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!

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.

Historic town that made me get off the highway, glad I did. Googled some restaurants and this place caught my eye. It sounded great. Ordered Pecan encrusted chicken with blackberry sauce and Salmon made with locally grown mushrooms and sauce, both dishes were fantastic. Pipped potato stack was great with the vegetables. Plated perfectly. Highly recommended! Loved it!

This is a charming restaurant located near the historic Opera House. Food was excellent as was the service. Servers were able to meet specific requests without a problem. Little plates were more than enough for the average appetite.

The food was excellent in the atmosphere felt like a white linen 40 years ago. The wait staff did an amazing job it was very quick and fast but yet not rushed. I would visit this place many more times and I do encourage you to get the steak or the fillet with crab cake.
