My wife and I got off the interstate, on our way home from Disney, to eat at one of our favorite restaurants in the area only to find it closed down. Looking around for another place to eat, I had her get on Trip Advisor which led us to the Shrimp Boat. The menu was relatively simple and easy to... More

The restaurant my husband and I tried to go to closed, so we looked for a new place and found this one. We are certainly happy with our find! At 2:30 on a Sunday afternoon, we were surprised to find a restaurant so full, but we were seated immediately. Our waitress was friendly & knowledgeable about the menu. Shortly after... More

They have good food and good quality but small portions for the price. I would go back but will try other places first

We had a late lunch and ordered the specials of lobster bisque and prime rib sandwiches. Both were delicious. The soup had real chunks of lobster and the sandwich was on homemade bread with havarti cheese and aujus. There was not a speck of fat on the thinly sliced prime sandwich that was piled high! The service was great and... More

Returned for another year to Shrimp Boat (actually twice). The owners son is now in charge of the menu. Once again, great food,reasonably priced. Wife had Corned Beef and Cabbage-delicious. I had snapper- very,very good. Went for lunch both times.

You will be satisfied with your visit. The location is just south of town and you will be happy with the food. Give it a try

Who would have thought that the best prime rib in the Brandon area would be at a place thought of as a seafood restaurant? They only serve it on certain days and will run out on occasion so call ahead, just not ahead of me! Trust me, it's worth the effort!!!

Great service. Great food. Thai Shrimp bites you have to try. They are fab. The atmosphere is average. All servers are so busy but yet very attentive. I highly recommend this establishment for lunch or dinner. They stopped serviing one of the best crab cakes ever. Do not know why. When in Brandon. Try the Shrimp Boat.

Ate at Shrimp Boat a week ago with my sister who was visiting from Kentucky. I had taken her to the previous location and she was a bit skeptical about trying it again. However, she turned out to be very happy with the whole experience. Our seating was comfortable, our server was very good and every piece of food we... More

We ate there twice during a recent visit and had very good food both times, oysters on the half shell were superb and the ceviche was excellent.

Thank Randy L
