“Great stop after Assateague”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Great casual dining stop on the way back from Assateague, and by casual I mean swimsuits. Heavy, sweet male crabs and the best sauteed soft shell crabs. The shrimp is awesome, but the soft shelled crab is mind blowing.

“Great Food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

First time visiting the Shrimp Boat & certainly will not be the last time! Ordered a dozen medium crabs...only $24! They were more like larges! Very heavy & mustardy. Also ordered cream of crab soup which was very thick & full of crab meat. Will be going back tomorrow as well :) Very nice staff.

“Great food. Ideal beach eats.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

Stopped on a lark and were pleasantly surprised. Setting was great. Causal, open. We had crab cakes and oyster po'boy. I'm from New Orleans so I know a good po'boy. Theirs was great. The bread makes all the difference. Smith island cake made the meal...though where we come from we call them doberge cakes! Would definitely eat here again.

“Outstanding casual place, will not disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

We went here based on the reviews and none were disappointed. Excellent food and super friendly service. In our party we had the fish and chips, grilled yellow fin tuna, crabcakes, and I had the best shrimp tacos. We liked it so much we went back two days later. One of my new favorite places!!!!

“Excellent food, service and price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Family of four stopped for dinner on the way to Ocean City. Met by the owner, a very knowledgeable shrimp boat captain, who promptly offered us samples of his fresh caught shrimp. It was amazing! We were met by our server who patiently expalined the menu and tended to us through the entire meal. Ordered two dozen steamed crabs, a crab cake, an order of the fresh caught shrimp and the seafood gumbo. You could tell the crabs were very fresh as they were all very solid and had hard shells all for a reasonable price. Washed up at a convienient handwash station, not the bathroom and no moist towelettes! Wonderful experience. You can also carry out your orders!
