Tourist trap! Sh**ty service, horrible margaritas... Sat at the bar, bartender did not mention that the bar had just been varnished... Needless to say my shirt now has brown varnish all over it; bartender did not offer to do anything AND charged me 3.25 for a crappy, pre-mixed margarita... Left, called and ask to speak to manager... AND THE BARTENDER... More

We have been to South Padre Island many times in the past few years and we try at least one different place to eat each time, so on the advise of our son and daughter-in-law, let the Shrimp Haus be our new place this year...we were told they had an all-u-can-eat special every night and we went on coconut shrimp...

Ordered 2 red snapper fillets and a kids flounder fillet, the snappers were not fresh so we returned them to our server Lorena. Lorena apologized and advised us she would have them replaced. A few minutes later a man (name unknown at time) comes up to us and asked how everything was and we explained the situation. He responds in... More

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

Sorry you did not enjoy your visit with us. We actually have received consistent 5 star ratings and the local news stations have commended us on more than one occasion on our cleanliness. We do not buy "frozen" shrimp...it is purchased directly from the local shrimpers that are in the Gulf to provide the freshest quality possible to our Guests.... 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.

Thanks for the kind words and happy to hear your daughter elected us to celebrate her birthday dinner! I certainly hope you let us know so we could have gotten you some Fried Ice Cream! Big enough for a table to share and almost calorie free (ok, not really, but sometimes you just have to splurge!) I also appreciate you... More

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.
