Been here a few times and never disapointed. Always look up Peggy and the rest of the staff are just as friendly. Get the chicken better than mom's. Husband gets the pork chop. Never greasy and the coating the best. Someday I am really going to try the shrimp.

This is my favorite place to get fried chicken. We dont eat it often but if I have a choice, this is my go to place. The chicken is always crispy and juicy without being too greasy. Their dinners are served with frys that are alright. But what really compliments the chicken is the slaw and dinner roll. Just good... More

My son and I went during the week to have lunch. We heard great things about Shrimp Boat. The place was very busy. This is a walk in wait on line, order, pick a table and wait for your order type of place. You cannot get a drink, silverware or condiments without the waitstaff.As far as I could tell, there...

I came here to have fried chicken as per a recommendation from a person at work. I was very happy with my restaurant selection. This is a no frills place, but I got exactly what I wanted - very good fried chicken. I will return here someday if I am in the area again. Staff was friendly and very nice.

We went hoping for some good shrimp. But it was frozen and fried hard. Very disappointed. The people serving us told us they were known for their fried chicken

I recently saw an article about the best restaurants in South Carolina and I saw a review for this restaurant. It must be 10 minutes away from our home and we were very excited to try it out. It's small, you order when you walk in and then find a seat and they bring it to you. This works for... More

Okay so I was looking for a good seafood restaurant after a fashion show fitting in the area. Most were closed but came across this one. Great reviews... Umm what were they thinking when they submitted all of this good feedback?? The place was a raunchy dump! My poor mom used the bathroom and compared it to an outhouse! The... More

Well for me the food is not all that good. Most of the people from Rock Hill, SC like it but this is one place I'll skip over

We like Shrimp Boat. Their fried chicken is what attracts locals and they have a very good business. I got the Chuckwagon Sandwich and it was very good. The fries and cole slaw were very good as well. You order at the counter when you arrive and pay when you order. The place is nothing fancy and probably qualifies for... More

This "fish camp" is a hidden gem of you like traditional fried chicken, hush puppies and onion rings. The onion rings are done with sweet vidalia onions and corn meal and are too die for. The hush puppies are not the sweeter kind but are great. The chicken is the best. Most blue collar restaurants are a bit segregated, not... More
