Good Food but poor service

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. We were the first ones to enter the restaurant and to be seated. We waited about 40 minutes before... read more

Shrimp Haus was a very pleasant surprise. There were four cars in the parking lot when we arrived at 8:00 p.m.--most people eat much earlier in the winter time on South Padre Island--and the entry into the restaurant might make one think it isn't open, however, press on and you will find a delicious dinner. This restaurant specializes in shrimp... More

Who would think that Pier 19 would be lined up on a Monday noon so we turned South and pulled into Shlitterbaums Shrimp Haus without a clue what we we were getting into. Walked through part of what appeared to be an abandoned water park. (found out it is open in the summer). Walked up the stairs and saw what... More

Thanks for "stumbling" upon us and appreciate hearing your thoughts on the quality of service and food from the Shrimp Haus. Since we are located adjacent to the large Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark that is open seasonally during the summer (there is also an indoor portion located next door that is open year-round), it is a bit overwhelming for folks to...

Yes, it caters to aging Winter Texans (like me!), and has a cafeteria feel to it, and the entertainers are as old as the patrons, and they sing 50's and 60's country and rock from 5pm - 8pm (closes at 9, I believe). BUT the drinks are cheap, and the food surprisingly good. Tonight was our first visit, and we... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Shrimp Haus. The food was delicious. We received vouchers for a free meal from the Osprey Cruise we took (as part of a package). The Shrimp Haus offers picnic style tables and a very loud singing couple on the front stage which does not allow for real conversation. Overall it was a good experience... More

The Shrimp Haus is located on the south side of South Padre Island, TX., and set in beautiful surroundings.
