We had the platter for 2 people with a variety of steamed items like shrimp, crab, oysters, clams, potatoes, and corn. Great food! We will return next time we visit.

This place came very highly recommended by a local resident. He said it's a little pricey, but if you want good Royal Red Shrimp, get it at the Steamer. We were seated immediately and the waitress was prompt. The food seemed to take a while to receive and once it was placed in front of me, the plate was looking... More

The large red circle with the line thru "fried" says it all. The food is steamed. Shrimp Poboy was great. I wouldn't waist my time on the crab claws. Not much there but, they were good. Good selection on the menu.

This is a place we always eat while we're at the beach. And, as usual, it didn't disappoint. The seafood is always fresh and the service polite and helpful. We order the dish that two people can share that comes with crab legs, shrimp, muscles, corn and potatoes. It's almost more than we can eat. Cannot wait to eat there... More

If you love FRESH seafood, this place cannot be beat! It's all steamed and plenty of it! Probably the best I've ever had and I've been all over the world for fresh seafood.

This establishment doesn't face the Gulf but the marina across the road. Don't hold that against them though as the view of the water and boats is gorgeous. We sat outside at a picnic table under an umbrella. We didn't have to move inside even through a brief shower. They will steam your own catch if you bring it to... More

A great place to enjoy non-fried food, The Steamed Shrimp were Awesome and the biggest we have ever seen, and the Crab Cakes were wonderful. Clean restaurant and friendly staff. A great change to from the Fried goodness.

I recommend dining outside overlooking the marina and nearby quaint condos. Picnic style tables enhance the casual atmosphere. I had the crab stuffed shrimp combo for $19. There were six large shrimp with crab cake-like stuffing on a bed of white rice, corn on the cob, a large potato and cole slaw. The cole slaw was very good with a... More

My family and I chose The Steamer after loving The Shrimp Basket the night before and noticing they were under the same ownership. My mother chose 1 lb of steamed shrimp, my husband selected crab and shrimp, and I had stuffed shrimp. The flavor and freshness of the food was out of this world! We all shared, and everything I...

No fried food, everything was fresh and filling. Large portions and great views. You can sit inside or outside. It's in a really cute shopping plaza. I had the crab stuffed grouper and the husband had the royal reds and crab legs. Also got oysters. Everything was delicious. We will definitely be back. Only negative was the service was a... More
