Nice dinner, great seafood!

Lucky for is the temperature had dropped, and we were able to eat on the patio without being miserable and waiting in line to be seated. We split a seafood trey with 1 lb of shrimp, corn on the cob, red potatoes, sausage, and 3 clusters of crab legs for $29. Make sue you head to Matt's Homemade... read more

Good, but not as good as I had hoped. Royal reds were overcooked, and crab legs were small and very little meat..We ate on the patio, and service was average for a tourist area...

The Steamer and Baked Oyster Bar is advertised as a sister restaurant to Mikees and The Shrimp Basket but completely different. All menu items are either raw, steamed, or baked. Nothing fried. We chose to sit out on the deck/porch at picnic style tables. We were waited on promptly by our server who was very attentive and did a very... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat, the food always taste fresh, it's filling but not heavy on your stomach. The bathrooms have been remodeled since I last visited and they are really clean and nice but to my knowledge there was not a changing table and I needed one to change my one year olds diaper, so...

We took small children here for lunch on a Sunday. We sat outdoors on the dock, kids enjoyed looking at the back of large private boats in the dock. There were also jelly fish in the water, kids enjoyed watching them. The service was very good, but it was 3p, so they were slow at this time. Ribeye was good,... More

Service was terrible, entire place smelled like garbage. Food not only wasn't fresh but was not edible. Returned one entree based on looks alone. Returned the étouffée after one bite and having to spit it out. By far my worst dining experience at the beach and maybe in my life time.

We are a party of 10 and were seated within 15 minutes on a Saturday night - shocking for how busy this area is at this time of year! Waitress was fabulous and the food was SO GOOD! They have Royal Red shrimp for a small up charge and they are so worth it. The crab clusters were cooked perfectly... More

This place is really bad. Flies everywhere, dried food on the walls. Service was bad and when the food finally arrived it had no taste at all. You shouldn't have to salt their "specialty ", steamed shrimp, to try and get flavor. Prices are also very high for what you get. Disappointed!
