Thank you for taking the time to review The Steamer Inn. I am sorry to hear that the Beer was a bit warm. All our beers come through a cooler but sometimes, with heavy use it can come out slightly above the perfect temperature. I would hasten to add that this is rare though.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your meals and we look forward to seeing you again.

“Great location, good service, pretty good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2013

Visited on Friday lunchtime and again on Saturday evening. The Steamer enjoys a great location offering wonderful views as well as the opportunity to people-watch - that and the great weather meant that it was very busy.

Both times the service was very good. The food was fine although a little pricey - but you expect to pay a little extra for such a great location.

“Dreadful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed in Shanklin during half term and all the restaurants were understandably busy so we booked a table for four in advance.

When we arrived the place was packed, the staff were running around like headless chickens, we were pointed in the direction of a table which was dirty and sticky. After several minutes we had to ask for menus, which were thrown in our general direction, then we realised we didn't have to order food there was more than enough stuck to the menus!!!

Yuk!!! - We left this disgusting place and had a very nice meal at the Aqua next door.

I would like to speak to you further about the date and time that this situation took place so that I can personally look in to the matter. Myself and all of my staff strive to give excellent customer service which we believe is echoed in our reviews.

“Good food, long wait.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had quite a long wait for a table, a long wait for food which was not great as it was well past my daughters bedtime by the time we had finished (if they had said I would have gone elsewhere).
But that being said, the food was great, the service was excellent and the portions were HUGE!

Thank you taking the time to review us here at The Steamer Inn.

I am glad that you enjoyed your meals. However, I am sorry for the wait to get you seated and served. This isn't a regular occurrence & I hope that we will see you again in the future to prove this.

Many thanks again.

“Amazing food, good atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Have been coming to this restaurant on holiday ever single year, portions are humongous and very tasty because it was so busy during the half term felt a little rushed for the table but this was the only time this has happened will definitely be returning!
