Great seafood? The best is the stuff you catch yourself and prepare right away. When paying, great seafood has always cost me a pretty penny. Had the fried shrimp with hush puppies and a squash casserole. The shrimp was not conventional high quality jumbo shrimp. I am familiar with butterfly shrimp, and this version was closer to that. You can... More

After hearing high accolades from Jacksonville friends who have been patronizing O'Steen's for over 40 years and reading the consistently positive reviews, I was so looking forward to finally having the opportunity to eat at this restaurant. I arrived with a party of eight, seven of who grew up in the Jacksonville area and the ones who have been the... More

Don't expect anything fancy here. They were very busy when we went on a Friday night and we waited about 20 minutes for a counter seat for two people. Cod was one of the special market fish (at $8.95 for the small appetite) they had for the night, so that was what I tried. I ordered the smaller appetite selection,... More

We always have to eat at O'Steen's. In fact we go to St. Augustine just to eat there. Shrimp is huge and all of the fixings are good country cooking.

I wouldn't wait an hour for it... thankfully we slipped in after 15 minutes with a party of 2 around 2:00. Everything is simple, but done very well. The staff is extremely courteous and helpful. Don't wait until you're starving to go!

Great food, quick service and friendly staff are all that make this a Locals kind of place. The wait wasn't long and we were seated in the main room. They also have a eat at bar which would have been an option if a table did not open up. The coconut cream pie was to die for.

I had heard a lot of great things about Osteen’s and it lived up to its expectations. We went with a big group of our family while on vacation. It’s a smaller restaurant, so it’s not great for large parties, but we split up and everyone enjoyed their food. The fried shrimp was everyone’s favorite, of course. We ended up... More

On a recent visit to St Augustine, decided to return to a place I'd gone to when I was a kid. It did not disappoint. We arrived 30 min before opening and lines were already snaking around the building for lunch. Once open we were quickly seated and approached by the waitress. They are know for their fried shrimp and... More
