We came here because it was rated 4.5 stars and close to our condo. Mike, our waiter from Auburn, AL was awesome. The food was fabulous. The two couples had raw oysters, the snow crab and shrimp steamer, the filet, and the gumbo. The food, including the salad and bread, were awesome. Locally owned and very tasty. We will be... More

Food is average but pricy. Suggest one of many places closer to the water if visiting from out of town. A dinning experience w/o the view of the water is not complete.

We went here twice in the week we were in Ft Walton. They have excellent seafood! The King Crab legs are perfect. The scallops are delicious! Its busy, but well worth the wait. We found the Bar upstairs was less crowded while waiting for your table. Try the Gumbo! If you go here you will not be disappointed!!!

Have been going on vacation to Destin for years and The Old Bay Steamer is hands down our favorite. Great atmosphere and great service every time. If you love authentic seafood, this is a must try!

Very impressed! Excellent seafood and great service. Catch of the day was red snapper and I enjoyed it. A full bar is also located inside.

We visited in August 2016 - the food was great, but expensive. My husband and I each had the steamed shrimp, which came with corn on the cob, red potatoes and a salad. We also ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer. They were the best I've ever had - expensive but worth it. This was our one big splurge... More

The best seafood in the area hands down. The bad is the price goes up often but the portion shrinks.
