The wife and I plan our St. Augustine visits around lunch at O'Steen's. The food is always top notch and the service is great. I do recommend patience when waiting for a table or we go there about 10:45A to walk in with the first group when they open.

I have heard how good this restaurant was for years, but never made it there until now. The shrimp are as amazing as I've heard. The sides were tasty, especially the hush puppies. We didn't mind the wait because it was well worth it.

I have been eating at Osteen's for the last 19 years my friend Mike introduced me to the restaurant back in 1998 when I worked down the road at Northrop Grumman. I use to eat lunch there every Friday when we got off of work early. I moved away to Charleston, SC in 2008 to work for Boeing and recently... More

We went there with a family of 5 and they got us in within 20 minutes. The shrimp are huge and delicious. They only take cash but they have an ATM on site. Definitely worth the visit!

This place was recommended to us, and we were not disappointed. The shrimp were the best I've ever tasted. Such a lovely light coating. The green beans were definitely over cooked, but the food came fast and hot. The wait time was 30 minutes, and this seems normal. But we didn't feel rushed once we did get a table. The... More

We have been going to O'Steen's for several years for the shrimp which was always very good. However recently we went with friends and were told there would be a 20 minute wait. We ended up waiting 50+ minutes then left annoyed because two groups of 6 who arrived long after we did were seated ahead of us. Its unfortunate... More

Growing up in Florida I've had lots of seafood, this was simply the best! I had the shrimp with squash casserole and green beans, my husband had the seafood platter with fries and Cole slaw. The hush puppies were awesome too!

From the time we walked through the door we were treated as if we had walked into a good friends house. Best seafood we had during our stay and at a reasonable price. I had shrimp and Oysters....the best I have ever had. Fresh and hot!!!

Every local knows O'Steens is the go to place for fried shrimp. Eating at O'Steens was always easy; sit down, order fried shrimp and enjoy the best. Today, I ordered the fried chicken. It was A++++. So from now on, visiting O'Steens will require making a decesion - Shrimp or Fried Chickem. What a dilemma.
