"Fans attest quality is everything at Cookie Till's legendary Margate New American where well-trained servers offer on-target suggestions from the menu of excellent locally sourced fare and extensive wine list; the mood is upbeat in the multiroom space that's usually packed with an ‘in' crowd, which is why regulars recommend reservations in the summer and on weekends year-round."

Has always been our favorite in Margate, but this was just exceptional even as big S&C fans. New menu additions like Califlower Steak were amazing, to supplement old favorites like Veal Chop Milanese, hope they carry it all year. Drinks expertly crafted, and made to order. Even a lovely dessert sampler for our anniversary was terrific. Always great, this time was just next level.

We enjoyed our dinner on Friday the 10th. The service was perfect, all our needs were met without even asking. The food was a gastronomic experience. I had the short ribs and they were outstanding. We all loved our meals and appetizers. Can’t wait to return again.

Delicious food & cocktails, great service. They gave a complimentary dessert for my friend who was celebrating her Birthday. It was busy for a Wednesday night in November. I can’t imagine what it’s like in December! Would definitely recommend.

This time we sat in the upper dining room. The ambiance here is beautiful and we love the food and service. Even off season the restaurant is packed and everyone is happy and cheerful which is really nice at the beach in November when so many other places seem like they are just going through the motions at this time of year. This is our Sunday favorite restaurant destination!

We decided to go tonight and try the Turkey Thursdays. Salad was great, turkey was fabulous and of course being a “Thanksgiving” type of dish had loads of carbs. Even slice of pie was good

Steve and Cookies is consistently outstanding and has been for many years. Service is very good . The food is always fresh using local produce whenever available. The cost is a little high for us so we only go for special occasions. We enjoy the quiet piano music.
We recommend it to others very often.

I was so excited to see my favorite summer dish, roasted pan seafood platter was still on the menu in October. Absolutely delicious, as always. My husband enjoyed his favorite, meatloaf. Since we were celebrating birthdays of myself & my cousin, the added touch of the complimentary dessert sampling made our night even more special. We will be back soon.

The place is very nice, and open. As you walk in everyone stares at you and its a little uncomfortable, but Im sure they are regulars. The service was very good, the bus people were extremely polite and attentive, which was a pleasure. We had two meals one being the crabcakes, which were ok not the best, a little dry and the garnish with them was not good, it was some sort of greens. The second was the crab imperial which was exceptional and well worth it. Overall very pleasant and would go back.

Food was very good. We had eggplant rolletini appetizer, crab cake entree with veggie slaw, side order cole slaw and the pork chop entree with Sweet potatoes and bacon. Everything was delicious except for the slides. The veggies so I had too much raw green pepper, not to my taste. And the coleslaw had big chopped pieces of cabbage rather than the stringy kind which I prefer. Those are my only negative comments on the food. The crab cake , although small, had big chunks of lump crab meat and no filler. The eggplant Rolletini appetizer was enough to share, and the dark bread served from the bread basket was fresh and delicious. Porkchop was filled with some sort of apple filling and was large and perfectly cooked. Sweet potatoes with bacon were slightly sweet with a nice smoky bacon taste and pieces of bacon. For dessert we had shared banana cream pie and a brownie bite. The brownie bite had liquid fudge inside and the banana cream pie had fresh bananas along the crust on the bottom. The bill was just under $100 with tip. We had no drinks or coffee. It got very crowded by the time we left, this is obviously a very popular place.
