"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."

Best pork chop on the planet! I don't even eat sweet potatoes and I devoured these. Add a grapefruit martini and you have a complete winner. The chicken and the halibut were also superb according to our companions. And Jessica was terrific. Thank you

Food is always good but service was poor on our last visit. Waited a long time just to get water and the drinks were very slow in coming. We sat a long, unreasonable time to get our order taken. We sat in a booth where the bar is located and it was not comfortable because it was very noisy and busy.

We have eaten here before & the food was excellent , this time , I guess because it was mothers day & very busy , the food suffered. It was still good but not the excellent we expect here. The service was not affected , our server (Tiffany) did a great job. Like I said it was very busy & we where seated near a large & extremely loud party (fun is great extremely loud is not), this of course is not the establishments fault. Normally a great place & we will be back but on this day we have to rate it a little lower.

We ordered crab cake. It was small, and plate only had slaw salad. could use a starch, potato or rice.
The meatloaf dinner was much larger and better

Once again we were amazed that no matter what you order, the dish is better than whatever you ordered the last time you ate at S&C. The dishes are fresh and the flavors are delicious. The staff is extremely knowledgeable about each of the dishes and the wine. Service is always courteous and never rushed. I guess now all we have to do is wait for the best blueberry pie (only served when blueberries are in season) in the world. We’ll be back again.

This is my second time dining at Steve & Cookies and it has yet to disappoint. My family and I dined here for my mother’s 62nd birthday and it was beyond perfect. Our server, Tito, was one of, if not the best server I’ve ever had at any restaurant. He was efficient and informative, yet not overwhelming. I always get the pork chop, and my family got a variety of seafood and steaks. Every dish was cooked perfectly. Tito then gave my mother a complimentary dessert platter, composed of 6 different mini desserts, and they were some of he best desserts I’ve ever tasted!! We will absolutely be returning! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

second visit - thought by going before the heavy summer season we would have a better experience. food was ok - service just ok - people on top of people and the drink costs outrageous. overall walked away thinking it was not worth it and probably will not go back. I would still recommend to those that want seafood but would suggest to eat at 5p and maybe there would be a little more attention to detail when not as busy.

One of the class places at the shore in Margate. Has been that way for many years. Excellent service and well prepared food from a diverse menu. Crab cakes are superb.

Steve & Cookie's is consistently excellent. The food is always pleasing to the pallet and fresh. The service was outstanding.
We were celebrating our 20th anniversary and our waitress brought out our dessert with a candle on a beautifully decorated plate. To our surprise our dessert was on the house.
Cookie always comes around and makes sure her guest are pleased.
Classy establishment!

This was a planned dinner with special friends. We have dined many times before at Steve and Cookies with our children and with our friends. It is without a doubt one of our favorite places to dine. We enjoy tremendously sitting at the bar and speaking with Bruce. He is engaging and doesn't mind our questions. He is friendly and does a fantastic job!!! Our waitress was welcoming and friendly as well. She took care of all of our requests and drinks just perfectly!!!

Our food as always was delicious. The filet and cowboy steaks were done to perfection. The selection of veggies (brussel sprouts, roasted butternut squash and escarole with beans) were just delicious.

It is our daughter's favorite place so we also purchased her a gift certificate to enjoy with her husband.

Thank you for a great dining experience!!!
