Friendly atmosphere, Food exceeded expectations! Expect a long waiting line but you can hang out at their antic store which is worth it. CASH ONLY! NO ALCOHOL! VERY FAMILY FRIENDLY. We'll visit again.

Nice portions, good seasoned and tasty entrees. This restaurant has the reputation by the locals to be a good restaurant. When asked to recommend a good seafood restaurant, this restaurant was either the first or second restaurant mentioned. They were right. Our server was delightful as they recommended various entrees from the menu. All I can say is mmmmm good.... More

O'Steens has great shrimp dinners. We enjoyed 12 shrimp with fries and coleslaw. The dinner service was prompt and polite. The desert was also delicious This restaurant does not take credit cards or debit cards so make sure you bring cash although this makes their prices very reasonable.

New to St.Augustine and picked this place out from TA. Great choice! Though the line was long we were in within 10 minutes. They have a great system and can really move people through this small place fast. Had food within 5 minutes of sitting down. But he best part is the shrimp. Just melt-in-your- mouth good.

They must use peanut oil set at a high temperature since the seafood is served with only a hint of brown on the coating with no grease taste. For dessert, we shared a coconut cream... More

Great family restaurant. Small with a long wait but they will even page you down at the English pub (short 3 minute walk) while you wait. The best shrimp and the Sweet potato casserole is Excellent but they only offer it 1 day a week I believe.

Birthplace of so many chefs and great restaurants here in St Aug. My daughter Jessica works here now but that was a long waiting line to get that job. As a family, we have always loved eating here. Ask for jessica.
