“Best fried chicken around”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

If you are looking for some good fried chicken, stop looking because Shrimp Boat has it. It has a wonderful crust and the chicken is juicy and tender. They also have some really good chicken livers. My mother and son were wanting them and I was told this was the place to go. They were right. They give you ample amounts of food and it is SO GOOD!!!! Of course it is not healthy so we can't go very often but when I want a great piece of fried chicken or some fried shrimp or they want the chicken livers, Shrimp Boat is the place to go!

“Fried Shrimp and chicken”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

It's OK if you are looking for fried shrimp or fish or chicken with biscuits and coleslaw. Simple fare, prepared in straight forward fashion

“Great Chicken”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

So juicy, you'd think it was leaking.

I'm not sure how they get the chicken this juicy but it is wonderful. Served extremely hot.

Great chicken.
