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.

I do have high standards when it comes to seafood because we previously lived in Florida, so I'm keeping that in mind as I write this review. For San Antonio, maybe this isn't bad seafood but when you've had excellent fresh fish and shrimp, this place is pretty disappointing. We won't be back.

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. I had a shrimp coctail to start and the shrimp were small and were very easily recognized as frozen shrimp not fresh. Ordered the stuffed shrimp as... More

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

Took my wife here for a nice night out. WOW was I wrong. Order at a register and wait for your number to be called, food on Styrofoam plates and plastic flatware. This place looked nice on the outside but was nothing more than a Cpt D’s or Long john Silvers with frozen fried fish on plastic trays.

Ordered over phone to pick up 15-20 minutes out. Arrived and waited 40 minutes for food. Other patrons in take out area waited up to 20 minutes without acknowledgement....not even a hello. Instead of communicating that my order had not been started or was lost just kept telling me that they were packaging it up. The pretty girl at the... More

Service is always courteous and friendly. We usually have shrimp. Best tartar sauce that I know! Today we had the new dinner for two. It was delicious. We had peel and eat shrimp and fried shrimp. Because we know that the food will be fresh and delicious, we continue to return.

We've been to the Forum location a couple of times and find the selections to be bland. This is a popular restaurant but it doesn't do anything for those in my party that have tried it. We are left adrift........
