    The ambience, comfort, accommodating staff and fantastic bartenders and kitchen make for a great experience. Patrons can settle into the bar or hightop or standard tables. Service is fun, professional, friendly and attentive. On our last two visits we started with the chicken fried mushrooms which are lightly battered and flavorful. Seconds were the halibut, stripped bass, and lamb ragout. All were perfectly done. The place is always buzzing and for good reason.

    The oysters were wonderful--briny and fresh. The wood fired kale pizza was also a hit. And the sea bass was cooked perfectly cooked.

    I had been at a private function in the back room before, and appreciated the quiet ambience of that space. It was a bit too loud for my taste as it was hard to hear my friends speaking across the table from me. Some sound absorbing panels in the ceiling might be nice to help people have a more enjoyable time with each other. The food and service, on the other hand, were great!

    Overall - awesome. Drinks could be a little more generous for the money. Same with potions but really fun place and solid service! Get rid of the picnic benches in the parking lot - not a good look for a cool restaurant - maybe keep 4-6 tables but it’s too post covid to keep that going

    We were confused about outdoor seating and getting waited on. Waiter brought out flatware, napkins, water and cups, but didn’t take our order. The QR code did not work with our phones. So we had to go inside to order. Having done that, it was brought to us when it was ready. Salads were very good and it was pleasant outside in the breezes.

    Been a while since our last visit, and was initially taken aback by the decision to have stacks of massive bags of flour at the entryway. Odd decor decision. Other than that, the experience was excellent. Menu has become more interesting and varied. All of our food was delicious, including deviled eggs, smoked salmon fritters, fluke seviche, pasta entrées and duck. Service was excellent, friendly and professional.

    Steel and Rye is a great place to eat and drink. Just not in the summer time. It’s hot as a mofo in there. The AC doesn’t work and there aren’t any fans above to circulate air. It’s pretty stuffy in there. Other than that it’s a great experience. Once you get past the sweating.

    We arrived early (6pm reservation on a Friday night). They seated us (middle aged couple) next to two tables with small children (infant and toddlers) when there were plenty of other tables available. We didn’t ask to be moved as it would have been obvious to the diners with the young children and created an awkward situation. To be clear, the young families had every right to be there, especially at an earlier time, but seating a couple next to them made no sense.

    We were not in a rush and have been here several times, each time service is off, but this takes the cake. They have lots of staff standing around, we were seated and 15 minutes no water no waiter and felt forgotten. So we brought this to their attention and asked for a new seat in case this one being in an isolated area is forgotten. But the new seat took 10 minutes for water and another few minutes before being asked for drinks. Apps came out prior to drinks... At the end of the night we sat another 20 minutes prior to getting a check. Then the check already was paid by another credit card. So more time with a manager to resolve that. If the food was not amazing we would not have the patience for $9 beer and slow service.

    It was a beautiful night…doors were open to outside. Our waiter was attentive. My meal, lamb fusilli, was delicious, my wife’s risotto was very salty and a bit of a small portion for the price. We’ll definitely try again and maybe sit at the bar.
