“Great crab cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Good seafood and one of the best crab cakes to be had at the shore. It can get crowded and you might have a wait but food is worth the wait especially the crab cake and service is generally good. They also have take out if your in a hurry.

“Super, fresh seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

If you are looking for fresh seafood this is the place. When you enter there is a long counter with all of their offerings, but no fish odor. It is very clean and fresh. We have bought seafood here to take home and prepare ourselves and also used their catering services. All of the food was expertly prepared and delicious. Our guests loved all the food we chose. We never sat down to eat as it is just wooden tables and chairs and no atmosphere.

“Jersey Shore Fave”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

As a Jersey Shore Boy who has moved to the big city, I still return regularly throughout the year. Mr. Shrimp is a required destination on each visit. The restaurant itself is clean, tables reasonably spaced and the service (generally local high school or college kids) is reliably good. The decor is fairly non-existent when compared to other fish emporiums along the coast and it can be noisy. My food selection is fairly limited as I could live on their fish & chips, so 90% of the time that is what I order. I just as often order the same for take out. The delicious fish portion is very generous and the fries good. Other items that I like include the mussels, calamari and linguini with clams. Crab cakes are not up to that same level. I actually look forward to off-season visits as then it is less frenetic and more of a local spot.

“Really enjoyed the seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Haven't been back to Jersey shore for 12 yrs .I grew up on the Jersey shore. and we were lusting for Jersey shore seafood. Steamers, flounder, crabs, etc. Went to Mr shrimp and ordered steamers...OMG were they delicious!! sweet, succulent and I dipped them in there own broth. Also ordered the stuff flounder. It was good but not great, a little dry and I don't like them cooked as a rolled up version. Yes, I'd go back especially for the steamers.
