"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."

Love this place. Consistent in a good way. The problem is I always order the same thing! Our favorite place. We also like that Cookie gives so much back to the community.

For a special dinner, you can hardly beat Steve & Cookie’s! It’s chefs are consistently excellent, often creatively offering new twists on dishes we love. And the wait staff is efficient and very helpful.
I can’t wait to go back!

Excellent food and service. The only criticism is if you have 5:00 reservations you cannot stay in Restaurant before 5. Even though they have a full bar, you cannot have a before dinner drink or have a comfortable seat. We had to wait in our car. They should consider opening the bar at 4:30, especially on holidays. It did put a little damper on an otherwise amazing meal.

Very expensive, $110 bill with no booze or desert. Service is done by kids, that gather and gossip by the bar. Expected more professionalism for the price.

This restaurant always seems to get top reviews but our experience included oysters that were too large, mediocre food, and slow service.

Excellent food as always. Our server Hector was very friendly & attentive as well as our food runner.
We ordered the suplini, burrata, bouillabaisse, cowboy steak & jumbo lump crab over pasta. Everything was delicious. We didn’t even have room for dessert. My favorite restaurant still!

Our waitress Kay was great! The food was delicious! Everything we ordered was beautifully presented. The negative...we could not hear each other speak at all, I know you could do nothing about this but the table of 5 young women, right behind us were so loud and boisterous... as if they were hanging at a bar, so loud that many other patrons on the other side of the room were turning around. When we were first shown our table I wanted to be seated at another immediately but didn't since you were already so crowded I assumed this was the only table. The draft from the door was very uncomfortable so much so I had to wrap my coat around my legs. The lentil soup my husband ordered was lukewarm. We had to wait very long for our meal...45 minutes maybe more after the first course. The waitress came by 3 times and apologized. We don't like to complain, but since you asked I felt compelled to let you know...I do want to commend you on an amazing menu and delicious innovative meals you serve. Also, the young men pouring water etc. were all very, very pleasant and right on top of everything! Thank you for a delicious meal. Adonna Calabrese

First visit to Steve & Cookie’s & it won’t be my last!
Food & service outstanding, my wife had the Lump Crab
& Pasta and said it the best she ever had! My very tender
Veal Chop was delicious as were all of the entree’s,appetizers and cocktails. The wine list was fantastic and offered everything you could look for.

Food and service were excellent; however, there was neither a floral arrangement nor a candle on the table which greatly diminished the ambiance.

Steve and Cookie’s is a warm, welcoming and delicious place to eat. We brought friends from LBI who totally enjoyed the food and experience! The charred romaine salad with fried oysters was a big hit as well as the lobster Mac & Cheese, lollipop lamb chow, raw oysters and crepe brûlée. Cookie stopped by to chat and we asked about the fabulous dance contest fundraiser that she participated in. I appreciate the ambience, attention to detail, and all Cookie does for the community!
