Great venue

Great place, great food, fab for the family, make sure it's on your list for a meal while in Shanklin, gets busy at peak times, really nice terrace and I'm sure it is lovely in the sun - shame we didn't have much this week!!!!

Eaten here a few times over the last couple of years. Always go for the lite bites which are great value for money. The staff are helpful and friendly.

The Steamer was very busy with all tables filled with diners when we went in.

Lovely food and great staff on the seafront at Shanklin. You could not wish for a better place to sit and watch the sea whether it's raining or sunny.

Ordered seafood appetizers and main courses but had to do a take away of main meal as appetizers were quite substantial. Entire setting was enjoyable especially the view... More
