a table backed up to a high chair. When asked to be seated at an empty table next to the one we were seated at we were told it was reserved. The table was empty the whole time we were there. We also had a reservation and the hostess should have seated us at that table instead of putting us at a table that a high chair was backed up to. We enjoy the food & our server was excellent. Sorry, I don’t like to give bad reviews, but that just irked me.

Steam catered our wedding and they did an excellent job. We like to go for brunch from time to time because we enjoy their food and it is nice to do on special occasions. This time we went to brunch for my husbands birthday.

Food was good. The only thing was that the nachos with short rib meat added was bland. Everything else we had was great. Kids pizza could have fed 2-3 kids. Server was good and the place was nice

Excellent waiter. Food was good
Many tables open but squeezed 5 people at a table for 4 which seemed unnecessary since it was pretty empty on a Sunday.

Food was amazing always. Service was not so good. We waited 25 minutes for drinks they arrived after our food and the server said “ the presentation makes up for the wait” no apology. After 15 min of waiting we asked for waters. Very disappointing since there were 2-3 bartenders on. I also didn’t receive my open table points from the reservation

Always a pleasant experience made by such friendly and attentive servers and delicious food. Can’t beat the $5 HH Margaritas. My friend and I had the Wass Burger that was cooked to perfection. My wife really enjoyed the Chop Chop salad, while my friends wife raved about the seared tuna salad. Look forward to our next visit.

Great tasting food, did not like the mojito I ordered but the wine was divine. A table by us was a bit loud but we did not mind. Will be going back!

Food was great as always. Plenty of beer and drink options. Can be a little loud but the food and beverage selection definitely compensates for that.

We requested a table away from the noise. We were put near the back but unfortunately not back enough. An extremely loud group at the bar Tuesday night. Glad they were having a good time but we could not hear each others conversations.
Food is great. Service was terrific. I wish something could be done, so that people at the bar could have a good time without the rest of us being unable to have a normal conversation.

Went for brunch. I ordered eggs Benedict but they brought me one egg, completely undercooked. About 10 mins later they brought my other egg, more undercooked than the other.

seated immediately, the booth was weird, as the table was so far from the booth seats, we were perched on the edge the entire meal. That was uncomfortable. Wait staff was good. Meals came quickly, but we had to wait for silverware after food was already on the table. Food was good - would come back, but definitely not sit at that booth again.

Steam has a great menu for brunch & dinner! (about 15 different omelette combos!) Everything is delicious, drinks too!

The patio is ideal when the weather is nice, but the inside has a neat atmosphere too!
All the servers, bartenders etc. are super friendly which makes for an exceptional experience.

2 entrees came out completely wrong. The rest of the table was done eating before the correct food came out. No relief on check. Won’t go back.

Brandi was an awesome waitress and tolerated me and my children. Food was overpriced and over fried. Burger was bland and not worth 15. Service was impeccable.
