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...

Having heard some good things about the Shrimp Boat Grill, we took our granddaughter, who was visiting from out of state, there for a "special" evening. The restaurant was very chilly, so we sat outside. Bad choice! Cars pull up with their lights on right next to the seating area--and then of course, they "click" to lock and unlock their... More

The food is great. Make sure you go early or you won't get in! This was the second time we've eaten there. Good both times. Would definitely recommend !

I have learned over my lifetime that there are differing levels of expectation when it comes to restaurants and good food. We truly enjoy fine dining in independent places and had thought that the Shrimp Boat was one of those places. However, it really is more built for the masses and not "foodie" type folks as it is similar to... More

I found this restaurant looking for top rated places in Brandon. I have been coming to this part of FL a couple times a year for at least 10 years now, and have eaten in a lot of local eateries. I was more than pleasantly surprised by the quality and variety of items on the menu, and my choice turned... More

Just in case you wondered--yes, you can still find Lee and Jane in their favorite booth every Saturday ordering the Category 4 meal. You might ask why we order the same thing every time--doesn't it get boring? And the answer is still a resounding NO! This is our weekly adventure! We never know just what Chef will prepare because even... More

I've been to the old location and the new location and prefer the natural light at the new place. The old site was way too dark at lunch! Food however is the same. GREAT! Good coconut shrimp with a different dipping sauce, Piña Colada taste. Yummy! The plain fried shrimp are always cooked to perfection. Tail pulls right off. Service... More

I checked some reviews about this location not being the same since it moved to a new location but I decided to check it out for myself. The drinks did seem a bit smaller but the food was another story. As noted on my visit to their old location the menu still does not look like anything special but when... More

I was in town for the weekend, and It was past dinner time and nobody could think of a good place to go. My brother suggested Shrimp Boat, and I had wanted to try it out anyway. I have to say, it was really good. Our server was great. Very professional and funny as well. I forget his name though.... More

We have gone to this restaurant for several years, and we have brought many different friends here. Whether it is fish or shell fish, we have always enjoyed the food. Our friends have enjoyed the steak and hamburger, but we come for seafood. If there was a problem with food, we spoke up, and it was replaced. Service is friendly,... More
