Steamers Shellfish To Go Review

We decided to head to Corolla Beach in search of Wild Horses with our Steamers Shellfish To Go. It was a HOT, 100 degree day but we had the idealistic idea of tailgating out of the Ford Explorer, on the beach, with great food, and wild horses trotting by. We were cautioned that the beach with the sand and wind may not be the best option but we were on vacation and had to try it. :)

My kids thought it was the best to sit in the back of the car, eating a smorgasbord of seafood. I thought it was fun and exciting too!

We prepared our plates with a taste from each meal.


We had the Rib & Chicken Combo which included a 1/2 rack of ribs with 1/4 roasted chicken. Elijah, my 6 year old ate most of the juicy chicken and fries. The ribs were a bit spicy for my kids, but my husband and I enjoyed the flavor and tenderness the baby back ribs offered.

The scallops were tender and delicious, my 4 year old ate many. She just found out that she likes scallops on this trip, so she really enjoyed the scallops from Steamers.

I am a shrimp lover, so the Steamed Spiced Shrimp was my favorite, and boasts the praise of being guaranteed the best on the Outer Banks. The cocktail sauce was just perfect too. I must admit that I devoured as many of the fresh, jumbo shrimps that I could. They were absolutely delicious.

Okay, I wasn’t so sure how hot Steamers Seafood Bisque would taste on a 100 degree day. I bypassed it and planned on tasting it back at the beach house. While I was splashing in the cool water with my kids, my husband sampled it and alerted me that I HAD to try it. Boy was he right. It was the best bisque I have even tasted, the lobster stock was light but packed with fresh seafood. The photo doesn’t do it any justice. Just suffice to say, if we enjoyed eating the Steamers Seafood Bisque in 100 degree weather, it must be amazing!SteamersShellfish-to-Go
