We grew up on the East Coast but moved to Phoenix, Arizona. The only fish available in Arizona is frozen like a rock. So on visits to see our family on the East Coast we always make an effort to find fresh fish. The Shrimp King which is a family run restaurant and fish market was 2 minutes from our... More

My family and I love dining at Shrimp King. The food can't get anymore fresh and it is incredibly tasty. Also, everybody there is very friendly.

The take out fresh seafood is always good. Always fresh. The decor of the restaurant is not great. The seafood is always good. the sides? not great. I would always pick some place else to eat if I had the choice.

If more people were aware of this place it would probably have lines standing out the door. Its hard to find quality places to eat, this one of those places. FOOD IS GREAT thanks... More

It was around 1 pm on Sunday. Quiet, so very quick service. French fries came quite a bit later then the other food, but not a big deal. Had a lentil soup, fried cod. This all for 11 USD only. Not a fancy place. Maybe the carpet needs a renewal.

I have only purchased take-out food from Shrimp King. Their main attribute is absolutely FRESH, delicious seafood. The clams, King-crab and shrimp have always been excellent, never a problem. The service is prompt and offers good suggestions for cooking the fish. I would highly recommend this store for those who want absolute fresh, good quality seafood.

I visit Shrimp King roughly every ten days to pick up fish for a few days. I usually order 6 ten ounce portions of broiled salmon, 5 ten ounce portions of broiled cod and pound or so of shrimp. Although I live a healthy lifestyle beware of the fried flounder sandwich, it's addicting. The owners are great and so is... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner here, a quick detour from the highway, as we were traveling. We were so glad we hadn't settled for a chain restaurant. For diner prices, we each had a superb fish dinner in a cheerful "taverna"-style environment. I had tuna, medium rare, that was really exquisitely fresh and tender. My friends chose a variety of...

Don't be put off by the very very basic decor. The fish is fresh and they are having an incredible Lobster Special--1 3/4 pound lobster with sides for $19.95. We just went back for our second time and friends we have recommended agree with our rave review. The Lobster special has been on since August and will definitely continue through... More

I visited Shrimp King with some friends on a Saturday night. I truly was impressed with the quality of the food that was served. The staff was very attentive and went out of their way to make our dining experience a great one. The quantity was plentiful and enough for a take out box. The prices were very reasonable. I...
