Steve & Cookies is a treat. The food was unbelievably delicious, the service was perfect and Cookie came over to say hi. In my opinion, one of the best restaurants around.

The service was great, food was mostly delicious. The crab cakes (no filler) and the salad that came with were phenomenal. My only complaint would be that the lobster in the lobster Mac & Cheese was a little over cooked therefore a little rubbery. The Mac & cheese itself had great flavor. A suggestion would be to take the peppers out of the crab imperial, they take over the flavor of what would be a delicious cheese sauce in a classic dish. All in all, great evening and I’m sure we will be back.

One of the best restaurants anywhere. We have eaten here many times and never disappointed. The menu is always fresh yet the traditional favorites are always there. I cannot say enough about how pleased we were with our meal last night. All eight people raved about their dishes and the desserts were delectable. Can't wait till we get back to this excellent restaurant again.

Pleasantly surprised by an ambient dining room with a nice view of the bay (not all tables have a great view). Noise increased as room filled, however, the noise treatment applications on the ceiling are noted and appreciated. Most of all, great food. Ingredients were excellent, considerable creativity was evident, and portions were ample. Service was intelligent and attractive. Reservation was over Easter weekend; we were told that Passover was priority.

It may not be easy to get a reservation but there is a reason why. The food and service are superior. George, the sommelier, knows his wines and with Cookie, they make you feel like a welcomed guest.

I made 2 requests on open table which were taken care of without having to ask again which I appreciated. The food was excellent as usual (I’ve been here dozens of times). I liked the option of getting a small plate. I like variety so instead of getting a second crab cake I had the escarole and white bean side dish also delicious.

We dine there often but the last time it was not up to par. Oysters were funky and jalipeno pepper, which I asked for on the side, were imbedded into the arugula salad. Didn't realize they were as green as the arugula. Lobster and crab cake were good as usual. Because the noise level was extremely loud, I was forced to shout to my partner. Will the negatives stop us from dinning there again? Absolutely not.

I have been here twice with a friend. I read the great reviews and they probed true. I had a small filet minion with crab imperial, both times! The meat was delicious and tender and the crab was wonderful! My friend had the whole lobster the first time and loved it. The second time he had the pork chops and said they were the best he has ever had. The service is wonderful. The staff is pleasant and attentive. We will go back because now we can't resist!

I am always impressed that the help knows the menu so well and are so totally accommodating and polite. A bartender noticed that our table was wobbling and came to fix it without being asked. Food consistently good. We have lived in Margate since 1966. This is our favorite local place to come, either to the Oyster Bar or main restaurant. Cookie Till, the owner, is always around. We think that makes a great difference....and the desserts are all homemade. Kudos to Cookie and her entire staff.

Steve and Cookies is my favorite restaurant in South Jersey. It is consistently good, nicely served, and friendly with music that is truly background music. While I enjoy the front dining rom, it matters not where you sit. Every dining room is cozy.

I can't say enough good things about this establishment . We have eaten here several times on trips to the Jersey shore and have never been disappointed. I had a filet which was cooked perfectly and my husband had duck. Cookie happened to be in the restaurant and stopped by our table to see how our meal was. My husband thought his duck was a little tougher than usual, and much to our surprise, she sent us home with o complete dinner so he could have one done the way it should be. She also treated us to desert for our anniversary. Brownie pie! Yum! But we can't wait for the blueberry. Service was great, as always.

I love this restaurant but the menu was atypically boring. This was not true of the wine menu. Wine choices were abundant and our choice was great. When the menu is bare, I have the duck and it was good, crispy and well prepared, but not exciting.
