We enjoyed our family visit to the Shrimp Haus. There were very few patrons there since we came off season and we received impeccable service. My husband and I both had the ribeye with blackened shrimp. The steak was very tough, I've had much better for a less expensive price. But the Shrimp was DIVINE. So good. And the loaded... More

Season73, Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed yourselves. While we are best known for our dozens of shrimp options (and Island's best margaritas), I am disappointed that your steak was not up to our usual standards. Our entry boardwalk does contain a pond with several variety of fish and turtles but I can't take any credit for the... More

We arrived about 7pm and asked for an outside table(restaurant was slow with only 4 tables occupied). Hostess said they were closing the outdoor seating, but agreed to seat us when she overheard us discussing going somewhere else. Why they didn't want to utilize outside i don't know because it provided an nice view of the gulf looking over the... More

Restaurant was large and located above a water park. Live music was performed as we ate. Food was decent nothing special, (steak was not cooked to specification) a little on the pricier side for average eats. Service was ok. It did have a nice wood platform which walked out to a section of beach.

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

Elizabeth R, We appreciate you dining with us and am disappointed we did not meet your expectations and hopefully you allowed us to correct the temperature you wanted your steak cooked at. As a separate restaurant that is open year-round, the Shrimp Haus provides a very diverse menu with some great views of both the waterpark and the Gulf of... More

The Shrimp Haus offered wonderful food. We were very happy with the portions and the taste. The only negative is you are given one trip to the Salad Bar with a tiny plate. We ordered all you can eat coconut shrimp and the shrimp were huge and tasted great! Our waitress was very good! We ate her twice on our... More

Great food and friendly service. All our food was delicious and I would definitely go there again. It's inside the water park.

Conveniently located next to the waterpark, the Shrimp Haus is a restaurant to itself, open year round at 11am and featuring fresh, local caught shrimp plus dozens of other dishes in a family friendly atmosphere overlooking the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.

My wife and I renewed our vows at Schlitterbahn and asked to have dinner at the Shrimp Haus. I was expecting a reserved table, which was not something they normally do. What I got was a reserved table for 9, table linens, flowers/decorations, the manager coming out to greet us, the one band band acknowledging us (several times), and that... More

We really enjoyed our meal here, and our server was great! On the deck, you can watch people trying out the Boogie Bahn, which is very entertaining. The staff was very friendly & attentive, and my husband said that was some of the best shrimp he has ever had!

First time at the Shrimp Haus, not overly impressed with the food.Ordered the fried cat fish, more breading than fish. Not seasoned, extremely bland. My wife had the all you can eat shrimp, said the same thing about seasoning. We definitely won't be making a return visit.

Peter D, Thanks for visiting but sorry to hear that our award-winning all you can eat shrimp was not as flavorful or seasoned as much as you would have desired. I certainly hope you visit again and let us know you like "extra seasoning" since we do cook to order and would be happy to comply to your request. Thanks,... More

We visited because of all the shrimp options on the menu, but sadly didn't get to enjoy anything from the menu. We left before our server ever came to our table. We had sat there for quite a while.
