The steamed shrimp were a nice size they were not over cooked and had a wonderful flavor. They have nice outdoor seating and during the spring and fall it's a nice place to sit and enjoy.

On our recent trip to the shrimp festival, we wanted good seafood that was not fried. The restaurant name "steamer and baked oysters" got our attention. The gumbo was below average and the baked oysters were just terrible. The kitchen was under staffed and everything about the service was poor. I would not recommend eating at this restaurant

Just as the title said, and lots of it, we sent the first batch of steamed ones back. The crab was a little over cooked but not too bad, the sausage shrimp and potatoes were really good. The place was clean and employees were friendly and knowledgeable. Had better and worse, I would eat there again.

My wife and I were out looking for souvenirs to send to our grandchildren. We noticed The Steamer & Baked Oyster Bar tucked in between two souvenir shops. We decided to have lunch. We shared the shrimp and Royal Reds shrimp platter. The waitress was friendly and knew the menu. This was the best shrimp I have ever had! The... More

This was our first meal of a 4 day trip. Food was great but the staff was even better. Will be back!

We had the bacon wrapped scallops which were excellent and very reasonable in terms of price. It is one of our favorite dining places in the area.

Went for a late supper & there was a lineup/waiting list to get in so it took about 30 minutes (which is usually a good sign right?!). Our waitress was very friendly, attentive & efficient. We had the huge platter to share & they let us sub for raw oysters which I appreciated. All the seafood on the platter was... More

We own a condo at Gulf Shores for over 10 years but never tried Steamer's until Oct 2014. The 4 of us were very impressed with the service and the food. I got a grilled fish sandwich that was out of this world. The bread was excellent very soft and tasty. My husband got a dozen raw oysters and ordered... More

$17 for blackened shrimp appetizer? What a joke! Next to impossible to peel the royal reds and get the meat out of the snow crabs. Way over cooked! Very pricey for what you get.
