The Shrimp Box & Outside The Box Patio Bar Ratings and Reviews
We have been coming here for many years, and it never disappoints. Since it closes for the season in a couple of weeks, we had to get in one more time this year. We love the food, service, and ambiance. It was weird that the restaurant was not packed for once,but it was still great. Our waitress was fantastic, and we enjoyed our meal very much. I am a pain, always asking for something on the side, changing a sauce, or whatever. I always get what I want, and I have never had a problem here. They have the best salad bar too. Get here before it's too late.
One of the best sea food restaurants at the Jersey Shore. Family owned/operated for years, and the staff couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. Food is always excellent and the water view makes dining even more enjoyable. The Shrimp Box is our favorite "go to" restaurant for casual dining, special occasions, or date night.
The occasion for my visit to the Shrimp Box was to celebrate my birthday. My two best friends brought me there and I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner. In fact I had to bring some home and we'll have it tomorrow for lunch. Everything at the shrimp box including the salad bar is excellent. I try to eat on the safe side, so my order is generally a healthy one.
Disappointed with our meals today but our service was the best ever thanks to Dolores, she was on top of keeping our glasses full. To start both got Manhattan clam chowder and it was room temperature and loaded with potatoes missing the main ingredient the clams. Our captain platter was ok most of items Luke warm and the lobster tail rubbery really over cocked
Next time will try ted Lobster or back to wharfsudec
I had a crab cake lunch sandwich. The crab cake itself was the best I’ve ever tasted but the bun was stale as was the bread put on the table when we arrived. Stale bread is an absolute turn off. This has a direct negative impact on the service of this restaurant.
Love the Shrimp Box! Great meals, reasonable prices, great waitresses, and the management was great. I had made reservations and needed to change them to a later time the day of. It was no problem and our table was ready and waiting. I highly recommend The Shrimp Box!
We are up visiting in New Jersey from Florida and wanted a nice seafood restaurant, we found The Shrimp Box and are glad we did. The location is great, right on the water, the food was outstanding, and the service and staff were great. I would imagine this restaurant gets quite busy during the summer months, but the do take reservations. Great spot.
We came based on a friend's recommendation. We had come the week before and it was so crowded we figured it had to be good. It was some sort of seafood feastival weekend, therefore the crowd.
Unfortunately we fell short of our expectations. The server, Jay, was great but the food did leave a bit to be desired.
The clams casino were overstuffed and soggy. I never had stuffed clams casino before. My sister and husband had lobster bisque which they both commented that it would have been good had it not been cold. As for the entrees I will only speak of mine. I had surf and turf. I asked the filet mignon be cooked medium, it was cooked through and very dry as was the lobster. I would have understood if it was busy but it was not. There were many vacant tables all around so that wasn't the case.
Not sure I would return or recommen
