Shrimp was falling apart as I tried to peel them. Not fresh. Crab legs were good. I would not go back.

We were looking for a place for non-fried fish and this place proudly advertises nothing is fried on their menu. My wife and I split the Alaskan King Crab legs and they were the best we have had anywhere across the country (minus Alaska). This restaurant is perfect for those looking for a true seafood dining experience and I will... More

We hit this spot every year at least once. The steamed royal reds are the absolute best. Fun outdoor atmosphere and nice cold beer.

You get big heapings of food. I had the grilled shrimp and loved it. Had that meal on my mind for a long time

Great steamed seafood. Nothing fried. Expensive but worth the splurge. Really enjoyed it. Quiet atmosphere and nice staff. Took a while for the food to arrive but wasn't too bad. Big portions. They need a better kids' menu, but the kids didn't really mind since they ended up getting crab legs. Nice place.

Wonderful dinner - we always plan time to have their crab legs every time we are here. Service was good, lots of food. Our teenage children love it as well.

We were vacationing in the area and noticed a sign for steamed royal red shrimp. My wife ordered them and they were like eating lobster. I had a grilled tuna steak and it was excellent as well.

Down here we call it a low country boil. A mixture of shrimp , potatoes , corn and sausage. Spiced up anyway you would like it. I prefer spicy. Great variety of adult beverages also.

Gulf Shores Steamer was, by far, the best restaurant we visited during our four days at Orange Beach. The raw oysters were fabulous -- large, juicy, tasty. Our other appetizer, the steamed mussels, also was very good. For dinner, the grouper special was also fabulous, but the 1.5-pound royal reds shrimp were only average; the biggest problem was that they... More
