“A very good seafood restaurant”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have been there for dinner and lunch. Both times was very pleasant although my family and I waited over an hours for dinner. They are very busy during summer season for dinner. Lunch no problem, plenty of available tables. I would have to say if you want to try this restaurant, try it for lunch. We had the shrimp quesadilla, very good grilled tasting shrimps with burst of tomatoes and cheese; fish tacos with deep fried tilapia and lots of fixings. lobster wrap that was very tasty and popcorn shrimp that has nice size shrimps. And for appetizer we had the fried Ipswich which was fantastic!

“Freshest Seafood”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Mr Shrimp may not have the waterfront location but they certainly have the right 'out of the ocean' freshest seafood. Great recipes and specialties that will surprise you. From salmon to shellfish they know how to cook it. With a hands on owner, they also recognize any mistakes in preparation and make up for them in the right way. At times it can get noisy, but its a locals' favorite.

“Best fresh fish”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Usually eat in the restaurant but had some company recently and decided to get some take out and cook some other side items.
Great shrimp and salmon and cole slaw but the calamari was a little greasy

“Decent but painfully noisy”
Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

My husband & I came here for some lobster & although service was good, lobster was dry & gritty. Noise was so loud, we could not enjoy our dinner. Will never go back

“"Really Fresh Seafood and Great Service."”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Whenever we are in the mood for seafood we go to Mr. Shrimp. The owner Vincent is always around making sure everyone is totally satisfied with their food and service. We consistently enjoy all the selections particularly the steamers, that are steamed with fresh celery. When you arrive to the restaurant you can look into the seafood market and see what looks good to you. You can then tell your waitress if you want aparticular type of fish that is in the market section. They have a BYOB policy so you can bring your own spitits. The soda's are bottomless which is one of my favorite offerings given by only the BETTER restaurants. (I really hate going to a restaurant that charges you by the glass of soda.for more than one.) If you want really good seafood this is the place for YOU !!!
