My favorite seafood restaurant!

This a place I go to with friends, family and take out once a week. Just here with my husband & daughter this Monday. It's restaurant week at the Jersey Shore! We had a three course meal for 20.00. Choices were great, I had shrimp cocktail, stuffed salmon & carrot cake for dessert. Yummy. I could... read 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!

Took my mom out for lunch. This restaurant was recommended by the owner of Teddy Bears by the Sea who said it was a good local place, better then Klein's. So we tried it. I had a bowl of the New England Clam Chowder which was thick and flavorful and full of clams. My mom had a tossed salad and... More

We went to Mr. Shrimp on Friday with two other couples to try their Restaurant Week menu. We enjoy this restaurant and come back time and time again but we wanted to introduce friends. It was a great experience. First off, even though it was busy the service was great. Timing perfect, friendly and no one rushed us even though... More

We went for the restaurant week specials, but was told, oh sorry that doesn't start until 4 pm, but nothing online or outside the restaurant (plenty of restaurant week signs outside). Ordered Lunch specials and the fried shrimp and scallops were nothing special. Scallops were better than the shrimp, but not much better. The fish in the fish and chips... More

I haven't spent nearly enough time at the shore in the past few years. Visiting a friend today who just moved to a beach town. It got to be mid-afternoon and we hadn't had lunch yet. “Lets have seafood.” My grandparents used to own houses in Belmar, and I remember outstanding seafood restaurants there. “Lets go to Belmar,” I say....

It has been a while. So we went for Good Friday dinner. Very glad we did. I had two appetizers and couldn't finish: tuna tartar, really good, small pieces of lightly seared tuna with greens, cherry tomatoes, mango-greens, marinated in delicious dressing. Next the little mussels Siciliano, perfecst with pies of spicy sausage, garlic bread. My friend had the lobster... More

Others can disagree but I think Mr Shrimp has the freshest and best seafood out of all the restaurants in Monmouth County
