Stumbled across this quaint local delight while taking my wife for her birthday dinner. The atmosphere was nautical and the view over the inlet and the local fishing ships added to the experience. The service was delightful, in spite of a wedding celebration happening there as well. The food was well portioned, as described and reasonable. I would recommend this... More

Don't know why the locals seem to pack themselves into this place. The parking situation is horrendous, that alone can take quite some time. It took our entrées almost 45 minutes to arrive on a Tuesday night. The place is so loud that it's hard to hear the person right next to you. On top of that they squeeze you... More

My sister and I took my mom out for lunch for an early birthday celebration! It was wonderful. Mom got the coconut shrimp appetizer which she loved. My sister got a bowl of the French onion soup which she also enjoyed. I was able to get just a plate of the seaweed salad, that typically comes with the tuna appetizer,... More

We visited the Shrimp Box Outside patio this past week on our vacation to Point Pleasant, the menu was perfect and the view was amazing it felt like we were on a boat having dinner. Great food and prices were excellent. We will be back again that's for sure!

Definitely a great location. I enjoyed sitting "outside the box" looking at the fishing boats pass by. Our server Erin was very personable and attentive. She was a definite plus to our experience. The beer was cold and the raw bar was good with fresh tasting options. It's when the tried to cook it is where things started to go... More

First time visit. The Outside Bar had a nice view and good selection of drinks. Had dinner inside. The salad bar could use some improvement but the appetizers and entrees were delicious. Everything was very nicely cooked. Loved the New England Clam Chowder! Tried it due to the rating on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. Will eat there again when... More

We enjoyed an excellent dinner with family at the Shrimp Box. The seafood menu is extensive and the seven of us each enjoyed a different dish. The seafood was obviously fresh and well prepared and the portions large. Our server was friendly, cheerful, and spot on in all regards. We'll be returning today for lunch with old friends.

Been going here for the last couple of years. The food is ALWAYS good. The staff is super friendly. We sat outside on the patio with a beautiful breeze. We could have stayed there all night. Great time and very good food!
