Eaten here dozens of times and have never been disappointed. The tables next to the windows that overlook the inlet are the best! Our kids stay entertained by watching the boats come and go. The menu is large and there's something for everyone. They offer specials that include soup, salad, meal, and dessert. The seafood here is top notch and... More

We enjoyed our dinners at Shrimp Box. Fresh salad bar, well prepared fresh fish and good service. I recommend this restaurant. Not BYOB.

Let me start by saying the atmosphere was nice, great view right on the water. The salad bar was good, the waitress was excellent, but the food was just ok, I would think that being on the water in a beach town they would have super fresh seafood, but it was substandard, almost diner like food. I had the shrimp... More

We visited the Shrimp Box for the first time in a few years. It was good as usual. They feature a nice salad bar with all meals. They serve up very good fish at a reasonable price. The location is right on the water where all the fishing boats dock making for a scenic view. Service is average. The decor... More

The salad bar and bread did not disappoint! Waitress was very friendly but a little slow but they were busy. The view is always nice on the... More

We had shrimp of course! We had it fried and scampi style. Both were very good. You can eat inside the Shrimp Box or Outside The Box as the outdoor seating area is called. The food is very good and prices are typical of Jersey Shore restaurants.
