Pricey, But Delicious!

We were a little taken aback by the prices at first, but it turned out to be well worth it. Compared to similar restaurants in the nearby area, the price really isn't too bad. We had the muscles, oysters, shrimp, and crab. All was fresh, delicious, and wonderfully messy. The decor's very... read more

My wife and I shared the 'Basic Steamer for Two' which comes with Snow Crab Clusters and Royal Red Shrimp served with Corn on the Cob, and New Potatoes. It was a lot of food. Although it was a little pricey, we certainly felt like we received our money's worth. Realistically, I think 3 or 4 people could have shared... More

One of my favorite places to eat on Okaloosa Island. Every time we have been to the restaurant the food has been excellent and fresh. We have never had to wait for long to get a seat and the wait staff has been friendly and prompt. The only negative things to say about this restaurant is that the parking is... More

Absolutely love this place! Has something for all palates. My husband had a steamer pot and I had the Triple Delight (lobster, shrimp and scallops) wood seared.

Food tasted amazing. A little expensive, but don't go here every day. Wait was not too long, even though there was a line. Parking can be difficult.

We eat here every time we are in the area. The service and staff are always friendly and very accommodating!!! The food is always fresh! King snow crab legs are a favorite of mine. The seared tuna is amazing. Great atmosphere and great family dining experience. If you love their house salad, be sure to buy the dressing on your... More

We went to Old Bay Steamer based on the reviews. The upstairs bar was very cool. We loved the life size "dolls" at the bar that, appeared to us, to represent Barbara Bush, George Bush, and Whoopie Goldberg. The bartender was great and made awesome drinks. We were seated well under the stated 25 min wait. From this point forward... More

We were excited to go to Old Bay Steamer after many people telling us it was great. We got there early because we were told it gets really busy and waits can be long. We got there at 5pm and were taken to a table. Our sever seemed really busy and didn't spend much time with us at all. We... More

We went to Old Bay Steamer after asking a few locals where to get the best seafood. This place was awesome, my grandson and girlfriend ordered a basic steamer for two, it came in a huge bowl and the food was wonderful.
