Started out with head on shrimp as a welcome ...yummy. I had a shrimp basket, husband had lump crab cakes. We had a basket of batter deep fried string beans and some hush puppies. We were not headed here to eat, but decided to turn around and try. Sure glad we did! A little expensive, but we will probably make... More

Went here for lunch after boating with the family. They have a crab special during the day, which is a great deal to take advantage of. They literally have the best steamed shrimp I have ever had in my life, they are so juicy and fresh. Also enjoyed their scallops which are cooked in white wine and garlic. Their fries... More

I picked up cooked shrimp and brought it back to our camp ground. It was fantastic! Cooked perfectly. I got 3lbs for about $40/$45.

This is a great place to get fresh seafood. We got shrimp and scallops to cook ourselves. Both were outstanding. Great service and great seafood. Perfect combo

Every time we visit Ocean City we have to stop here to eat - great seafood that you can buy out front and cook yourself, take out, or eat in. Have eaten crab, shrimp tacos, and all kinds of things and love it all ....the non seafood eaters in our group were happy with the burgers so that's a plus.... More

Was looking for a place that had delicious local crabs by the dozen but was super casual and affordable and we found just that! Shared a dozen crabs with the fella and the flavor was super yummy. We were first timers and our server (which I could remember her name!) sat down with us and taught us the ropes of... More

The Shrimp Boat is our "go to" place for the freshest, tastiest, most succulent shrimp around. Although they do have inside seating, we always opt to eat outside and enjoy the simple ambiance outdoors. When you arrive, you're always treated to a free sample of their "heads-on" shrimp, which are fantastic. Have I mentioned that the shrimp is awesome? Definitely... More
