The two meat dishes on the brunch menu were inedible. The meat in the brisket entree was def. not brisket. The ordering process away from the table is annoying. We had to ask the servers for spoons and milk for our coffee. The last time I was there the busboy stole my takeout box while I was in the washroom. (The bakery is great though.)

The food is always outstanding. I've been for brunch twice recently, had the chilaquiles this time and it was fantastic. The servers were friendly and patient with our large group and complicated orders. The host was super accommodating, combining our two large-ish reservations into one outdoor table at the last minute. There were heaters outside which made it comfortable even in cool weather. They have a great payment system where you can order by phone, have all the orders come when they're ready to the same table, and separate the bill easily by individual. It was both Covid-safe and easy. Also, the apple cider donuts are amazing.

Brunch was pretty good. The eggs Benny serving was pretty small but the brisket hash was really filling and delicious

Great experience! Delicious halibut fritters, pimento dip, steak frites, and margherita pizza. Kind and attentive staff. Little pricey but worth it. Love the atmosphere and easy to park. Will be back!

We've been coming to Steel & Rye since it opened and have always had wonderful experience all around. This time the food was under par to our last expereinces. Our entrees were overcooked, dry - lacked sauces and weren't representative of all our previous wonderful and delicous visits. It felt as though the chef had the night off and the kitchen staff was filling in. We were also slightly dissapointed that a few items shown on their online menu were not listed on the in restaurant menu. Other than that, the service and the bar drinks were great. We will return and give it another try for sure!

Birthday celebration and first visit for most of us. While disappointed that a couple of expected menu items were not available, we went with “plan B” and enjoyed the apps, salads, pizzas, beer, wine, drinks and a couple of chocolate chip cookies to close things out. Great time had by all and a new favorite now on our list.

It is overpriced for what you get. Although it was good, I ordered Gnocchi for $27.00 and I received 5 or 6 SMALL gnocchis. That would be approximately $5.00 per small gnocchi. This was more of an appetizer than a main dish. I would really question my decision before going back. Rip off.

After being seated, we waited for over 10 minutes to be greeted by a server. No one ever came to our table, so we left the restaurant and will likely never return. I will be sure to tell friends and family about our experience.

I took my granddaughter there, visiting from Montreal, so she knows good food. The wait staff were great, and we really enjoyed the meals we each had. She had gnocchi and I had spinach pasta with white bolognese sauce. Delicious. There is something for everyone on this menu, small to big plates, and a comfortable lively ambiance. Why drove in to Boston when this restaurant is right in Milton.

My husband and I dine frequently at Steel and Rye. The consistency and quality of the food and harmony of the staff and servers are a weekly draw for us. Last night we enjoyed the newly added swordfish dish on the menu. It was cooked exactly the way we requested. The delicious sauce, collard greens, and cippolini onions were unlike any other swordfish creation we have experienced. Happy Birthday, Steel and Rye...
we hope you will continue to delight diners for many years to come.

I've always liked the atmosphere at Steele and Rye, but the menu was weird. It tried to hard to be trendy and at times it was impossible to find something to eat. With the addition of the pizza oven and a new menu it has improved immensely. We had the chicken fried mushrooms as an appetizer. They were great. Then split the chopped salad. It was tasty and enough for two. Then we each got a pizza. I had the sausage and ricotta. Could have used more cheese, but I am partial to cheese. I will go back now that the menu has expanded. Plus, everything we had was good.

We both got the meatball sub which was a little spicy. The bread was soft. I enjoyed my coffee and time that I got to spend with an old friend. The service was excellent. I will be going back for their pastries. It was a good lunch.

I don’t go out to eat to be directed my phone to order my food and beverages. It’s a beautiful system, no doubt, but it totally destroys the reason we like to dine out. Food amazing! Great atmosphere. Horrifying service.

Building is lovely and airy so no worries about social distancing. The bakery is outstanding - make sure you get something to take home, especially the bread. You order at the table using your phone and then they bring your food to you. Would love a few more items on the brunch menu but the food is excellent and very fresh. Heading back to try lunch.

Very impressed with varied menu selections, especially the opportunity to create your our Charcuterie Board. Very helpful bartender when it came to selecting a good red wine for dinner. Chicken & Pork Meatballs were very good & the sauce just make it better.
