This place is one of the best "hole in the wall" places ever. Definitely would suggest getting there early because you will encounter a line otherwise. Only downfall is that they DO NOT accept credit cards SO bring some cash!

We were very lucky - we visited O'Steens Restaurant for dinner in November before Thanksgiving and didn't have to wait at all! Our dinners were delicious and the service was wonderful. If the weather had been nicer, we would have ordered our food and eaten outside, so keep that in mind when you encounter a long wait.

This is the type of place that makes every dish perfectly. Our table ordered the sea scallops, blackened mahi, and lightly breaded fried shrimp in various quantities. Very enjoyable. Reminded me of back home cooking. The green bean and broccoli sides were top notch. Our 30 minute wait was actually 15 minutes at 1:30 pm on a Thursday, which made... More

We stopped at a couple of our favorite restaurants on the way down to St. Augustine and were disappointed because they just weren't as good as we remembered. We were relieved and delighted that Osteen's was. The place is still a bit too small, a little too noisy and, at times, hard to get into without a long wait, but... More

Stopped by on Saturday afternoon and yes, there was an hour wait. Tip. Get your food to go and eat in the car or on a nice day sit on the hood of your car!!! Then you only have a five to ten minute wait. We ordered the Minorcan Clam Chowder and the Fried Shrimp platter. The Minorcan Chowder was... More

Went for lunch on a Saturday...only had to wait about 5 minutes. The shrimp and hush puppies were delicious. Service was good as well. So glad we stopped.

This place has been around for 30+ years, great shrimp and friendly 'mom and pop' service. I'm not sure I'd wait 60 mins or more for it (but I'm a local, so I can go at off peak times)--Food and service is consistently very good--and it IS ALL ABOUT the shripmp :-) Weak part of the meal is probably dessert--so...

Consistently the best fresh flounder and fresh shrimp in town. Not much atmosphere but who cares when the best food is served. Bring cash as no credit cards are accepted. Be sure to try the Minorcan chowder. Spicy and delicious. Good service although lines for dinner can be ling. try a late lunch/early dinner to avoid a lengthy wait. Highly... More

I loved their shrimp. My husband had tilapia and catfish which was good as well. Highly recommend! The service was good too. And the price is reasonable. If your visiting the area don't miss this place.
