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.

The seafood is legendary. Every view in the dinning room looks out at the river docks of fishing trawlers. Sometimes they're unloading the catch of the day. The prices are reasonable and more than enough to eat. There's a full bar, salad bar and something on the menu for all. They do not take reservations for small parties so we... More

Unexpectedly excellent. Kind of a foodie and wasn't expecting much, but boy I was wrong. Everything was perfect and our waitress was a pro! We'll be back!
