Very good and large portions

Had lunch here - they have a 6.99 lunch menu which is quite reasonable. Many fried fish sandwiches, lots of fresh fish plus raw clams and oysters- atmosphere is clean and bright - it is a byob too. From one of the locals, it is very crowded at night but they do take reservations. Our party of... read more

They have a byob policy, which is great if you know ahead of time. So grab your wine and beer! The place was busy even for a Tuesday evening. I enjoyed my side dishes more than my entree. The coleslaw, mashed potatoes and vegetables were all delicious. The stuffed shrimp was good but not great, a little dry. My husband... More

Always crowded. Lucky to get reservation as sort of last minute planning. BYOB. Friendly, knowledgeable wait staff. Seafood well prepared with good choice of side. One of the best selections for Restaurant Week as they have mix & match selections. Usually the problem is narrowing Dow the selection since everything is good.

My husband, baby and I went in on Sunday around 3pm. We were seated quickly and the hostess took our drink order which was also brought out quickly. Good so far. But then the waiting game began. It took our waitress 20 minutes to come over and take our order. She was far from pleasant. Maybe she was having a... More

We had a hankering for fried clams and decided to try this restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised by the clean inviting atmosphere of the restaurant. Our New England clam chowder was delicious and filled with flavorful clam bits. We also had mussels in garlic sause. There was a nice amount of mussels, though they were small in size. The garlic...

Good food but the price makes it an occasional stop. Buffalo shrimp are a purchase every time but again pricey.

I thought that this was just a retail fish store and found that the restaurant was attractive and served very good food. The menu was fairly extensive and there were also daily specials on a Friday night. Tables are well-spaced and the noise level is reasonably low for a large room. Service was friendly, efficient and timely. BYOB is always... More

Great takeout restaurant if you want seafood fast. Service is great but during a rush might be difficult to get seating. If you can, take it home as you can walk right up to the market counter and order or call your order ahead and just walk in and pick up. Protip: if you like Fish and Chips stop by... More

Busy Sunday night so I understand the long wait, but the lobster bisque, as well as the linguine with white clam sauce, were so unbelievably salty that I could not finish them. In addition, the kids pasta was mush and sitting in a pool of butter. Bill was $75 plus tip for two adults and one child, which is pretty... More

We have been to Mr. Shrimp many times. Every time, the food is excellent and at a reasonable price and the wait staff is friendly and courteous. I highly recommend the Clam Pot. It's a combination of shrimp, lobster (whole), scallops, mussels, corn on the cob and potatoes in a clam broth. It's awesome!! Great clam chowder too!
