Live Steve and Cookies. We've been coming here many years and we always have an exceptional experience. Menu is always changing, fresh locally sourced produce and a very creative team in the kitchen. A very generous bartender as well💖

Steve and Cookies is always a nice way to spend an evening at the Jersey Shore. Off season the atmosphere is cozy and the staff particularly attentive. Diverse menu has something for everyone

Always a delight to go to Steve & Cookies. The food was great again from the Mac and Lobster dish to the stuffed Pork Chops. Great view looking out at the Bay and the server we had was very attentive. All in All I can't miss when looking for a special restaurant to go to during Restaurant week.
