Visiting on St. Paddy's weekend I am sure they were tired but they should make sure they have enough staff to work all the hours. Our waitress was asleep on her feet. Very slow and we had to ask twice for some things. The food took forever and was cold. Two people in the party ordered crab legs and were... More

Totally recommend the pine bark soup - just keep in mind it's enough for three people to eat. My dad got a shrimp salad sandwich and loved it. The drinks are good, too, and it's all pretty modestly priced with nice ambiance down on the river 👌🏻

I have been to this restaurant a few times. This time, I received less than stellar service - last time I had great service. I was by myself and I really think people treat single diners poorly - maybe because they think if you are tipping on a total bill, it isn't worth the hassle of giving decent service? I... More

We just happened to stumble on the Shrimp Factory on a rainy, cold night in which we wanted to find something close. Boy were we happy. Food was excellent, drinks were very welcome. We had the filet, shrimp and scallops, and all were excellent. Our server was really attentive, and the food was served hot and relatively fast. I would... More

I went with my sister. We hoped to have fried shrimp. She ordered that but got a seafood platter that was a mound of fried food. I ordered the shrimp and grits on the recommendation of the waiter. Just average. We wouldn't go back.

I enjoyed the whitefish, right on the river, nice area for sightseeing. Good drinks, friendly people. On the pricey side, The whitefish was the best value for the money, in my opinion.

We were fortunate to have Julia wait on our party of 4; she was incredibly honest, not just letting us order boring entrees, but really listening to what we were looking for; the special- shrimp tortellini was fresh, flavorful and on target; the shrimp burgers have large pieces of delectable shrimp and to drink a Peach Long Island...do I need...
