I am lucky enough to live very close to Mr. Shrimp and always enjoy the food! The owner will not accept nor serve any seafood unless it is fresh and meets his high standards. For that I am grateful and that sets Mr. Shrimp apart from other seafood restaurants in the area. Recently enjoyed the broiled scallops and grilled sea... More

We love going to Mr. Shrimp. The name does not set the ambiance for a nice, quiet BYOB with great food. The food is pricey but always very good and the service is always very good. We enjoy the quality food with the nice ambiance.

While the seafood is above average, the prices are also above average - $22 for a fried seafood dinner, and no salad or soup is included. And stale bread sticks are only offered, a roll costs 50 cents ! Plus, the dining room is noisy beyond belief. Not the best at the Jersey Shore, by a mile.

Not too many places to dine in January at the shore. This place was recommended by a merchant in nearby Spring Lake, NJ. At 5:30 it wasn't too busy and we were able to get a table although we were told the place was booked for the rest of the night. Sesame breadsticks were brought out with a crab dip.... More

Visited this wonderful restaurant twice whilst visiting our daughter/granddaughter over the Christmas period. The menu here has many mouth watering dishes to choose from, you will be quite clearly spoiled for choice, all freshly prepared and a very good sized portion. All dishes reasonably priced. If you are in the area you MUST give this unpretentious restaurant a try, you... More

This unpretentious strip mall storefront BYO consistently serves some of the best fish and seafood on the Jersey Shore. Our recent visit was with another couple on a Sunday evening en route to a movie at the Beach Cinema. Chelsey, our server, was upbeat and welcoming, and flexible when it came to menu choices. Three of us selected specials, and... More

Visiting out of state, requested fresh seafood in the area, we were not disappointed. Our waitress had great input and answered all questions. 5 out 6 had different specials and all were impressed. Great selection of deserts after a great meal.

My wife and I chose this restaurant during "Monmouth County Restaurant Week", based on their published fixed price menu. Our meals were excellent and the portions were generous. The meal was properly paced and we did not feel rushed at all. Our server was attentive and helpful. The dining area was large and nicely decorated. We will definitely be back... More
