I eat fried shrimp every chance I get! I have been to O'Steen's several times, but had the best fried shrimp ever tonight!

I'm not a fan of fried food, but felt that I had to try the shrimp at O'Steen's during my visit to St. Augustine I'm so glad I did; the shrimp was excellent. I understand some people's complaint that the shrimp batter was undercooked, but I thought the shrimp were still excellent. I have never had french fries that I... More

I have been coming to O'steen's since I was 6 months old, and every year since! It would not be a St. Augustine trip without eating some of the best shrimp in the USA! The whole experience makes dinner so much fun! It is the original restaurant from when they opened, so seating is limited, and you have to wait... More

We were lucky to have this restaurant suggested to us by the motel we were staying in close by. It was a rainy evening and we wanted somewhere to eat close by. We arrived around 7.30 and the restaurant was almost full, looked like a popular local spot. We both ordered the Fried Shrimp meal, which comes with a pink... More

WE visit the St Augustine area every winter and we had never tried O'Steens before our most recent trip. Seeing it rated well on TripAdvisor and that they offered oysters was enough to get us in. The seafood we tried was all very good. Our only suggestion would be that the fried items be cooked to a more golden brown.... More

After a short wait, we got our table and ordered up some delicious shrimp! Service was cheerful and efficient. The shrimp were delicious as we're a cross section of side dishes! We'll aim for O'Steens again !

Stopped here while visiting family in the area. They insisted we not go home until we all went here to eat--they were right!! BEST SEAFOOD we've ever had. Go about 4-4:30pm to beat the evening crowd--you will not be sorry. Reasonable prices too.

Three of us came at 2:00 thinking there would be no line. We were wrong, waited 45 minutes, but worth the delay. I had chicken and dumplings which were tasty, my husband gobbled down the mani, and our friend had her usual, the delicious shrimp. The seating area was limited, but an adjoining antique store was available for browsing. A... More

We had a small, Family Reunion recently in Jacksonville, FL. One evening we went to St. Augustine to meet at O' Steen's Restaurant for an early supper. This restuarant is very popular and someone needs to go a little earlier to put in a reservation if you don't want to wait a while. They have a dining room that seats... More
