Honestly it was the worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had. We went there for our anniversary last night. Our waitress was not very prompt and didn’t check on us very much. Our appetizer of crab dip was okay, seared tuna was a very tiny portion for the price. Our meals were crab cake entree I asked for fries instead of the asparagus but wanted to keep the mashed potatoes. My meal came out with no mashed potatoes but double fries and took our waitress 5 minutes to even check on us. Then while eating my crab cake I found a shell in every single bite. I took them out and put them on my appetizer plate, when the waitress came over I showed her all the shells (5) with only 1/3 of my crab cake gone and she grabbed my app plate went and got the manager. The manager came over with an attitude and said I heard there’s a problem with the crab cake. I said yes the waitress just took my app plate with all the shells on there I told her there were shells in my crab cake she looked at me like it was so normal for there to be so many shells in there. Then she said what do you want me to do about it. I was so fed up at this point I asked her to just take it off the check. She had a huge attitude. My husband had the rockfish and it was cooked bloody so it had a film of blood and was disgusting. Rice was hard not fully cooked. Overall bad experience. If the manager was nicer it wouldn’t have been a problem mistakes happen but she acted as though we inconvenienced her

Ran out of crab cakes. Sold us at best choice cuts of sirloin for $30 each filet mignon. Mashed potatoes and asparagus were very runny. Very disappointed will not return.

We usually love this place. It’s our go to place to eat but the food was poor and the service was extremely slow for the second time in a row. It’s like they reduced the number of servers.

Food is usually good but my fried green tomatoes this time around were pretty bland. Our server was hungover (maybe even still drunk from the night before) and the restaurant is starting to show signs of real age. Time for a deep clean; surprised that didn’t happen during initial Covid restrictions.

Enjoyed a wonderful Memorial Day lunch on the outdoor patio. The service was prompt and professional and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the Crab Grilled Cheese and the Half Crab Soup/Half Cream of Crab soup. I'm a repeat customer and this is one of my favorite places to frequent in Bel Air.

Our food came out in a timely manner but our waiter, Josh, disappeared several times. We had to hunt him down to pay the tab, bring us water, and take the payment. I think he was interested in flirting with the hostess. I would have given my rating 5 stars if we had better waiter service.

It was mother's day and I meal was wrong and by the time I got my meal the rest of my family was done and my complete meal didn't even arrive, I still had to wait for my fries. Then we were given the wrong dessert. Which was fixed quickly. Waitress never apologized when she gave us the bill with nothing taken off.

We went there on a Thursday evening, and fortunately we did have reservations, because it was quite crowded. The restaurant has done an excellent job with spacing due to Covid issues.
The food was good enough that we will most definitely make a return visit, however, our waiter seemed quite overwhelmed and somewhat distracted. We had to ask for the candle to be lit on our table several times, and we had to try and catch him for water refills, extra napkins, dessert, check, etc. With that said, it will not prevent us from returning.

We've been to Steelfish twice now and it has been excellent both times. Our server Julia was very personable and attentive. The food as always was fresh and delicious. We highly recommend the Steelfish Grille. We'll be coming back for many more visits.

My boyfriend and I took his father and my grandfather for their birthdays. They food and drinks were fantastic, it wasn’t too crowded and our waiter, John, was one of the best waiters we’ve had. This was all 4 of us, first time eating here and we’d totally come back or recommend! Great nachos, great crabcakes, great wraps and my ribeye was fantastic! Thanks for the great atmosphere.

Very disappointed in the food. My reservation stated that I had a garlic allergy which they acknowledged at the time we were dotted. However, I had a garlic allergy attack shortly after I left the restaurant so they clearly did not communicate with the kitchen and the bar since I ordered a Bloody Mary.

Ordered cream of crab soup. Not consistent from recent last visit. This time minimal crab and more soup. Need to understand this as the recent first visit was outstanding in regards to the same cream of crab soup and overall experience.

I think the prices that they charge are a bit extreme I ordered a shrimp and rice and the shrimp were the size Of a nickel not that that really microscopic. The noise level was unbelievable and then you add live music onto top of that and a very crowded bar area that was very small it was just very noisy.

Food and service as good as usual. Only issue was time it took to get food out of the kitchen. Which was lengthy. Steele Fish has become very popular which is great but makes it difficult but worth it for regulars like my wife and I.
