As good as I remember

This place is a Jersey Shore institution, and with good reason. Good if not excellent food, great atmosphere and decent prices. Granted we went on a Monday,,so we had a 15 minute wait for 3 people. But, if you time it right, the wait can be enjoyable as you sit on the inlet with a cocktail watching... read more

This is an alternative when the eateries on the other side of the inlet are crowded. Complete dinners are offered inside while the outside patio is nice in good weather. The salad bar has some odd selections of pasta salads without the more popular items like olives and veggies. The spinach had vinegar on it and we suspected that it... More

We were looking for a seafood restaurant in the Jersey Shore area. We found The Shrimp Box. I was sold on the salad bar included with all meals. It was crowded, so that was a good sign. Do not let the noise level other reviews mention deter you to visit. Make sure you take advantage of their early bird special.... More

My first visit, while my wife had been twice with friends. Strong garbage smell in the customer parking lot before and after lunch. Nice view of the fishing boats out the windows. The place was not busy, with empty tables when we arrived. The food was generally good, but the fried calamari appetizer seemed to have come from the freezer.... More

ParkTing was not good at all. We were not sure what was even going on, we were in a line of cars and it looked as if two young boys were parking cars. The boys never offered to park our car, maybe because we didnt have money in our hand. We went in and gave our name, then sat at... More

We made an early reservation, good thing because it was very crowded already before 5 o'clock. Waitress messed up a couple of things, fries vs. mashed potatoes on one order and broiled scallops vs. fried on another. I had the broiled trio, two of which (shrimp, scallops) were good and the third (flounder) was edible. Salad bar was worn out... More

We were a small group of friends that had not seen each other for a while. This was a "OK" choice for the food, but it was difficult to converse due to the crowded surroundings. The food struck us as nothing to write home about. Perhaps we'll return someday, but hopefully pick a less busy time.

Always busy but well worth the wait. Food was great, price was decent for seafood, portions were average with a nice salad bar. Would recommend walking since parking is limited and lot is usually full.
