Great little restaurant

We recently visited Shrimp Tails on Hwy 2 in Oshawa for a very special occasion. A party of 6 – Service was excellent and meals very good. Nice quiet music, with good seating arrangements – would have been better in the corner but the existing people were very slow to leave. The waiter was very... read more

My daughter and I impromptu decided that we would go out for dinner, and my other daughter had just begun to work at this restaurant, so we looked it up and decided to go and surprise her (it was her first day). We got the surprise! Who would think this little gem was in Whitby / Oshawa? The ambiance was... More

Every visit is enjoyable! Very good food, mostly seafood, as the name suggests. We usually visit it for birthdays and anniversaries.

We love sitting at the bar! Appetizers are great but what is outstanding are the various bowls of pasta with chicken, shrimp, and or scallops made to order and made in front of you with whatever sauce you prefer and various veggies such as red peppers, leeks, onions, etc. ( might be weekends only ) The staff is always friendly...

I was a guest at this resturant for a wedding and had never heard of it before. The food was alright. People around me didn't have the steaks cooked how they wanted. My steak was medium well arrived well. My friends was medium rare it arrived well. The deserts offered were all chocolate. We were a wedding party so we... More

A regular haunt of ours we were there again on Saturday afternoon enjoying the patio with no one else around. Great oysters and appetizers paired with a nice beer. They are always ready to make changes to the meal to suit your preference or need.

My wife and I have been here twice. The first time we ordered seafood and we had a bad experience- did not enjoy the food. The second time we stuck to the steak and pasta and had a great service and great food. It is very expensive for what you get and for that reason we can't afford to eat... More

I have been to Shrimp Coctail for many, many years and have always had a great meal. Their atmosphere is great and their service is even better. I would recommend the escargot since its simply amazing! Looking forward to my next visit.
