We went with 8 people everyone was pleased with there food. I would highly recommend the fried green tomatoes appetizer. I had the crab cakes which were also delicious. The piocolada dipping sauce for the coconut shrimp was also very good. They also have a few decent beers to choose from. The staff was spot on and very attentive. My... More

We tried this place due to the reviews on tripadvisor and really enjoyed ourselves. We showed up on a Saturday night and wish we had reservations, but were lucky enough to grab some dinner at the bar. They include a unique menu on Saturday's for a pretty good price that we heard rave reviews on, but we weren't able to... More

We recently had dinner at the new location. The atmosphere was pleasant but the quality of the food has gone down hill since the restaurant moved to their new location. The outdoor dining area seemed nice but weather that night was threatening so we opted for indoors. We had a fifteen minute wait so we opted to go to the... More

So, we have never been to shrimp boat - even in it's prior location. However, since they relocated closer to where we reside - we opted to give it a try. Honestly, most of our neighbors have been - none of which had anything good to say about this spot.... but we deiced to try it out for ourselves. Sadly,... More

I was presently surprised by the quality of this restaurant located on Bloomingdale Avenue. The waiter was top notch at his job and all the workers in the dining area were helping each other deliver superb service. The specials all sounded wonderful, but I ordered a shrimp pasta dish because we were at a shrimp restaurant. The dish was filled... More

Having been a big fan of the Shrimp Boat at the old Lumsden Rd location I became even more impressed with the interior look and same quality of great dinner selections. However to make up for the increased overhead the bar mixed drinks and wine glasses have shrunk. The wine glasses hold only one half the amount from previous glasses... More

Let me first say that we visited the old location and thought it was good and the ambiance was okay. We've been to the new location twice and it has been absolutely wonderful both times. We love the updated decor, the food was awesome and the music was perfect. Very impressed with the total transformation and the menu was delightful.... More
