We were there with a large crowd so with the music playing, it was hard to have a conversation. The food was good.

Our Asian Caesar salad were delicious! The service was pretty good... nice and attentive enough. The restaurant smelled like a bar though... like a day old party... combination of beer and smoke. They don't allow smoking inside, but there were hundreds of cigarette butts littering the entrance way, garden area, even in the gutters... super gross to see when entering.

This was our second visit to Steam and what a difference dining during the week and on the weekend. We had good service and food was delicious but the noise level on Saturday was deafening. If you want to enjoy a conversation without having to shout at each other avoid dining at Steam on the weekends.

We came in for an early dinner (6 adults, 3 kids). Service was excellent and so were the drinks. There were 6 entrees ordered and 3 of them we just okay. We also had 6 dessert and the tiramisu was the only one I’d order again.

Food was wonderful, atmosphere great but extremely noisy.
Our server (I believe Tara) was OUTSTANDING. She was so sweet and attentive, and even went to the parking lot to find us when I forgot my dessert in the takeout box. I'm so glad I received this email to write this review, as I really wanted to acknowledge her. She was so
great!!

The noise level, even early on a Wednesday evening, makes it hard to hold a conversation over dinner. Not a place for a quiet meal. Food is good and value is fair

Excellent service, food, and vibe! I didn't expect the crowd at the 5:45 time, however, I can see why. Happy hour prices on drinks and apps were awesome too. Burgers were soooo good!!!

Steam was our favorite in the area, but haven’t been there for a while.
I’m not a hamburger person, but lately I’ve been craving a burger.
All the offers out there are for 8oz.
I just can’t do that much, that big, that thick, then I noticed the Happy Hour menu
at Steam had two, 2oz. burgers. That was perfect, and they were delicious!
Way to go Steam!!

I hope it is not intentional, but I fear we were victim to ageism. We were offered a hightop in main bar area, and declined, asking for a traditional table. There were four of us. We were seated at a VERY SMALL table, not fit for four in a high traffic area. There were several more spacious 4 tops available. We asked again for more preferable seating and were asked to settle for a hightop. Several later arriving parties of four were seated at traditional 4 tops. The only saving grace was that the food was excellent.

We have been here many times before, but we should’ve thought twice before coming here on a Sunday morning right when they open. While they were quite accommodating when the rest of our party was late, the food came out very slowly, and there was a lot of confusion about who got what. The amount of food that we got for the price that we paid was also a little bit disappointing. We probably won’t be coming back here for brunch.

Love going here, just have to remind myself not to go so late on a weekend when they have a band playing. Not because of the music, but because it draws in a bigger crowd. Once the bar is full, people then tend to socialize in between tables where you are still dining. Literally have people leaning on your chair or staring at someones back or listening to conversations you do not want to hear because they are so close. Just make it uncomfortable while you're still trying to enjoy dinner.

Have been to Steam many times and have never had a bad meal there. Just had cheese steak this time but also had the French Onion soup and the small chop chop salad. Everything was really good. They have a really good beer menu and drink menu also.

Date night with wife and wanted a low key place to go with some energy. Had the seared tuna app and it was a hot mess of sauce and lord knows what kind of stuff all around it. My wife had a salad special that had missing ingredients and some unwelcome additions. I had a gross panini and a poor attempt at garlic fries.

Go for drinks and company, don’t go for dinner

I have been to Steam many times and always have a terrific meal and the staff is always excellent! Their menu changes with the seasons, which I enjoy very much, including their drink menu. I would always recommend this restaurant. The ONLY negative as far as I am concerned, is the noise level. But it is a hopping bar scene.

Food was good. Beer selection is good although the two my friend and I ordered had been just kicked so a bit disappointing in that regard, although enough other choices to make up for that. The place is really, really loud though - could not have a conversation at all.

I recently met 4 friends here for brunch. There are really no healthy or light options on the menu like yogurt, fruit or oatmeal. We all ordered and agreed our food was average. The skillets were supposed to have home fries and instead had undercooked tater tots. The bacon in them was so small. All in all, disappointing. Our waitress however was awesome.

Went for brunch this past Sunday...Apple stuffed french toast a disappointment. More like applesauce stuffed...stuffing was runny. Crab avocado Benedict was very good. Server was OK but not overly attentive. He checked in once but didn't keep an eye on coffee levels. Surroundings are a little shabby...curtains carelessly knotted up, windows dirty. Again, it was OK but not really great.
