Country Breakfast and Daily Lunch Specials,

General Info
In 1968 when the restaurant was opened it was owned by John Baganakis, Owner/Manager and by Steve and Chrysa Sacalis, husband and wife. John chose the name “MAMA STEVE’S” to honor Mrs. Sacalis, and perhaps for the attention that a catchy name might get. At that time the Sacalises, first generation Greeks, were seventy nine and eighty years old and John, second generation Greek, was only twenty seven years old. Steve and Chrysa operated their own successful restaurant so they never worked at “MAMA STEVE’S”. Their daughter, Betsy Sacalis and Julie Wright, John’s sister were hostesses at “MAMA STEVE’S” for a short time when the restaurant first opened. In the beginning they served breakfast, lunch and dinner but in 1969, they began serving only breakfast and lunch with hours from 7:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. ”MAMA STEVE’S” has always been successful, and for many years there were diners lined up around the building from opening till closing. Maybe, that’s why there are so many pancake houses in Williamsburg. After the Sacalises died in ’82 and ’83 John purchased their interest. He became sole proprietary until his death in 2001. Today, Leslie Wright, John’s niece is the manager and owns “MAMA STEVE’S” with her brother Mark Wright. Over the year “MAMA STEVE’S” has always been a favorite of locals and visitors alike. We hope you enjoyed being here and will return soon.

We were very happy with the service. The pancakes were good and the other items were ok. A little room for improvement but overall it was not bad at all.



Just Okay

Known as a pancake house, I was not impressed with their pancakes at all. Their coffee was okay. The bacon was delicious, but the "hostess" and waitress/server barely spoke unless spoken to. introductions were nill by the server. Thumbs down for this one.
