This was the best meal of our trip to Gulf Shores! The food was cooked to perfection. The server was nice and checked on us often. We will be back in September and looking forward to eating here again.

We love this place! They always have the best steamed shrimp. The food always tastes very fresh and is wonderful. The service is good and location is convenient. We ate there twice on this trip!

Had probally the best food on our trip. The steamed shrimp and crab legs were the best. The potatoes not that special. Gumbo also great. Didn't see waitress much but we didn't need her we were so busy opening our crab legs and shrimp. Would go back.

A girls week at the beach and we wanted some good seafood! The food was really good, the service was nice and the price was very good for all we had! We sat outside (which was very nice) and enjoyed our leisurely dinner of crab legs, oysters, shrimp, etc!

A bit expensive, actually, but we expected that. It is a tourist trap, after all. But the food was really good, the service was good, the atmosphere was good. We only tried 5 of the 7 available kinds of oysters, so we will certainly be back. A different menu from sister restaurant Shrimp Basket.

I think my biggest complaint about this restaurant was the temperature of my food. I ordered a platter of steamed shrimp and crab legs. When I received my plate, it wasn't exactly cold, but it didn't have that hot, fresh from the steamer temperature either. My wife ordered the crab cakes and said they were really good, and my son...

This was my second and last visit to the Steamer. We arrived at 2:30 after the lunch rush and was taken immediately to a dirty table. The waitress/hostess merely wiped ALL of the crumbs in the seats. Don't worry ma'am we took care of them for you. Server arrived relatively quick for our drink and appetizer order. We explained that... More
