Killer Shrimp - MDR
I came here for my sister’s birthday. The food was great and has great views of the marina. Our server was also great. This was my fifth time coming here, I’ll definitely be back.
This was my 3rd trip to KS, I never had any issues until this time. Fortunately, the only issue we had was with them bringing out our food cold. My fries were hard and cold, 2 of my guest had to return their mashed potatoes because they were cold. My beer battered fried fish came to the table soggy. Overall our dining experience was great because of our waitress, we loved her and left her a hefty tip on a $430 bill!!! We were celebrating my Daughter’s 23rd Birthday with 10 guest. She enjoyed herself and that’s all that mattered!!
Happy Hour/Dining Policy 👎🏾 Unable to order drinks from Dining table. Some Food arrived cold (mashed potatoes that came with short rib x3)They did replace them.
Food came out at differing times. Fish couldn't be cut with a knife. Several items on menu weren't available. Found out after waiting awhile that filet mignon steak wasn't available. Fish was replacement and was to be served without sauce, came with sauce, was replaced with no sauce version. Many minutes later the person who ordered mac &cheese was served. Multiple tries to find a bottle of wine that was actually in stock yielded an offer of one for several hundred dollars. Bartender found a red wine not on menu. They forgot to bring the white wine altogether. When we complained to the manager about the food, etc. she said "well you ate it" while all six of us were sitting there with mostly full plates. She offered free dessert, but we declined. Finally settled for paying 50%. No apology was offered except by the poor waitress stuck in the middle.
service a little slow and noise level made it hard to hear conversation at our table. Food was great. Love the shrimp.
I ordered the Shrimp and Lobster tail. It was delicious with lots of shrimp and a nice size lobster tail.
Food was great but the waiter was horrible. He got the order wrong and was late in bringing drinks. Had to ask for water and when he poured it, he overflowed it and spilled all over my leg. Didn’t apologize or tried to clean the spill on the floor. It wasn’t my first time there and actually took friends however, the waiter left a real bad impression on them and I will not be going back anytime soon.
Great Food Fast Service Food Nice and Hot The Killer Margaritas Where Great
A little noisy and hard to talk to each other, but food is always superb. My favorite place to come formy birthday dinner. 😄😍👍
As good as the prior visit, which was my first.
We come here a few times and this time customer service did not meet expectation.
Met my friends there for New Years, first time going. The location and area is a 5 star but everything else is 2 or below. Food was average, had a party of 11 the server missed at least 2 orders while everybody else’s food came out. When we asked for a manager the manager asked, how late was the food? Lol should it be late at all? Great location how ever. Service and Food ehhhh
Celebrated a good friend’s birthday with a group and everything was perfect! Great ocean views and delicious food. What more can you ask for?
It was nice and the food was great
We usually go during the week and its very relaxed and enjoyable with great service. This last visit we went on a Friday night and it was very crowded and loud! Service was ok. We were very uncomfortable when they seated 2 ladies with dogs right by us (inside). The dogs were not tame and shaking their fur everywhere constantly. It was disgusting and we all lost our appetite. Service dogs do not behave the way these dogs did. Shame on them.
The food and margaritas were delicious, the service could use a little help!!!!
Went here to have a celebration and totally disappointed. They said they would do a nice dessert and something special. But instead they asked me to pick a dessert from the menu brought it dropped it on the table no candle and 4 spoons for a party of 8. Never got water or drink refills. Very disappointed.
We went to Killer Shrimp on Thursday night. It wasn't very crowded. The hosts were great! Very nice and accommodating. WE sat at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Bar service was a little slow but friendly. Once we were seated, we were served by Marcus. Very nice guy. Helped us pick out some things n the menu that he thought were particularly good.
We got the killer shrimp original, it was so good! My favorite restaurant.
Came to see my sons and meet my newest f
Nice location, but much too noisy to hear your own table mates. Was a fan of the old-original Killer Shrimp but now it appears to be a much more watered down version of the original shrimp and bread.
Really wonderful staff in the Killer Cafe next door.
The food did not disappoint as far as the killer shrimp bowls with or without pasta. As good as I remembered! Lobster was delicious too. A bit loud but overall great time.
Great location on the water. View from inside tables also. Spacious table setup. Very friendly hostess, attentive and professional waitress, quick food service. The shelled shrimp bowl with French bread was wonderful. So glad we made the trek from the valley!
Was busy, with noisy customers. Waitress messed up our order twice, our entrees were served 15minutes after the rest of our table. The table was messy and near the waiter stand.
Everyone at the table for their food and my son’s meal was not. We waited and 10 min passed so I finally hailed the waitress to the table and she was nonchalant about it but said she would ask in the kitchen. I followed her with my eyes and instead of going to ask, she went to another table. I waited another 10 minutes (by then everyone was almost finished) and I went and talked to the manager and told him what was going on. He apologized and finally his food was brought out. When the waitress brought the check, i asked her about my son’s plate should be complementary because of what happened and she had an attitude but the discount was approved. Overall, I couldn’t even enjoy my own meal because of what happened so even if they took his meal off the check it never took the sour taste off my mouth.
Can't say I would or i wouldn't recommend Killer Shrimp. Food was pretty good and view of the Marina was nice. Service was spotty at best and noise level was uncomfortably loud.
Service was very slow and food not up to par. What made me mad though was they charged 4.00 for a children’s lemonade that was half water.
Not family friendly
The server that we had for the night was more focused on holding conversation with his other coworkers. He was not attentive to our table and his service was horrible. He also had a bad attitude.
Great place on the water.. fun atmosphere in the bar area and great drinks and food.
Great food, great flavor. Fun atmosphere. Service was ok.
Great food! Service could have been better. One from our group of six had a meal forgotten. Server didn’t check on us until we were more than halfway done to offer spoons for our shrimp broth. Everyone as pleasant enough though. I’ll come back for sure
Hospitality was very bad, we where invited by some friends, when we arrived our table was not ready, finally they gave us a table for 6 persons, the reservation was made for 7 so there was not enough space. The manager tried to blame me because I would have said that we where with 5...
After some heavy discussions I dicided with the manager at my side to book a new table for 7, just 5 minutes later. I said :”We’ll wait 5 minutes and then you have a new table for us, just go and check your reservation” he became angry and gave us directly a new table.
Some hours later I got an email which said that I didn’t showed up on my reservation... what a chaos...
The food was ok but the noise and music whas much too loud, we couldn’t talk, pricing was also not worth for what we paid and they forgot one dessert, which we never had ...
So never again and I wouldn’t recommend this place
They still made us wait standing up after a long day at work
We arrived early for our reservation but were welcomed to relax at a table in the bar. Our server was very slow to arrive, but we ordered drinks and received them with only a moderate wait. We were seated in the dining room but again, waited a long time (20 minutes) for a server to arrive. We finally stopped a server who was passing by who went off to find our server. Apparently our server left the premises and no one was assigned to take his place. The server we had summoned was apologetic and took our order. We received our food within a decent time frame, but no one checked to see if our food was ok. My side (broccoli) was never delivered, but we weren’t charged for it, so I guess it didn’t matter. Our food was very good.but the room was very noisy. Dinner conversation was nearly impossible. We would like to return but wish for more reliable service.
Always amazing! Delicious food, great service. Worth the drive from the Valley and they never disappoint.
Wish we could have been seated sooner. Waited until 11 out of 14 of our party. A little late in getting our drinks. Soup came out before the server finished taking everyones' order.
I decided to host my birthday dinner at this restaurant. We were a total party of 8. I ordered cup of lobster bisque and I only could find 2 very small pieces of lobster meat. I was underwhelmed. When all of the entrees came out, mine was nowhere to be found. They had mistakenly brought a completely different entree! I told them what I ordered and sat patiently for mine as the rest of my party began to eat. My main entree was supposed to be scallops. When they finally brought my dish, I began eating the very white scallops (undercooked) and started biting on very hard non-edible pieces. They did not clean the scallops properly and left dirt from the shell on the scallop. I complained to the server and they refired 3 of the 6 scallops in my dish as I had already eaten them because I was starving. So then they brought out 3 beautifully browned scallops with no dirt on them. Now why couldn't I have received that 30 minutes prior with the rest of the 7 entrees ordered? Definitely disappointed and underwhelmed. I will NOT be returning.
Family birthday brunch. Super fast service, great food! Lobster Mac N Cheese always a hit! One of my favorite restaurants, I always recommend to friends and family.
The one hiccup was that I made a reservation for 930 after college graduation. Don't recall seeing the dining area closes at 10p so when got there one time thr hostess initially sent us to be seated in the Happy Hour section instead of the restaurant. We had to request to be placed in the restaurant. Felt like "we about to shut it down so we not placing you in the dining area." We had been there bf when visiting from Ga. and wanted a good experience for others who had not been before. Once seated, Rico made up for the initial experience. Service was welcoming and great.
