Great place for fish, shrimp, scallops or whatever's on the menu. Been coming here since Shrimp Ahoy opened and since they changed it to Shrimp House, and I'm always pleased with the food and service. Like I said, great place!

Very good shrimp and scallops. The fish was a nice size and very appealing visually but was tasteless.

Shrimp House is one of my favorite places to eat. The prices are very reasonable, you get plenty of fresh food, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It is family friendly. The shrimp are really meaty and big, not greasy.

The restaurant never disappoints. Servers are sweet and helpful. The food is yummy (fried shrimp) is our favorite. The restaurant is very popular and always has customers. I'm happy with the food and the prices.

After driving past the Shrimp House for years, we finally decided to stop and check it out. And we were glad that we did. The food (we only sampled the seafood as that seems to be their specialty) was really good and fairly priced. And the service was pleasant and timely. The area where the restaurant is located is not... More

I have no complaints about the food because we have been to this restaurant several times before. The jumbo shrimp is the best BUT their customer service leaves much to be desired. Sometimes the service has been slow but we've overlooked that in anticipation for the jumbo shrimp. Sunday night at 7:45 PM my husband and I went in for... More

Casual dining. Love this place. We've been coming here for years. The shrimp and fish is so fresh and cooked to perfection. I've had shrimp grilled and deep fried and I love both. They also serve a small steak that is also good. We always start out with their New England clam chowder, it is so creamy and flavorful. My... More

I'm your basic shrimp fanatic. LOVE shrimp, boiled, fried, tempura, scampi or just about any way they make them. Well, this little place has some of the absolutely best breaded, butterflied and deep fried shrimp I've ever put in my mouth. And you can't complain about the price, either. I ordered the 10 Large shrimp, and they were each a... More

If you like shrimp and other seafood, this is the place. The service is excellent and the menu is very extensive. I had the "large" sized shrimp platter which had 10 shrimp on it. My husband went for the deluxe combination platter which included a salad with shrimp, shrimp, fish and fried oysters. We both added clam chowder. The Manhattan... More
