“Lookin for shrimps”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2014 via mobile

Off we go was told about a shrimp place got there an they were closed, so across the street we go. First very inexperienced waitress, ok we can deal with that. The other person I traveled with ordered a adult beverage, you would think mid afternoon the bar would be stocked with everything,NOT... We placed our orders the only difference was I ordered a cup of shrimp bisque NEVER saw it. The Shrimp Brochette landed with fresh green beans an red skinned potatoes, green beans were not hot.. The shrimp were COLD... Thinkin wrapped in bacon an it was about raw next to the shrimp,being raised on Maryland Crabs n Oysters an travel a few coastal area you know when to not eat something... Let them fix the plate the second time.... Should have just said nope.... I am good with the little salad I had, both plates were this way. Your gonna tell me in off season your service an food are this disgusting, I think there were maybe 6 tables of people there. Not a place I will ever go back to. An since my job will have me in the area til at least March,not a place I will speak highly of.

Thank you for sharing your recent visit, even though I am disappointed in your experience.

I have shared your comments with ALL of our staff to determine what happened and why...as you probably noticed 6 of our last 7 ratings were 4 or 5 star ratings.

I certainly hope you will reconsider and try us again during your stay down on the Island and see what we are really all about and why our ratings have been consistently high.

I appreciate your specifics so that we can better determine where we did not fulfill your expectations.

Thanks again and we hope you will please visit again.

Mike

Thanks for the kind words and for visiting.

We have a very diverse menu and am glad that your party had the opportunity to try out several different dishes. All of our shrimp is locally caught and purchased by us directly from the local shrimpers to ensure the highest quality and freshness.

Once again, thanks for the kind words and we look forward to your next visit!

“Would return”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014

Respectful place to go great fresh salad bar. We brought some fish caught that day that they cooked for us at a good price I think it was 7 or 8 a person;). The drinks were made well. Manager walking around checking on food who was nice, and veggies cooked right! Potatoes were cut in halfs and seared perfectly! I hope they keep up the good work

“Texas size servings at a great price, freshest salad bar ever, just awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2014

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.

Thanks for the kind words, glowing review and it being unanimous on top of that....very humbling and THANK YOU again!

We have been working extremely hard to ensure we remain consistent and treat all of our Guests, locals and tourists alike, the way we would like to be treated.

With our shrimp purchased directly from local Gulf shrimpers, we can always guarantee the freshest available but it is still nice to hear such nice words.

We look forward to seeing you back again real soon!

Thanks,
Mike
