“lunch at Steamer's with surprise charges.”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The steamed Royal Red Shrimp and Alaskan Snow Crab is delicious! We also had the Grilled White Fish Fillet Po'Boy blackened. This was another excellent choice. The disappointment we had with this restaurant is you are given the choice to have the filet blackened, which we did. What they don't tell you is you will be charged additionally.
I do not have a problem paying extra for what I order but do not like to be surprised when the bill comes.

“Best Royal Red Shrimp”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

This place is the best, so good we ate there twice on a 3 day trip. The Royal Red Shrimp are the best, my wife and daughter had the crab cakes and loved them. Gulf Shore Steamer is a must for all seafood lovers.

“Royal Reds!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Went here to get some fresh seafood that wasn't fried. Ended up getting some Blue crab claws and shrimp. The blue crab claws were very disappointing. I didn't find them very tasty and over priced for what you get. The Royal Reds on the other hand were amazing! Huge shrimp with great flavor. I would go back, but this time for a bucket of Reds!

“Good food and excellent service.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was an awesome eating experience for me and my sister. There were nice huge portions. We ordered the shrimp and crab legs and received superb service. I did not like that the heads were still on the shrimp but I got over it once I tasted the freshness. The atmosphere was great. It was a mice day of sprinkles outside on the marina.
