This restaurant has grown into a true dining spot. Since its move to the present location, the food is center stage, a true star. The waiter: Lamarl Collins was so attentive and professional we asked for his business card. Ask for him. He understands the concept of good service. We stopped in for drinks and appetizers. We ordered dishes that... More

We dined there tonite @ 6:30 pm; restaurant was busy but not overwhelmed. Our server Lamaro was very pleasant and personable but had no memory skills or follow-up routine. We ordered a bottle of Sangiovese while we perused the menu but he forgot we had ordered it. We decided to skip the apps so we would have room for dessert.... More

We use to go to the old location and the food was flavorful, but we were disappointed that the food was bland. The old location use to serve garlic bread that was out of this world, but they stopped doing so. My daughter said she wouldn't be back. I'll try again, it was so-so, not overly impressed. The atmosphere, on... More

We've been to Shrimp Boat several times, both at the old and new locations-- and I can honestly say that they had a great thing going that only improved when they changed locations! We were dining recently on a weekend evening with another couple from out of town, and I was glad I'd called early in the day for reservations.... More

It took us forever to find it as the GPS took us a mile off route. The address isn't correct on here or on their website. Not good for us out-of-towners. However, when we called, the guy on the phone was very helpful. It is at the corner of Bell Shoals & Bloomingdale. It is worth finding:) My husband had... More

Its been a year since we dined at Shrimp Boat. They have settled in to there new location, and the food is still great. Scallop and Shrimp meals ( specials) were outstanding. One year later still excellent prep and presentation. Good, prompt service with a smile. May be busy in the evening but at lunch no problem. Large crowd but... More

Great food and great service but no room to wait for a table. I ordered the stuff grouper and it was fresh tasty and filling. I do not mind waiting for a table, but we waited outside in order to have a seat at the bar to wait another half hour when the waitress said it was a twenty minute... More

Growing up in Florida, we love seafood and this is one of the best restaurants in Brandon in all respects. Great service, food and ambiance especially now in the new venue. Meals are served with warm bread and butter, salad and sides. Entrées are creative and unique. They have daily specials. The quality of the food is top. My only... More

I'm actually on my way to the Shrimpboat right now. I don't know what I will be eating tonight? What I do know is Al will have something incredibly delicious for us. The category 4 is always GREAT and the specials will be equally fabulous I'm sure! Everyone is so friendly and nice all the time, I can't wait to... More

One of the best meals I've had in some time. We had the ceviche and is the best I've had. I had the Asian inspired Tuna dish on fried rice and it was excellent as was my wife's surf and turf. We'll be coming back more frequently.
