What a treat to know that they prepare menu items using fresh products not canned or processed items. Service was exceptional as was our dinners.

The atmosphere was very nice and the lighting of the bar is really neat. Very comfortable seating. Food was good but a bit bland. The staff was very nice, helpful, and informative about the menu options.

Good food. Enjoyed the Chipotle Shrimp and my wife enjoyed fish tacos. The warm bread was great. The staff was friendly and tentative.

We pulled in based on reviews and they were right. It a hole in the wall shopping center you will probably pass but the food was good. The service was great! A limited menu but they do it well. My shrimp and grits rated 5 stars, if the restaurant had been a tad cleaner it would've gotten 5 stars. My... More

Went there for a quick Birthday Lunch - my favorite place to go especially when Ron is singing in the evening.

I visited this restaurant in December 2016. The food and the service were excellent. They have a daily specials, they also have a daily special menu that becomes available at approximately 4 pm. I suspect that they procure the items they will serve and then prepare this special menu. This is a fixed price menu ($18.00)and there are plenty of... More

We enjoyed a “new battery” celebration at the Shrimp Boat with my brother and his wife recently. It was a Tuesday, so we could enjoy a bottle of our favorite cabernet at half price. The other choices were more difficult—there is a prix fixe menu as well as the regular menu and everything is delicious. We finally chose a Chateaubriand... More

We had been to the Shrimp Boat at the previous location and were anxious to dine at the new one. This location is much more elegant without being "stuffy". The service seemed on the slow side, we had to wait for the entrées even after we finished our appetizers. But, the food was excellent and worth the wait.

Had dinner with friends recently at Shrimp Boat Grill. The restaurant was not busy the night we were there and although the food was good, the service was terrible. I've never seen it take so long to get drinks (wine and beer) from the bar. When the drinks were finally delivered we didn't see the server again for close to... More
