Went with a party of 7 adults and 2 small children and they charged me the 18% for a party of 8 or more which I normally wouldn't mind paying but the service was not very good at all. The food was great and plenty of it just a little pricey but then again you get what you pay for.... More

A southern seafood restaurant without fried fish? Yup! And it's great! Most people seemed to opt for a bucket of steamed seafood but we went for seared skewers of jumbo sea scallops and shrimp. I chose the scallops ... 5 per skewer, seared to slightly sweet perfection, succulently rare inside and served with appropriate veggies and rice. My companion chose... More

After a week long try of different restaurants in and around Destin/Miramar area we finally came to Old Bay Steamer. It did not disappoint. There were selections for one or two steamer combos and we decided to go with one per person. I chose the shrimp and oyster steamer plate that came with the house salad and corn on cob... More

One of our party of 14 has eater at Old Bay Steamer every time his family visits the Destin area (which is about every year). He really wanted us to get to Old Bay Steamer so we did! We did not have a reservation, it was a Thursday night in September and we were able to get right in. The... More

Our daughter took us there and WOW, this place is amazing and the crowds prove it. We had the jumbo steamer for four for $98+- and it was the freshest, best stuff ever.

My husband & I enjoyed a nice meal at Old Bay during our vacation on Okaloosa. Very easy walk from our condo at Summer Place, just diagonally across the street. We visited midweek, & were seated immediately. My husband enjoyed crab legs, I had the lobster tail dinner. The seafood part of our dinner was very good. But have to... More

I'll start by saying that my husband and I got the steam pot with clams, oysters, mussels, red shrimp, and snow crab and it was very good. The shrimp and crab was our favorite. But there are 2 reasons I don't think we would go back and eat here. 1. The floors were dirty with paper scattered here and there.... More

This is a place we eat at every time we go to Fort Walton Beach. It never seems to dissappoint. It's hard to beat a very good seafood boil. This year was no different. They have a full bar and cater to children and families in general. If there is any complaint it's that it's a little expensive. However, seafood... More

We went in an intimate group of 42, and had a wonderful time. Our servers were absolutely amazing, keeping up with everyone's needs and smiling the entire time. As a guy who lives in the desert, I look forward to any good seafood opportunity, and Old Bay Steamer certainly didn't disappoint. Their menu is extensive, and everyone enjoyed their food.... More

I had the pineapple shrimp which was two skewers of grilled shrimp and pineapple salsa over rice. Delicious! The salad was good and fresh, and I really liked the house dressing. The service was good, and the waiter was friendly.
