One word delicious. Seafood, beef and sides there's something for everyone. I couldn't believe how great everything tasted. Service was timely and friendly and the food was plentiful. The views of the marina were beautiful. I would definitely return.

This place had surprisingly reasonable prices given the location on the marina. Unfortunately the namesake dish, killer shrimp, wasn't anything spectacular. On the other hand, shrimp cocktail was very good, steaks and chops looked fantastic and received rave reviews from my dining companions. Service was very good and the restaurant itself was beautiful. I would return here but probably order... More

Expected killer shrimp got saucy frozen shrimp. Portions are big but not yummy. Being it was right on the water, and it's name, I thought we would be getting fresh prawns just out of the water but they tasted like they were just out of the freezer.

Food was ok, seemed like everything was made quickly. I had the Pasta/Shrimp and when I say it was swimming in broth I mean it. Way too soupy for a pasta/seafood dish. Spiced hot. I read the previous trip advisor reviews before we went. Based on my experience, we won't be back. Average at best.

Great service, reasonable prices, very good food. My wife and I each had the killer shrimp. Spicy but not too hot. They provide a huge basket of bread to dip in the shrimp sauce. Meal comes with a side of rice or pasta. Oh, try the giant chocolate chip cookie desert. It's delicious!

A great location for this Marina Del Rey restaurant. Fun dishes, good variety, and moderate pricing. The menu is broad enough to satisfy most dinners. The attentive help is always there for you and works very hard to make sure each and every dinner is well served. They deserve great tips for their service and disciplined work. I've always been...

We're British so we know our fish and chips and when you're a northerner Harry Ramsden's takes some beating BUT we did it with Killer Shrimp. Absolutely fantastic food, great staff, reasonably priced and also in a great location. If you can (and it's a nice day) get a table overlooking the harbour, it's so calming. All in all a... More

Their menu seemed extensive. Taste was average. Service was prompt and friendly. Ambiance was of a bar/night club with servers in workout attire. Location was perfectly set on a marina with waterview and even sunset. Pricing is in the $$ range. If my description fits your liking, you'll love it, otherwise it'll be one time dining event. Be your own... More

Had dinner evening of the 28th. The restaurant was quite busy so we sat in the bar. We both had the chowder which was good and the Killer Shrimp original and the one with Lobster and corn. We both agreed there was nothing special about the dish and I was disappointed in the broth. I have no idea about the... More

My brother and sister in law and friends and myself visited this fine establishment. The atmosphere was nice. We walked in and we're seated right away. The servers were attentive and friendly.
