Excellent service in a supremely located restaurant. We could sit outside and enjoy views and the most excellent seafood (shrimp and lobster).

love the atmosphere and food ! The service was excellent and the food was great. I loved being able to sit outside overlooking the marina. It was a little chilly but the waiter tuned on the heat lamps and made it nice and toasty. I don't usually like spicy food but the signature dish is a must try. A great... More

I was staying across the street at the Marriott and looking for quick casual dinner at 9pm on a Tuesday night. Killer Shrimp is open until midnight so I walked to the restaurant. I ordered one of the signature killer shrimp dish as an appetizer. The shrimp are cooked in a spicy broth and served with bread to soak the... More

If you like shrimp, Killer Shrimp is a must. Not too many options, but who needs options when Shrimp is on the menu. Large portions. Really enjoyed it.

This is a bustling place with a menu a mile long. Great fun getting hands on with the shrimp gumbo. No airs and graces here. The food was full flavour and service excellent. Fantastic overlooking the marina.

This restaurant was recommended by friends. Spotty service. Got our order wrong twice, but did correct it. Half the menu had their signature Killer shrimp which was extremely spicy as was the Bloody Mary I ordered. I couldn't finish it.

Friendly and accommodating staff, several halls to choose from (inside/outside, noisy with TV sport channels or more quiet for family dinner). I'm not fan of it's killer shrimp signature dish, their fried shrimps are better in my opinion.

Moved to the Marina del Rey area in August. Went to The Killer Shrimp Cafe because it was close. The food is good and if you are in the MDR area I recommend that you try it. Good portions for the price. Friendly staff and great Marina view

My husband and I went to this restaurant out of curiosity for its name. We figured that the shrimps here would be yummy! Far from it - the main shrimp dish of this restaurant is just a bunch of cooked shrimps in a broth type liquid with some mild spices thrown in. No clever twist, no flavorful burst of taste... More
