Old Bay Steamer: "Crab and shrimp to die for....!" Fort Walton Beach Restaurant Tip by cleermont

Fort Walton Beach Restaurants: 35 reviews and 71 photos

The Old Bay Steamer is a "shouldn't miss" place to go for fabulous crab and shrimp. There's no fried food on the menu, but you can hardly eat all you do get with your order. The standard accompaniment is their house salad, corn on the cob, and steamed potatoes. The food is steamed. The flavoring is fabulous. You'll have trouble cleaning your plate.

And, you can't beat the ambiance either.

Favorite Dish: King Crab

There's so much, and it takes the place of lobster which is never enough for me.

And I almost forgot...You get scissors instead of crackers to get to the meat, and boy do they work about 100 times better!

Address: right behind the Tom Thumb on Santa Rosa Blvd.
Price Comparison: about average
Directions: Be in the right hand lane when you go over the bridge from town to the beach. Turn right. There's the Tom Thumb, then the Old Bay Steamer, and then the fire station.
