My husband and I love the Shrimp Boat Grill and their new location is a great upgrade from where they were originally located. The staff is great and their food is very yummy. My husband loves the fried shrimp and the au gratin potatoes. I've tried several different menu items and they have all been fresh and delicious. Definitely recommend!

I was visiting for first time in 10 years. A friend recommended this place. Fiod was great, pricey for area, but what I pay at home for seafood. Staff was great. I found it charming.

The food tastes 100% better since they moved. Maybe it's the new location, but it tastes better and the atmosphere was smoother. Glad they moved and hired better staff!

Good was delicious, seemed to be a little more expensive than their previous location. More upscale. I loved the atmosphere of the old location and it's not the same but food is still good, service was good. They had nice live music playing in the background. Not too over bearing though.

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent visit. Apps and entrees were fresh and absolutely delicious. Top that off with great service and it made for a wonderful dining experience.

We ate here this past weekend (11/01/2014) on a Saturday, and this was our first time eating at this restaurant- due in part to the fact that we are not big seafood lovers. Reservations are recommended as this restaurant is VERY popular, and we had a reservation for 5:30 p.m.. The menu offers much to choose from, and includes entrees... More

The shrimp boat has top notch service. The food is very good. The grits aren't your everyday grits. Wonderful flavor. Go check them out. It is a quality place

Have you ever had a good friend who changed trying to fit in with the "cool kids," and in doing so, lost the quality that made him or her so special in the first place? This is what happened to Shrimp Boat Grill when it moved from La Viva Plaza to the current location on Bloomingdale. When you stepped into... More

Based on other reviews we were expecting the service to be lacking, but we were totally surprised by how accommodating the hostess and waiter (Joe) were! Great service! Nice atmosphere! The fried shrimp was perfectly cooked and non-greasy, the BBQ ribs were better than ones we recently had at a BBQ place! Portions were large, and every item seasoned well... More

from start to finish. Shrimp Cocktail as an app, followed up with a very tasty, succulent Grilled Shrimp platter. The au gratin potatoes are just stupidly delicious. Prices are reasonable. Service was excellent. We'll be back...
