We celebrated our anniversary and Theo’s complimented us with champagne! The food is excellent, we’ll worth the value you spend. I recommend the truffle fries, salmon, and the French dip. Low lighting and quiet/romantic ambiance.

Theo’s never disappoints! Great service, great drinks, and delicious food — highly recommend the shrimp tempura appetizer (a great happy hour special), and the steak frites. Steak was cooked perfectly to medium rare. Tables are nicely spaced, and seating is comfortable. I appreciate that happy hour specials are available at the tables, and not just at the bar.

The staff and atmosphere was both really nice. Our appetizer, salad, and side dishes were delicious! Unfortunately, our steak (Chateaubriand) had absolutely NO flavor! We added salt and pepper, but had to sop up the au jus from out potatoes and asparagus to give it some sort of flavor. It was very disappointing. Fortunately, we ended our meal with a delicious piece of blueberry pie!

Sat at bar for happy hour which is super! The bartender is fabulous and she was fun to watch! We wish we had stayed at bar to eat because service in restaurant was very slow. It was Half price burger night (Thursday) and the stinky blue burger was so good. Again, wish we had eaten at bar. Better ambiance there and great service!

We were disappointed with Theos. Our server was wonderful, but the food was very mediocre. I had steak frites and my husband a bacon cheeseburger, ordered med/rare. Steak pretty tasteless, probably why they serve it with a chipotle sauce, and burger came well done. Wedge salad was the worst I have ever had.
We would not return.

Food was good. Service ? I felt that our waiter spent a lot of time with the high rollers at the table next to ours who were spending a lot more money. We got our food and, IMHO, it had spent some time under a heat lamp.
We are local. We will still keep going to Theo's. The criticism is not major.

The steaks were undercooked. I had to send mine back twice to get it cooked to medium+. My sister had finished her dinner before I even was able to start mine. The rest of the food was very average. The waitress was good but overworked with too many tables. We had to flag her down to get a drink refill. Overall, a big disappointment and even bigger since they charged premium prices. We won't be going back.

Honestly, we had such a disappointing experience. My steak was completely charred on one side. I literally had to cut off the burnt piece to make it edible. My husband's was medium rare when he ordered medium well. He sent it back to get it cooked some more and it took like 15 minutes. I had already finished my dinner by the time he got his back. We ate at the locating in Cambridge two weeks before this and it was phenomenal. Best filet I have ever had. It was super disappointing to have such a bad experience at the St. Michaels location.

We ordered the Chateaubriand with a BBQ shrimp appetizer. The shrimp were tasty but the portion was skimpy. We shared the meat. It was fantastic. Extremely tender and done exactly as we asked. Medium rare.

Dessert of blueberry pie was OK, not special. The pastry crust was tough and not tasty and the blueberry filling was a bit too starchy.

My partner's cocktail took too long to come and they got my wine order wrong. I was brought a white wine instead of the malbec (red) I'd ordered.

Service was attentive and pleasant.

Food is always good, with nice size portions, although not always cooked to our liking. My husband order his steak frits medium well and they came out medium rare and the fries where soggy. Since the wait was so long to get our food, he did not send it back. Not sure if it was because we were upstairs, but service was very slow. They also have no clue how to handle the frequent pier program. This is the second time we have gone to Theo's and not gotten credit for our meal because the server didn't know how to do the points, ironically, these are the most expensive meals, so the most points!

We had such a great experience here! The staff is friendly and helpful upon entering the restaurant. Our server, Charmaine, was friendly, prompt, knowledgeable about the menu, and super personable!

Every single thing we ordered was delicious. Their bread basket is impressive and so yummy. My husband got the Sunday dinner which is their meatloaf entree. The price is reduced to $12 on Sundays. It was SO good! I got a Caesar salad with steak and it was delicious. Theo's cooks your steak exactly as ordered!

I only wish we had larger appetites during our visit as the happy hour menu is honored throughout the restaurant with great prices and selections. We were told the BBQ shrimp is to die for and that was on happy hour but we were still slightly full from our lunch.

We went on my husbands birthday and got a complimentary sundae which was enough for 3-4 people to enjoy.

Overall great experience!! We will definitely be back!!
