Family friendly. They do NOT accept credit cards, only cash. Food is excellent; this is my favorite place of anywhere I've ever been for fresh seafood. Love their chowder; excellent fried oysters; good veggies (sweet potato is favorite of my husband's); fresh homemade desserts --...More

Love this place...homey and friendly with the best fried shrimp and sides. Hush puppies are delicious as is the squash casserole. Always a wait but they give you a good estimate of when they can take you so you can unload at your condo and...More

Been coming here for 25+ years to visit St.Augustine from Auburn, Ga. And O'steens is still the best food and best prices you can find.

It had been over 30 years since we visited this St. Augustine fixture. But it won't be that long before we return. The fried shrimp were super as our friends had indicated. The catfish was also tasty as were their hushpuppies.

This place has really good seafood but is so small there is usually a twenty to thirty minute wait.. When it’s hot out the wait is not very fun at all..

Plan ahead and bring cash, they don't take reservations or credit cards. But, while you wait, you can wonder around the area and they will call you when it's your turn. BEST fried shrimp dinner by far!

We were lucky enough to get there about 1030am and got in line before they opened. It was definitely worth the 30 min. Everything was great and we were happy we had finally been able to get in before we headed back home to Alabama.
