The food was wonderful, we had clams on the half shell, clam chowder and a seafood platter. The food was not over cooked, soup was wonderful. We ended up each taking a box of food home for lunch the next day. Service was very good. Sat by the window and could see boats coming in or going out.

We loved it here. The view speaks for itself. I wish the had the same menu as inside, but we would sit outside again. Staff were attentive and professional. No issues there. We shared an order of calamari and a Cobb salad. My husband had the garlic, shrimp and broccoli over penne. I had the cioppino. Both were really good.... More

Enjoyed my appetizerl of steamers, real steamers, and dinner of scallops. The greeting upon arrival was friendly. The wait staff were very competent and attentive. I will return to this establishment.

My wife and I had dinner at the Shrimp Box a week after Labor Day. There was a small wait for a table outside. It was well worth the wait! The view was spectacular. The waitress friendly and knowledgeable. She guided us to appetizers and entrees that best suit our taste. We enjoyed every bite while watching a beautiful sunset.

We hadn't been to The Shrimp Box in nearly 10 years - after Friday's dinner, I remember why! Nothing exceptional here - everything ordered was simply "OK" - steamers were plentiful, but far from sweet ( a few were a bit sandy), broiled stuffed lobster was slightly over-cooked (with stuffing more bread than anything else), but nonetheless eatable, and my...

after waiting 45 min for main courses to be delivered my crab cakes looked like well done hamburger patties. I pointed it out to the waitress and she did apologize and made a few excuses because they were busy, had a private affair upstairs and offered to bring them back however after such a wait and I was with 4...

The Pros: They have three parking lots . There is outside seating. Water views. Hardworking staff. The Cons: When you sit outside, you are not able to partake of the salad bar. Your entry to the restaurant must be made by walking through the parking lot, through the front door, past the bathrooms in the lobby then into the dining... More

This was my first visit. Can't believe I overlooked this place all the years that I've been staying in Point Pleasant Beach. It's exactly the type of dining experience I want at the shore. Outside patio seating was lovely. Im sure even nicer during the day. The food was good. I had the Captains Table. There was an apprx 45minute... More
