Being connected to Schlitterbahn, we had our reservations. The food was outstanding. Service was equally impressive. Highly recommend trying Shrimp Haus out. It is can be a bit pricey but portions are large.

Thanks for stopping by. The Shrimp Haus is an independent, year-round entity and rated among the best restaurants on the island (as well as a preferred caterer for the local CVB). We appreciate your kind words and look forward to seeing you back soon. Mike

We enjoy this place each visit to Padre. We love the shrimp selections and fajitas are very good as well. Nice view of the ocean and usually not overcrowded and calm. We enjoyed some great acoustic guitar and songs while we ate a peaceful meal...More

Celebrated our mother's 80th birthday here and could not have been happier. Food was excellent and our server, Felysha, was outstanding. 6 of us all ordered something different and everyone loved it!

To say that I’m embarrassed and shocked at this breakdown from service to food and drink quality is an understatement and extremely surprising. We use only fresh ingredients and hand bread all of our shrimp. For the Manager to completely take the situation as a...More

We spent almost a week in SPI and this was by far the best food we had on the island! We ate there twice while on our vacation. The staff was super amazing and fun! I highly recommend it! You won’t be disappointed!!
