We waited for an hour and a half, expecting the most delicious meal ever. I was terribly disappointed. I am from the coast of S.C. and you just can't beat our shrimp. Definitely, not worth the wait.

Had the shrimp again. Hard to beat. Nice family place and since it was not tourist time yet, didn't have a long wait.

OK so I went here. The building is not inviting. Patrons request a table from a window outside. When you get inside, the look reminds you of an old diner.... but when you taste the food.... as my daughter would say, OMG!! Absolutely some of the best seafood I have ever tasted. I arrived early so there were tables available.... More

Read the reviews, saw the lines, but the meal was over hyped in my opinion. True the shrimp were fresh, but the breading must be an acquired taste. Hush puppies were soggy with grease.

Great little place that has wonderful fried shrimp and great homemade side dishes. There may be a wait but it I well worth it as the food is excellent and well priced.

There is always a line but it moves fast! The fried shrimp is the way to go. They are meaty and sweet. Each plate comes with two sides and hush puppies. Chowder is fair--too many potatoes. Service is good and so is price. Will return.

Osteen's Restaurant just celebrated their 50th Anniversary since going into business. Their success over the years has been their delicious fried shrimp. They serve over 1,000 lbs of shrimp each week. The shrimp is butterflied and lightly coated with a secret recipe meal that makes it the best tasting flavor you have ever tasted. They serve a dipping sauce to... More

We ordered fried shrimp, oysters, scallops, local fish, hush puppies. The seafood was excellent and great sweet tea! All homeade and fresh. To top it off we had a cup of coffee and a slice of homeade coconut cream pie and banana cream pie for dessert! It was the best banana cream pie I've ever had!
