We just visited Cabo and stopped by the Shrimp Factory. It wasn't there and we thought they were out of business. Gladly, they had just relocated. Visited the new place and had a great meal. Happy they are still around. Not far from the former location.

We happened to drop by this restaurant as someone from our resort had spoken highly of. We were greeted at the open air restaurant by Ismail who I think is one of the owners. He sat us immediately and within seconds had our drink order. After he recommended a few dinner selections we settled on a Seafood variety platter. It... More

We were disapointed to find the restaurant closed on our trip this past May. After reading the more recent reviews, I can see why. We were first there in 1994 and it was always consistant with good food, great atmosphere, friendly staff and fair prices. Sorry to see it's demise...

The Shrimp Factory is now closed. One day walking by early February 2014...the employees broke the sign over the door...pushed the tables/chairs to block the entrance...and left. So many years...but no more. Sorry...in order to post this, one has to answer all the pre-printed questions.

We stayed there a week and saw only one table eating there - It was right next to our hotel & we thought we would have a drink, they had no good tequila there - I do not think they can even afford to light the place (if they did they would see a lot of dirt & neglect) -... More

I have to start this review saying I have been going to Cabo for over 10 years and we always visit The Shrimp Factory. On this last visit something had changed. First off the restaurant looked closed. Very few lights on. The front sign on lit. But when we showed up the restaurant was open so we went in. After... More

After living in Cabo for the past several months, and dining at many many restaurants, a guest staying with us suggested "The Shrimp Factory". Big mistake, to start things off, the waiter was quite rude, seems he would rather have stood around than serve us!! The table cloths were stained, the menus were greasy and filthy. We did order Imperial... More

Just came back from a cruise, and did our standard stop at the Shrimp Factory, not very good, in fact a major disappointment, we have been coming and eating there for years, am not going again. It is tacky, lousy drinks, (only 2 kind of beer to choose from) Margaritias awful. Shrimp over cooked, flys everywhere . Yuck

One of the two restaurants we go to multiple times when we are in Cabo! I dream of their shrimp dishes, my husband loves the coconut shrimp!
