Our History

Fresh is how we like it and how we serve it here at Steamer Seafood!  We are a scratch house for seafood; which means we do not use it if it is pre-mixed, pre-breaded, pre-made or predominately someone else’s!  All of our food is made to order!  We have at least six fresh fish a day, Here at Steamer Seafood we do everything in our power to create raving fans.  It is not only our job to provide all of our guests with the freshest seafood around but to provide you with the best service we can offer.

Come in and try our famous Shellfish Platter, king crab legs, buckets of steamed oysters, fried shrimp or our world famous Bull Bites. Thirsty? Check out our new beer menu!
