Steve's - Bathurst n of Wilson
So...heard about this place from a couple of folks...good "family" restaurant...all day breakfasts, burgers, club sandwiches, omlettes and supposedly great greek salads. They`ve been on Bathurst since 1946 so they must be doing something right...
My chowpal and I went there for a late lunch today...I have to say, I was impressed...I had a toasted club on whole wheat with a side greek salad and my chowpal had a large greek salad, lox and onion omlette with fries.
Verdict? Good solid food...my club had "real" slices of turkey, nice crisp bacon etc....the greek salads were particularly good...they bring you a squeeze bottle of dressing so you can put as little/much on as you like...nice touch. The dressing may not be totally authentic but it was tasty nonetheless...
My chowpal said his omlette was a bit overdone/dry for his liking but very tasty...fries were nothing special....
I think we'll be back to try some other things...checked out the burgers at another table and they looked good...corned beef hash...yum...
Anyone else have any experiences with Steve's? I believe they also have another location on Yonge St in Thornhill..
Yeah - Steve's is always good and reliable, and their Greek salads are particularly good even if not authentic as you point out. Its a good diner, perhaps my favorite TO one. Nothing on their menu could conceivably put Steve's on Diner's Drive-ins and Dives, but its reliable and decent.
Agree...no...it's not anything earth shattering but I thought it was good solid diner type food...I believe there is a place for that for sure...I will be going back...
As my original post said...we did not think the fries were great either but I can overlook that...will just have a side salad instead!
Went to Steve's In Thornhill this past friday...
I ordered the club (sans tomatoes) and my friend ordered the special half chicken with soup.
Food: Overall good, I tried a bit of my friends soup (split pea) it was slightly over salty, but still good flavour, didn't try his chicken, but it was a large protion, and with a side of fries, cowslaw and the soup was a very good deal for the $11ish it cost.
My club was as tochowchick said, real 'pieces' of turkey, nice bacon, and large size. I would have preferred some cheese on there, I should have asked b4 I placed my order. Fries are nothing special, frozen mccain i am guessing?
large portion size, good price, good meal. Only problem, service, very poor. waitress never refilled our water until we asked... twice. but it was a friday lunch, and slow, so maybe she wasn't 100% focused, but no excuse IMO.
would go again, and recommend for families
here are same pics...

my friend also swears by this place, and he goes at least once a week (to either location)
