"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."

We were celebrating the birth of a grandchild. We sat at the main bar..,just one seat until the couple at the end left and gave us their seats after another couple had taken what would have been my husband’s seat. The people around us knew one another, the bartender was great. Anyway, the whole experience, including the dinner that came later, was positive. We can’t wait to go nacl’

Food was excellent.
It was extremely noisy and difficult to converse between the 2 of us.
Server was not very attentive. We got water when we sat down. It was at least 10 to 15 minutes until anyone asked us about drinks. She took our drink order and then said bread would be right over. After 10 to 15 minutes we had to ask a passing waiter for some bread.

It was our anniversary and they did give us a complimentary dessert with Happy Anniversary written on the plate, which was a nice touch.

Dinner and service were excellent. Although we had a reservation for 6 people. 4 of us arrived together and the other couple would be arriving in a few minutes. The hostess refused to seat us until the other couple arrived. So since the bar area was full we were forced to stand inside by the door. There really wasn’t room for us to stand there since people were going in and out of the door. It was very awkward. We would have waited outside but it was much too hot to stand outside.

Right to the top of the list!! Oysters prepared perfectly followed by the smoothest succulent shrimp followed by the most outstanding peppercorn rubbed cowboy steak ever and squeezing in a Cookie recommended slice of blueberry pie with ice cream. Heaven from start to finish.

Excellent experience- my sister and I shared a tomato salad they brought it on separate plates which was so much better than sharing off the same plate. I had lamb chops medium crispy outside they were perfect. My sister ordered pasta and crab delicious. Drinks were perfect! Our favorite restaurant on the Island!

We had an amazing experience here. We had a reservation but ended up going earlier and eating at the bar. The bartender was fantastic giving us an overview of the menu and making suggestions. Everything was absolutely delicious. We had tomato appetizers which were amazing and the bronzino which was out of this world. We capped it off with their signature blueberry pie. It was the best we have ever eaten and well worth the drive there. Will definitely be back!!!

I have been dining at Steve & Cookie’s for over 20 years.
I am a fan and usually enjoy, but Monday night was a little off.
The bread especially the Wonderful Black Bread was stale, the Signature and one of my favorites Tomato Salad lacked the usual excellent flavor, and the Bronzino also did not meet the high bar that is normal at Steve & Cookie’s. My guests felt the same.
As usual the Blueberry pie was great!
Every restaurant can have an off night but I have never experienced that at Steve & Cookie’s

Our dinner was nothing short of wonderful . We started with the baratta and fried green tomatoes which were delicious !! The presentation of both plates was beautiful . We had the cowboy steak and seafood pan roast for our main course . Each was prepared perfectly and absolutely mouth watering . Could not pass up the marvelous desserts !! We had the warm brownie with vanilla ice cream
and the banana cream pie ( my absolute favorite ). The desserts were wonderful and finished off a very pleasant evening at Steve and Cookies !!!
Looking foreword to our next reservation !!

Food was good but nothing was outstanding and a bit overpriced. Crabcakes were good but not as good as other shore restaurants. Drinks were good but a bit overpriced. Service was good but there were two mistakes. A second drink was not the same as the first when asking for another. The wrong dessert was brought out. Not sure if there was a language issue.
