Perfect! Complimentary valet parking by 30A. We tried several dishes and they were all fabulous Stuffed mushroom, mussels, scallops, New York strip, red shrimp, and gulf shrimp. Portions are large. Also had a child's meal- BBQ ribs, fruit, cheese stick, apple sauce and drink. Ribs fell off the bone, strip was cooked perfect- no sauce needed! All seafood was great.... More

We enjoyed our crab cakes and steamer baskets, but felt that the food here was definitely over priced. We probably would not return at those prices since there are other less expensive choices where the food is better. Meal for 4 ran $190 with tip.

This restaurant does not fry its fish. You can get crab, scallops, shrimp, fresh fish and lobster steamed or grilled. The lobster is excellent in flavor. The fish is great. The salad is so good with the house vinagrette. Service is quick, and the ambiance is casual. They have things other than fish on the menu, but you'd probably want... More

We travel to Fort Walton every July for several years and Old Bay Steamer is a staple for us to eat at once or twice minimum! I love this place and I always look forward to eating here. Eclectic atmosphere, wonderful food, and great service. Never a long wait either.

I always enjoy this place. The Steamers are out of this world. The price goes up a little every year, but I think it is worth it. They have Valet parking now, which is a definite plus. My wife had the pineapple shrimp and my Boy and I had the super steamer. Royal red shrimp, clams, oysters, king and snow... More

I've eat at this establishment a couple of times but not lately. We stopped to eat the night before Mother's Day and ordered a dozen raw oysters for an appetizer and steamed shrimp and oysters for the main course. The oysters were so small that you had to put 3-4 on a cracker. The steamed shrimp was cooked too long... More

Fantastic meal! We always visit on our trips to Ft. Walton. While the prices aren't cheap, the atmosphere is family friendly. Our girls love seeing the crab legs and watching us crack them. Crab stuffed mushrooms are our fav! The steamer for one plates are more than enough to share.
