All of kiddos said the chicken tenders were very plain....absolutely bland. They tried ketchup, ranch, avocado ranch....you name it. Nothing helped. The tacos however were exceptional!!!! Thank you

I always love Steve’s Landing. I don’t like the two-person tables at the end of the bar so much and that’s where we were at, but I understand. Also, an air vent was blowing right on us there so it was kind of cold. Server had a great personality and we liked him but didn’t check on us quite as quickly as would have been nice. Place was busy though, so understandable. I never leave there unhappy though!

The food was excellent. Probably hands down, the best beer battered fried shrimp I've had and I grew up on the Texas gulf coast. Service was slow, which is understandable given the situation with COVID has left restaurants short staffed but we did have reservations. The table wasn't ready and once seated, it took over 10 minutes for a server to come to our table. The staff was friendly and apologetic. It was very loud in the restaurant. We had a party of 8 and there was no way we could all communicate with each other.

One of our favorite places to visit when we are on Bolivar. Our server was very easy going and we all liked how he took care of the kids and ladies first, then then the men. Additional staff that helped bring out the food and drinks were just as nice. Everything we ate was delicious. Always a good time.

Always a lovely time at Steve’s Landing. We ate there two times this week. The food is great and so are the views. Last night we had the crabcakes , the fried mushrooms, shrimp tikka and blackened catfish. We had very good service and enjoyed our time. Steve’s is the best restaurant on the peninsula. The parking is sometimes a challenge.

Great sunset dinner, the fish tacos were wonderful. The shrimp and grits are interesting, the sauce is a Tika Masala, so it tends to cover up the jalapeno cheese grits which is unfortunate because they are amazing. I'll definitely go there again!

Very fun and special birthday celebration. Reserved table on the deck was ready upon arrival; service was prompt and friendly; Shrimp Tikka, crab cakes, and chicken friend steak were all delicious. Looking forward to returning soon. Inside dining is really loud, but outdoors is lovely. Enjoyed the view over the Intracoastal canal, and the barge traffic.

Great experience! Table was ready when we got gheee. Sat right by the water and watched the ships and birds go by. Ceviche tostadas and jalapeño grits were great. Chicken fried steak was tough. Fried and grilled shrimp were excellent. No room for dessert I’m afraid. All of our plates, silverware, and glasses were disposable. Not sure if it’s always like that or just bc of coronavirus. Not a dealbreaker just unexpected.
