Great meal

The food was really good and service was great. The restaurant was a bit loud because they were crowded. It's a very popular restaurant. Very little parking in the front, but there is a lot of parking in the back and they have a valet service to park your car for you that you can choose. Bathroom... read more

Not sure what was up with their shrimp but had a bad smell. The flavor was odd too. I asked the waitress to smell them and she said they were fine. I thought it may have been the blackened but the fried were the same way? I had oysters which were great but the shrimp did me in. Kind of... More

Best food on Okaloosa Island ! The restaurant has a sign as you walk in that says "Who needs a stinking view" and they are right. The decor may look a little dated but once your food starts coming to your table everything looks better. We started with the garlic butter bread loaf as our appetizer . We could have... More

We were only in town 3 nights and we ate here 2 of the 3. SO GOOD!! The scallop appetizer with pineapple salsa was delish and the steamed crabs were to die for! The wait staff was extremely nice as well. The only bad thing I have to say is avoid the crab and tuna dip appetizer...it was super salty... More

We ate here on a weekday at 5:00 and it was already crowded. We were seated promptly. The dress is casual, but the restaurant is nicely decorated, and has a good atmosphere. We had shrimp alfredo, and a steamed seafood platter which was excellent. The shrimp alfredo was good, but not as tasty as the seafood platter. The salads which... More

Place was packed, but everyone from the host to the service staff was on their game tonight. David our server was busy to say the least, but it did not show in his service quality. A lot of team work with the staff. Food came out in record time given the business level. I live in New Orleans where we... More

My family had a great dinner at old Bay Steamer. The kids menu is a little short on seafood dishes but other than that we had a great experience. Our salad was great and the entrees with both cooked very well. I had no complaints with the food and I tied their long island tea. It was pretty good but... More

Top notch service from start to finish. The food was fantastic. You will not regret it. We had the lobster steamer for two. Amazing!

We had a steamer for two, $89 it was a lot of food. Pretty good. Thought we'd be more impressed with the lobster tail but pleased. DO NOT waste your $3 on the garlic bread. It sucked. Enjoyed everything else though.

Where to begin...first the parking is not located beside the restaurant which is not appealing. Got to the restaurant around 6 and was seated immediately that was great, the waitress was very nice and helpful! The salad was amazing I could have just eaten it! We got the snow crab steamer, the triple play, and the king crab and shrimp... More
