Perfect place to take kids. The view is great, food a bit better than average and no one will notice your kids screaming because they will be drowned out by other noise. Service is friendly and good. Have the bridled "catch of the day." Reservations a must.

Large seafood menu with salad bar option for entrees. Indoor & outdoor dining. Shrimp oddly is a minority option on the menu, fish takes the priority.

Food was very good. If you have six or more people, you can get a reservation. It is really helpful as the wait can be very, very long. Wait staff was excellent. My only complaints were that there weren't many vegetable options on the salad bar and the food could have come quicker. Perhaps it is the kind of place... More

We just finished eating at the shrimp box. We had reservations for 7 o'clock and we had to wait over a half hour. The food was OK. my dinner was overcooked. The mussels were bland and the salad bar was not great. If you're looking for a good restaurant...I definitely do not recommend this place.

Quite busy in summer with long waits but food is pretty good. Best to go for the early birds till 6p when price is right. Its right where the boats come in with their catch of the day.

We've been to this restaurant several times while in Pt. Pleasant, NJ. Other than sometimes having to wait to park and dine (they have multiple lots due to popularity), we've always had a good seafood meal at a reasonable price. Salad bar included with most meals.

Located on the pt pleasant inlet this restaurant offers interesting views of the fishing boats that call pt pleasant home. I have never had a bad meal there and the accompanying salad bar is very good. Service is very attentive and friendly.

We stopped at the Shrimp Box for lunch and totally enjoyed it! We sat outside on the deck (porch) and watched the various types of boats go by! My husband had a shrimp cocktail, 6 large shrimp, and I had the shrimp salad on pita bread! Both were delicious. Even the fries were extra crisp and yummy! It was the... More
