Great fried shrimp, butterfly style, and a tasty unique dipping sauce. Lots of side choices (2 items come with entree) and excellent hush puppies too. There are other good choices for entrees, but really if you only have one meal to get...get the fried shrimp! 9 or 12 shrimp, I got the 12 and it was more than enough. Still... More

Bring your cash and patience the wait is worth the meal and service! I go for fresh catch broiled and the mahi was a delight! Wonderful side dishes of green beans and squash made this a healthy meal! Had to get a to go box. Highly recommend to all seafood and veggie lovers!

We visited O'Steen's in early Aug based on recommends from locals. The wait was not extremely long and believe me it was worth the wait. The waitress gave us excellent service and the shrimp was delicious, probably the best we ever had. I actually have the recipe and the recipe will be followed in future family get to gathers.

Great food, good service, fair prices! Shrimp is the best! Try the squash casserole! Unless you are a big eater get the 9 shrimp!

Although we had to wait about 20 minutes for space to open up at the counter, the food and service here made it worth the wait. I had the small shrimp plate which came with 6 tender, delicious fried butterfly shrimp, French fries, and a hush puppy. This was plenty for me. It left just enough room that the banana... More

We were told that O'Steen's had the best shrimp in all of Florida. They were plentiful and very fresh, lightly dipped, and not greasy. They are served with your choice of sides. I noticed that almost everyone had the fried shrimp in the entire restaurant. Since there was an hour wait, and mostly locals, you can't argue that it doesn't... More

Excellent food, quick service. That's the short and simple message. I had the seafood platter with shrimp, crab cakes, oysters, scollups and Mahi Mahi. Everything was great. It came with a salad and red beans and rice. For desert I had Key lime pie, my son had banana cream pie both were great. When I'm back in town I will... More
