We have had a few friends mention this place and how much they enjoyed it. We got a group together to check it out. So very glad we did. When we first entered the parking lot we did not expect to see such a nice, classy atmosphere. It is in a strip mall so expected good food, but not the... More

I ordered the chicken Marsala and what I got was something resembling chicken strips sitting on top of a brown gravy. My side Caesar salad was soggy from all of the dressing and cheese they put on it. Needless to say I will not be coming back but the service was great.

You will need a reservation on the weekends if you don't want to wait an hour or so, it's a very busy restaurant. The shrimp is always good. They took my favorite grilled shrimp with drawn butter off of the menu, but last time we were there, they fixed that for me on request. The au gratin potatoes are the... More

My wife and I tried the Shrimp Boat and we we're a little disappointed. She had the Shrimp Pesto Pasta and it was nothing special. The shrimp were bland and the pasta had no flavor either. They did take it off of our bill. As for my meal, I started off with the raw oysters which were very good and... More

We got the fish and shrimp box with two sides and it was excellent! The shrimp were BIG and fresh....the fish was not overly breaded and deep fried perfectly (not grease soaked). We do love their food.

Arrived before 6 on a Friday and were seated swiftly. Our server was asked if the restaurant could accomodate a special diet when beverages were ordered. She returned with drinks and assurance restrictions could be honored. Another server brought the entree salad which arrived with bland shrimp and 2 of the forbidden ingredients and no oil and vinegar as ordered.... More

My wife and I got off the interstate, on our way home from Disney, to eat at one of our favorite restaurants in the area only to find it closed down. Looking around for another place to eat, I had her get on Trip Advisor which led us to the Shrimp Boat. The menu was relatively simple and easy to... More

The restaurant my husband and I tried to go to closed, so we looked for a new place and found this one. We are certainly happy with our find! At 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon, we were surprised to find a restaurant so full, but we were seated immediately. Our waitress was friendly & knowledgeable about the menu. Shortly after... More

They have good food and good quality but small portions for the price. I would go back but will try other places first
