TEAM

Dale Augenstein

Owner/Founder
In his words “I’m from God’s country” which translates to small town USA, Owensboro, Kentucky. After graduating from Owensboro High school he decided to spread his wings and attend college at Western Kentucky University. There he found a home in Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and graduated with a degree in Business. In 1991 he started his dream of creating a restaurant that has a center focus around its customers; and Steamer Seafood was born. He is still a resident of his homeland Kentucky but spends majority of his summers on Hilton Head Island creating raving fans.
