Cannot beat Shipp's for consistently good fresh food with a great view. Great fried oysters and shrimp

We were told that they have great food at good prices. I was not impressed by the service or food. The salad was very plain with loose leaf lettuce and 2 tiny tomatoes and the fish I got was plain and had no taste. We will not be going back there to eat any time soon for the price it... More

Vacationing family of nine visited Shipps with reservations. Upon arrival we were lead to a table for six, oops. We had to wait 30 minutes for a properly sized table for our group. The service was good from our server but the kitchen was backed up and dinner was delayed by 45 minutes. Apps were great, wine was good and... More

I went with the grouper ponchatrain which was ok, but the blackened swordfish special was EXCELLENT! It was the special, cooked perfectly, not dry or tough. Another in our party had a filet which was very good too, but the swordfish!!!!! I hope it's back on next week too!

We had reservations for 7 on Father's Day, and were seated promptly. The restaurant is located on the bay, and the view from the dock is just beautiful. Shipp's had catered a party we attended the night before, and we all couldn't wait to have more of their delicious food. The crab rangoons are the best I've ever eaten--perfect in... More

We've been coming to this area for over 25 years and never been to this restaurant. Food and service were both excellent. We plan to go back next year. Dress is casual, but you might want to make a reservation.

The best part of this restaurant are the views of the water. The hostess was on the phone when we walked in, looking for our group. She had time to tell us that the other hostess/waitress would be back to help us and then just sat there, not talking, on the phone. We asked her to just point us in... More

Shipps has the best menu and food! Good location in a marina, so pretty views of different boats! Our server, Mark, was great! We were able to make reservations ahead of time, so we really enjoyed not having to wait! All of our group loved the food -crab dip, shrimp appetizer, sushi, steak, turtle soup, grouper, mashed potatoes- everything was... More
