Met for a week night dinner with friends. They offer a good selection of dinners and several combo specials. They also offered several wine, liquor & beer happy hour specials (5 to 6:30). Food was all good & service was good.

My husband and I visited the Shrimp Boat on Sunday, October 16, and had such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. The greeter was smiling and was very informative while the waitress came with a beautiful smile and explained to us the dishes and what we could expect. I must say when the waitress placed the bread on the... More

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant today. Although Tripadvisor says it is in Brandon, FL, it is actually in Valrico. I had the most delicious shrimp cocktail and a the best ever Mediterranean salad (with grilled shrimp). The dressing was superb and shrimp was plentiful. I enjoyed my grapefruit martini too! My husband had the special which... More

We just experienced our first—and definitely not our last—Shrimp Boat brunch on Sunday. Our friends Carol and Sarah joined us in our adventuring and after consulting with Jessica over our choices, we shared our latest news and views. There was a special menu with unique dishes such as Egg Bowl (for Sarah), Sea Scallops N’Eggs (for my husband), California Crab... More

I go to the Shrimp Boat for a weekly networking meeting and have lunch there every time. The food is delicious and the service is top notch. I really enjoy the Shrimp and Grits, but today the special was a Snapper plate and it was wonderful! The place has nice and clean bathrooms, too.

The first time I went here was for dinner, and we were a large party at that time, so we were able to try different dishes. All was very good. One of the boys had the seafood trio, another had coconut shrimp, another had tilapia, another had the filet. We also ordered the sea scallops and grouper. Everything was very... More

We have eaten here several times and have enjoyed it very much. They have a special where you get an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $17. This is a good deal for the quality and quantity of food. Service is also very good

It's a little noisy or was when we were there. A little past the prime lunch hour things got a lot more quiet. Service was excellent. I loved my fried shrimp with cole slaw and French fries.

Thank Susan S
