Outdoor seating overlooks the water park on the 2nd level so would probably be interesting at lunch to people-watch. At dinner time it was all quiet... read more

I went to Shrimp Haus with my husband for our 25th wedding anniversary. I had the pecan encrusted red snapper and my husband had thecoconut shrimp. The snapper was the best on the island. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his shrimp. Our waiter, Steven was attentive and enhanced our overall dining experience. The manager David stopped by our table to check... More

The restaurant isn't much to look at... Plastic chairs kind of place. Prices are decent to a little bit high for what you get. Par to subpar food. I had the calamari and shrimp brochettes. Neither were great, though both were eatable. The calamari was soft and a little cold. The brochettes had been under a heat lamp for a... More

it was great all-you-can-eat shrimp for $12.99 but the service wasn't that good at all, they serious need to get some good help in the restaurant ! I had a good atmosphere and the shrimp was good, just not worried enough about customer satisfaction

I went with my daughter on the first night of our stay at schlitterbaun resort. Kids menu was very limited. There was no fresh seafood options which I found to be unacceptable at a beach front restaurant. The restaurant was dark and uninviting. Beverages were served in plastic cups even for indoor guests. We ordered calamari for an appetizer. It... More

The food was great. We all ordered different shrimp plates so we all could share and try different plates and we enjoyed all of our different style of shrimp. The service was great. We really enjoyed it. And the bonus is great salad bar with the dinners.
