"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."

5 Star! Steve & Cookies never disappoints and is one restaurant if you're visiting the shore that you have to go to. A reservation is a must.

Our overall experience was good enough to come again in the near future.
High expectations due to lots of 5 star reviews and hard to come by table reservations were not met, however.
The lamb and beef were cooked to near-perfection, but generally the food did not “blow us away.” Additionally we thought the visual plate presentation was strangely lacking.
That being said, our dinner and drinks were delicious, the nearby piano tunes were a plus, and serving staff were helpful.

One of my favorite restaurants!! I have never had a bad meal here ever , This time my only complaint was my scallops & lobster were over cooked. I didn’t complain or say anything Bc we love it here and of coarse will come back!

We were able to find a spot at the bar while we waited for our table. Fortunately, there was a cancellation and the hostess was able to get our seats 30 minutes early. We enjoyed the atmosphere and food specials, especially the Prussian Pearls.

Beautiful atmosphere. Wait staff exceptional. We even met Cookie and thanked her for a great experience. Salads were perfection and the entrees were satisfying. I had the pork chop, it was great. My husband had the filet and he loved it. We were too stuffed for dessert.

Excellent waitress but can’t remember her name. Small, petite light skin African American with an Afro hair style. We come there frequently and she is the best!!

Everything was amazing from start to finish, we were a little early for our reservation so we had a drink at the bar and we were seated promptly at our reservation time. Our server, Danny, was great! We will definitely be back!

We went to Steve and Cookie's for Valentine's Day dinner so of course it was busy. It is our Go To place for birthdays and anniversaries and other special events. We'd come more regularly except for the distance from our home. The reason I rate it so highly it that the food and service are consistently excellent. We also appreciate Cookie's generosity providing free dessert for a birthday or anniversary and a rose for every lady on Valentine's Day. More important is her generosity to the local community.

This was our third evening at Steve & Cookie’s By The Bay, and like the first two, our experience from cocktail through dessert and coffee, was super! I keep ordering the duck because it is superb and know that I won’t ever experience that anywhere else...now my friends order it as well.

You will be charmed - go!!

Food and service was phenomenol. our seat was in the middle of the walkway for the waitresses and everyone else. One of the people at our table was continually getting bumped by people walking by . The noise level was through the roof. We couldn't even talk to each other. I would reccomend the restaurant for food and service. However be warned : watch where they sit you.
