Decided to try this place because it was close. Wasn't expecting much, but was very pleasantly surprised. Excellent fresh seafood. As the name says, the food is steamed- not fried. Generous proportions and very tasty. I would have given it a perfect score, but our server was having an off night & kept vanishing (too busy?).

We are visiting the Gulf Shores area for the Mardi Gras weekend, and we wanted to have the best Royal Reds shrimp, so we took a local's suggestion and were very happy we did. The Gulf Shores Steamer certainly deserves its outstanding reputation. We had the little steamer platter for two, and it was an enormous quantity of wonderful seafood.... More

The food is not fried, which is good, it was OK, but have had better. They weren't busy, but the service was slow and didn't seem to care about the customers. There are better places to eat in the area.

Food ok, service OK but all and all there is way better food on the area. Server seemed flustered. Did not bring special small plate menu until requested​ Felt a little like we were an annoyance not a customer

Always enjoy my time with Jeff and Ashley at Gulf Shires Steamer! Great place to have a quick drink or sit down for a great meal. Healthy Steamed and Grilled, no fried food here! They do have food for land lovers as well. Love, love love me some Steamer!

Nothing is fried. Great mussels,big red's, snow crab and fresh local fish are found in this restaurant. Casual atmosphere with great staff to help you find a great fish a a reasonable price. It is a favorite place of all that visit the area.

Very dissatisfied. I have been going there for years since they were in Gulf Shores. I always order the big reds shrimp. This time they had no taste. They were hard to peel and seemed to not be fresh. They gave me another order after I complained. The new ones were not any better. Sad to say but I will... More

Have been going to this restaurant since it was actually in Gulf Shores and used to love it. This time not so much . Raw oysters were beyond tiny-not their fault but could have warned us. Steamed shrimp not up to par either. Corn and potatoes cold and no flavor. Sorry -used to be great.

Shared a 1# plate of royal red shrimp. They were hard to peel and fell apart. Drawn butter was some sort of concoction, not sure what, but was not clarified butter. The shrimp left an awful after taste, I think they were old shrimp and overcooked to boot.

This was our second visit and it was just as great as our first visit! Two of us split the crab stuffed whitefish and did not leave hungry. Sits on the canal leading to the intercoastal waterway. After our meal we took a nice walk on the docks throughout the marina.

Thank sally s
