My wife and I were riding around SPI around noon and saw the Schlitterbahn Shrimp Haus. Said it opened at 4 pm. Looked like a really neat place. We saw the sign out front that said special tonight, pecan crusted shrimp. Thought we would try it out. We went back at 6:00 pm and upon being seated we were told... More

Our party of 6 enjoyed our meal here. There were a lot of choices on the menu. While often I'm not a fan of salad bars, this one was pretty good; many things to choose from. Most of us ordered shrimp dishes and were pleased. We weren't a fan of the mashed potatoes though. It was the off-season so it... More

We had a very nice dinner. Seated and waited on right away. Awesome margarita. I had coconut shrimp which was delicious. My husband had chicken fried shrimp and really enjoyed his meal. It was very well presented. The salad bar was very fresh. We would go back, again.

Mike B, Manager at Shrimp Haus, responded to this review

Dale W, Thanks for visiting and glad you enjoyed our coconut shrimp (our most popular) and margaritas (the Island's best!). The chicken-fried shrimp is relatively new to our menu and demonstrates the creativity of our staff to transform a Texas favorite (anything chicken fried) into something so tasty. We look forward to seeing you again soon, Mike More

The Shrimp Haus is open for lunch on weekends and for dinner weekdays (open for both from Christmas - mid-September). I have forwarded your review to our resort manager to see who gave out the incorrect information... More

Ok for a quick bite. Large variety of menu items - especially shrimp items. Service was good. The décor definitely needs an upgrade!

We enjoyed our family visit to the Shrimp Haus. There were very few patrons there since we came off season and we received impeccable service. My husband and I both had the ribeye with blackened shrimp. The steak was very tough, I've had much better for a less expensive price. But the Shrimp was DIVINE. So good. And the loaded... More

Season73, Thanks for the feedback and glad you enjoyed yourselves. While we are best known for our dozens of shrimp options (and Island's best margaritas), I am disappointed that your steak was not up to our usual standards. Our entry boardwalk does contain a pond with several variety of fish and turtles but I can't take any credit for the... More

We arrived about 7pm and asked for an outside table(restaurant was slow with only 4 tables occupied). Hostess said they were closing the outdoor seating, but agreed to seat us when she overheard us discussing going somewhere else. Why they didn't want to utilize outside i don't know because it provided an nice view of the gulf looking over the... More

Restaurant was large and located above a water park. Live music was performed as we ate. Food was decent nothing special, (steak was not cooked to specification) a little on the pricier side for average eats. Service was ok. It did have a nice wood platform which walked out to a section of beach.

Mike B, Manager at Shrimp Haus, responded to this review

Elizabeth R, We appreciate you dining with us and am disappointed we did not meet your expectations and hopefully you allowed us to correct the temperature you wanted your steak cooked at. As a separate restaurant that is open year-round, the Shrimp Haus provides a very diverse menu with some great views of both the waterpark and the Gulf of... More
