We recently visited Schlitterbahn Waterpark for the day and enjoyed the Shrimp Haus for dinner. We ordered the crab cakes, and they prepared them just the way I like them-nice and crispy on the outside. We split the Triple Shrimp, and I liked all three- fried, coconut, and pecan crusted. It was served with roasted red potatoes and steamed vegetables.... More

We had dinner at Shrimp Haus our last night at our stay in South Padre Island. The food was good but I must say the service was very very slow, so do not plan on being in a big hurry there. They have a really good salad bar. Everyone seemed to be happy with the food they got. If it... More

We should have known when the parking lot was empty. This park is very run down and deserted. Our meal was bad, really bad! I orderd the suf and turf. I ordered my steak medium well. When they served my plate there was blood running out of my steak. I immediately sent it back. After a wait, it was brought... More

You can see why this place is rated 33 out of all the restaurants on the Island. It is located at the Schlitterbahn Water Park. A VERY Run down dump of a place. Personally, I think the entire place needs to be closed down. As for the Shrimp Haus, it is located on the second floor of one of their... More

Jeff T, I am disappointed to hear your experience is not what the overwhelming majority of our visitors have and continue to experience. With nearly a dozen ingredients provided, including salsa, for just $8.99 (all you can eat), most visitors and locals have commented that they hope we continue this new tradition. Our restaurant, which overlooks both the beach and... More

Enjoyed my second meal here tonight while at SPI and the beer battered shrimp was excellent! As was Hector Guzman the guitarist who played discreetly in the background without overpowering his listeners who wished to converse with their dinner companions! A totally wonderful dining and listening experience!!

Came here for dinner tonight. I had pecan crusted shrimp and my husband had grilled shrimp. Both were served with fresh cooked green beans mixed with some cauliflower, carrots and broccoli..also had some baby red potatoes plus salad bar. Very good dinner. Will definitely return.

Mike B, Manager at Shrimp Haus, responded to this review

Kim G, We appreciate the kind words and glad to hear how much you appreciated one or our signature dishes. The pecan crusted is definitely one of our most popular and if you enjoyed it, next time may I suggest either the coconut shrimp or chicken fried shrimp. Thanks again and see you soon, Mike More
