We went with family. He shrimp was awesome but ... One of our members needed gluten free. The waitress recommended the grilled flounder. We all had a taste since it was a large portion. It was soooooo good we all wished we had ordered the flounder. Sweet potato casserole was delicious along with picked cucumbers. Great food. We had to... More

Worth the effort to get there, and worth the wait ! There are times when even the locals have a 2 HOUR wait but they keep coming back (and with good reason !) . The shrimp are excellent ! There are other items on the menu which I am promising myself I will try in the future, and the sides... More

We had a wait to be seated at this restaurant, even though it was in between lunch and dinner, but it was well worth the wait, and it's no wonder that it's a favorite of the locals here. If you love fried shrimp, you will just love O'Steen's, because it is just out of this world delicious. I'm not really... More

We went for lunch and had a great meal. I had the fried shrimp and it was excellent, Mom had the Chicken and Dumplings special and really enjoyed it. 2 tips go early and bring cash they don't take any cards for payment.

We have eaten here numerous times over 20 years of visiting and for a time living in St. Augustine. We have never been disappointed. It has no ambience. No reservations. Usually a good-sized wait. It's old-fashioned. But the fried shrimp are to die for. The hushpuppies also. It's a St. Augustine culinary landmark, at least in our book!

I had the seafood platter. It was the best. I got there at 11:30 on a Tuesday and people were already sitting outside in line.

Small restaurant with a limited menu but the food and service is great! The shrimp was some of the best I've had and pickled beets were a nice surprise as a side. They do not take credit cards so have cash when you go.

This place has been a staple for good homemade food especially seafood in St Augustine for some time. So on a recommendation we tried it we both had the shrimp dish the shrimp comes nicely butterflied and lightly breaded with a side of downhome goodness very tasty and full of flavor I am sure all the seafood dishes are equally...

I drive a 50 mile round trip for the meals at O'steen's in Saint Augustine, Fl. Great food, service and some of the best scenery in Fl. I have eaten here about 40 times and never had a bad meal. It is not just the shrimp, but other items are great, such as the country steak, ham, hamburger steak, vegetables,... More
