The service is really good, the water view is pretty and the seafood is fresh! The outside the box is great in the summer too.

Got together with friends for a birthday dinner.. Food and service (Christine) was excellent. Sunset dinner well worth going out early, all meals presented at the same time, everyone enjoyed the sale bar and deserts..

I would always give a restaurant with very good fish and an excellent selection at least a 4. Last night they got a 3. One simple reason. When the waitress delivered one of the drinks to the table the lime on the side of the glass fell off and onto the menu. She picked it up with her hand and... More

Easter Sunday. We often go for dinner here when we go down to PPB. A bit disappointed in the seating. We were back against the wall. Very nice waiter. Son and I had baked stuffed lobster. Good but mine was dry in claws. Wife had fried flounder. She said ok. Salad bar was great as usual. These guys have been... More

Originally went there back in the 1970's. Returned in 2012 and 2017. It is worth the trip. Ask for a booth, as the few of the river is great. Get there before 6:00pm and many dinner specials are discounted. In the summer, the restaurant is really busy (nightly), but both times in April was not the bad. The Shrimp Box... More

Been going to the Shrimp Box for over 15 years and it's always a great meal at a great price! During The summer months it gets crowded but if your willing to wait. It's always a good time.

Tried the clams, mussels, crab cakes and lobster bisque. No complaints! The parking lot was pretty full for a Monday but the wait was less than 5 minutes. The view of the bay is awesome. Service by Denise was polite and fast. Dessert was the Reeses torte....amazing. Would definitely go back.

The food is to die for! The Sunset Dinner Menu is excellent in price and selection. Our family has had everything form the simple Sunset Dinners to a full blown large Birthday party requiring one of the banquet areas. Our favorite spot and I'd bet it will be added to many others "favorites" list!

Watching the boats right outside the windows are peaceful. Great food with good sized portions. Whether you like seafood or not, there is something for you. Clean restaurant and efficient staff. Usually busy, so give yourself time.
