Steam Kettle Cooking is a unique way of preparing foods.  We cook your entrée right in front of you in jacketed steam kettles, these kettles cook the food evenly and fast without over cooking, due to the temperature and surface area of the individual kettles.  Each dish can be customized to the liking of each guest.  We give you a spicy level of one to ten and even hotter if one so desires.  Our food is mostly Cajun Creole Style with some regional flare.  Our most popular dish is the Pan Roast a tomato cream based dish with special spices, trinity (green peppers, onions, and celery) and served with several choices of seafood, chicken, and even andouille sausage; topped off with jasmine rice. The setting creates an interactive dining experience with the chefs and the other patrons… We are truly the “Cheers” of Cooking.  We so look forward to having you join us in the near future.

Chef Ritter has been in the restaurant business for 30 plus years.  His involvement with Steam Kettle Cooking started in 1995 at the Oyster Bar in The Palace Station Casino,  Las Vegas.  He spent 12 years there helping develop the menu, honing his craft, and preparing for the day when he would open up his own restaurants.  Chef Ritter left the Oyster Bar in 2007 and went on to do some Restaurant Consulting; finally ending up in Southern California.  He stayed in contact with a couple of customers from his days at Oyster Bar who were interested in opening restaurants in the Orange County area and they decided it was time to bring Steam Kettle Cooking to Orange County.
