Can't go past without stopping

Best fresh seafood in the area. Can't go past without stopping, have even gone out of my way to stop. They will gladly pack your order in your cooler on ice, or cook it for you. I have done it both ways and equally as good. Yes the shrimp have the heads but once you have their shrimp you will... read more

We had steamed crabs (jumbos), corn, hush puppies, french fries, hot dog, fried green tomatoes, and brownie sundae. The crabs were huge and decently priced (based on the market). The other food was also just as good. They do not have hard alcohol but they do have beer and wine. Service was a little slow but it was crowded and... More

Stopped in with my friend who has never been here. She's not a shrimp fan, but after trying her free sample she was hooked. We ordered 5lbs cooked to go and was able to get the medium/large shrimp for about 10bucks a pound. While waiting for our shrimp to be ready, we both ordered an orange crush. Perfectly made! When...

Great shrimp! Bought it fresh and cooked it ourselves. Keep in mind the "fresh shrimp to go" comes with the heads on. Great eating-learning experience for the family. Delicious!

The Shrimp Boat is the place to get the most delicious steamed shrimp....bar none. The building itself is a bit antiquated but adds to its charm. Captain Joe is a very charming man and goes out of his way to make you feel at home. The food is not over-priced and you won't leave hungry. Thanks to Captain Joe I... More

The Shrimp Boat is located on Rt. 611; turn right off Rt. 50 (east) and the Shrimp Boat will be a short distance past the shopping center on the left. The restaurant is the type of place where you can pick hard crabs , order sandwiches, etc., or order a full dinner. It offers a very relaxed atmosphere. Upon arriving,... More

I am not sure how they do it, But their food is so fresh on the carry-out side and the restaurant menu carry-out/dine in menu is delicious. The Grouper bites, Crabs, Hand Cut Fries, Tuna Tacos... Everything is fresh and made from scratch... Everything. Saw them unloading some Jumbo Crabs today, I think we will be back for Crabs tonight.... More

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 the fried shrimp and the... More
