We ordered the steamed dinner for 2 which had crabs, mussels, scallops and shrimp. It was enough for three and I even ate mussels, which I am not fond of. All the seafood was really fresh and good! The side dishes of French fries and...More

It seems that Steamers has gone down hill. And since it was not such a posh place to start, that means it should probably be avoided. They used to serve draft Yeungling in a glass. Now they bring a plastic cup and have no Yeungling,...More

Well, they have crabs and that's about it. Service was lacking, other menu items weren't very good, and basically it's way overpriced. The atmosphere is horrible - old building, reeks of stale beer, not a real roof, dirty. Did I mention they had decent crabs?...More

My wife and I had dinner there tonight, courtesy of a GROUPON which we paid $20 for $40 worth of food. After we bought it, I read the reviews of others on tripadvisor, and prayed it wouldn't be that bad. Well, I must say, I...More

We refer often to TripAdvisor for restaurants and travel, and were concerned when we read the negative reviews on Steamers. We had received a groupon gift for an all you can eat crab meal for 4. Not expecting much, we were pleasantly surprised at how...More

We had the crab feast at Steamers while the football games were on and it got loud, so if you want a quiet experience, don't go when there's a game on. It was lots of fun, as we're all fans. The food was good, ate...More
