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

Buy fish often at their market. Always the freshest. The restaurant is not fancy, food is very good but not outstanding. Service is always fast and friendly.

I wish I could rate the restaurant and the seafood market separately. I'd rate the restaurant at a 3. The food is good enough, but the choices are pretty basic - a lot of fried options, not a lot else. What they do, they do well, though, and the servings are large and the prices are low. The seafood market... More

Honestly, shrimp king is one of the best places to go and get fresh seafood! you can either get fresh seafood or take out or even sit down and eat. I start off with the fried calamari which is so good and crispy! For dinner, i always get the broiled combination...its a lobster tail, flounder, scallops, and more! it even... More

After years of passing by Shrimp King and always saying how we were going to try them, we are glad we did. Having said that, we would not recommend going here. Let me first say we were not looking for fancy, we were just hoping for a new great place to eat fish. We started off with Fried Calamari. The... More
