A friend recommended this tasty, fresh and authentic seafood restaurant just a short ways from the beach, and I was so glad he did! It was a quiet afternoon on a Sunday, and my friendly waitress helped me make a very difficult decision. I had the soft shell crab sandwich for lunch, and it was perfect. The fries and cole... More

We had a group of 30 people, the service was excellent, the food was delicious, the fish was fresh, the food was served promptly and the company was excellent. (Well, Mr. Shrimp can't take credit for that -- but the great service kept us all happy.) And best of all, my total bill was only $14!

We ate here for the first time in Sep 2016. The food was quite good. Obviously mostly a seafood menu but everything tasted fresh. Service was attentive and courteous. Our issue was really with the seating and the arrangement inside the restaurant. The tables are located in a large open setting, no walls or separators between tables. So it becomes... More

In spite of some negative reviews about the service, we decided to try our first visit to Mr. Shrimp on a Saturday night and were pleasantly surprised. We went early and were seated immediately. The service for the remainder of the meal was very prompt as well even though the restaurant was completely full with a huge crowd waiting till... More

I've made it a point to go here, whenever visiting parents on the Jersey shore. Love the garlic shrimp, crab cakes, & usually get some fish for grilling, this last time if was red snapper, & Grouper. YUM!

I've been passing Mr. Shrimp for years. Finally decided to give it a try for lunch. I was in the mood for no-nonsense fried seafood. I thought the food was really good. The lunch specials are a great bargain. We started with peel and eat shrimp and fried oysters. Both were fresh and very tasty. Clam chowder was just okay... More
