if you are a shrimp-lover, this is the place for you! i ordered the 18 shrimp lunch recently and received some of the loveliest, tastiest fried shrimp i've had
service was prompt and friendly go at an off hour if you don't want to wait gave it a four only because the sides are a little skimpy, but otherwise a real treat

This restaurant reminds me of those of days past where food was fresh and homemade. Friendly and efficient service and outstanding food. Very homey atmosphere. We have eaten at many places in the area and without a doubt, O’Steen’s has the best shrimp we have had. The sides include the usual fries, slaw, etc, but they also have pickled beets, old fashioned green beans and more. The hush puppies are light, airy and delicious. Within the restaurant there is a nice hum of people talking and enjoying their food. Lots of local as well as tourists. There are parking spaces at the door of the restaurant and lots more parking immediately out back. Note: O’Steen’s does not take credit cards. I had shrimp - it was wonderful. My husband had flounder and really enjoyed it. All food is fresh and there are lots of homemade dishes. The menu has seafood, beef and chicken dishes. We will definitely go again.

I have tried fried shrimp all over this state and O'Steen's is the best. It is always fried to perfection and you can tell it is fresh local shrimp. Whenever we have company in town this is always where I take them when they ask for fried shrimp. There home cookin' sides are great too.

All ate fried shrimp and most said it was the best ever had. They just don’t serve alcohol. Be ready for 1-1 1/2 hour wait no matter when u go. It’s that good!!!!

Every time I visit St. Augustine I have to go to O'Steen's. They have the best shrimp in Florida. I never leave hungry. They are frequently busy and have a wait. You can go to the british pub 2 doors down and have a drink while you wait. They will call the bartender when your table is ready.
