Steamer's Grillhouse Restaurant Review

: Love seafood and libations? Steamer’s fits the bill, with its wide selection of the ocean’s bounty, from fresh-shucked oysters, steamed clams and roasted mussels to blackened snapper and pan-seared salmon. Crispy fish tacos, a roasted prawn BLT and peppered ahi salad are good lunch choices. An extensive list of well-prepared fresh fish specials is available nightly. Happy hour is the best deal here, with the famous martinis reduced from $13 to $8.50 each (well drinks are $5) and light bites at reasonable prices. With its pricey entrées and appetizers for lunch and dinner, the bill adds up fast, making this a business destination or one for special occasions. But don’t skip the rich brioche bread pudding, chocolate truffle cake with crème anglaise and vanilla bean gelato or the caramelized apple tart with homemade maple pecan ice cream, topped with candied walnuts.
