Shipp's Harbour Grill stands alone in a class of it's own serving Fresh Local Seafood and Certified Angus Beef. Shipp's offers beautiful outside seating on our upper deck with a birds-eye view of the harbor, a tiki bar, a covered outdoor porch, and an elegant but casual shabby chic beachside decor inside in our many dining areas. Shipp's is comfortable and casual with classy food. "Once you try Shipp's you'll be hooked"

Visit here every year and two years running get wait staff that is either poorly trained or not trained at all. Food excellent, noisy when busy, cramped seating.

This place does not deserve a top spot. I understand this place serves ok food, but the staff is some of the worst around. The restaurant made no effort to honor the reservations and made those who had reservations get into an additional line for those who "claimed" reservations. This place should have prepped a little better for a holiday... More

This place was highly recommended to us and we loved the atmosphere. We were seated right on time with our reservation and that was the best part of our dining experience. Our server greatest us after 10 minutes and she took our drink order. 20 minutes later our drinks had not arrived and our server kept saying "I apologize but... More

Tucked away with little advertising on the road, Shipp's is by far the best seafood dishes I have ever had. From the Creole Oysters (Tasso, Cream Cheese, Parmesan), Crab Drip (fresh pita chips for dipping into a heavnely bowl of crab, cream cheese and jalapenos) to the blackened tuna. My mouth is watering just reliving this dining experience. Huge portions... More

This is an excellent hidden spot. I recommend eating outside no matter the weather. It was storming when we stopped but the patio is covered and we had no issues. The views are breath taking. Food was excellent. We had Coconut grouper, creole grouper, crab cakes, crab dip, and the little one got a fried PBJ. Everything was delicious. Service... More

Shipps is hidden in a marina but it's not a dive by any means. Best food in the area. Decor is fresh and beachy, not a bit fussy. If you're in the area you'll not be disappointed.

Arrived early on a Friday evening without reservations and only waited 15 minutes. We were given a table with a great view of the harbor. The drinks were very good. Appetizers delicious. The waiter was really attentive and very pleasant. He suggested the blackened tuna dinner and it was the absolute best tuna I've ever had. If you are in... More

We picked up from here this week. One individual on our party ordered the paradise salad which comes with tuna. When we got back to our rental, there was no tuna on the salad. On top of this, when the charge cleared out credit card, there was a 40% tip added to the charge that was not authorized by my... More

Family recommended it. It was fantastic. If all the other menus (days & times matter!) we look forward to checking them all out! Tuna...great. Drinks...quality! Creme brûlée!!!! I certainly recommend reservations for evenings/weekends. A Sunday bloody martini bar? Are you kidding? Even have a large single table that looked to seat 18+!

My husband and I ate at Shipps on Thursday, May 14. We had reservations for 7pm, thankfully, because when we arrived it was a 45 minute wait. The hostess greeting people out front was just this side of rude to people attempting to walk up and wait for a table. Honestly, the process itself was a bit chaotic, and I... More
