We went for dinner as so many reviews of the hotel said they went to this restaurant and it was great. We found it overpriced - particularly when you see the prices of other restaurants nearby, and the staff were grumpy. They don't take credit cards, only cash. They had no white wine. I ordered a club soda and it... More

My family and I stopped at The Shrimp Factory after touring Matazalan as it was recommended by our tour guide. The place was nearly empty when we arrived (around lunchtime) so we got right in. The staff that seated us were helpful and friendly. The wait staff was not as warm and friendly but did look after our every need.... More

We stopped in this fun little open air restaurant just before lunch. It was already hopping. We had no problem finding a table. Chips and sauce were plentiful. The beer was cold and the shrimp was hot and delicious. Shrimp is my favorite food so I had to eat it in the shrimp capital. I ordered beer battered, my husband... More

We have eaten here many times over the years. Just recently went back and had coconut shrimp and garlic butter shrimp. They do not have a kids menu but offer chicken strips/fries and a hamburger. The coconut shrimp come with a fruit salsa that is excellent and taste like Pina colada sauce. Unfortunately they no longer accept credit cards -... More

Ordered a sampler for lunch here. It came with breaded shrimp, fish, shrimp cocktail, lobster, was very good but over priced. It was offered as a sampler for two but we shared it with three and it was enough food for all of us.

If you like shrimp this it the place for you! They offer peel and eat shrimp and shrimp cooked different ways. The grilled shrimp was a bit on the bland side but still good.

One of the most expensive meals of our vacation was the worst tasting. We ordered the shrimp sampler meal for two. The shrimp was overcooked and the sauces tasted like they came out of a big industrial food service jar. Recommend you go elsewhere for a good meal. The only nice thing I can say about this restaurant is that... More

Last year we were disappointed and this year we had one of the best meals we have had so far this trip. When we arrived I asked the guy if they still gave a free margarita with the meal and he said yes. He would not give my husband a free beer, but he did bring us margaritas and we... More

We ate at this restaurant twice during our recent stay in Mazatlan. It was very good both times and the service was excellent.

Shrimp is fresh and tasty, service is great. We went twice during our last trip! We split combo one the first time, and thought we'd have to grab a snack afterwards on our way back to the hotel, but it's much more food that you'd expect. The salsa was prepared for us tableside, and is so delicious. When they bring... More
