This was one of our favorite places to eat. The food was outstanding and was the service. The atmosphere was laid back and casual.

A friend had recommended going to this restaurant. We found the Royal Reds and the shrimp overcooked. The coleslaw was good but the corn was not good. The red skin potatoes were not bad. Overall we were not impressed with this restaurant. We shared a meal because you got 1/2 pound of Royal Reds and 1/2 pound of shrimp and... More

Normally, I do a big long review and tell you everything from tips on what to order, yada yada. Not this time. I've tried them all, and you need look no further. This is going to be the best seafood on your whole trip. If it isn't, then you don't know what's good or bad and you need to just... More

Good food, nothing fried!!! Service was exceptional. We enjoyed our out door dinning. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed our meal. I had the scallops wrapped in bacon and they met my satisfaction.

We ate lunch here. We had oysters and split 2 steamed trays. The oysters were ok. The shrimp and crablegs were amazing! Not too expensive for what you receive. We would go back.

The food was great and service was phenomenal. I particularly enjoyed the coleslaw and potato salad because what is a good restaurant without equally good side dishes? The bathrooms were super nice as well.

The food continues to be good, especially the grilled shrimp. However, there is a need to pay attention to cleaning. The outside table covers are literally black with grime, it does nothing to help a person's dining experience. If they don't keep the tables used to serve guests clean, how is the kitchen?

I meet my family here every year for a week in the summer. The Steamer has become my go to place for baked oysters. The Parmesan Baked Oysters are my favorite! I make sure I eat at least one meal there every year. When I manage to eat there more than once, I've tried some of the other menu items...excellent.... More
