A stream pot brimming with royal red shrimp (complete with heads!), crab legs, potatoes, and corn on the cob. Served with family-style salad. A steamer for two and a single steamer STUFFED four hungry adults! One of my favorite restaurants this visit!

During our visit we pointed out to our waitress that ants were all over the booth we were sitting in. She notified the manager but the manager never came to see us despite us asking. The manager relayed through the waitress that they had just sprayed for bugs that day. On a positive note the kids plate was great for... More

I always have the snow crab and shrimp platter and their Strong Island beverage. The food is really good and so are the portions. Can be a bit pricey depending on what you get but usually worth the money. I try to get in there every few months.

We always go here when we are in the area at least once. Steamed Seafood that is Delicious! A little pricey, but well worth it. Always Great Service!

Went here for a business dinner on a Monday night. Arrived just after 6pm and was seated quickly. We sat upstairs. I ordered the crab cakes. I'm not from the east coast so I haven't developed a preference for crab cakes there. I thought that they were good and the grilled zucchini and rice was also good. Liking to eat... More

Overall, we had a really good experience here. My only complaint is that the shells stuck like glue to the Royal Reds. I think that means we were given reheated food, not sure. But others that know more about cooking seafood, tell me that shrimp that are reheated will stick. This is a pretty expensive place to be serving reheated... More

My husband and I ate at Old Bay Steamer in Ft Walton Beach last night and, unlike our experience there in 2012, the food was terrible. We ordered the expensive "Lobster Super Steamer" ($89 for two) which is the same thing we had when we visited in 2012 ($49 for two). In 2012 it was awesome, however, this time it... More
