Typical large Jersey Shore Seafood

Gr8 salad bar good mixed drinks, decent seafood entries. Usually crowded weekends and all summer. Always a safe bet for a good time. Kid friendly nice view and a place to tie up your boat.

I honestly don't even know why I'm giving two stars to this restaurant maybe because the steamed clams were good because they didn't have any sauce on them it was just plain. We had to send back the coconut shrimp they were undercooked and greasy made with old oil and not edible. The lobster bisque was thick and had the... More

Stopped by with some relatives for lunch and no one was disappointed. The salad bar is great and the sunrise dinners are a good choice

It is set right in the marina with a great view of the fishing boats. To our pleasant surprise the menu was very extensive with specials on the lunch menu as... More

This was the perfect place to go for a tasty and hearty helping of fresh fish. My dad and I had the flounder and my wife and stepmom had lobster. The... More

Every year I make sure that I visit the Shrimp Box. The sea food is always tasty and cooked just right. The is a family friendly establishment. Alway a great dining experience. If you have the taste for a good sea food dinne, look no further. The shrimp Box is the place to dine.
