Everytime we go to Cabo San Lucas we make a point to eat at the Shrimp Factory. I get the Shrimp Nachos(Plenty of Shrimp) and My guy gets the shrimp salad. We, also, get the guacamole which is wonderful. Always TOO much! We take the guacamole back to the room. Last May 25-June 2 they had relocated... read more

The service was the best. We had to come here a couple more times before we left.. we ended up coming here 3 times.... More

Fantastic food! Great service! Awesome Pina coladas. The combo plates are a great deal and shareable. Plenty of food. Coupon in the tourist books at the hotel gave us all a free drink!

When in Cabo, a meal at The Shrimp Factory is a MUST! Norman, the host, offered meal suggestions in such detail your mouth watered and stomach rumbled. The Imperial Shrimp was fantastic, and Shrimp Fettuccine was bursting with fresh flavor. The portion size was perfect, and dinner conversation with the staff was very pleasant. Even after 2 days, while shopping... More

This long-standing Cabo San Lucas eatery has been consistent over the years on being all about shrimp. You can have it prepared numerous ways as part of an entrée or you can order it by the kilo or portion thereof and have it prepared in different ways with a side of vegetables and rice, etc. I ordered the 1/4 kilo...

The best shrimp in Cabo by far and very reasonable price. The staff was very friendly, fast, excellent service, and their new location is very clean. We have been to the shrimp factory when it was at the old location as well and this location is nice too. Norman has done a great job as manager! :)

We enjoyed the casual atmosphere of the shrimp Factory. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The lobster and shrimp were very very good and so reasonable. They only advice is to stay away from the steak. As we have found many places in Mexico, the beef is not what we are used to here in the States. It is often... More

Just a block off of the marina, the Shrimp Factory was a great find. The shrimp and lobster tacos were incredibly delicious and very reasonably priced. Norman's Rosemary Rice Pilaf was an awesome side to compliment the tacos. Our kids want to return to Cabo just to eat here again.

Ate dinner at the shrimp factory as we were trying different restaurants in Cabo. Should have known it wouldn't be that great as we were the only ones there. Would not recommend this for a dinner. Food was not that great and price was hihh.
