I visited Steamer twice the week of Spring Break. Both times they wanted to seat us in the bar. My first experience was with my husband and the 4 teen girls with us. The table beside ours was full of customers that had too much to drink. (Literally, trying to surf the bench). I don't recommend sitting in the bar... More

Let me preface this by saying I prefer steamed seafood to fried seafood. In that aspect, Steamer did not disappoint. The oysters and crawfish were good. But the Royal reds were the real star of the show. Easily some of the best I've ever eaten. I highly recommend them if you're in the area. And you should also save room... More

We went here with our friends on spring break. The food was not the best, our friend found bugs, yes more than one, in his drink, dirty bathrooms and not much for the kids to eat for appetizers. I do have to say the waiter tried to accommodate the kids. He also seemed new but was nice. Just wasn't a... More

We stopped here for lunch a couple of years ago and had a fabulous meal of fried seafood. This time, however, we were quite disappointed. We went for dinner and were looking forward to chowing down on snow crab legs and royal red shrimp. We were also in the mood for a pre-dinner cocktail. The waitress was very nice but... More

Good concept - steamed food in a sea of fried food restaurants. We were however unimpressed with the food and the price for lunch was high. With so many seafood restaurants in the area we wouldn't go back, although maybe we just hit it on a off day.

Wife and I were on vacation in the area. Decided to try seafood for dinner. Saw this as we were driving by and decided.."What the heck!" Had some good reviews on Yelp. so decided, "Go For it!" Glad we did. Not super busy, but no waiting for a table. Waitress was not hovering over us, but attentive. Recommended the Crab... More

We were here last year and had to come back. We each had a Cobb salad (wonderful) and split one pound of steamed Royal Red Shrimp. Look at the size of these critters! My husband asked if they had garlic bread and our server said "no." Next thing we know, she came back with four large pieces of divine garlic... More

Ordered a salad. Tomatoes (cherry) were so old they were splitting. Salad dressing had expired two months before. Waitress could not find any dressing within date. Sent the salad back. Never offered apology or other item. I would not go here again. What else are they not paying attention to that can make people sick!?

We went at an "off" hour, so the service was great. We could sit anywhere & chose outside on the harbor. However, one of the huge boats started the engine and the fumes overwhelmed us so we moved inside. My husband had a great juicy burger & I enjoyed the crab cakes, very good, nice portion, friendly staff.

Thank Cathy R
