Great food, love fried shrimp and pink sauce is Bomb for dipping your shrimp into. Hands down Sweet potatoe Souffle is best side to have with your meal. Friendly staff, great service.

The restaurant decor is plain, but the shrimp are outstanding and worth the wait. The batter is a tempura style. Simply delicious. Deviled crab, why bother. Shrimp is their specialty and unlike many of the overpriced downtown restaurants, the food is great.

Always have to stop by if we're in town. Minorcan chowder is the best. Fried shrimp was great. Pickled cucumbers are addictive. Tried the fried oysters this time. They are battered and I preferred breaded but they still had great flavor.

Growing up in St Augustine - Osteen’s fried shrimp was always a delight to enjoy. And years later - if we are within 100 miles - we’ll stop in to reminisce and enjoy the shrimp. We just finished a trip through FL and Osteen’s was...More
