Sunday Dinner with the Parentals

This place was really good for our evening dinner. We had all you can eat shrimp and it was really good. They also had open salad bar and all items looked and tasted fresh. Good choice.

We had a complimentary lunch/dinner at the Shrimp Haus after our Osprey cruise of the Port of Brownsville, The cruise was outstanding but when we arrived at the Shrimp Haus the service was so poor we had to ask a wait staff who had our table after waiting for at least 20 minutes, no drink order, nothing.

The shrimp were OK, the margaritas were unreasonably sour, and the menu was confusing. The prices and specials list outside were lower than the actual prices on a confused menu as some prices were different depending on the day of the week. To make things worse, the waiter was a rookie and could not easily explain the offer. Dirty Al's... More

This is a great place to get shrimp of any type your little hear desires. Lots of people love their coconut shrimp. I love the lime shrimp dinner! Their salad bar is the best on the island and their margaritas are the best on the island as well. They offer great entertainment which is a bonus.

Shrimp Haus is located right next door to and perhaps in Schlitterbaun water park. That might should have been the first clue. Their decor and atmosphere were top notch. They have a full service bar and a great looking menu. The special of the night when we went (Saturday) was Prime Rib. However, they boast being the home of the... More

All of our shrimp are purchased "straight form the boat" from local shrimpers to ensure the freshest, highest quality shrimp available on the Island. The all you can eat shrimp is available everyday and specially priced on Mondays! We also run, as you mentioned, different nightly specials every... More

The restaurant is large and has a really nice 'island feel' to it. The food is quite good but the service at the time of our visit was deplorable. We were coming off a large tour with the group.
