We may have visited on an off nite, but I ordered their classic fried shrimp and my wife had their scallops. Despite the raves this restaurant gets, neither of us thought the food was anything special and none of it was served particularly hot. What struck us most about it is what they don't do: They don't take credit cards.... More

I lived in and traveled around Florida most of my life and had the opportunity to sample some of the most outstanding seafood platters local fryeries have to offer. Regrettably, O'steens is not among them. The batter for the shrimp and oysters was insipid with about as much flavor as a handful of raw cornmeal. The shrimp themselves were in... More

We were here in Feb. And were glad we brought our coats. There will be a line and you go up to a window from the outside and give your name and wait to be called. It's a little place but they pack them in and then serve mouth watering seafood. Especially the shrimp. There's a good feeling here like... More

O'Steen's is absolutely the best place I have been to for seafood. Especially the fried shrimp are incredible. The restaurant staff are awesome people. Prices are not bad at all. If you come to St. Augustine and not go to O'Steens your missing out big time.

We were in Augustine on a family vacation and wanted some good food. Looked up seafood and went to Osteens. Waited forever on a table it seemed but it was worth the wait. Man!! The food was good and the service was too. I'm not a big fried shrimp man but that's what I ordered and it was some kind... More

I generally don't like deep fried foods. People we met in St Augustine raved about the shrimp at O'Steens so we went not realizing that most of the menu is deepfried. I saw on the menu that the only way the serve shrimp is deep fried so I ordered the fresh catch of the day which was Maki Maki .... More

This isn't our first time to eat at or review O'Steen's; it is as good as it ever was with yummy fried "butterfly style" shrimp and hushpuppies. Not a fancy place to go eat, just a simple and small concrete block building with usually at least an hour or more wait ..... please don't leave because of appearance or crowds.... More

Just had a 6 shrimp dinner with 2 sides and a hush puppy for $8.50. What a deal!! The shrimp were butterflied so they looked like a frog leg rather than a shrimp. Fresh from the sea and fresh from the fryer onto my plate. Try the fish chowder if you want too -also delicious. Simple,clean,good service and great food... More
