We heard of the Shrimp Box and took a chance. From the moment you enter, you are greeted warmly and taken to your table. The diverse menu puts you at ease, knowing you will find something to eat. The seafood is fresh, prepared exceptionally. The waitress/waiters are pleasant, and very prompt to your needs. An excellent choice for quality dining.

We've come to PPB for many years and have tried almost all the restaurants. We love the Shrimp Box - great food, reasonably priced and has awesome-fresh specials.

Recently had Mother's Day dinner at Shrimp Box. We had a delicious dinner from start to finish, appetizers, salad bar, excellent seafood entrees, and desert. Great ambience with a nice waterfront table. Attentive service, and even though restaurant was crowded and noisy, it was an unrushed, enjoyable meal and experience.

We love coming to rhis place. Its on the water. You can get a nice sunset. The tiki bar and outside dining area are perfect for a relaxing experience. Very clean. The food is great and always fresh. The crab cakes are more crab then crumbs. Get the Alaskin Kings Crab legs as an app. Our server Brian was excellent.... More

Place has an awesome view no matter if your inside or outside. My wife and I sat outside and were served by a wonderful bartender that went by the name Tom. He was very social and was very knowledgeable on the menu.

When you leave the restaurant after your visit, note the little marker by the door that shows how high the sea water was when hurricane Sandy struck. But hat doesn't seem to hamper the place. In fact people tell me that the food somehow seems to taste better after the hurricane. Don't know if that's true, but The Shrimp Box... More

Stopped for lunch last Friday and was greeted by a very friendly waitress who was immediately attentive to our needs. At the time of our visit (lunch), we were unaware that there was an "Early Bird Special" that started at 12 Noon which accounted for the crowd in the restaurant. Nevertheless, the lunch menu had great selections which we opted... More

We were in Point Pleasant for my son's baseball tournament. I literally called the restaurant at 6:30 pm hoping they could accommodate our huge party. They happily made a table for 16 of us at 7pm. We walked in and it was packed! I was unsure of how everything would turn out. Our server, Dolores, was such an awesome lady!... More

Friendly accommodating service and great food make this a locals favorite. Salad bar is fresh and plentiful and a great way to start the meal. Lobster stuffed with crabmeat is a wonderful value.
