This is by far the best place for fried shrimp. It's caught locally and very fresh with a light batter. I have the 18 shrimp plate and finish every bit of it. The staff has been there for years and don't have to write your order down, the desert is great and worth the wait. The dinner plate comes out... More

We spend the month of January in the area and we discovered O'Steens last year. We have been back twice so far this year and both times we have found the food and service to be excellent. We go early to avoid the crowds and that has proved very effective. We love everything on the menu and we have tried... More

If you are looking for atmosphere, romantic setting, fine dining then don't eat here. If you are looking for a homey, comfortable no frills dining with great food at reasonable prices than here is where you want to be. The shrimp, which they are known for, are perfectly cooked, large, and delicious. I managed to have a 1 and 1/2... More

Small restaurant, more like a diner. Stopped by for lunch around 1:30 and were lucky to be seated immediately. Small menu, mostly fried seafood. Fast, efficient service. I had the shrimp and it was fresh and cooked very well. My wife had the Caesar salad with grilled chicken and it too was fresh and prepared well. Soft drinks/coffee/tea only, no... More

We were visiting St. Augustine, Florida and looking for a good place to eat. People we met in the lobby of the resort we were staying at suggested O'Steens for seafood. Best known for the fried shrimp, this is what we tried. Simply fabulous. No reservations are taken. They do not take credit cards. Waiting area is benches outside. While... More

We heard it was great and it was! This restaurant has been around quite a while and is popular with locals. We had the seafood platter and it was delicious!! Great service and worth the 20 minute wait to get in!! Reasonable prices for such great food!

We read about the reviews and decided to try it. It's a small place so we had a 30 min wait. Friendly service and delicious seafood platter and homemade tasting coconut pie! Oh and the hush puppets were to die for!

We've been coming to O'Steens for 35 years and when in St. Augustine you need to come across the Lions Bridge and visit O'Steens for some golden fried shrimp, scallops, oysters, and crab cakes. They don't serve alcohol and the menu is simple but you will always be pleased with the quality and quantity of fresh seafood. Family owned and... More

Anytime we make it to St Augustine we eat here. The shrimp is the best as are the hush puppies. The side dishes green beans and sliced tomatoes we had were also great. The service is always friendly and as anyone will tell you worth the wait if their is a line

Another local family satisfied. Got lucky went by, we were hungry for local shrimp and damn it they were open, we went in sat right down. I new I should have bought a lottery ticket. You always wait here. No I got stuffed with the sea food platter. It wasnt my fault, honest.
