"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."

New Year’s Eve. A very, very enjoyable evening. The only minor disappointment was that there did not appear to be much flexibility in modifying components of an entree (eg, omitting garlic). But, this limitation is understandable and there were multiple other options on the menu.

Outstanding food, creatively prepared. Service excels! Despite the crowds on a fully booked evening, our server was professional and efficient. The team served us as though we were the only ones in the room. No bacon on the salad? No problem. Our server came back to ensure every course was perfect.

Have been to Steve and Cookies 7 or 8 times in past few years, usually for Birthday or Anniversary. We have never been disappointed with any aspect. Whenever we are in the area , always one of our resteraunt choices. Would highly recommend!

Because it was a Monday, we went early so we could go to happy hour which is only offered off season during the week. My husband and I had appetizers and drinks that were extremely well prepared and delicious. We’ve eaten at the restaurant on numerous occasions but never had gone to happy hour. If we were local, we would be happy hour regulars - it was outstanding! After 90 minutes at the bar, we had another fabulous meal at Steve and Cookies. Wonderful evening!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. TheSTEAK AND CRAB CAKES p was amazing and the THIA BRUSSELL SPROUTS was refreshing. Service was well-timed and friendly, $$$ but worth it,

We went out with my in laws and our kids (ages almost 1 and 3). It was a nice dinner with big portions. They have options for the kids that aren’t listed in the menu. I got the salmon while the rest of the adults god a seafood platter, and all meals were delicious. It was pricey, but we knew that it would be an expensive night that doesn’t happen often.

Steve and Cookies has become our go to for a terrific meal and romantic evening. Cocktails are perfect and the Sunday gravy meal is the very best. Will go back often for this one. Great sauce and terrific meat combo. Very much like childhood. Love it and Gail our bartender was educational and very nice

Chairs on the small side and a little uncomfortable. Seating was prompt. Not rushed at all. Room was not noisy and conversation was easy.

Just was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed all of it. From beginning to end. Our waitress was terrific. We live in Margate during the summer and it’s ridiculously hard to get in. Wish that process was easier. But wonderful experience

Dined with my husband for a date night. It was our first time there—we could not believe it’s taken us this long to try. We had a friend give us a gift card Could only get a 5 o’clock reservation, which wound up being fine because the place was full when we left. Dinner and drinks were fabulous. Our server Anthony was patient, knowledgeable, and just plain awesome!

Was there with another couple. We’ve been there many times. Food & drinks are outstanding. Service is every bit as good. Will continue to patronize this gem.
