Went down the shore and stopped by The Shrimp Box for an early dinner. Service was excellent and so was the food. We had the stuffed shrimp and the broiled seafood trio. Both were delicious.

The seafood is varied but always reliable. Broiled, grilled or fried fresh fish, shrimp, clams or great raw bar. Outside seating in season, we prefer inside, a/c in summer. They have a sunset menu, salad bar or soup, entree with sides, dessert and coffee. I felt like I was dining with my parents, but that's ok sometime. Good service all... More

Our first time there. We stopped by for lunch. We shared the 1/2 lobster and fried clams and oysters lunch specials. Both meals included salad bar, beverage and dessert. Everything was very good. The prices are quite reasonable too. Our waitress Blake was very friendly and professional. Since we were there off season parking was easy and there was no... More

My wife and I just had dinner at the Shrimp Box in Point Pleasant, NJ. It really couldn't have been much better! Thanks to the hostess, we were lucky enough to get an inside booth along the windows facing the inlet, just as the sun was setting. Our food was excellent... I had the seafood trio and wife had the... More

This place is very good. I would definitely recommend making reservations for here. It's very small. Their salad bar was a disaster when we went there. The food is a little pricey for small portions.

Due to the recent storm the interior has been upgraded and is quite pleasant. Food is hot, tasty and reasonably priced. I had gone here years ago and not returned. Several recent visits have been very good. Sunset Dinner is an excellent value. Service is quick and attentive.

We always make a point to visit the Shrimp Basket on our visits to the Gulf Coast. Very friendly service and good food. A great place to take young children.

Made a 7:00 Reservation on Open Table. We found forty-fifty people waiting to be seated. Everyone had a reservation. To make matters worse, while waiting I went on Open Table and discovered that the restaurant was accepting reservations at 7:15 and at fifteen minute intervals. I've been kept waiting at other restaurants, but at least they stopped accepting reservations. It's... More
