Excellent seafood in a hidden little spot

The food here is by far some of the best in Ocean City. Although you won't find yourself here unless you take the wrong turn, it's well worth your time if you're in for good seafood. I suggest sitting on the patio outside, the interior is rather old and rundown. The food is excellent, especially... read more

we called ahead for a large party but when we arrived they were very confused. We ended up doing takeout which was ok.

This is our first time the SB and we were not disappointed. The dinning area is on the smaller side with some outdoor seating. Another reviewer used the description "unassuming" and it suits! They bring you a steam shrimp for each person as a starter to wet your appetite for their shrimp. Their salads are fresh and large enough to... More

We stopped on the way back to the campground on OC Cruise Weekend. The staff is very friendly - everyone gets to taste a piece of shrimp if you go to the take out counter that looks like a boat. Prices are very reasonable and the seafood is fresh, cooked to order. It's worth the 15-20 minute wait while they... More

We stopped at the shrimp boat on the way back to Assateague Island from Ocean City, MD. We ordered a dozen fresh oysters to shuck ourselves, a pound of the medium peel and eat shrimp and container of the Jumbo Lump crab. The shrimp was off the charts delicious and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone who likes a... More

The food is great and the service is excellent. It's a casual place that you don't have to worry about bringing kids swinging mallets to crack crab claws. But they have cold beer that washes down those yummy crabs, too.

The price of Crabs in OCMD is crazy expensive. I was so happy to find this hidden gem. 50 cents per crab during happy hour and yes its a great place for kids. Thats a lot better then $45 per person at the big Crab chain restaurants.

This may be one of the most unassuming gems in all of Ocean City. Located right off Stephen Decatur Hwy on your way to Assateague sits the Shrimp Boat. With a variety of ways to enjoy. Carry-out Super Fresh Raw Seafood, Shrimp, Crabs, Scallops, what ever they have is super fresh, as local as possible and amazing quality every time... More

We always come here to get fresh shrimp; they always are the best price that we can find. Lots of other fresh seafood & great prices, but you have to go early before they sell out.
