One of my favorite things about visiting the shore is enjoying fresh seafood. I am not a seafood freak, but I do appreciate it now and again ... especially when it is FRESH and when it is fried. Mr Shrimp offered both! (For healthier eaters, rest assured that you get a choice on preparation styles!). My husband and I ate... More

We've loved Mr.Shrimp for years! This is our go to place especially if we have people visiting us at our beach home. Highly recommend the Alaskan King Crab legs. I often find myself craving their amazing crab dip! The only downside is the chairs at this restaurant are hard and not very comfortable. This place is always packed I'm sure... More

bought fish here to cook at home. Good selection of very fresh fish and fair prices. Returned to try the restaurant a few days later. Probably the best value lobster roll any where within 100 miles. Lots of lobster meat (the menu has it as a wrap but they'll put it on a nice roll for the same $15.95). Really... More

Lobster bisque had no flavor,or lobster. Chowder, the same...kinda like mystery soup. Entree' s were good , steak,seafood combo, shrimp parm..was excellent. Service a bit confusing, but attentive. Busy restaurant, BYOB, would probably go back, but not order the soup.

Mr. Shrimp is a not only an excellent fish store, but an amazing resturant. It is a BYOB. My husband and I went to Mr. Shrimp on a Sunday night. We only had to wait a little while for a table in the dining room. We could have been seated immediately in the outer room, in the store side. The... More

The food was nice, but the wait at the table was loooong. We didn't have reservations, but were lucky to go before it's super crowded so we got a table right away.

This restaurant came highly recommended. It was an excellent experience. It is a very popular restaurant, very busy, BYOB. The portions are generous and the food is fresh and prepared perfectly. The king crab legs were incredible and my husbands salmon excellent. Staff is very good, but very busy. Can't wait to go back.

They do a great job with the basic fish and shellfish but I personally can't get enough of their specials! I have never been disappointed! My only wish is for more comfortable chairs but then I might never leave!

They always have the freshest seafood. Pickup can be a long wait but worth it. It's a BYOB restaurant. Eating in this restaurant is nice, but it can get crowded.
