good steamed seafood!

We ate here our first night in Orange Beach. My husband and I had the steamed platter for 2 and it was more than we could eat. Service was good. Seafood was very good. My only complaint with this and every restaurant of this type is that they always serve corn and potatoes with the meal that appear... read more

This place is on a canal bye the water. Indoor parking garage. Beautiful outdoor mall with gorgeous shops. The food can't be beat. Royal reds are the best shrimp yu can eat. The marinaded crab claws were very delicious. The fresh catch the day we went was the Red Snapper. Over the top blackened. The Slaw has a touch of... More

Sheer heaven on a fork. The best seafood you'll ever get. Fresh! Steamed is our favorite and Royal Red shrimp is fabulous steamed. But they have other methods of cooking also. You can't go wrong here. Your steamed shrimp come with heads on, so be ready to get your hands a little dirty!!! Worth it, though.

First time to the area and went here due to the reviews. We were not disappointed. The Steamer for 2 was delicious, the best shrimp I've ever had, so tender and fresh. It comes with shrimp, crab, mussels, oysters....but more shrimp can be substituted if you don't want a certain thing, which we didnt want oysters, so we got more... More

If you are going to offer craft beers, you need to educate the servers on exactly what that is because Budweiser is not craft beer.

We get the platter you share and it has shrimp, crab legs, new potatoes, corn and slaw. Very tasty! I'm not crazy about steamed oysters but they are in that platter as well and I'm sure if you like them they are good.

Laid back atmosphere, nothing fried here! ...royal reds are steamed, head on and although difficult to peel are delicious. They don't taste like shrimp at all but more like a cross between lobster and crab. The other two members of our party ordered the house special, stuffed fish and described it as Just ok. A little pricey.

My family and I have been come to Steamers for years and it never disappoints. We usually eat here at least twice while we're in town. Food is delicious and staff is always friendly.
