We like Shrimp Boat. Their fried chicken is what attracts locals and they have a very good business. I got the Chuckwagon Sandwich and it was very good. The fries and cole slaw were very good as well. You order at the counter when you arrive and pay when you order. The place is nothing fancy and probably qualifies for... More

This "fish camp" is a hidden gem of you like traditional fried chicken, hush puppies and onion rings. The onion rings are done with sweet vidalia onions and corn meal and are too die for. The hush puppies are not the sweeter kind but are great. The chicken is the best. Most blue collar restaurants are a bit segregated, not... More

The outside of this restaurant is nothing to look at. Plain white block outside.Don't let this change your mind about eating here. Inside you order at the counter when you go in and then sit in the dining side. The dining side was casual, somewhat nautical and very clean. It was a very pleasant environment. When your food is ready... More

The chicken is always crispy and done on the inside - consistency! They have added baked chicken to the menu now - tried it, but won't do that again. Stick with what is good!

I recently stopped here to eat for lunch while traveling through Rock Hill. I come by the place alot and finally decided to stop and try it out. I had the chuckwagon sandwich. It wasn't a bad sandwich, but it wasn't anything special either. It could have been better if the meat was a little thicker so I could get... More

Whenever we have a hankering for fried fish and other seafood, we head for the Shrimp Boat, a veteran Rock Hill restaurant. The portions, prices, and food is always good. This is not a fancy place, so kick back and enjoy.

The only reason that I didn't give them a lower rating is because I have eaten their fried chicken for 30 years, and it is ok. However, today I decided to try something different, so I got the calabash shrimp. I am not exaggerating when I say it is the worst calabash shrimp I have ever had. I took a... More

My spouse and I happened onto the Shrimp Boat during an early March 2013 travel stop in Rock Hill SC. We had planned dinner in "Old Town" Rock Hill, but on a Monday, it was closed tighter than an jug. So we spun the wheel on TripAdvisor looking for seafood and up popped the Shrimp Boat. The no-frills place is... More
