After finding the crab prices throughout Ocean City absolutely ridiculous, we stopped by Shrimp Boat on the recommendations of a friend. Captain Joe greeted us and gave us the complimentary shrimp samples before we could talk prices. A very nice feature. Crab prices definitely better than most. Crabs were excellent. Definitely a 5 out of 5. Shrimp was okay. Found... More

Have purchase shrimp here many times. They have a great variety of semi/fresh seafood and will steam it while you wait. Don't let the signs for the cheap shrimp fool you out front. That price is for the really small shrimp and all are sold with the heads on which are included in the weight. The old capt there will... More

Stopped here on a whim while riding our bikes between ocean city and our campground. We were promptly greeted and offered a free sample of shrimp. I am not a fan of shrimp, but this was really good! So we stuck around and looked at the menu... We decided our best bet would be a 1/2 bushel of steamed crabs... More

We had a great meal at the Shrimp Boat. The shrimp and crabs were so fresh and delicious. Captain Joe was fun to meet and gave us free shrimp samples. It was the best meal we had in O.C.

Stopped here with sleepy kids to get food to go. We had the shrimp with heads on (excellent), fried green beans (okay), sweet potato fries (good) and the kids had a hot dog and a grilled cheese. Definitely plan to stop again!

This is a small place, doesn't look like much from the outside. The food is awesome and the prices are great. I took a group of people to dinner here and we had trays of crabs, corn, shrimp, clams, potatoes and hush puppies. The table looked a mess when we were done, but it was an awesome evening. The waitress... More
