Fried Shrimp Sandwich

I only came here to eat the fried shrimp sandwich. I think I will be coming back because it was pretty darn good! The service was friendly but the restaurant needs a makeover.

Positives, it had seafood and was quiet. Overall nothing to write about. Negatives: Basic, unexciting. Salad was iceburg and a couple cucumbers. The fried fish was okay. It was very dated inside to the point that it made it a "do not return" experience.

Nothing fancy here, just our go-to place for a local seafood restaurant. Seafood is prepared simply. Crab cakes are a great value and always what my husband orders. I wish they would change up their sides a bit however, and the veggies are overcooked and mushy, which is not how I like my veggies. The interior I would agree is... More

This gem is family run . . . and it's a Greek family, so you know the food is going to be excellent. They have a wonderful restaurant where all their fresh seafood is prepared to your taste: baked or broiled. Portions are very large and freshness is the order of the day. They also sell fresh seafood for you... More

Fresh well cooked seafood at a great price. Family owned and ran. Fried seafood combo is for someone with a big appetite. Nothing fancy

This is a family run restaurant. I have only been there for a sandwich and it was pretty good. They do serve dinner as well as lunch at a reasonable price.

I don't know what some of the other reviewers were talking about, this place is a gem! Yes the crowd is mostly senior citizens, but all good foodies know that seniors and cops are the mark of good food at a great value! Anyway, I agree with the assessment of the NE Clam Chowder but the rest of the seafood... More

Very dissatisfied. The New England clam chowder was green/brown. The bucket of steamed clams were so tiny. The place smells like a dirty attic. They were vacuuming and cleaning ceiling tiles a few feet away from the uncovered dessert and while serving food. Thoughtless!

We have been going to Shrimp King ever since they opened in Hamilton a lot of years ago.It has become our GO TO joint-and it is a joint-for a decent, affordable seafood dinner. The cooking here is not astounding. There is no spectacular wow dish or amazingly complicated preparation. Just very fresh and good seafood prepared very well. The prices... More
