We added an extra night to our Florida visit so that we could visit St. Augustine to enjoy a meal at O'Steen's and we were not disappointed. Best fried shrimp anywhere and the hushpuppies are excellent. This is a family restaurant and the local patrons eat early - they begin lining up around 4.30 pm so do get there early.... More

After many disappointments this weekend, O'Steen's finally hit the spot. I'm by no means picky, but it seems like many of the local reviews are skewed. The shrimp here are fluffy and flavorful! Friendly staff and great price. I hear there's usually a line, but we went on a Thursday night and sat right down. Unfortunately, they only take cash.... More

TIP: GET THERE EARLY - Heard about this place many years ago from annual visitor who raved about it. Our first time to St Augustine, O'Steens was the only place on our visit menu. Not disappointed. After telling our waitress Sue that it was our first time, she laid out all the best options for us. Never had fried seafood... More

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 !
