“Pass on this place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Disappointed in quality of food . Shrimp were gritty. Ordered stuffed shrip which were small and the shrip had a fishy tasting crab stuffing placed on top of each shrimp. Not stuffed at all . Poor fishy flavor and like I mentioned gritty. Disappointed, later we mentioned this place to locals they definitely would not reccommended .

“Expensive, cheaper options farther down River Street”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

The food here was great...no doubt about it. I got the Shrimp and Grits, my husband went on and on about his crab bisque, I gorged on the large drink that is served there (as well as in other places). We were fat and happy, until the bill came. I cried a bit when I signed my name to that bill. It was expensive. I cried even more the next night when I ate at a nearby seafood joint for cheaper and the food was better!

“Under new ownership & management”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

The Shrimp Factory has been bought out by new owners and quickly being returned to its former glory. Most of the waitstaff and management team have been replaced. The menu has been updated and the bar has been refurbished. Try an Artillery Punch and the Deviled Crab, delicious!

“scrumptious crab cakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

With so many eateries to choose from along River Street, we hardly knew which one to have lunch at. Then we saw the blackboard outside Shrimp Factory, announcing their crab cake special. We were sold. The crab cakes tasted fresh and were delicately seasoned, served with rice and peas. It was a memorable lunch that both my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed.
