Had the best surf and turf in the state of new Jersey the steak you can tell was freshly butchered and the lobster tail was not a generic lobster tail. Me and my wife celebrated our one year anniversary and it was awesome only complaint is the seating even tho reservation was made still took a while. Will be back again

Excellent value, appetizer, salad bar, entree and dessert all for $32! Food was tasty and portions were generous. Been coming here for years and will keep doing so. Also, table by the window, thank you!

Been here many times. Food is great and service is always prompt. Alaskan King Crab legs are pricy but worth it!!

My husband and I enjoyed one of the special dinners
during Restaurant Week. Never been here before so we gave it a try. The dinner we both chose was a great variety of fish prepared perfectly! We also had an appetizer and dessert. The waitress was terrific - taking our order and making sure everything was ok. We will return!

Not the first time we have eaten here wont go back. Not because the food was bad in fact it was good! You are served by seasoned waiters and waitresses but rushed through the whole meal. Even as your eating their sweeping and cleaning around you at 915 on a Saturday night? It’s ridiculous where is everyone running ? In fact when we were done with our meal our waiter tried skipping our dessert order. No mistake just hurry and get everyone out . If you want plate after plate tossed at you, this is the place to go.

My boyfriend has raved about toShrimp Box many many times and kept saying he wanted to take me there for a nice night out. Well, instead I surprised him last Saturday for an early birthday dinner. I had made reservations but when we got there, we saw two open spots at the far corner of the bar so we opted for there instead. We usually prefer the bar anyway. Our bartender/waiter was awesome and the food was even better!!
Everything came out in a timely manner if not faster than expected and everything was delicious. We will definitely be coming back a lot more!

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.

Nancy and I first visit to the shore and what grand time we had the scenery reminded me of home. Whenever we return we'll be sure to return to our secret place.
Thank you for making our first date special

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.
