The Shrimp Factory has moved. Not very far but they are no longer on the corner on Blvd Marina. For many years I have walked past the old location but had never eaten there. It was somehow unappealing given the many choices in Cabo. It always looked dingy and touristy, This year we were actually checking out another new restaurant... More

We had a coupon from our resort to enjoy a dinner out at The Shrimp Factory. It is a quaint little restaurant, not at all what I'd imagined from the name (guess I was imagining a Spaghetti Factory of sorts - something slightly Americanized, given the name) - and that is a GOOD thing. The tables were covered in brightly... More

Had a shrimp cocktail served to me warm. Could still see the entrails on some of the shrimp. It was also slow in there. That tells me as a red seal chef in Canada a few things. One: the shrimp was frozen and had to be heated to thaw Two: the shrimp were fresh and had been boiled and then... More

We had to ask around for them as they have moved since the last time we were in Cabo but it was well worth the search. The margaritas were as good as we remembered and the quesadillas were good as well. Both waiters (Hector1 and Hector2) were great!

New location! Food was really good / service great. Nothing fancy but terrific shrimp any way you like it! The wait staff is fun and friendly and the drinks were good.

The Shrimp Factory has moved around the corner, but is still the best place in Baja, or anywhere to enjoy shrimp! We have been dining at the Shrimp Factory for years. A trip to Cabo would not be complete without their boiled and broiled shrimp by the kilo and their "Bulldogs", a Margherita with a short bottle of Pacifico beer... More

They've moved recently, so hopefully a new location will revitalize this old favorite. There are rarely folks in there when we go, which always makes me nervous but we continue since it's a favorite of one of my traveling partners. We would NOT go back if concerned about quality of food, though. And in this area, despite appearing on the... More

4 of us went to their new location on the corner close to Panchos last night. My husband didn't order a kilo of jumbo shrimp but that's what he got because when the bill came we were shocked to see it cost 60 bucks!!! I got filet of Mahi Mahi which was plentiful and good. The other couple got shrimp... More

We've always eaten at The Shrimp Factory at least one time per visit. Have never been disappointed. Shrimp is excellent and margaritas too. Even at their new location...close to the old locale...find it....and the the next night try our other favorite on the same street....Maro's.
