We went about 4 pm. There was no wait and service was quick. My questions were answered. I ordered King Crab and Shrimp. (Royal Reds head on) one excellent thing they do is bring kitchen shears for cutting the crab legs. Food was good. They could season the seafood a bit heavier but thats... read more

Restaurant was recommended so we took mom there for her birthday. Best decision I could have made! Mom and sister visiting from VA and wanted her to have a birthday meal she would remember. Food was perfect and our server (David S.) was awesome! Hardest decision was what to choose from the menu. Four of us were there and everyone... More

Since I live on the island, I typically go in the winter to avoid lines. The family steam bucket will easily feed 4-6 people and is a very affordable seafood meal without breaking the bank. In the summer, I would go early or late to avoid the lines. The interior has an eclectic, artzy, New Orleans feel. Parking can be... More

Try the Triple Play and you won't be sorry. It has a taste of three different sea foods, lobster tail shrimp and scallops. The vegetable medley is awesome and the rice is good too.

Lots good to eat prices not bad. The Red royal shrimp or scallops is to die for. Good atmosphere but can get busy.

My pasta dish was loaded with good seafood. The portion was generous and I was very satisfied with it. The sauce was light and very tasty.

First, we are LOCALS and frequent the restaurant often. On this visit we were told by the waitress, Royal Reds were not available and they were serving white shrimp. We decided to go ahead and order our usual "The Gulf Steamer for two" only to notice the price increase. When the steamer bucket came out the shrimp were not cook... More

Been here multiple times and the food seems to be different every time. Love the salad dressing. My wife and I always get the no frills steamer. Just shrimp and crab. This past visit the shrimp were over cooked and difficult to peel. Our visit in November was perfect.

Wow, first time at Old Bay Steamer. My husband had crab legs and I had crab cakes. The food was perfection and our server Charley was very attentive. This is an artsy place where fun is mandatory.
