Very Pricey, but very good. However, serving size was a little small for some of the seafood entrees. The Filet Mignon's were a solid 10 on a scale of 10. Service was excellent, and the ocean is viewable through the large glass windows from most of the tables in the restaurant. A very nice place to eat dinner.

We arrived about 5 p.m., without reservations, and were seated at a beach-front window booth. Our waiter was prompt, cordial, helpful with our menu selections and attentive. I started off with their (to die for) clam chowder, followed by Seafood Pasta. Both were very delicious....served hot and fresh. My husband started off with a 1/2 lb steamers. over linguini (special,... More

The location and the view of the ocean are spectacular. The food is good, not excellent and not bad either, just good. The prices were for Micheline Star prices, which the food was not. The ambiance is more from the '90s without the smoke.

We have been coming to Steamer's for special occasions since it opened. Our last experience was awful. The restaurant was not busy (only the window tables were occupied). After a very long wait, a waiter finally appeared at our table. We ordered a bottle of McLintock’s Chardonnay. After another long wait, the waiter finally returned only to inform us that... More

We have been eating fish and chips at Steamers for years. The food is still great but the portions are getting smaller and they aren't including some elements they used to. I would understand if prices rise but skimping on portions doesn't sit well with me. We ordered what we usually get from the menu in our adjacent hotel room.... More

The wait was too long at Ventana for our baby grandson's feeding schedule, so we opted for Steamer's since they had immediate seating. The views are pretty here and the ambiance is nice but the food had gone downhill since our last visit a few years ago. Our service was slow as molasses and everyone found the food quality to...

Had a wonderful lunch at Steamers! Full-on fantastic ocean view! Great server and interesting menu. We had one order of grilled salmon tacos and one order of grilled cod tacos, and split them. Both were really delicious! At $12 per order, a bit pricey for fish tacos, but absolutely delicious. I also highly recommend the wine flights; wonderful!
