This is an unassuming place that promotes " The Best Shrimp". My wife and I decided to give it a try since it was open air and right on the drag where we could people watch, plus it had entertainment. We were surprised at the experience---fresh iced tea served with a liquid agave nectar for sweetening and the shrimp was... More

Husband and I visited this restaurant which has wonderful, inviting, open patio seating during our first trip to Mazatlan. Unfortunately, the lovely patio was the only thing this restaurant can boast. Being the only patrons during the dinner hour on a Friday evening should have been our first clue that this establishment has serious issues. Where can I begin to... More

We fully enjoyed the restaurant, resonable. Had a Georgia peach martini, very good. Had peach cobbler delicious. Our waiter Chandler was awesome, most definitely would ho again.

A local suggested we visit this restaurant and I am so glad they did. The food and service were so good and I was shocked at how reasonable the prices were. They also have the Open Table reservation option which made it easy to get a table for six without a wait. I had the shrimp and grits and I... More

This place is a tourist trap so of course it's overpriced and not that great. I don't even know why we ate here but we really wanted some fresh shrimp and we got what we wanted. Wait, now I remember why we ate here -- we had a coupon for a free margarita! Oh yeah, free booze will do it... More

What a cool spot to stop for lunch. We came here as park of an open top bus tour and really glad we did because the service and the food was TREMENDOUS! Not having a lot of time (as we didn't want to miss our return bus), we decided on the assorted shrimp for two plate. Great choice as it... More

The Shrimp Factory is always our first night's dinner place. Great food and service. Bring a Sharpie Marker to write your names and dates of visit on the ceiling or the walls.

Shrimp sold by the kilo (or half or less)! Large, firm, fresh shrimp ..and plentiful; as much as you want to order!! We enjoyed a mid-afternoon snack which meant we had the place to ourselves, cooled off from the sun and could take a break from shopping/walking. Prices are mid-range. Would recommend.

One of our favorite restaurants in Mazatlán. We go there multiple times during our stay. Within walking distance to Hotel Playa Mazatlán.

First of all, expect to be harassed by people selling you things the entire time you are there. We were not able to enjoy our meal because we were constantly being interrupted by salespeople inside the restaurant. The shrimp was great we really enjoyed it but it is definitely overpriced. Which is normal in the tourist areas. Their coconut shrimp... More
