We moved to Rock about 2 years ago and have slowly been trying new places. We saw the reviews on The Shrimp Boat and stopped by to eat lunch, It was AWFUL! We ordered the fish and fantail shrimp. It was so overcooked that it was border line ready to be threw into the garbage. I Hate to have to... More

The shrimp boat is a good place to eat even though i always get mine to go. I always get my husband and i the flounder plate and we share it cause its enough for 2. The only thing i dont like is the slaw it has way to much mayo and not enough vinegar to give it that tangy... More

I read about this place in a top 10 places to eat in SC so thought it must be great. It's terrifying on the outside, but we drove to see what all the hype was about so we went inside. The service was very friendly. However, the food was seriously average. I left hungry and a little disappointed that it... More

Found this absolute gem getting off the Interstate for lunch. Place was packed and waited about 30 minutes to get food. I would have waited hours. Beautifully fried chicken, moist, tasty with light batter and a seasoning that I can't stop thinking about today. We tried to buy it (the seasoning) and was promptly shot down. Wife was threatening to... More

Love this place. Have been going for many years. I have had the fried chicken breast before and chicken tenders. Both are very good. Chicken is always moist. Also, I used to work for a security company and worked on this place's security. Going in the back and been in the back it was always very clean. I have been... More

Been here a few times and never disapointed. Always look up Peggy and the rest of the staff are just as friendly. Get the chicken better than mom's. Husband gets the pork chop. Never greasy and the coating the best. Someday I am really going to try the shrimp.

This is my favorite place to get fried chicken. We dont eat it often but if I have a choice, this is my go to place. The chicken is always crispy and juicy without being too greasy. Their dinners are served with frys that are alright. But what really compliments the chicken is the slaw and dinner roll. Just good... More

My son and I went during the week to have lunch. We heard great things about Shrimp Boat. The place was very busy. This is a walk in wait on line, order, pick a table and wait for your order type of place. You cannot get a drink, silverware or condiments without the waitstaff.As far as I could tell, there...

I came here to have fried chicken as per a recommendation from a person at work. I was very happy with my restaurant selection. This is a no frills place, but I got exactly what I wanted - very good fried chicken. I will return here someday if I am in the area again. Staff was friendly and very nice.

We went hoping for some good shrimp. But it was frozen and fried hard. Very disappointed. The people serving us told us they were known for their fried chicken
