Came there last week with family to kick off their vacation/bday. Had eaten before outside in waterpark and was pleased. But was disappointed after dinning upstairs inside. Took forever before waiter arrived ( was only one other family inside at this time dinning) lots of staff running around prepping. Made our order of drinks and took so long thought we... More

The salad bar offering is tiny and the food was average. Our friend had the pizza, which he said was good. But we had better seafood elsewhere. We got a taxi to come here thinking it would be a nice dinner out... Fail. It is really just a place to eat if you are at the water park.

This place is mediocre at best. There are several restaurants on the island that are better. It is convenient to Shlitterbaun however the food is not good. I ordered the fried fish and shrimp and the fish fillets were not good at all. The shrimp was ok but for the money I have had better. My advice is to visit... More

Thanks for your candid opinion and reviewing the Shrimp Haus. I am surprised about your shrimp comments as very few places can offer shrimp that is purchased directly from the boat as we do ensuring the quality and freshness that most of our Guests insist on. I have shared your comments with our restaurant staff as substitutions are available and... More

Grandaughters and I had lunch during our stay in Schlitterbahn. Shrimp was good and prices were very reasonable. Way above normal park food. Atmosphere was great-- only wish they had an outside area where kids could have swimsuits on rather than having to return to room and get coverups on.

Thanks for the nice words....shrimp is purchased directly from the local fisherman so you can always count on the freshest Gulf shrimp around! Sorry that you weren't informed about our outside area where folks who wish to relax and stay in their swimsuits are allowed to dine and still enjoy the entire menu! Come back soon! Mike More

My daughter and I were craving fried shrimp, so we decided to eat outside here on our last night on the island. The fried shrimp were good but not great. The view was amazing. They were out of ice cream?? My daughter was disappointed!!

Nothing better than locally caught Gulf shrimp which we buy directly from the locals.....great for the Guest and good for the local economy too! Views of the beach and blue Gulf waters are a treat in themselves....I will check on the ice cream as that should never occur and I hope next time you try the Fried Ice Cream (enough... More

mmm....blackened shrimp, one of my personal faves! The Coconut Shrimp is well-known from Guests and locals as one of the premier offerings at the Shrimp Haus and of course, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico isn't too shabby either! Thanks for the review and we hope to see you here again real soon.... Mike More

The atmosphere was nice, and the service was good. We had a large group that ordered a good variety of items, and most of everything had a bland taste. Definitely needed some seasonings added. The food just wasn't great or that good.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your recent visit....sorry to hear it wasn't "spiced up" enough this time for you....hope you will try us again. May I suggest a couple of the dishes with a bit more zing and/or added seasonings? Tequila Lime Shrimp, Pepper Jack Shrimp, Blackened Fish Tacos...to name just a few. Thanks again, Mike More

The food was horrible. I had the pepper jack stuff shrimp...a fried nightmare. My bf had the broiled platter with minimal portions and bland at best. The food arrived cold and it was not busy in the least. Cheesy singer. The ambiance was terrible...overall a huge disappointment.

I appreciate your sharing your recent visit thoughts though I am disappointed in the fact you did not enjoy yourselves more. As you can tell by the overwhelming amount of positive reviews, we strive to exceed each Guest's expectations and are quick to react when told of a less than exemplary experience.

This is Schlitterbahns restaurant located in the park. The food is very good and of course they specialize in all varieties of shrimp cooking. They have a huge salad bar and also serves mixed drinks.
