We were sat instantly only to sit there for 30 minutes before we finally got up and left after not 1 single server came over to our table at any point. There was no wait and they weren't busy so there was no excuse for anything over a 5 minute wait for a server to stop by and take our... More

First visit to the restaurant. Had read other review and was apprehensive. Went for lunch and was surprised that the food was so good and the prices are comparable to other restaurants of the same caliber. Also, the craft beer selection was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant for sea food.

We were very surprised.... this great place is in a strip mall but worth the stop. I am gluten free and they were not only able to accommodate me but it was delicous. They made me mahi mahi tacos (minus the tortilla) and that was delicious, but they have gluten free grits that are out of this world. I have... More

I tried Shrimp Boat Grill after several of my friends recommended it. I was impressed. We were lucky enough to be seated outside, the patio is actually very nicely enclosed and private. The live music was a great addition in the background too. The menu was not too big which I like, so many things looked good it was hard... More

We decided on the Shrimp Boat Grille on a recommendation from a friend. We ordered the Cerviche and Fried Green tomatoes for our appetizers. They both were delicious. Tender bay scallops and shrimp with chopped vegetables in a lime marinade with hot fried pita chips made the Cerviche an excellent choice. The fried green tomatoes were topped with sauteed spinach...

The restaurant is quite large and nicely laid out. We had pre-booked for Saturday, we were greeted and served promptly throughout our meal. We both had the Category 4 by recommendation, it proved to be excellent, quite adventurous in style and apparently constantly changing. We went for live music from the great Chuck Weirich and of course good food, all... More

We sat for almost two hours next to a family group with a screaming two year old whose parents refused to even attempt to quiet it down. Even after complaints from many tables, management refused to talk with them. In addition one of our party did not get their food until the rest of us were almost finished. The food... More

Did an overnight in Brandon, outside of Tampa, and ignored our concierge's dining recommendation to end up here. It was a ways to go, but we were very pleased with the results. Excellent seafood, and good wines and beers. Pleasant outdoor seating (with protective screened-in tables). Would go again if in the area.
