This is probably the best shrimp that I've ever had, hands down. Tasty and beautifully fried, served with a delicious sauce. The sides are nothing fancy (beets, peaches, green beans, salad, etc), but let's be honest, the seafood is the main attraction anyway. The prices are in the 18-over range, unless you get the small portions of food. The menu... More

Probably the best fried shrimp I have ever had! This will always be a main stop for me and my family when we are in San Augustine.

We went for an early lunch at 11:30 and were promptly seated at the second to last table available. It's a VERY popular place and with good reason! Though known for their shrimp, my husband and I had the fried oysters and fried catfish and they were outstanding! Our waitress was a cheerful doll! Don't miss this place if you... More

This restaurant appears to cater to the locals. It is a very small restaurant but the line moved quickly for us. The help is friendly, and the food was tasty. Good ole food....not heavy sauces and fancy la-de-da....just good, hot, food. I had Tilapia which was fried.....(which I don't normally do...and you could get it grilled)...but was not greasy and...

very basic place to eat, nothing fancy just great food. Know for their fried shrimp there is a reason for that, THE BEST SHRIMP AROUND no reason to ever try to find better, we went for a late lunch so just walked in but if you go at normal dinner time prepare to wait, but its worth it.

I have visited O"Steen's several times each time has been fabulous. The double order of shrimp along with the squash casserole side dish is my favorite. I is enough for two. Between myself and other guest we have ordered most things on the menu. Each has been lightly breaded and fried to perfection. There is usually a wait but you... More

It has been years since we've been to St Augustine but we remembered going to O'steen's and wanted to be sure to go again. So glad we did. We got there at 4:00 and only had a short wait but by the time we left, the line was long. The fried shrimp is so good especially with the homemade sauce... More

We waited about 45 minutes because this restaurant was recommended by personal friends. Great food! They only serve fried or broiled seafood with diner-type sides. We would recommend it!
