OK, sometimes a "restaurant" quote...isn't just about the food and staff. Look around...seniors love this place...kids love this place and most people take "doggie" bags home !

My boyfriend and I ate on the outdoor patio last night, which was a Tuesday, around 7:30PM. The parking lot was full so we parked at a nearby lot around the block for I believe $3. We waited roughly 15-20 minutes before our table was ready. We had the option of eating at the bar where seats were available, but... More

I have been here 3 times, twice with the wife and once with wife and kids. Although I have eaten on the deck, this pertains to the restaurant inside. For those that mention parking problems--follow the sign that says see attendant. They have it figured out and will guide you accordingly. Pull up to the guy and follow instructions. Pretty... More

I am not sure who writes all of these reviews for this place. Maybe it's some people that have never had decent seafood or even food for that matter? I have grown up down the shore every summer for 25 years and every time we go to the shrimp box the experience is the same. It's overpriced diner food with... More

My wife and I have eaten dinner at the Shrimp Box this Summer and I have waited until after the third visit to write this review. We love seafood and during the Summer what is better than having seafood at the shore. I love the menu at the Shrimp Box. It has many great seafood options and deciding which dishes... More

I went here based on reviews online and a few friends recommendation. Honestly I was not impressed to say the least. VERY long wait and VERY slow service. Which if the food was excellent I would not have complained. But the food was average at best. Honestly I've had better calamari and clams at the boardwalk. After a 40 minute... More

This is a great place to sit and enjoy picturesque views of the inlet. The food was good but there was nothing really outstanding about our order. The pluses: a great kids menu (with decent options), nice salad bar, large crab-stuffed mushrooms, affordable oysters (I ordered a half dozen and I was served 7 -- that never happens). Cocktails and... More

I live near the Shrimp Box and see the constant line of customers trying to get in. I tried the restaurant a few years ago and found the food to be average. I was tempted to try it again for lunch because of their new deck which has a wonderful view of the Manasquan River. Four of us went for... More

This restaurant is overrated. The view of boats coming in and out of the dock, was okay, but nothing to brag about. Our waitress Michelle was very nice and attentive. However, when our food arrived, all five dishes were cold. The appetizers were just ok, the clams casino were great, but the stuffed mushrooms with crab meat were not good... More
