The first time we went here, I had the stuffed shrimp. I was NOT impressed. The second time, I had the all you can eat salad bar, and it was MUCH better, but that's just because I make a great salad! =)

Even our seven year old daughter told us that she never wants to go back to that restaurant. Very sad place. Very cheap and cheesy in every way. The fish tanks that were supposed to be so cool were co erred in algae and I can only imagine how the kitchen looked. Scary!! Food was nothing special. All prepared from... More

My daughter chose this restaurant to celebrate her 22nd Birthday. The food was delicious and Cassandra the waitress offered excellent customer service. She went above and beyond with a smile always on her face. She made us feel very welcomed. We will definitely be back.

We placed an order to go. We all loved it. Greek salad, shrimp tacos, the burger was huge, the cheese pizza small and the all 3 basket was good. Crab cakes were huge. It was a nice meal.

After having dinner at Shrimp Haus on Tuesday night we returned on Thursday to take the kids to Schlitterbahn. After several hours of water play the kids get hungry and my son wants pizza. We head to the outdoor Shrimp Haus and ATTEMPT to order the kids cheese pizza. A girl takes our to go order and walks away. Over... More

Lynn, Please accept my apologies for your experience on your Thursday visit. I am appalled that anyone on our staff would interact with a Guest in such a manner. I have shared this with our Food and Beverage Director and restaurant management team to look into immediately. You mentioned that you had already visited two days prior (on Tuesday) and... More

We were staying at Schlitterban water park and decided to try this place, since it was part of the complex. Service was really slow, and they weren't busy. My wife ordered the pineapple/cilantro shrimp, she loved it ! The steamed vegetables were very good also. One of my sons had the fried shrimp and eat ate it so fast, I... More

We went here for the all u can eat shrimp. The service was good and the salad bar was fresh even though the crowd was very light. With the shrimp basket you get onion rings, fries and hushpuppies. The onion ring and hushpuppies tasted like yesterdays leftovers and were completely inedible. The shrimp and the fries however were fresh and... More

Thanks for visiting us! Hope you got your fill of the all-you-can-eat shrimp, fresh from the Gulf. I appreciate your comments and am sharing your positive comments and critiques with our staff to ensure the quality we demand. Fries are onion rings are fresh cut, so it is puzzling to me the "leftover" taste you experienced but will make sure... More

Our family had dinner at the Shrimp Haus while staying next door at the Schlittebahn resort. Even though it was after 8:00, the restaurant was still moderately busy. I asked for a table with a view and received a nice table near the windows. We dined on peel-and-eat boiled shrimp and fried shrimp. Boring I know… since they have so... More

Thank you for your review and I sincerely appreciate your taking the time to "re-post". The Fried Ice Cream is a huge hit with our Guests and can feed up to four easily. The shrimp is purchased locally directly from the shrimp boats to ensure the highest quality. For other readers of the post and my comments, I sincerely appreciate... More

Took forever before waiter arrived ( was only one other family inside at this time dinning) lots of staff running around prepping. Made our order of drinks and took so long thought we... More
