The Kitchen Step is proud to showcase our beautiful indoor dining space as well as our outdoor patio for an unforgettable dining experience!  

Currently, we are only accepting reservations for dinner and brunch in our indoor dining room.  However, we welcome guests to walk-in at all times! 

Our bar and outdoor patio is available on a "first come, first serve basis" and we don't take reservations for these areas. We are more than happy to add you onto our waitlist, please stop by the host stand in person or give us a call. We will reach out to you as soon as a space becomes available. We are looking forward to serving you! 

Some additional notes we'd like to share about dining with us: 

If you're planning on joining us with children that need  highchair or stroller accommodations, please include them in your guest count when making a reservation. We are a small restaurant & want to be able to plan ahead accordingly, therefore you'll have the safest & most comfortable dining experience with us.

Please don't bring any beverages in with you from other establishments.  We have all kinds of delicious options that you can order & enjoy here! However, if you have a special bottle of wine you'd like to bring, we do have a $25 corkage fee per bottle.  In addition,   if you'd like to bring in a cake or cupcakes for a special occasion, we do have a fee of $3/per person "cake cutting fee" . 

Please feel free to call us with any questions or concerns you may have. We look forward to have you join us soon! Enjoy your day!
