“Not a bad place”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

We had previously enjoyed the fish tacos at Castaway inside the water park. We hoped Shrimp House was the same, but they were made different. Still good, but not as good as downstairs. It was also nice to have a salad bar for a change.

Thanks for visiting and enjoying the delicious fish tacos!

Plus, with one of the biggest and freshest salad bars around overlooking the beach, you are sure to find something even if you don't want shrimp!

Thanks for visiting and commenting afterwards on your Shrimp Haus.....the shrimp did not taste frozen because we purchase all of our shrimp directly from the local shrimp boats to provide the tastiest, freshest shrimp around.

Also glad to hear you enjoyed our large, fresh salad bar and enjoyed watching the action down below at the famous Boogie Bahn inland surfing wave.

Hope you also had the opportunity to enjoy the live entertainment and the views of the Gulf and beaches with the second story views.

Hope to see you again soon!!

Thanks for your comments about your recent visit. I can see you are shrimp fans by your choosing four of our many different shrimp offerings. We also try to make sure you have a full plate too! :o)
Hope you enjoyed the great gulf view and we hope to see you again soon trying some of the other shrimp dishes or some of the many beef, chicken and salad offerings.

“Not thst great”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The menu has alot of good sounding shrimp dishes but we were very disappointed in the food my husband had Sauteed Shrimp with Cilantro and Pineapple, the shrimp was bland tasted fishy the and the vegetables had no flavor to them, the pineapple cilantro salsa was the only thing that was good on the plate. I had the Pepper Jack Cheese Stuffed Shrimp
served with garlic jalapeno cream sauce, the crust on the shrimp hard and over fried, the sauce tasted like flour paste there was no garlic or jalapeno in sauce had no flavor what so ever. This was our first time here, the two dishes we had I would not recommended they do have a salad bar that was good and it has a nice atmosphere.

I appreciate your sharing your experience at the Shrimp Haus and am pleased about your comments reagarding our large salad bar and diverse sauces. Our shrimp is the freshest around (as we buy straight from the lcoal shrimp boats!) so I am disappointed the flavor was not all it could be for you. I will share your comments with our entire staff. I wish I would have known that evening as we always want to exceed all of our Guests' expectations.

“Dirty, more casual than expected”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Ugh. Dead fish in nearly every aquarium and there are lots. Plastic outdoor furniture indoors. I could see it being fun in the summer, with music and the patio. However, I can't get past how bad the scallops and the fact my son had an unidentified object I his pizza. The place was gross when we visited.
