Excellent food and service. We were greeted and seated immediately, water, soda and beer served up right away, along with fresh hot bread and oil. Our appetizers and entrees came out equally as fast and were fresh and hot. We had the prime rib eggrolls- amazing- and I had the Scottish salmon entree. It was delicious and a large portion, too. My husband scarfed down his bone-in pork chop special. They catered to our 4 year old and brought him a plastic cup/straw for his water, butter for the bread, and a cheeseburger and fries. Great experience overall!

I read recent reviews and was a little apprehensive. I was so glad I went anyway. The food was delicious! No matter where you go, places are short staffed. They did a really good job trying to overcome that. When you come, don’t be in a rush. The food is definitely worth it!

We enjoyed our 13th year anniversary. We come here often. I had the mignon which was mouth watering, and my wife got the Stephens Chicken. The Tarimesu was perfect! Great 👍 place.

I'm not much of a Groupon purchaser but decided to try one for Stephen's. Made a reservation on a beautiful Sunday evening after the Eagles opening game, had a small table by one of the open windows, a wonderful glass of wine, excellent bread with a good oil dipping mixture, an awesome dinner and one of the best servers we could have asked for along with the other assisting staff. My husband said as we left what a great, relaxing and enjoyable dinner it was! We'll be back for sure!

Service was slow. The server apologized, which was an acknowledgment of the slow service but didn’t make the experience better. The food probably would have tasted better if it wasn’t cold. Maybe she forgot I was a customer, I don’t know. The appetizer was very tasty and the wine was extremely good. After that, it went south

Husband and I went for a date night. Casual atmosphere., very lively. Greeted by a friendly hostess. Where we were originally seated, there was no ambiance as we were among larger tables that were loud. The lighting in that area was really bright and harsh. Looking around, there were a couple open tables near the front of house that were more dimly lit and removed from the loud chatter. We couldn’t sit there after asking bc there was a DJ coming in but there was a side table where the hostess was happy to seat us. The server was prompt and offered suggestions after we asked. My husband decided on one of their specials not listed on the main menu (blackened sea bass with shrimp). I had crab cakes with mashed potatoes and asparagus from the main menu. We agreed to share. In the meantime we had drinks and apps. The soup my husband had was a Maryland seafood chowder in a red sauce. It was tasty but a little sweet. Would be better with a little bit more spice. I had fried calamari and I enjoyed it. Hubby had white cran Cosmo. It was meh. I had a blue lemonade drink( can’t recall the name) but it was very tasty. Ordered a second. Hubby ordered his drink again after expressing disappointment with first. Server said she would talk to the bartender. Second time the drink is much stronger but still meh. Just lacked flavor. Either way we were chilling and it wasn’t a huge deal. Then out of nowhere all of the lights went up bright! Like last call in a club even though it was early still. The friendly hostess tried to adjust the lighting back down but didn’t really work and it kinda killed the mood. Anyway main entrees: Hubby’s food was so freaking delicious. I wish I had ordered. My crab cakes were underwhelming. No real lump and truthfully not a lot of flavor. But my husband gave me a piece of his fish which helped my meal taste better. Skipped dessert. Was still charged for original bad drink. Would give them another try. Not a romantic place but good for a meal.

Ribeye was delicious! Diver's Scallop Plate was wonderful. Received a okay review due to the soups. Crab Soup was more like vegetable soup and clam chowder had very little clams. But the main entrees were good.

Nice experience but, to be honest, the food was just fair. Two orders of scallops were just ok but more flat than fresh. The crab cakes for my wife tasted a bit tired. If we go back will stick to steaks or chicken. The seafood just did not taste as fresh as it should have for the price.

The ribeye steak I ordered was disappointing. It was medium, not medium rare as I ordered. I usually order a ribeye when I eat out and this was very chewy and tough. I will not order it again on my next visit. For a $44 steak, it was definitely not good value.

My steak was overdone, but overall quality was great. Our server was excellent. Their prices are high, but with a Groupon, affordable.

Date night with my fiancé and we have been here before. Friendly service and atmosphere was nice. Groupon had a great deal to dine in and we took advantage and enjoyed ourselves. Told family and friends and it’s very likely we will return.

A old favorite of mine. I had the shrimp Lejon for “starter”. I had the prime rib sandwich but I regret this only because I did not enjoy/want the bread.
I found the price of the main entrees like filet to be a bit over priced - $45.

My wife had the Seafood Bucatini which had a spaghetti type pasta as the base which was hard to eat and too much. It also seemed at bit pricey $29.

The desert was tiramisu which was excellent.

The other disappointment is we could not use all of the $100 Groupon. They offered to let us take out something for the remaining value but neither of us could think of anything.

I admit growing up in the Pacific Northwest made me a bit of a salmon snob, but the Scottish Salmon at Stephen's on State was as good as I've had anywhere. Wonderful.

Overall experience was outstanding had friends dinner to celebrate everyone vaxed. 1 person had scottish salmon off regular menu and other 2 had evening special of rib-eye with cheese and onions coating all were great and we did not need any take home boxes there was nothing left. One caveat when we first arrived it was crowded so noise level was high, if your looking for quieter I would make reservation for after 8pm as crowd thins.
