I discovered this place 5 years ago on my way back from the beach and I'm so glad! I visit them at least twice on my annual trip to OC. They have the best shrimps I have ever eaten! And not to mention their crab cake sandwich and fried green beans and... I could go on! The employees are always... More

Surprisingly, only Shrimp Boat has Jumbo crab on Monday - no other place in OC has it. Call in advanced definitely cutting down the wait time. Also their sweet potatoes fries are delicious.

Every year we stop and get fresh food from the shrimp boat. Joe and the crew do a great job making us out of towners feel welcome. We had the crab cake sandwiches, salad, and fresh boiled shrimp and it was all delicious right down to the garlic green beans. I don't understand what some of these negative reviews are... More

My wife and I had stopped at the Shrimp Boat to buy fresh shrimp at their retail location. Last week we stopped to the restaurant and were most disappointed. We ordered raw oysters and raw clams and both were quite small. The "fresh catch of the day" Flounder Filet was not only not fresh but was so definitely previously frozen... More

The food was ok. I got the coconut shrimp and fries. The shrimp were fresh, but didnt really taste like coconut. I thought that everything was overpriced. We also got an appetizer of boneless chicken wings. They came out as 10 pieces of chicken smaller than a chicken nugget. and charged us like $11. All in all the food was... More

We got there late at night, 20 mins before the kitchen shut down. They put out about 6 steamed shrimp to try. They were delicious. We then had crabs and fried green tomatoes. Awesome! The other excellent part was our server Debbie. She stayed late, put up with us, and was really helpful, understanding, and never rushed us. Def worth... More

We were looking for a new place to try in Ocean City. The Shrimp Boat got great reviews, so we decided to give it a try. It's just a little shack in a gravel parking lot just outside of town. We were up to try the sandwiches, though. The lobster roll was pretty good and stuffed with fresh lobster. My... More

Wonderful meal. Lobster was really good and reasonably priced. This is casual dining at its best. We have been coming even before it was a restaurant.

We always have a great meal there. Yummy seafood, large portions, and good choices. But, every time we go in the summer we have wait staff that kind of forgets we are there. Not bad service in the fall or spring though. Worth the risk.
