Great food from beef to chicken and there namesake, shrimp. Fresh, fresh, fresh. The staff was attentive but didn't hover over the table. The amount of food was incrediable. Daily specials that would knock your socks off. Went with another couple for a weeks vacation and this was unanimously our favorite place.

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...

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! =)
