We've had dinner and lunch here, numerous times. The food has always been good, from appetizers to dessert. Full bar, too. Ask for Chris, he'll make sure you have a great meal!

We tried Shrimp Boat Grille based on reviews from Trip Advisor. The food was quality food, fair price. I wanted to give them 3 1/2 stars but you can't so I gave them 4. I would definitely go back. Our waitress was outstanding as were the other servers. Good food at a fair price, can't ask for much more than... More

Shrimp Boat has moved to Valrico, FL. The new location is very nice. The food has not changed. I had the grilled shrimp, which was great. My wife had the special-Grilled salmon over spinach topped with a lobster sauce. Delicious. The bill of about $25 was very reasonable. The beer was $2.75. Excellent bargain.

We walked in, and had a group of 6. We didn't have reservations. The hostess went and got the table ready, and then came back and never sat us down at the table. A group of 3 comes in behind us and they get seated. Well I speak up, and was told our server was late and wasn't there yet.... More
