My wife and I visit the Shrimp Box at least 2 times a month while they are open. We have been doing this for almost the past 10 years. We just love everything about this place and are treated just like family. Keep up the great job and we can't wait to see you guys on March 1 !!!!

We went here about two weeks ago right after they reopened. This was our first visit. It's been very talked up so we've been wanting to try it. We got there on a Wednesday afternoon and it was packed. We waited for about a half hour to get a table. Service was busy but still very nice. Our food came... More

It is my birthday and I wanted to go someplace different and wanted to be on the water. I have heard from a few people about how good it was at The Shrimp Box and decided that is where I wanted to go. My husband and I both ordered off the sunset dinner menu. We had the salad bar, our... More

Went down the shore and stopped by The Shrimp Box for an early dinner. Service was excellent and so was the food. We had the stuffed shrimp and the broiled seafood trio. Both were delicious.

The seafood is varied but always reliable. Broiled, grilled or fried fresh fish, shrimp, clams or great raw bar. Outside seating in season, we prefer inside, a/c in summer. They have a sunset menu, salad bar or soup, entree with sides, dessert and coffee. I felt like I was dining with my parents, but that's ok sometime. Good service all... More

Our first time there. We stopped by for lunch. We shared the 1/2 lobster and fried clams and oysters lunch specials. Both meals included salad bar, beverage and dessert. Everything was very good. The prices are quite reasonable too. Our waitress Blake was very friendly and professional. Since we were there off season parking was easy and there was no... More

My wife and I just had dinner at the Shrimp Box in Point Pleasant, NJ. It really couldn't have been much better! Thanks to the hostess, we were lucky enough to get an inside booth along the windows facing the inlet, just as the sun was setting. Our food was excellent... I had the seafood trio and wife had the... More
