I think this was a little our of season for this place which looks more like a tiki hut. The salad bar was the best part of the meal. I had coconut shrimp, it was overly sweet. Two of us had the pepper jack stuffed shrimp, they said the cheese and breading were overpowering the actual shrimp. Another had the... More

A meal was included with the price of our Port of Brownsville tour. We went for lunch after the tour and it appeared the only customers were from our and other tour boats. They did not have enough staff to handle everyone showing up at one time so service was a little slow. The options available on the tour menu,... More

I have lived on the island for two years and finally made it out to the Shrimp Haus. We were pretty excited about going here as we don't go out to eat very often. The hostess was very nice and seated us right away. There was a total of about 8 tables in the entire place including a big party... More

Went there for dinner with my family. Service was fast and waitress did an excellent job. We had crab cakes for an appetizer. They were a good size, but not very good. I ordered the stuffed shrimp not knowing it was just regular shrimp with a crab cake on top. Since I wasn't fond of the crab cakes, I wasn't... More

Thank you for your thoughtful and thorough review. We always like to hear about our service and ways we can improve...while I am disappointed you did not enjoy the crab cakes, the pecan and coconut shrimp are both local faves and have been awarded for their taste! We hope to see you back again soon... Mike More

We ate here Dec 28, 2014. While trying to figure out what to order we asked about the free nachos that were supposed to be available during football games.

We came in December and there were only a handful or tables. Our waitress was a little spacy (forgetting extra plates for kids, bringing us water glasses she had already brought, forgetting wine we ordered) but the food came pretty quickly. We ordered Long Islands which had a very strange mix taste, so we switched to wine. Tried to order... More
