We went there for a birthday dinner on a recommendation from a friend. We arrived around 645pm and there was no wait. The hostess and staff were friendly and attentive. They serve bread/cracker style sticks with a crab dip. It was very tasty with alittle zing. We ordered stuffed shrimp, crab cakes, and a fried platter. The food was very... More

We were looking for a casual seafood dinner and stumbled upon Mr . Shrimp. The service was excellent and the atmosphere very casual. Most importantly the food was fresh and well prepared and the prices fair and reasonable. Excellent choice. We will be back

Hostess was friendly. Waitress was very attentive even on a busy Saturday night. We started with the mussels marinara for an appy. The scrod, fish and chips were very fresh. The linguini and clam sauce was delicious. We finished with the banana tart and orange cake both very fresh. Prices were very reasonable. Very nicely decorated but nothing to absorb... More

If you love shrimp or any seafood, Mr. Shrimp is your place at the Jersey Shore. In fact, some call Mr. Shrimp the place for "shrimp snobs." I understand what that means now. Their quality of shrimp is the best. You won't be disappointed.

My g.f. and I went to Mr. Shrimp for the first time last night. We have passed by this restaurant many times and kept saying we would try it. We didn't expect it to be so nice inside since the outside gives the impression it is a Fish Market and Eat in place. My neighbor told me months ago they... More

The food rates a 5 in my book. We've been visiting Mr Shrimp for many years and its menu items continue to please our seafood palate. The owner and chef do a great job of pleasing customers. There's no 'view' and it can get a little noisy but if not in need of an ambiance setting and you like seafood... More

My friends love this place but we live out of town and it was my first visit. Lots more seating than expected. Nicer inside than expected. I had Manhattan Clam Chowder as did my kids and it was delicious. The grouper special was fantastic. I asked for it blackened and it was spicy, juicy and perfect. Everyone else loved the... More

This was our first visit to Mr. Shrimp. It had been recommended by a number of friends. The restaurant is very austere in its overall looks and atmosphere and a bit on the noisy side. We had a table of 8 and about 50% weren't crazy about the food and the others thought it was good but not great. Prices... More
