We always eat on their outside deck called "Outside of the Box". Service is always good as is the food. My last visit was meeting some friends for lunch. I had a spinach salad with grilled shrimp. Very good! I've had various fish entrees here as well and it has always been very good. One of our favorite restaurants to... More

Stopped in for late lunch in the fall after not being able to get in during the summer as there was always people waiting outside. We were not disappointed. Had a nice table by the window and got to look out at the working docks across the water. Food was enjoyable as always. Love their salad bar.

The wait in the main restaurant was very long, but we were able to have immediate seating at the patio...although the menu was a bit different, it was a beautiful August evening, so why not site outside??? Sitting outside by itself... More

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.
