Nice lunch spot. Decent food. Usually get the fish sandwich and lobster bisque or new england clam chowder. Boats are fun to watch coming into the marina. We went here for lunch after a 90 degree beach day. We had our small well behaved poodle with us that will sit in his own seat the entire time. We were a... More

I recently had the opportunity to return to NJ. While there, I enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Shrimp Box. Having worked there many years ago, I was interested in experiencing the restaurant and food from the other side of the table. I was not disappointed. Both my friend and I chose the sunset menu Chicken Marsala. We enjoyed a... More

Upon entering the Shrimp Box, immediately to your left are the restrooms. It is unfortunate that the overwhelming smell of bathroom deodorizer is the first impression of this restaurant. Not to mention, the salad bar is located just passed the lobby so the bathroom smells follows you to the salad. Food was mediocre. I order fried shrimp. It wasn't crunchy... More

The seafood selection is excellent and the product is always fresh. Service at the shrimp box is a ten. They have full bar service and the drinks are made well. With your meal you have a choice of soup or the salad bar. The salad bar is great. Always a meal you can depend on.

My BF and I came here for the surf and turf deal with the salad bar. Both of us are picky with steak and lobster tail, and I have to say both were delish and cooked perfectly! The salad bar was very good too with a good variety. We sat in a booth near one of the windows and watched... More

We always eat on their outside deck called "Outside of the Box". Service is always good as is the food. My last visit was meeting some friends for lunch. I had a spinach salad with grilled shrimp. Very good! I've had various fish entrees here as well and it has always been very good. One of our favorite restaurants to... More

Stopped in for late lunch in the fall after not being able to get in during the summer as there was always people waiting outside. We were not disappointed. Had a nice table by the window and got to look out at the working docks across the water. Food was enjoyable as always. Love their salad bar.
