The Shrimp Box & Outside The Box Patio Bar
My wife and I went out for “date night”, nothing special just another Monday Night.
We enjoyed our experience and will return. For appetizers I had the “blackened steak bites” and she had the “Muscles Marinara”. Both were excellent, the Marinara was outstanding. For dinner I had the “Four Way Shrimp” and my wife had the “Broiled Trio”, both were Fantastic.
Dessert .... not good, skip dessert, head to the Boardwalk and pick something up.
The atmosphere was nice, waterfront causal dining, the commercial boats are moored right across the water.
It wasn’t cheap, but we felt the food was worth it so I gave the good marks on value.
We will be back.
Accommodated a large group very well. Good food, friendly staff.
Always a favorite of ours. Food was prepared properly and service was good. Salad bar had a good variety of items to choose from.
I absolutely cannot get enough of this place! The food is incredible every time. Very fresh seafood. Not to mention you cannot beat the service and view.
Delicious food, service and atmosphere!
Locals can go on Mondays and Tuesdays in the summer!
The fish was so fresh and delicious. Got the Sunset meal which includes beverage and dessert. The salad bar was perfect for me. I would highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner
Enjoyed our 45th Anniversary. Had a wonderful waiter. Sat in window area. Casual, relaxed atmosphere. Would love to visit again.
Having been here before, I expected great service and we certainly got it. The server was cordial, professional and attentive. We had to change our reservation time and they were most amenable. The food was excellent and and my dining companion was most impressed. I go here again and again for very good reason and that's because it's a terrific dining destination.
This place never disappoints; there is something for everyone, the service is top notch, and you can bet on tasty, creative specials. It sounds funny, but the salad bar is amazing.. I love the pasta salad and cole slaw. The portions are quite large so you’re likely to have some food for lunch the next day; you get a great value and fresh flavorful food. Wonderful atmosphere overlooking the water and fishing boats. Love it here.
4 of us love to meet at the Shrimp box in May or early June before summer crowds. we had delicious lunch of 2 flounder francaise, 2 soft shell crabs and one fried flounder sandwich. 2 of our meals included soup and dessert. good value for the price. good server. love the water view from our booth. rest rooms are clean.
The salad bar was so fresh and plentiful. The main course was delicious. Great service. The setting on the water was perfect. It is becoming our favorite restaurant.
The 2lb lobster was very tough this time. Also there was something in the bread, which looked like a mouse dropping. We brought this to the attention of the waitress and she quickly removed the bread.
Shrimp Box never disappoints. Our service and food were excellent as always. It can get a little hard to hear with the higher noise level but worth it to go there anyway.
First time back this season - but the Shrimp Box never disappoints. Friendly staff, great food, large and interesting menu choices, and water-front dining. Always great!
The Shrimp Box is a Jersey Shore favorite. The food is always fresh and delicious and you can't beat the view. Family owned and operated and the staff is always so nice and accommodating.
We were sat next to a big family with noisy babies . There were other tables that were open when they sat us . It was very difficult for my husband and I to talk to our friends .
We had to return the shrimp because it was over cooked and tough . Very underwhelmed abd disappointed .
Everything was wonderful and delicious. Food came out nice and hot and waitress was wonderful.
Great food and great service
A little noisy but food makes it palatable
Excellent food and service! Favorite place for seafood!
Came with four people for a special lunch. My special request for a table by the window was all set for me which was very nice. Our waitress, who has been there a long time, was great and fun. The salad bar is a nice touch and the salads are good. The meals were good, portions fine. We enjoyed our lunch.
Great food and atmosphere
The day was very good. Love that place. Prices reasonable.
The food is excellent here. We had seating from 6pm to 8pm on a Tuesday and it was very busy. There was a waiting list so i was glad we made a reservation for our party of 4. The beautiful sunny and mild day brought out the many hungry patrons. I had a shrimp special menu dish and it was just wonderful. If you want a delicious meal, don't hesitate to select this restaurant. It was our first meal there and it will not be the last. Enjoy!

They have the best salad bar anywhere. Everything was so fresh. Main meal was delicious. Service was perfect.
Good meal at a long time favorite. Had not been to the Shrimp Box in a while but it did not disappoint my family.
Drinks were great, food was great, service was great.... view was great. Overall great experience. Its been a while since we were there. Need to return more frequently.
The scenic view is what makes me come back to this restaurant. The food is not great, it’s (diner quality), the price per dish for the quality is pricey, the salad bar is good. The service is always outstanding.
Great place for dinner or lunch I would recommend the shrimp box restaurant to anybody looking for a great meal with excellent service and a great choice of menu options
We love the shrimp box! So cozy and tasty.
Food was outstanding. The shrimp and avocado with cilantro lime sauce was delicious as were the scallops. Service was good. Not rushed even though it was busy.
Enjoyed the restaurant week menu. Great value, food was terrific. Our server Renee was very good and was prompt and very cordial. Had a window table with a great view of the boats. Salad bar was an unexpected treat and was very extensive. Will come back in the near future.
This one of my favorite places to eat. Best part is the water view. Great food and service. Only thing i do not like is having to get up to go to salad bar. Especially if your seated in a booth and if your the only one getting salad then everyone needs to get up and move so you can get out of the booth. Its a great salad bar though. I just rather have my salad brought to me .
We have been dining at the Shrimp Box since it opened many, many years ago. It is still our "go to" restaurant. Food is always delicious and the "price is right!" Staff is always smiling and service is excellent.
My family came to the shore to visit my Aunt . She loves the Shrimo Box and it did not disappoint. From young to old , we all easily found something tasty to eat. I believe our server was Linda and she was WONDERFUL. She checked about food allergens and made sure the toddler’s food came out early. She kept beverages filled and was just pleasant and sweet. God willing , we will be back!!
The price fixed menu was outstanding,
blackened tuna bites were great
filet mignon Tremendous.
A wonderful Sunday afternoon at the Shrimp Box.
The food was very good. The waitress seemed very stressed out and testy. Noise level was so loud it was difficult to carry on a conversation. I made online reservations however it did not seem to make any difference because my name was just added to bottom of waiting list.
Always have a geeat meal although it is noisy. Maureen our waitress we had the last visit was so friendly and efficient and attentive, definitely make a reservation, first time this season we tried to go, there was an hour wait at 4 pm!!!
When we made our plans to visit the Shrimp Box, we were not aware it would be during Restaurant Week. The crowd when we arrived might have scare us away if we didn't have a reservation. The valet didn't even know what he was going to do with our car since all lots were full. Three of our party of four decided to order from the Restaurant Week menu and we were pleased to learn that the salad bar was included in addition to the three courses offered. Needless to say, we were 'stuffed' when we left the restaurant. Of particular note, the shrimp/avocado appetizer was outstanding, and would be a wonderful addition to the regular menu. Unfortunately, I cannot remember our server's name, but she was outstanding - particularly with how busy the restaurant was. In spite of the chaotic atmosphere, we had a very enjoyable dinner.
Excellent menu for Restaurant Week!!! Shrimp and Avocado appetizer was amazing. Shrimp and grits was outstanding as was the salmon. Service was excellent!!!
Great food and location!
