Good Gumpo and shrimp poboy. Took a while to get our food but it was peak lunch hour. The fish sandwich was OK, the fried shimp very good.

At my last visit all fish was fried. Baked, BBQ or other lesser fat options not available. Enough said if you care about your health, or simply don't enjoy fried food.

Thanks for joining us! In addition to offering fried seafood we do offer many items grilled or broiled. We hope you would consider giving us another try! I'm sure there is something on the menu you will enjoy! More

Nice variety of shrimp and fish. Sides were cold green bean salad and hot black beans with diced tomato & jalapeno. As you can see, there was nothing left! They do have a lot of fried foods so if you want it grilled, make sure you ask.

This is a great place for quick, fast, and good seafood. The menu is somewhat static, but the periodic specials make up for that. Prices are reasonable, and I like the price of a glass of wine, compared to many other places.

This is the best place for seafood, always fresh, cooked to perfection and portions are more than enough. The sides are always perfect too.

Ate at this restuarant on 11/4 and had the worst expience ever. For a restuarant that has Shrimp House in it's name one wold assume that the shrimp served would be beyond reproach.

What a great place to relax and enjoy the best shrimp you can find anywhere. The restaurant is clean, open, friendly, and relaxing. You choose your meal, pick it up at the counter and dive in. This is simply an old fashioned "coast-like" seafood restaurant without the frills. I love to eat here, especially for the perfectly coated and friend... More
