I don't get the negative reviews on here. This was my second visit and I found it to be excellent. There are so many little details that you don't see in other places. The owner greets you. The service spectacular. The waitress did not use...More

A dinner at Steinhilber's is an occasion...or it should be. The setting is always a surprise as you must approach this gem via residential streets. The outdoor seating with fireplace tables was lovely but just too chilly for a mid-November evening. We were ushered to...More

With the original owners' daughter and grandson running Steiny's, there is lots of pride in everything they do! Jeanne's incredible garden provides wonderful fresh produce that is incorporated into many dishes. It isn't on the menu, but ask for the "Crab Lynnhaven"--it is pure crab!

We took 2 couples with us who had not been before; they loved the experience and will return. The fried shrimp always lives up to its reputation: The Best!

It's located at the back of a residential area on a small salt-water creek. Great service, great food, great view and restaurant. Make a reservation.

Made reservations the day prior for the following 6:45PM dinner. Seated quickly upon arrival in the middle of a tightly packed and noisy main dining room. Appetizers ordered were a good serving of Oysters Rockefeller and Crab cakes. Entrees included: 10oz Prime Rib, flounder, scallops...More

No but the wait staff wears white jackets, so as revdillon said, dress nicely. It's really a great, and upscale, restaurant.
