My wife and I joined another family to try out the Old Bay Steamer. After reading the reviews I must say I wasn't sure what to expect. I ended up not being too impressed. The food was decent to good. IMO the price was too high for what was delivered. I have to say I'm on the fence here. I... More

Steamed seafood baskets with many choices. Royal red shrimp, lobster, any seafood you desire. Long time local place that does it right. Not an intimate place...or a dress up place. But the food is amazing.

The Old Bay Steamer is on Santa Rosa Blvd which is the north-south road that crosses Highway 98 just east of the Fort Walton bridge. Old Bay will be on the right (west) side within a couple of blocks after you turn off 98. As the name implies, they offer steamed seafood. There are alternatives, but not many as its... More

This place is our favorite place on Okaloosa Island. We eat there at least once a month, and the food and service is always excellent.

How is this place so highly rated? I can only conclude that most of these people have only eaten at Red Lobster before. The Food: The catch of the day was over cooked, too small for the price, and most likely frozen fish. I can get a whole fresh fish in Washington DC no less for the price of what... More

We've been to this restaurant several times so this review doesn't reflect our previous excellent experiences. We arrived early (only the 3rd family on the 2nd floor),and did not have to wait. The salad came out shortly after we placed our orders. But while other servers seemed to be omnipresent, attentive, busy, interactive, we had difficulty finding ours (we couldn't... More

Our family loves Old Bay Steamer. It is always our must stop restaurant on the island. We always get the family steamer. It's big enough for everyone to share. You've also got to try their salad, seriously it's the best!

We ordered the King Crab, Snow Crab & Red Shrimp Super Steamer for two. It was very good and the service was excellent. I would definitely recommend.

We picked Old Bay Steamer because of the reviews we read on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed! We were seated immediately and our waitress was very attentive and cheerful. The food was fantastic! We all got different entrees and everyone raved - steamed shrimp, mussels, ribs! We loved it!
