We were traveling and saw the review and decided stop. It is an order at the counter and pick up at counter. It is cash only. One big room, nice and clean. I had fried fantail shrimp, slaw and. hush puppies. My husband had fantail shrimp and whiting fish filets. It was all good but nothing real special. I would... More

I did something I have not done in over twenty years. I went on a first date and we decided to meet in Gastonia. It was up to me to pick a place and I am not familiar with the area so I checked Trip Advisor. I wanted something fun and different, nothing too upscale and full of itself and... More

Great down home food. Prices not that bad and been an institution in Gastonia for decades. I've been eating there since the late 1960's when they were located on S. York Road.

If you are looking for some good fried chicken, stop looking because Shrimp Boat has it. It has a wonderful crust and the chicken is juicy and tender. They also have some really good chicken livers. My mother and son were wanting them and I was told this was the place to go. They were right. They give you ample... More

It's OK if you are looking for fried shrimp or fish or chicken with biscuits and coleslaw. Simple fare, prepared in straight forward fashion

So juicy, you'd think it was leaking. I'm not sure how they get the chicken this juicy but it is wonderful. Served extremely hot. Great chicken.
