The food was wonderful but the price was pretty high. Expect to spend a $25 minimum per person at this place. It was really good though and I will be back.

Avoid the fettuccine Alfredo even if it's with shrimp. Also avoid chips and salsa appetizer. Chips were stale and salsa was not good. ($5.99 totally overpriced) Others in group had oysters and they said that was good!

We arrived the same day Tropical Storm Nate left, and several area restaurants were closed because their parking lots were flooded. Because of that, they were probably busier than normal and oysters, a menu staple, weren't available. After a 10 - minute wait, we were...More

We tried this for the first time this week. Wonderful food! We were seated quickly as well! The price was great when splitting the platter for two which was a lot of food! Will definitely be going back again.

Outstanding food and service provided. Even though the price is a little high the great service and food quality makes it okay. The server was excellent and accommodating to the few extra request that was made. Seafood quality excellent!

As a tradition I always get a dozen raw oysters while on vacation in Gulf Shores and I always get them from a different restaurant each year. The Steamer gets their oysters from Louisiana and I was a little leery as I'm a Apalachicola Oyster...More

Someone recommended this place. Sorry, I took their advice. Worse meal in a long time . Overcooked shrimp, luke warm sausage, water-logged corn on the cob, runny margarine for butter. Awful. Would give it a "zero" if I could.

Cold over cooked, salty and soggy! Crab clusters and shrimp stuck in shells. Very disappointed. Would not recommend or return. Server friendly and apologetic
