My husband opted for the sour cream and chives fries as his side and I chose the cole slaw. First and foremost the Reuben... More

Lunch & drinks along River St...a nice break from shopping & walking. Our drinks were very good. Lunch was ok. My husband had the flounder and said it was a bit overfried. My shrimp & grits was fresh but not at all spicy (which is what I've come to expect). This had maple bacon and it was a completely different... More

Although some of the meals were maybe a bit over priced for what they were...i had the stuffed shrimp and they were INCREDIBLE. plus it came with bread and a caeser salad so there was no need for appetisers. Yummy.

So excited to try the Shrimp factory. On the river, looks nice. Our food was not good and should have gone elsewhere. I ordered the shrimp fry. The plate was mostly french fries which were not even warm, 5 shrimp, and hush puppies that were burnt. The shrimp cocktail was frozen in a cup they gave me. Gross! Others had... More

While on the Old Town Trolly tour we decided to get off at River Street for lunch. We had seen advertisements for the Shrimp Factory and it looked like it would be a really good place for some fresh shrimp. We had a coupon for a free shrimp cocktail with the purchase of two entrees. Our server told us they... More
