This is our second visit to Shrimp Boat since they moved to their new location on Bloomingdale Ave, and I am even more delighted with this place the second time around. We arrived a bit on the early side, around 5:40pm, on a Thursday evening and were promptly seated. Two hours later when we left the place was nearly full.... More

We had been to this restaurant several years ago at their previous location. The new location is much nicer and classier. There is a regular menu and also a pre fixed menu ranging from $17-$20 each which include set choices of appetizer, entree & desserts. The selections are good. This is the option we did. FYI - There is a... More

The chef comes up with amazing stuff. Currently my favorite is the duck in the Prix fix menu. Thanksgiving turkey dinner was wonderful, according to the rest of our party. Excellent drinks and wines. Excellent staff.

Since there are only two of us we decided to go out for our holiday meal this year. We made reservations about a week ago for noon. When we arrived we were greeted by the hostess and taken directly to out table. The waiter came right over and took our drink order and brought fresh baked bread. They had a... More

We had dinner at The Shrimp Boat recently and were somewhat disappointed in the food.In comparison to eating there several times previously, this meal did not compare as well. Shrimp Scampi, my usual favorite at a seafood restaurant, was not prepared similarly to any I've had at any other restaurant in the past 15 years. I was expecting the typical... More

Best coconut shrimp ever! Also their shrimp florentine is so garlicky delicious. The portions are generous with leftovers bagged to enjoy at home. This is one of our favorite places.

Grouper can be rather pricey, so I only order it where I know the chef can do it justice. Had it grilled in a sandwich, it was a huge piece of fish, I cut off the ends and gave my husband some. It was juicy and so flavorful on a great bun. My husband had the cheddar cheese burger and... More

The food is great! They also have a bar area with unique cocktails. Sometimes they have live music. It's a much older crowd. They close early.
