Great place to dine with friends or family!!

This restaurant serves fresh seafood to suit any palate. Each dish is carefully prepared and the flavor is just great. I brought out of town guests from Bar Harbor, ME to this fine restaurant because they desired a seafood dinner. Being from Maine, they definitely know good seafood. To say they... read more

Great seafood and service. Do the stuffed flounder! Great fresh seafood and wonderful service by Alex! They make their own blue cheese dressing which was very tasty. A little tricky to find since they moved to their new location on Bloomingdale.

Party of six and we shared. All the selections were amazing. The Seafood Au Graten was as delicious as was the fried shrimp and the Lemon Parm Tilapia!

Started the day going to Clearwater Beach with my family, the day could not have been more perfect. After a couple of hours relaxing in the sun my husband and I decided to head out, so we could treat my parents to dinner. We had read about this place online and the reviews sounded amazing, and from first hand experience... More

This is the fourth time in as many years that we've been to the Shrimp Boat, our first time in the new location. Our first trip to the Shrimp Boat was fantastic, they had these lobster shrimp that were to die for, shrimp that tasted like lobster! The food is good, not great and I find the menu selection wanting,... More

Having gone to the location on Lumsden four years, we were delighted when the crew moved to its new location and larger restaurant. Not super fancy, but we have never had anything here that wasn't fresh and delicious. The coconut shrimp it's a favorite. Reservations a good idea on the weekends.

Great food and great service! We had the Coconut Shrimp, Chicken Parmesan, and Seafood Augratin. Love the coconut piña colada sauce for the shrimp! The seafood Augratin had a little spicy kick and had great flavor. The chicken parmesan was very tender. Our waiter was very attentive and provided great service. Would definitely recommend to others.

Our nephew took us here stating it was one of the best in the area. It was on a weekend night and we were told the wait was 45 minutes when we arrived. Apparently they recently started taking reservations and our nephew had not known this although he eats here often. The wait ended up being over 1.5 hours and... More

This is a great restaurant that is off the beaten path so to speak but well worth driving to and when you walk in the door you feel the welcome...The Menu is a full fare for lunch or dinner and they start you off with the warm bread which is always a good sign. The bar is well stocked and... More

Sat at bar waiting on table. Was very busy/crowded! Bartenders were amazing! Sat outside on patio was cozy with heaters blazing. Very crowded inside so happy with patio! Man playing music was great! Server great! Food was plentiful, hot and very good. Glad we went! Btw. Put salt and pepper on tables. We were all borrowing from other tables from... More
