Spring Break First visit Large. Menu. Checked out reviews - thought to try. Food was good but service at 1:30 pm was extremely slow. Our server needed a little more zest. Wished server next to us was ours. Extremely informative about Forrest Gump. Appetizer platter very good and filling. Coconut shrimp - Awesome!

Typical tourist cash cow. Food was okay. Pretty expensive but nothing you can't find elsewhere tastier and for less money. Craft beer was listed in the menu, but wasn't available. Waitress was unfamiliar with the menu, but was a courteous server. Pretty sure she was new, so no big deal. Enjoyed the movie trivia. Kinda of thing you have to... More

Food was TERRIBLE, expensive, and the service was awful. Macaroni with shrimp appetizer still had shells on the shrimp. Long wait lines, but lots of tables that were free of customers filled with used plates, cups, utensils while the manager walked around looking lost instead of cleaning tables and managing/helping the one person trying to clean tables. Hard to find... More

Loved the atmosphere at this famous name restaurant. Outside the door is Forest Gump's park bench where you can sit with his shoes on for a picture op. Yummy shrimp dishes and friendly staff. Be ready for your Trivia quiz!

Mr. Fertitta would be pissed! 45 minute wait no problem. 48 minutes for appetizer not to arrive. We decided to wait 10 more minutes to no avail! Totally apathetic wait staff! Oh yes they don't serve Dr. Pepper We walked out!

Shrimper's Heaven is just amazing. I think my kids enjoyed the build a sundae tray more than anything. Our waiter was polite and while he was busy, he was super efficient. Much appreciated.

The staff took care of 40 or so of us with ease even though we had probably 20 separate checks! They were attentive and fast and friendly and even played games with us while we waited for our food (I wish I had brushed up on my Forrest Gump trivia!). I was super impressed with the staff. It was a... More

We had to wait 45 minutes to get seated. That would be fine normally, but when we went in, the space was virtually empty. I counted 14 open tables around us. So why did we have to wait 45 minutes? Some of the tables that were empty around us remained uncleared of food, trash and a water that spilled towards... More
