Steamers, a beach casual dine-in & take-out restaurant in Southern Shores, North Carolina, has been dishing up the highest quality of steamed, grilled, and fresh fried seafood to locals and visitors alike for over 20 years.

In 1994, Steamers co-founder Linda Coats not only came up with the original Outer Banks New England-style clambake, but also the restaurant recipe for success: combine the high quality food of a big city restaurant with the casual atmosphere and fresh seafood of the beach, and vacation-going families and their friends will keep coming back. First located in Corolla, NC, Steamers has stood as a beacon for fresh & gourmet seafood on the Outer Banks since the beginning.

The massive menu continues with an array of soups, salads and sides. Seafood – including lobster - roasted chicken, vegetarian lasagna and baby back ribs and crabcakes make for tasty dinners. Lunch specials feature a variety of sandwiches and wraps served with skin-on fries. Feast on lobster and shrimp salad, yellow fin tuna, softshell crab and fried oyster sandwiches. Kid’s choose from chicken tenders, jumbo shrimp, clam strips and roasted chicken.

Steamers also provides upscale and delicious catering to the Outer Banks with our fresh and gourmet approach to cooking. Steamers catering is perfect for gathering parties, family reunions, birthday parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, and corporate events.

Dine in, Take Out or simply stop by for a cocktail and enjoy the ocean view from the upstairs deck.  Steamers has something for everyone in your party!
