| John and Jan Cox, owners and operators of Steven's Garden and Grill, have created a truely unique destination restaurant tucked deep in the heart of Downtown Mansfield. Housed in a spacious barn, the restaurant and it's wide front porch overlook a beautiful lawn and garden with several shade trees. Inside, oxidized tin and fence pickets line the walls along with other Texas themed decor - inspiration from the old Mansfield Feed Mill which has been in John's family since 1960 and is still in operation just across the street from the restaurant.
The Coxes initially owned and operated a landscaping business and garden center in the location, but today the couple's vision for the restaurant has consumed their time and talents. In business since September 2001, they have incorporated their appreciation for nature with their affection for good food. Most recently, they have been voted the best steak in Mansfield.
"Things are a little different, here at Steven's," boasts John, "aside from our quiet location and lack of fried foods, we encourage our customers to slow down and enjoy the experience! "The only request that the Coxes make is, "Don't forget how you got here!"
