Yesterday, Becky and I walked down to Steamers for her birthday dinner. The restaurant looks like a Joe's Crab Shack, only not quite so tacky (although it's not from a lack of trying). They have a main dining area that is a big open patio that overlooks the Black Warrior River. The dining area is decent, but the restaurant is in a bad location along the river. The bridge over the river for the highway is a stone's throw away. It's a good effort to have river-front dining though.

The food at this place was not that impressive. I had blackened Mahi with rice, a baked potato, and cole slaw. The Mahi and the potato were pretty good. The rice wasn't cooked enough so it was still crunchy and the cole slaw was bland.

Overall, I'd say save your money. It's pretty pricey for what you get, a so-so meal with an ok view.
