The food was amazing. We had the the ceviche for the appetizer, which was made fresh and great quality. They give you a lot for what you pay! Coconut shrimp with cilantro lime rice and potato pancake for me, fried shrimp wth broccoli and cheese grits for my mother. Both amazing. Quick service but absolutely amazing service. We had Dan...

We've gone to the Shrimp Boat Grill a few times, and have never been disappointed. One we were there they had live music, which was a bit undesirable, but gave us something to talk about.

One order was undercooked & waiter not very sympathetic. The other entree was almost all pasta with little of the seafood advertised. I won't return.

We have enjoyed the Shrimp Boat for lunch and dinner and are never disappointed. Friday night shrimp and filet are perfect size for smaller appetites and the quality is outstanding. We learned last visit that their sides are all house made and we were also impressed with the variety of the nightly specials. This is a great place to dine... More

Talked the SO into going here for my bday and was not disappointed. The best seafood I've eaten in Brandon (not counting sushi). Romantic and upscale-ish atmosphere, but still comfortable. The staff was amazingly friendly and really aided in making our dinner a wonderful overall experience. After going here, I can't think of a reason to go back to Bonefish... More

We were fortunate to catch the owner in a minute of downtime. He showed us the space next door where they are expanding the dining room and kitchen to accommodate more folks. Very personable. We enjoyed great cocktails before dinner and then shared appetizers and entrees from the fixed price special menu. Although we professed to not want to eat... More

We love to take friends with us to the Shrimp Boat. The atmosphere is so friendly—the staff is so helpful and knowledgeable. Last Saturday, after choosing Coquille St. Jacques, prime rib, grilled salmon, and Tuna Poke, we discussed tapas. Our friends wanted to prepare a dish that used chicken gizzards. After arriving at an impasse over how to prepare them,... More

LOVED Shrimp Boat when it was on Lumsden, had a great ' seafood joint' feel, great service and really good food. Now it feels like a country kitchen with a very modern bar, service is not very good. Food is still ok, au gratin potatoes are the best thing on the menu!

Always a good place to eat. They were in a smaller area but became so popular that they moved to a larger building which is always a good sign. Place is friendly, not to loud and service is good.
