I took my sister and 10 friends to Stevies last week 3/28/2009 for her birthday, it was awful. First off the waitress had an attitude, after 20 minutes I asked for a glass of water and a menu, she rolled her eyes and ignored me for 20minutes each time she walked by our table. Finally, my brother got her attention and asked again for water and menu's for the table. 5 people in our party had arrived, she then threw my water across the table, so hard it spilled and walked off. When another friend arrived 20 minutes later, we still had no food. The owner little midget man himself walks over and asked f we were eating because if not we needed to get up and leave! Yet the waitress never came to take out order, I explained that to him and he said he would send her right over. \r
Finally she took our orders and came back what felt like hours later with the wrong side orders, When I told her that's not what I ordered she rolled her eyes and said tha'ts what I'm eating! I was scared to send it back! Our next guest arrive, still no waitress, but here comes lil midget man who screamed at my 21 year old nephew "" are you eating, cause if not you gotta get up or pay a cover. My nephew told him he was drinking only and would pay the cover charge. He came back 20 minutes later being a complete clown screaming that he hadn't ordered yet. I told him the waitress never came back and that he needed to to calm down with all the agression, he told me he was agressive and I needed to deal with it. I asked for the check, the rest of our party hadn't even arrived! We had been there for a little over an hour.\r
When the bill came it was almost $400! And we hadn't started drinking yet! An arguement ensued, Stevie told me he was calling the police, I told him he should because he was robbing us, 4 people had received their dinner and noone was drinking because the waitress hadn't come back. After him screaming at me and asking me (a female) to take it outside, my niece added up the bill and found our bill was $140.00! He had over charged us by $260.00! He quietly apologised even though he loudly accused us of trying to dine and dash even though the food was still on the table untouched because we never got silverware to eat!\r
The music was too loud, the performer was grossly obese with an awful wig on her head, and a leather half top exposing her stomach, wailing loudly, so loudly we could not conversate! We all sat there blown away at the experience, my sister was almost in tears at how bad her birthday ""party"" was going. I WILL never go back there. \r
Also when I told my girlfriend about the experience, she shared with me a similiar experience but she is a celebrity wife and they charged her and her husband over $800! Seriously! They paid it because the owner became obnoxious and swore they would never go back. What use to be a great restaurant has become the epitome of a stereo typical black owned establishment, and I'm black so I do not mean this in a discriminatory way, I mean it in a shaking my darn head at the foolishness that is Stevie's way!
Pros: Absolutely Nothing good to say
Cons: Bad Attitudes, The owner has a nepolian complex!
