A Terrible Experience!! – Why anyone would spend their hard earned money at this place is beyond me...The food is mediocre at best and the service is horrible..The waitresses and waiters are not friendly, and the service is extremely slow..If you wanted a burger from the bar menu and you were in the dining room, you would be refused as the chef will not make a burger unless your at the bar...With all the good restaurants in Media, Pa., it is a wonder why people eat here.(maybe they are too intoxicated to notice)..To pay $38.00 and above for tough, bland, meat, and get horrible service and attitude, is not for me or my family...I will never go back to Stephens on State
Never Again – Had a very bad experience there recently. They took our drink order reasonably quickly. Not too much after the dinner order. But then the trouble began. 20 minutes plus passed and I finally complained - we were through our drinks and out of bread and hadn't even received our appetizers yet. Finally they came out, we were long finished with those - still no sign of the main course - when our waiter came over started clearing our plates and asked if anyone wanted dessert - to which I replied - we'd like our main dishes first! He got all confused - finally recovered and brought us new utensils etc. since he had cleared everything. Eventually the main dishes came. We finish with that and it turned out we had a coupon that seemed relevant to the meal we had. We presented it to our waiter who had to clear it with the owner - Stephen. They let us use it but not without making us feel bad about not presenting it upfront and making us feel like we were cheap. After the lecture - our waiter said "Otherwise - have a good night." I left a large tip in spite of the poor service to make the point that we were not cheap. I wrote on the credit card slip about how disappointed we were in the horrible service. Then I wrote "Otherwise - have a good night." We will NEVER go back there again. I suggest you don't either. BTW - we had a reservation and that was the kind of service we got. What was particularly disappointing was their need to make us feel bad about the coupon after having received such abysmal service. What a shame.
One of the best steak places in Del Co. – Reservations suggested.
I chose to go to Stephen's for a good steak. What I received was a great steak.
When you walk in the place is divided between 2, the left side is the bar, the right side is for dinner.
The light is dimmed low and the decor is retro.
There are less than 20 tables (hence the dinner reservations).
The service was fantastic.
I started with a soda from the bar and ordered a crock of french onion soup. The bowl was filled with many sweet onions and the cheese just melted right. I chose the filet, cooked medium. I beleive the meal was complete with a vegatable medley and potato. The streak was tasty, cooked with different spices, cooked exactly how i asked for it. It was tender, no fat whatsoever.
I couldn't eat dessert. I was stuffed.
