The Shrimp Box & Outside The Box Patio Bar Ratings and Reviews
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
I was somewhat disappointed. I asked to be seated at a window and was told we needed 6 for the booth. Others came in later with less and received window locations.
The food seemed to be under par for them. My clam chowder was lukewarm and the entrees were less than I remember. The service was fantastic, which is why I was puzzled about everything else.
Love the Shrimp Box. The food is fantastic, love getting a booth next to a window to watch the boats, and really enjoy their Sunset meal specials. What a great deal...your meal (which includes the salad bar or soup, potato and veggies, drink AND dessert! Service is always top notch. We have gone twice now with my elderly parents. They are very accommodating and were very willing to swap out the fish for some fried clams for my Dad! Highly recommend this place. It is always busy, probably due to its great reputation! Can't wait to go back :)
I don't get it, maybe this used to be the place to go but not anymore. It's like eating in a catering hall during the early bird special on senior citizen night. Everything was cold and not good which is harder to swallow because it's not cheap. There were flies everywhere, stains on the walls and the furniture is outdated and in need of repair. When you're main selling point is a salad bar and it's not even good, maybe it's time to rethink things.
We enjoyed a casual family dinner for 11 including 5 kids and young adults. It was a festive evening on a busy shore weekend and we were pleased that the restaurant would take reservations for a large group. Food was fresh, sea food was excellent and the casual atmosphere overlooking the fishing docks was terrific. Our children and grandchildren asked us why we had not been there before. We all loved it.
