Stopped there for a cold beer and some snacks after working the Malecon. Great setting overlooking the Pacific. I have the seafood ceviche, very good and my wife ordered the shrimp tacos, also very good.

We had the 10 piece shrimp bucket a couple of times during our 2 week stay. Great juicy shrimp, also various cooked shrimp prepared in many ways. Service is fine. Prices are fair. Location on the patio is nice for a beer and a meal.

The wait staff were very kind and helpful. Still yummy food and just wanted some T-shirts to have since I didn't have mine from 1965. But they didn't seem to have a full on management, but food and service was good!

We enjoyed a stop here during Carnaval! It had a great location, good food, and great service! They often have live music, and that just adds to the fun!

We had eaten here a few years ago and knew we would not be disappointed! (In fact, booked the hotel directly adjacent to the "Bucket" to be near by). Highly recommend the chilled peal and eat shrimp. Very accommodating servers, and excellent breakfast menu!

If you are here and in the market to try some seafood, this is the place. At first, we were concerned because we have ate at other seafood places with little satisfaction. But we tried it anyway. Upon aesthetics, it's not much to look at....More

I think you are thinking about The Shrimp Factory. The one close to the Playa Mazatlan.
