This is a family run restaurant. I have only been there for a sandwich and it was pretty good. They do serve dinner as well as lunch at a reasonable price.

This gem is family run . . . and it's a Greek family, so you know the food is going to be excellent. They have a wonderful restaurant where all their fresh seafood is prepared to your taste: baked or broiled. Portions are very large and freshness is the order of the day. They also sell fresh seafood for you... More

Fresh well cooked seafood at a great price. Family owned and ran. Fried seafood combo is for someone with a big appetite. Nothing fancy

I don't know what some of the other reviewers were talking about, this place is a gem! Yes the crowd is mostly senior citizens, but all good foodies know that seniors and cops are the mark of good food at a great value! Anyway, I agree with the assessment of the NE Clam Chowder but the rest of the seafood... More

Very dissatisfied. The New England clam chowder was green/brown. The bucket of steamed clams were so tiny. The place smells like a dirty attic. They were vacuuming and cleaning ceiling tiles a few feet away from the uncovered dessert and while serving food. Thoughtless!

We have been going to Shrimp King ever since they opened in Hamilton a lot of years ago.It has become our GO TO joint-and it is a joint-for a decent, affordable seafood dinner. The cooking here is not astounding. There is no spectacular wow dish or amazingly complicated preparation. Just very fresh and good seafood prepared very well. The prices... More

Unfortunately, the other reviews were spot on. Let me begin. The service was awesome. The waitress was very friendly and responsive. However, the atmosphere of the restaurant was dead and slow. Several, people came in for fresh fish but very few actually ate there. The few that did were senior citizens. I ordered Fried Scallops, French Fries, Potato Salad, Clam... More

Finally after passing this place for years, we decided to stop for dinner. I was really looking forward to enjoying some good fresh sea food. What a disappointment. It did not look like cooked fresh seafood and it was over cooked (broiled)and dry. The New England clam chowder was tasteless. Tried adding a little salt & pepper, still not good.... More
