Fish Tacos at Shrimp's

Went here for lunch after a boat tour, ordered the Fish Taco Special which was really good. Nice presentation, very tasty, plenty of food for the money. My friend had the Fried Fish and Chips, good portion but just so so on flavor. The place was pretty empty at the lunch hour during the week but... read more

We had dinner here on Monday for the all you can eat shrimp. Rick was our waiter and he was both friendly and efficient! The shrimp were delicious and he was quick to bring all of us as much as we wanted. We had the added pleasure of hearing a few musicians perform who were holding shows later in the... More

We had all you can eat shrimp which was hand breaded fresh gulf shrimp. Fantastic! Our server, Rick Leal was so attentive. He refilled our shrimp more than once, was so friendly & polite. The food was great, and the service outstanding! Also, the Happy Hour Margarita was larger than I expected for the price. Can't wait to go again!

Friend and I came here for dinner and found it to be great experience. Lots of shrimp on the menu, what else would you expect with the name - but note to those not so fond of shrimp I think the non-shrimp selections were few. Servings are a generous size, fresh shrimp - fantastic fresh veggies. I do not think... More

Janice S, Thank you for the kind words and visiting with us. We try and provide a well-rounded menu (a couple of pages of "non-shrimp" items), with great Gulf views and entertainment designed to keep everyone happy!

This restaurant has more ways to order Shrimp then the famous Forrest Gump. It is located next to and is a part of the Schlitterban Water Park and Hotel on South Padre Island. It has a huge parking lot so even in peak season there is plenty of room to park and a golf sedan will pick you up for... More

Four of us visited and3 considered their food good to very good. However, my shrimp enchiladas were terrible. Far from full of shrimp, mostly tortilla with a little cheese on top. Came with a pile of rice, salad (even though trip to salad bar was included), and thats it. Beans were mentioned by server as being included but they did... More

WilliamS404, I'm sorry to hear that your shrimp enchiladas were not up your (or our) standards (they are one of my fave items!), but am pleased the rest of your party enjoyed their meals and experience. The shrimp enchilada special you came in for (just $7.99 during Market Days ) is a great value with a trip to our large,... More

By the name of this restaurant, you would expect a LOT of shrimp dishes, and you won't be disappointed! But there are so many items on the menu that everyone will find something delicious to choose from. I personally wanted to go to this restaurant because they have sea scallops on their menu, an item that is becoming increasingly hard... More

The Shrimp Haus is perhaps overshadowed by other seafood restaurants on the Island. It is part of Schlitterbaun Water Park and therefore may only be known to its patrons. But it has it's own entrance and in a way it's own charm. People can look out on certain parts of the park. But for us the best part is that... More

DavidJJ, Thanks for being frequent visitors and taking the time to post your experience. We are a separate entity from the waterpark (open year-round and provide beach views as well) but do appreciate our collaboration with the waterpark during the peak summer season. Our salad bar serves only the freshest ingredients and if we feel the product is not up... More

The food was just ok. The shrimp tasted weird. I really don't think any of the shrimp was fresh. I think it was or had been frozen....I don't know it was just weird. The chicken was good though. And Steven, our waiter, was very accommodating.
