We really enjoyed docking at the Shrimp Box and picking up a wonderful lunch. The food was fresh and tasty. The Restaurant and Bar area was friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go back to try the outdoor area for lunch or dinner.

Delicious lunch at the shore off season! We had family visiting and The Shrimp Box gave us a large table, plenty of room, relaxing meal with “ no rush” visiting time. They do close for the winter so be sure to call ahead. I am...More

Don't come here unless you love seafood and salt air. The food and service are even better than the view, but not by much!

We dined here on a Saturday night and the place was packed. Very puzzling considering how subpar the food was. My guess is that people who have rentals in the area frequent this restaurant out of a habit and not because it's good. That is...More

I have been coming to this restaurant on many occasions over the last few years. The food is always very good. They have an excellent selection of seafood entrees, which are always cooked perfectly. Never overcooked or undercooked. I have enjoyed the salad bar, but...More

Seafood restaurant geared to serving a lot of people quickly. Good service, Food was average at best. The Lobster Bisque was good. The shrimp in the Broiled Seafood Trio were very overdone and hard while the scallops and flounder were short on taste.

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.
