Went back to Steve's diner with friends and the kids, hadn't been in a couple years, was very pleased with the remodel. We really enjoyed our food... pancakes are enormous and if ordered as take out go in a pizza box as that is the only thing large enough. My daughter has fallen in love with cannoli pancakes, and they were almost even better cold! Multiple benedict versions to choose from as well. Jamaican me crazy coffee. What's not to like? Can be lines on the weekend.

Large delicious pancakes, excellent homemade cornbeef hash. You may have to wait for a table but worth the wait. Food is excellent.

The pancakes are huge. Servings generous. A small place in a strip mall and there usually is a line to be seated. I have been here many times for breakfast. The home fries tend to be over done. Pancakes are the size of the plate so only one or two will do.
Service is fairly prompt given that all tables and booths are full. The servers could be more pleasant. Pay the bill at the cash register which is at the counter in the back
that becomes crowded and again you stand in a line. Even though it is handicapped
accessible, there's no room for a wheelchair. No sign evident for the restrooms.

I just got home after going to Steve's for breakfast. We arrived at 11:00 am and it was chaotic to say the least. Food was good but the wait was unacceptable. It took 55 minutes to get our order. They had recently expanded the dining area but did not follow through with enlarging the kitchen. Therefore, they could not keep up with the orders. Our waitress was very accommodating given the circumstances.

When there is a line of folks waiting to get in, you know you've found a gem! Portions are HUGE, service is personable and friendly. A real neighborhood gem!
