We loved this place so much we ate here twice while on vacation. Everything we had was amazing. All four of us left both times with left-overs. We are staying in Destin this year but will definitely be coming back.

My Best Friend and I come to Fort Walton only once a year and this time we decided to give this place a try. We were not disappointed! We ordered a bottle of Mark West Pinot Noir (Very Nice) and the Lobster Super Steamer, We must have spent an hour just eating in there, the bowl of food seemed endless... More

What a great meal! If you like fresh steamed shrimp and crab you need to pay this place a visit. With a steamer order for two you get a delicious salad, dinner style, as much as you want and a HUGE platter of the tastiest steamed shrimp and crab that you can eat. This restaurant is always consistently good. The... More

Had a wonderful meal and experience at Old Bay Steamer. Our waitress, Courtney, was very helpful and we received excellent service. The Royal Red Shrimp Steamer was delicious. We were so full we did not have room for desert, but we were convinced that the Key Lime Pie was not to be missed so took it "to go", and are... More

I go here every year for my birthday, and I always bring friends from out of town to Old Bay for the Florida seafood experience. The food is fantastic and the environment has a lovely ambiance. I also work at the Best Western just down the road and constantly refer guests to this restaurant. They always come back to the... More

Never go to Okaloosa Island without visiting Old Bay! Be prepared to wait in the summertime and on the weekends! It is worth the wait!

The portions were really small for the price.. I guess with the name old bay I was expecting more. More atmosphere, more value so just average. Tasty tho!

We went here for Valentine's because we wanted something a little different. We got the steamer for 2 with king crab, snow crab, shrimp, oysters, muscles, and clams. It also came with corn, new potatoes, and a delicious salad for $62. Plenty to eat and a good atmosphere.
