Shrimp, and more shrimp. The other items on the menu were mostly unavailable. But we did come for shrimp and the shrimp were available in multitudinous servings. We had shrimp cocktail as an appetizer and the shrimp alfredo and were not disappointed.

Coconut shrimp are really good. That's the good news. It takes 45 minutes to an hour to get the food though. Enjoy the location and free WiFi while you wait.

ACES staff will be happy to educate you on the importance of the preservation of these threatened and protected animals. By participating in this educational tour you are directly contributing to ACES efforts to protect an endangered species.After this much excitement enjoy some of the best food and beverages Belize has to offer at “Captain Hook’s Shrimp Restaurant and Croc Lounge.” Cool off, relax, and experience the freshest shrimp you will ever eat.
