Lunch menu is excellent and a real deal. I had baked oysters (6) Royal Reds (6) with a side of perfectly steamed broccoli. My husband had gumbo (excellent) shrimp sliders (3) and baby potatoes. Service was friendly and attentive. We will return.

We went to The Steamer for lunch. The menu was varied from platters to just a sandwich. The quality of the food was wonderful and the amount was more than ample. Prices were mid-range for this type of restaurant....no bad at all. The award winning staff was very attentive and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend.

I see no need to rate this place any further. The food is always consistently great and the staff is always cheerful and efficient. I can always expect the same excellent food and service. I'll not visit Gulf Shores without eating at The Steamer. I can't remember the server's name on our recent visit on 12/26 but she was a... More

My wife and I ate there a few days ago. I was good but with all the reviews, we expected excellent. The 1 thing that was excellent was the service. Our person was great.

I liked the fact that there were more steamed/baked items on the menu. I had the grilled trigger fish on rice and a bowl of gumbo. It was good, but I was just not impressed.

We are here during the week. It was our anniversary and didn't feel like goin to fancy place. We got the dozen oysters baked and they were awesome. We got the royal red platters. They were generous and delicious. We will be back soon.

Had a good dinner of oysters and crab while sitting in the outdoor patio (with heaters). Only downside, they wouldn't turn down the music so you could hear your companion talk.
