I had the flounder again and my wife had the crab cake appetizer and a Cesar salad and the chocolate cake. As usual all were excellent! I recommend Steven W's as the best place to eat if you are in Newberry! Prices are reasonable, service is excellent and the food is great!

We dined at Steven W"s last night, and I cannot say enough about how perfect everything was. Our server was friendly, helpful, professional, and attentive. The food was exceptional, from the crab cakes to the shrimp with Tasso ham, to the prime rib, to the pecan chicken. We were all raving! And the bread, yum! Their special soup was a... More

In town overnight with prior intention to dine at Stephen W's based on a recommendation of family who have attended events at the Opera House. We were not disappointed. The food was very good. The Mahi-Mahi-Mahi was excellent. The waitress recommended her favorite desert of fruit and ice cream in an almond bowl (made in house) with caramel and chocolate... More

White table clothes, servers in ties, great ambiance. Food was delicious. Hubby said the flounder was incredible. Great celebration place. Shorts, t shirts and even Jeans may be out of place

Marvelous all the way around! My Cajun Shrimp & Scallop Fettuccini with snow peas was perfect. The shrimp and scallops were large and sauteed just right; the pasta was well prepared and the dish was delicious. The potato encrusted salmon was done extremely well and the taste was divine. Can't say enough about this restaurant. A must-do when in Newberry.

Staying across the street at the wonderful Hampton Inn in Newberry so this was perfect for us after a long ride here to escape the hurricane. Great waiter and great food! I recommend the desserts especially the praline shell with ice cream and fruit. I was able to cut the filet with my butter knife!

We ate at Steven W's before a show at the Newberry Opera House. It was our first visit to this restaurant or any restaurant in Newberry, and we were pleasantly surprised with the quality of food and great service. I had the potato leek soup and it was delicious. I followed it with a special of red snapper with lump... More

Steven's bistro has been a main stay in Downtown Newberry for years. The food has always been good. Opera house goers have made Steven's the restaurant of choice

I believe Steven is selling or sold. The food has gone down over the years. It is in a good location across from the Opera House. The crispy fried flounder their signature dish is still great. Ive been going there since it opened about 18 years ago. Now I go to Figaro and Cabana instead of Steven W. It was... More
