Happy hour martini for $4 and a 3 course meal for $20. It was all good and we brought the extras and dessert home. Jessica, the waitress, let one in the party try a pasta sauce before ordering which helped to make a dinner decision. All in all, a wonderful visit.

Not a seafood person but the place was good had a couple options for us land lovers. The bread was the best part. Service was ok little slow on the drinks but not a bad place to go.

Food & service was great. Grits is very good! Very busy place. Love the live music. Kind of small restaurant.

Last few trips adequate but nowhere as good as it was. Crab imperial has vanished. Service good. Moderate to expensive for what you get. Certainly not bad but not as outstanding as it was.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always good and fresh. The service is always top notch. My first visit I was trying to decide between two dishes and the waiter suggested the Salmon À La Meunière. It has become my favorite dish. We always take friends and family visiting here. Check it out. You won't be... More

This is not a place I would recommend for seafood. The variety is not great and the food is pricey for what you get. The atmosphere is nice but the customer service was lacking.

I loved the ambiance, food and service. I had the crab and shrimp balls, salmon, and the peanut butter crunch pie. Very, very good! Definitely a must try!

The menu features lots of choice, you should find something you like. We went in the evening and they offer a very nice fixed menu pricing. 3 of us chose shrimp and scallops which came with a wonderful and flavorable baked potato (or other option) and included an entree, and a very nice choice of desserts....peanut butter mud pie was...

When you go to a restaurant named the Shrimp Boat Grill in Florida, you would expect them to be serving local shrimp (Florida, US, etc.). No - the shrimp was from South America - probably farm raised. I will never go there again, unless they start serving US shrimp. You cannot trust the quality of non-US, shrimp.

We have always enjoyed excellent meals at the Shrimp Boat. Start with the crab corn chowder topped with shrimp, followed by any of their delicious entries or nightly specials. Tasty Salads and desserts, too. Not just for seafood lovers--steaks and chicken are offered along with vegetarian meals. This location is much more spacious and inviting than their original spot; fortunately... More
