Our servers name was Blake. She was OUTSTANDING! She checked in on us often but was not intrusive. I would definitely go back and request her.

                                                              I ordered the trio. Unfortunately the vegetables tasted like they were previously frozen. The shrimp were good, the scallops were chewy snd the stuffed flounder was good. Nothing was outstanding which was surprising as I enjoy going to the Shrimp Box. I guess they had an off day.

                                                              Place was packed on this first Sunday of the season. Had a 5:30 reservation for a window booth & had to wait 20min- walk-ins were told the wait time was 40min. The wait staff was hustling, yet still pleasant. We always go for the Sunset Dinner, & the broiled scallops were delicious and perfectly cooked. The absolute best place for scallops! Only disappointment was running out of carrot cake!

                                                              We went for the Sunset menu on a Friday night. The choices were numerous. The food came out in a reasonable amount of time and was delicious. Two of us had the honey Salmon. It was excellent. The vegetables were also very good. My husband had stuffed shrimp which he liked very much and my friend’s husband had a seafood trio which he wolfed down I no time. The meal included dessert and coffee as well as salad bar and was an excellent value. Service was very good. We will be back soon.

                                                              Shrimp Box is one of our favorite restaurants for several reasons. It has amazing views, great service, and delicious food. Sadly, it will close for 2 months a couple of weeks (for the winter season, as it does every year). We had to get in one more time before it closed. It is kind of wonderful coming here off-season, as there is virtually no wait. The food is always fresh, and the salad bar is the best! The service is professional and friendly. I asked for a drink they don't normally make, but they made it perfectly (a Hot Toddy). Go soon, or wait till the spring.

                                                              First time trying this place. It was our anniversary. The staff was friendly and the place was beautiful. We ordered drinks and i ordered the Prosecco which was given to me in a miniature bottle but it was barely cold. We ordered an appetizer and it was Eh. My husband got the filet mignon as his meal & i got the surf and turf which came with the filet & lobster tail. The steak had zero seasoning and was dry, vegetables seemed like the were out of a bag and super mushy. And the lobster tail was just not right, half way through eating it i actually felt like i couldnt swallow it because it didn’t awful. I said i would give this place 1 more chance but i wasn’t a fan at all.

                                                              We had a wonderful dining experience at The Shrimp Box. It was a special occasion and we wanted to talk over a glass of wine before ordering. Our Server was most accommodating and allowed us to dine at our leisure. Before we knew it, we were the only ones left, but the Server never hurried us or announced closing. She was absolutely terrific throughout. The food (twin lobster tails for both) was perfectly cooked and served hot. The Salad Bar could have had a few more items, but everything was fresh and crisp. The Carrot Salad was especially good. We had a great time and are looking forward to returning. Kudos to our excellent Sever and the entire team at The Shrimp Box.

I am not a seafood enthusiast, yet there is always something delicious for me on the menu. We visited during restaurant week and they had a wonderful 3 course varierty to choose from. Since we arrived early, several people from our group chose from the sunset menu, which also included soup or salad bar and dessert. Our waitress was fantastic; we were there for almost 2 hours. There was no rush to get us out.

He loved it the atmosphere was great, intergenic, our waitress Blake was amazing, great personality, attitude, attentive, we never had to wait for or want anything. Bring each course was timed perfectly. I don't know who enjoyed it more my boyfriend or myself.

Great food and service. My husband had the crab cake sandwich, i had the flounder. Both were very tasty. Fries were perfectly done, coleslaw was creamy and delicious! We had a table by the window looking out on the water. It couldn't have been a better day!!
