Lovely restaurant/bar, overlooking the sea. Great menu and special board, so something for everyone. I had the Chicken Tikka, as curry of the day, and my son had an Hawaiian burger with chips. Both meals arrived looking very good, were very tasty, but too much and neither of us could finish. The atmosphere was lovely for a december lunchtime near... More

Visited for Sunday lunch. Had roast turkey which came with what you expect, new and roast potatoes, and six veg! Had no room for dessert which is unlike me! Prices are not cheap, but portion size reflected in price. Very good for 'pub grub'.

We have just finished eating our delicious meals. We highly recommend the Steamer Inn to everyone who visits Shanklin. The food and the service was first class. The two staff on duty tonight were very friendly and welcomed us when arrived.

A party of us called as walk-ins one cold and windy night. We all got seated together very quickly having got our own drinks from the bar. There was quite a good selection on the menu and we chose a variety of things between us. The chilli-burger I got was excellent and plenty of it. For me the edge was... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I'm glad that the majority of your experience was positive. Sadly we do not offer table service and ask for all customers to order all food and drink from the bar. All staff are taught to do this upon starting with us. When we are quiet a manager may offer...

We had had a coffee here earlier in the day and liked what we saw, so returned for an evening meal. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the restaurant is overlooking the beach and sea, making a great atmosphere. I chose whitebait as a starter and my wife chose the tomato and herb soup. My dish came served with... More

Visited just before kitchen closed at 8pm but warm welcome and friendly staff. Homemade quiche was delicious and garlic chicken ditto with very generous portions. Wonderful sea views. Other diners were families, solo, couples and friends celebration. Relaxed in good location. Eat in or out. Would definitely revisit.

Great and we enjoyed the live music. We were pleased that food was served all day as we arrived for lunch at about 4pm!

We went with friends, family & children. Great view of the bay and real ales were Ringwood's Bitter and Addleston's Cloudy Cider. The seafood chowder was very good, and filling.

The Steamer Inn offers good value food in a lovely seafront setting. Good choice of vegetarian options and good sized puddings.
