"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."

Only place we go when we are at the beach. Cocktails are well made and service is great. Always always have the Ugly Tomato Salad! Food is excellent. Innovative preparations keep the menu interesting. Had the Blackened Halibut the other night and it was best fish dish I’ve ever eaten. Tonight we both had an all time favorite- the Stuffed Pork Chop. A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

Our dinner was outstanding! Everything we ate was delicious. The cauliflower steak was so flavorful and filling. It was our anniversary and we were surprised to receive a complimentary dessert of blueberry pie and whipped cream with the Happy Anniversary written in chocolate!! A class act!! Love this restaurant.

Fantastic as usual. Blueberry pie this good can’t be found anywhere else. Our server Rayna was great and attentive. The only room for improvement was the tomato salad had too much dressing...an easy fix. Will definitely continue to go back.

Steve & Cookie’s never disappoints. It is culinary perfection. The ugly tomatoes were delectable and could very well be a meal in itself. The seafood is fresh and perfectly prepared. The blueberry pie was the perfect ending to a perfect meal.

It was our 48th Anniversary....
The meal was outstanding, the service exemplary.
Our server, Hector, went above and beyond to not only make our dining experience an exceptional event, but, he made this very special anniversary a memory that we will never forget!

We had an outstanding dining experience at Steve and Cookies. The service was excellent and food preparation was delicious and fresh. The in house seasonal baked goods were the best ever.
Thanks also for the special attention given to us for our anniversary.
We hope to dine there again soon.

My daughter and I had an enjoyable experience. The staff were very friendly and attentive. We had an 8:45 Sunday reservation, and even though it was less crowded then usual, it was still extremely noisy sitting across from the bar. The seafood special was great, and my daughter enjoyed her crispy duck. The lobster soup of the day and the salmon carpaccio appetizer were also enjoyable. As always, the Steve and Cookie's blueberry pie was our favorite part of the dinner!

We love the food and the service at this restaurant. Everything is always delicious and fresh. No complaints about the food or the service. Negatives - If seated by the bar area, it is quite loud and I wish there were more windows or views of the outside.

The food here is consistently good. Hard to get a reservation so need to plan well in advance or eat at the bar. I like the variation of menu offerings too so you don't always have to have an entree. Have their own lot out back with decent turnover so can usually get parking.
